by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
2.5 of 4

“..nothing equals the original film's use of 'Zilla as a symbol of the Atomic Age. But seeing the scaly dude side with Mother Nature against the freaks is almost worth enduring the blather that precedes it..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

by Eric Kohn [indieWIRE]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
by Drew Taylor [Time Out New York]

“..the movie might stir that in you, too..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

“..clunky, ugly and dull mash-up of a mystery about a missing housewife..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
