“..the remainder of "Boom" is a predictable blend of Adam Sandler-style gross-out moments and underdog-boosting set to oldies rock..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
2 of 4

“..the pure mechanics of "Here Comes the Boom" land it in an enjoyable, if forgettable, space..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]
2 of 4

“..the movie then becomes a kind of "Rocky"/"Warrior" meets "Mr. Holland's Opus," by way of "Glee"..”
by Janice Page [Boston Globe]
1.5 of 5

“..the film works hard at its inoffensiveness..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
2.5 of 5

“..the film is still middle-of-the-road fare for comedy fans who are already firmly in James' corner, delivering the sort of brainless laughs that James is famous for..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
3 of 5

“..the characters aren't distinctive enough to give the movie the beloved status of, say, "School of Rock."..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]
2.5 of 4

“..shares much in common with last year's melodrama "Warrior"..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]
2.5 of 5

“..may be a montage-heavy rip-off of fight films since the beginning of time, but it's at least smart enough to show us Scott Voss trying, and combines moments for the heart with blows to the head in agreeably acceptable fashion..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
Review rate : D+

“..it's a meek, joke-light, would-be crowd-pleaser, content to be merely affable. Like many high-concept, low-output comedies..”
by Nathan Rabin [A.V. Club]
“..has a tendency toward broad-comic morality tales and multiplex populism that often shades into remedial-level pandering..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
Reviewed by John Anderson [Variety]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
