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

GABBAR IS BACK :

“..dumbed down to a ridiculous degree, the film - directed by hotshot Telugu director Krish - tries to be a less-pathetic version of Salman Khan’s Jai Ho and might have succeeded on that count were it not for an absolutely daft script..”
by Raja Sen [Rediff]

RIDE :

“..Hunt, who also wrote and directed, didn't take her own advice. There's not a surprise in this entire movie..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

CAS & DYLAN :

“..Priestley shows a steady eye for detail in his first time as director, although he lets the film stray too much into TV territory..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

ANY DAY :

“..built on a number of ludicrous contrivances, Any Day eventually pushes its disparate pieces together into a misguided and oddly unsettling storyline..”
by Kate Erbland [The Dissolve]

HYENA :

“..there's something interesting in the way he [Gerard Johnson] deliberately denies his characters and the viewers any reprieve..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

WELCOME TO ME :

“..a dark comedy that succeeds on its own itchy terms..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

FAR FROM THE MADDING CROWD :

“..works on all levels. Foremost, it is brilliantly directed by Thomas Vinterberg..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

CLEVELAND ABDUCTION :

“..involving violence, sexual assault, torture, and, above all, captivity, abduction stories are a catch-all for the women-in-peril narrative that is the core theme of so many Lifetime movies..”
by Molly Eichel [A.V. Club]

THE WATER DIVINER :

“..the overstuffed story feels bombastic and contrived..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

LITTLE BOY :

“..though occasionally sticky sweet and not always subtle, it's also a smart and very moving story..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
