3.5 of 4

“..worse, we get a feeling we’ve seen it all before..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..what appeared fresh and fun back in 2006 now feels like recycled goods in Happy Feet Two..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the uninhibited musical sensibility remains admirable and infectious..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“..the story jumps among so many characters that none of them matters much, and everything that was fresh and vivid in the first film has gone stale..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..the sequel's themes of friendship and interdependency fail to generate much momentum..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
2 of 4

“..the opening twenty minutes are a mad, random jumble of characters, situations, voices and song..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..the movie is swathed in visual rapture..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..the movie has absolutely everything except the light touch required for unaffected charm..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
2 of 4

“..it's hard not to feel the desperation behind the film's hyperactive invention..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
3.5 of 4

“..has less to do with the now-mandatory upgrade to 3D than with an increased command of texture and light..”
by Sam Adams [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..encourage audiences to overlook how random and haphazard its narrative is..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]
“..an amiable sequel with not much on its mind other than funny and creaky jokes, and waves of understated beauty..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“.."Happy Feet Two" is plotted so that a bunch of disparate things happen, until it's time to end the movie..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
