REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  2 of 5 [Rate It]

2 of 4

“..this is "Transformers" without the Bumblebee Camaro, a lot of action, a few one-liners, and a lot of gunplay. And it was entrusted to the director of the Justin Bieber concert documentary. How good can it be?..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
“..this action-packed Hasbro no-brainer is like a visit to the world's biggest gun..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..the film's nowhere near as sturdy, trundling out middling action and nonsensical plotting..”
by Josh Winning [Total Film]
“..G.I. Joe: Retaliation, which features no performances of note, even from such combat-tested thespians as Bruce Willis, Jonathan Pryce and Dwayne Johnson..”
by Mark Jenkins [NPR]
2.5 of 5

“..dumb fun can be, well, fun. "G.I. Joe: Retaliation" is way too much of the former and not nearly enough of the latter..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

LATEST REVIEWS

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan’s Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
