REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

1.5 of 4

“..unremarkable addition to the already overcrowded heist genre, one unlucky bank gets hit twice..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
“..slick but instantly forgettable item has tepid theatrical prospects, though it's the sort of serviceable time-killer that will play forever on cable..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
Review rate : C-

“..Flypaper mingles these two parties with the bank staff, but the sprawling ensemble yields to a story that's so heavily worked-over, it doesn't get much of a chance to breathe..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V. Club]
“..although tempting enough to initially attract audiences, this caper comedy may have trouble getting them to stick around, despite a starry cast..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]
“.."Flypaper" has enough twists and surprises to remain interesting in a closed-room, Agatha Christie kind of way. But it's never quite as clever or as hip as it thinks it is..”
by Rachel Saltz [NY Times]
Reviewed by Aaron Hillis [Village Voice]

CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

WITH THIS RING :

“..the dialogue and complex weave of relationships feel believable and natural. So even if the outcomes don't feel like revelations, they feel right, and the trip to get there feels the same..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

PROJECT ALMANAC :

“..modestly entertaining..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]

JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS :

“..the Justice League members have some great moments to enjoy, although they all take a backseat to the main Aquaman plot..”
by Joshua Yehl [IGN Movies]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
