REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

“..trouble is, the pic's dialogue-heavy stretches and ambiguous finale could leave ticketbuyers impatient for less chatter and more chomping..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
3 of 5

“..this one's more relaxed in its rhythms..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
“..this movie, it would appear, is looking for the same gravitas-laced trash appeal that made Neeson's over-the-top revenge fantasy Taken such a guilty pleasure..”
“..there's too much Jack London, and, as they systematically pick off the stragglers, too many CGI wolves go unpunched..”
by Brian Miller [Village Voice]
Review rate : C

“..there's graphic gore, but miraculously, the writers also find humor in the men's natural coarseness..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
Review rate : C

“..the film's worst qualities are inevitably its most obvious, from the still-gaudy..”
by Jesse Cataldo [Slant Magazine]
Review rate : C+

“..the film does a largely first-rate job of simulating the punishing environment the characters have to push against..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..technically assured and brutally efficient, with a simple story that ventures into some profound existential territory without making a big fuss about it..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
“..plenty of chase scenes and gory encounters keep tension high..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
“..it's the most philosophical of these movies. It's also the most ambiguous..”
by Wesley Morris [Boston Globe]
“..it's quiet, contemplative, and almost haiku-like in its simplicity..”
by Dana Stevens [Slate]
“..if it ran about 80 mins., The Grey could be a smartish man-against-the-elements thriller..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
Review rate : B+

“..every gutsy action scene is crafted with gritty detail and a muscular unpredictability that dares the audience to guess where it will end up..”
by Cole Smithey [ColeSmithey.com]
Review rate : C+

“..do these Liam Neeson action passion plays, as surely as a new year begins..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
Review rate : C

“..alternately tense and fatuous thriller..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out]
Review rate : C+

“..a lot of muscle and brawn..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

DRAKE'S HOMECOMING: THE LOST FOOTAGE :

“..there's little here for casual Drake listeners, but the film will definitely appeal to diehard fans..”
by Daniel Otis [Toronto Star]

IT FOLLOWS :

“..It Follows is yet another example of how smart the indie horror game is these days..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

BACKCOUNTRY :

“..solid performances from the small cast and robust visuals..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE WALKING DECEASED :

“..the film, directed by Scott Dow, doesn't attempt any meta-ness beyond perfunctory sight gags..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

DO YOU BELIEVE? :

“..a dramatically different type of movie than "God's Not Dead" - different theme, different direction - but many moviegoers will walk away saying it's a better movie..”
by Michael Foust [Christian Post]

GROWING UP AND OTHER LIES :

“..unfocused and ineffective..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]

TRACERS :

“.."Tracers" is fun to look at, if not too bright, and even includes a line I can only assume is a winking reference to Lautner's claim to fame: "There can only be one alpha in every pack"..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

JAUJA :

“..there's a line between artfully contemplative and just plain boring. This film eventually crosses it into Snoozeville..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

DANNY COLLINS :

“.."Danny Collins" is certainly watchable, but don't go expecting much in the way of surprises..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

ZOMBEAVERS :

“..disgusts, terrifies and tickles in equal measure with grotesque creatures and a sickening sense of humor..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]
