by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
1.5 of 4

by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

by Louise Keller [Urban Cinefile]
Review rate : B-

“..the film's pieces don't always fit together, but even in isolation, some of those pieces are well worth watching..”
by Tasha Robinson [AV Club]
“..such a pile-up of ambiguity, in the end, looks less like tricksterism than incompetent storytelling..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..pic's climax is a letdown, particularly since it reveals almost nothing further about the killer..”
by Dennis Harvey [Variety]
1.5 of 5

“..it's garbage trying to pass itself off as a stylish, sophisticated horror film..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]

by Brett Michel [Boston Herald]
“..if you're a huge fan of bad screenwriting, Gone may hold your interest for a few minutes..”
by Scott Weinberg [FEARnet]
1 of 5

“..from the sound of that bizarre anti-twist, it would appear that this thriller's original ending evaporated into thin air at some point too..”
by Matt Singer [Time Out New York]

by Kevin Carr [7M Pictures]

LATEST REVIEWS

PADDINGTON :

“..marmaladen with gloriously silly jokes, pitch-perfect performances and incidental detail, this is a warm, witty and wondrously inventive great big bear-hug of a movie..”
by Chris Hewitt [Empire Online]

WILD :

“.."Wild" incorporates beautiful direction, smart writing and brave acting to tell the story of a woman made feral by grief walking from her own darkness into her own light..”
by James Rocchi [Film.com]

GRUMPY CAT'S WORST CHRISTMAS EVER :

“..is surprisingly funny, with the gleefully acerbic screenplay capturing the beloved Grumpy attitude..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]

TOY STORY THAT TIME FORGOT :

“..a lovely yuletide bauble of a Christmas special, all decked out in tinsel and surrounded by brand new toys..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

ZERO MOTIVATION :

“..the film often takes the form of a prank-filled campus co-ed comedy, flattening the narrative into a hormone-and-ego-fueled romp amid a volatile war..”
by Nick McCarthy [Slant Magazine]

BEFORE I DISAPPEAR :

“..too overwrought to really convince or resonate, yet assembled with enough flair to work as a solid calling card for its debuting helmer..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

AFTERMATH :

“..is a total mess..”
by Evan Saathoff [Badass Digest]

THE BABADOOK :

“..Jennifer Kent's impressive first film has the handcrafted feel of a pre-digital shocker..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]
