REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..with its fairy-tale tinge, the film has neither the fever-dream discomfort of "Wild at Heart" nor the satirical oomph of "Lolita"..”
by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times]
“..what is watchable here is made possible by the sheer will of the gifted Moretz, who's in every scene as the precocious Luli..”
by Andrew Lapin [NPR]
“..too odd to be funny, too cold-hearted to be tragic..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
“..the rest of Hick adds up to nothing more than a tax write-off..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
1.5 of 5

“..the movie also seems a bit unclear in its motives..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Movieline]
0.5 of 4

“..only too resonant..”
by R. Kurt Osenlund [Slant Magazine]
“..ms. Portes's script strains credulity, and it's not helped by Mr. Martini, who can't find the right tone..”
by Rachel Saltz [New York Times]
Review rate : D-

“..more incompetent specifically when it is concerned with violent and sexual material..”
by James Rocchi [The Playlist]

“..leaving a bad taste..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
Review rate : D-

“..is one of the most unclean and clammy films I've ever had to endure at a film festival..”
by James Rocchi [The Playlist]
Review rate : F

“..is a trashy soap opera that could care less about characters, pacing, narrative, or even basic human interaction..”
by Matt Goldberg [Collider.com]
“..an overly familiar coming-of-age drama that morphs into an unconvincing slice of blood-soaked Southern gothic nastiness..”
by Alan Hunter [Screendaily.com]

LATEST REVIEWS

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]

TANU WEDS MANU RETURNS :

“..Tanu Weds Manu Returns is as entertaining and engaging a film as any that Bollywood has delivered this year..”
by Harish Jaiswal [Cine Magazine Digital]

BARELY LETHAL :

“..the movie has a few cute moments, but for the most part it's as predictable as being bored in trigonometry..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

SURVIVOR :

“..director James McTeigue ( V for Vendetta) has turned in a crisply efficient thriller that doesn’t surprise but still manages to be mildly entertaining over the course of its predictable 96 minutes..”
by Cary Darling [DFW.com]

SAN ANDREAS :

“..it's hard to appreciate San Andreas as much more than a series of special effects vistas: impeccably detailed, completely plastic..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MACBETH :

“..fearsomely visceral and impeccably performed, it's a brisk, bracing update, even as it remains exquisitely in period..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

INSIDE OUT :

“..delightfully inventive, funny and touching and, surreptitiously, a great way of helping kids get a handle on all those inexplicable feelings..”
by David Sexton [This is London]

SICARIO :

“..Villeneuve handles conventional action sequences terrifically well..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

SEA OF TREES :

“..from the cloying, ever-present score to the complete lack of narrative momentum, it all adds up to a film that's easily Van Sant's worst..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
