REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..they're bad, but not just bad. They are elaborate and obliterating and unsettling and extremely funny, so that audiences end up laughing, yelling and gasping at the same time..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..the films offer up black comedy, provoking laughs at wrong guesses and giggles over an absurd chain of events that results in disaster..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [Hollywood Reporter]

“..the cheap thrills wear off way fast, and we're left with atrocious acting, feeble writing and clueless directing..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
2 of 5

“..occasionally generates that kind of frisson, but it never goes bone-deep..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2 of 4

“..it's the best Final Destination sequel - if you gauge success by overall shock value..”
by Tirdad Derakhshani [Philadelphia Inquirer]
1.5 of 4

“..it's a slack but competently executed film of a script with butterknife-dull dialogue and actors cast because of their "type"..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2.5 of 4

“..it adds a touch of humor and even offers a few knowing winks to previous installments..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..a new wrinkle in how the killings spool out actually makes the film even more predictable..”
by Mike Hale [NY Times]
“.."FD 5" did not raise even a single goose bump - which for a movie that bills itself as horror is not a good thing..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
