REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  1 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..there are a few twists, and without giving too much away there are some daddy issues going on over on the bad-guy side of the fence, too..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
“..the special effects sequences are put together with some ingenuity, though the last one shows signs of sloppy digital overkill..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..the film's first hour is more exciting than the second, especially a prolonged car chase through the congested streets of Moscow..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..some may call it mindless mayhem, but here it goes by another name: family values..”
by Soren Anderson [Seattle Times]
“..not surprising, but not overwhelmingly entertaining either..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
“..feels like an ancient throwback, with sneering Russkis, weapons-grade uranium, even a showdown in Chernobyl..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..at 98 minutes, this is by far the shortest of the Die Hard films, the rest of which run more than two hours. But it ends not a moment too soon..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

LATEST REVIEWS

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
