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

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

MOMMY :

“..the same elements that have endeared or alienated viewers of Dolan's previous films are all here in Mommy..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]

BLACK SEA :

“..Scoot McNairy is a terrifically spineless, whining mouthpiece for the adventurer who financed the journey, and Ben Mendelsohn is a terrifying underwater psycho. The whole thing adds up to a watery grave of claustrophobia-but that can be pretty terrifying..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

SONG ONE :

“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
