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

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
