Review rate : C

“..without any surface confusion, the essential flimsiness of Larsson's million-selling whodunit is all too visible..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]
“..this is a bleak but mesmerizing piece of filmmaking; it offers a glancing, chilled view of a world in which brief moments of loyalty flicker between repeated acts of betrayal..”
by David Denby [New Yorker]
2.5 of 4

“..the toxic effect of its violence, sometimes unwatchable..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..the religious elements are more heavily featured, literally and visually, and an allegory comes into light for a country with a Nazi past that would rather bury its sins..”
by Radheyan Simonpillai [AskMen.com]
Review rate : B

“..some may be surprised at how similar Fincher's version is to the 2009 Swedish film in plot and mood..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out]
Review rate : C

“..select shots seem showy for showmanship sake..”
by Sean O'Connell [Hollywood News]

by Justin Chang [Variety]

“..more vicious and and also more sweet..”
by Shaun Munro [What Culture]
“..in such a compressed way that there is little sense of lullingly enveloping the viewer into the narrative web..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
4 of 5

“..in less experienced hands, this would surely have wound up as lurid, trashy pulp..”
by Xan Brooks [Guardian [UK]]

by Tim Grierson [Screen International]
Review rate : A

by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]

THE DROP :

“..it isn't as powerful as the previous Lehane-inspired movies, but it has slow-building traction and three terrifically controlled performances..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

SOMETHING WICKED :

“..instead of remaking Bradbury's tale, a semi horror film was derived from Shakespeare's quote - and has little to do with anything except the word Wicked.....”
by James M. Tate [Cultfilmfreak Cinema]

AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR :

“.."At the Devil's Door" doesn't piece together as the eerie, semi-apocalyptic tale it's meant to become..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

BIRD PEOPLE :

“..the new storyline offers some clever moments. But the whimsy isn't enough to warrant staying the night..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

HONEYMOON :

“..a steady dose of newlywed nightmare..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER :

“..you can't help but feel all the palpable joy is eliding some darker realities that would lend the copious musical performances a deeper resonance..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

FINDING FANNY :

“..an original story that is dark, whimsical, witty and irreverent..”
by Priya Joshi [Digital Spy]

MINE GAMES :

“..Mine Games never fully embellishes the idea. Once it finally begins to throw the plot into high gear, it's too little too late. It feels like it's simply retreading old material in a new environment..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

THE GUEST :

“..it's an effectively bloody, breakneck ride, given an extra coat of alluring gloss by the John Carpenter-influenced 1980s styling that is currently all the rage in the genre..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out London]

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH :

“..a highly polished, carefully constructed docu-fiction hybrid..”
by John Semley [Slant Magazine]
