“..an underwhelming survival thriller..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“.."Heatstroke" starts looking like Adam Sandler's "Blended" more by the minute..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]
2 of 5

“.."Heatstroke" is dealing with enough problems to plausibly ignore that its main character isn't memorable, but what's confounding here is how permissive Purcell is, allowing the film to be forgettable when it offers the opportunity to be so much more..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

THE POSSESSION OF MICHAEL KING :

“..but even then, the film offers some new shudders - King's demonic guest has an affinity for ants, and Jung uses them to unsettling effect..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

IF I STAY :

“.."If I Stay" is a movie of blunt contrasts - not just life vs. death, but also extraversion vs. introversion, classical vs. rock..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]
