“..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

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..”

LATEST REVIEWS

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
