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]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
