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]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

FRESH DRESSED :

“..it's still interesting, just not as much fun..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

BOUND TO VENGEANCE :

“..nevertheless attempts to subvert the sadly commonplace "woman in captivity" narrative, but mostly only succeeds in testing the limits of our gore tolerance..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

TEEN BEACH MOVIE 2 :

“..crammed with catchy tunes, bright sunshine and a perpetually beaming cast of wholesome, winning kids..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

TED 2 :

“..MacFarlane's preference for quantity over quality results in a lot of dead air, but the gags that land are howlers, and all of its crudeness (and racism, and sexism, and homophobia, etc.), the movie beats with a real heart..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
