1 of 5

“..The movie's simple-minded lesson that forests are good and development is bad is undercut the minute one pauses to think about how many natural resources were wasted on this sorry excuse for a motion picture..”
by Pam Grady [Boxoffice Magazine]
1.5 of 4

“..the message that needs to be posted at the theater door is "No trespassing"..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]
1 of 4

“..the message of respect for animal life is outweighed by the lack of respect for human beings..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
Review rate : C

“..Still, it's refreshing that the animals don't talk..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
1.5 of 4

“..On the sliding critter-comedy scale, Furry Vengeance falls somewhere between the Chipmunks and the Chihuahua (the one from Beverly Hills)..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2 of 4

“..It's silly stuff, riddled with the predictable bodily function humor and humiliation of adults that kids seem to love..”
by Sue Pierman [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]
“..Furry Vengeance isn't really a movie at all; it's a message provided by the good people at Participant Media..”
by Robert Wilonsky [Village Voice]

“..Furry Vengeance is a slapstick stinker, easily the worst movie of the year..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
1 of 4

“..Fraser has never been more "doofus-y" than in this moronic humiliation comedy, which actually gets dumber as it goes..”
by Jeff Vice [Deseret News]
1.5 of 5

“..By substituting idiocy for entertainment, Furry Vengeance loses both the battle and the war..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
“..a film so exhausting in its mean-spirited unfunny business that it would prompt Al Gore to empty his recycling bin and light a match to the contents - and the plastic bin itself - in full view of news camera crews..”
by Glenn Whipp [LA Times]
“.."Furry Vengeance" is unbearable..”
by Mike Hale [NY Times]
1 of 5

“.."Furry Vengeance" is mercilessly effective in carrying out what its title promises..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
0.5 of 4

“.."Furry Vengeance" is almost impressive. Here's a pro-nature, anti-development family comedy that appears to be made by and for people who never leave the mall..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]

LATEST REVIEWS

LEGEND :

“..while he arguably fails to rein in his leading man (or half of him), screenwriter-turned-director Helgeland has a light touch, leavening the ultra-violence - and there are gory scenes - with a flair for absurdity..”
by Helen O'Hara [Daily Telegraph]

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
