REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..this formulaic urban dance film doesn’t have the right moves..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 5

“..seems as bored with the movie's protagonist as we are..”
by Jessica Johnson [Time Out New York]
2.5 of 5

“..half-cooked subplots, confusingly compressed timelines, and enough awkward edits to make it impossible to full-throatedly endorse this earnest and sympathetic but unsophisticated debut..”
by Kimberley Jones [Austin Chronicle]
“..best of all, "Go for It!" speaks to working-class young women without ignoring issues like race, class tensions and domestic violence. It's never mawkish, even at its understated climax..”
by Andy Webster [NY Times]
“..annoyingly, the dance sequences - mostly club battles between all-female crews - are over-edited mash-ups of close-ups and sloppy camera movement, chopping up the human form in a way that does no credit to the hard work of choreography and technique..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
Review rate : B+

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”

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..”
