REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..the movie's few saving graces are technical. The sound effects of the creaking and groaning vessel underscore the instability of a lone man on the water..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
1.5 of 5

“..the film is too slight to feel so padded. Water ripples. Ducks fly. Close-ups of ice-encrusted leaves do not a deep movie make..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
2 of 5

“..the film doesn't play games; it's basically just Lucas going through a short story-like period of reflection and redemption almost entirely without dialogue. It's not enough, but it is what this underappreciated actor does best..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
“..Josh Lucas plays an alcoholic widower who undergoes a spiritual rebirth by fixing up a sailboat, and I really wish he hadn't..”
by Kyle Smith [NY Post]
“..it's revealed in a snippet of melodramatic flashback that has no emotional impact. Nor does the film as a whole..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

WETLANDS :

“..Juri's performance makes it impossible to divert your eyes from the screen, no matter how much you might want to, and a brave film that eventually succumbs to convention is still braver than most..”
by David Ehrlich [Film.com]

GOD HELP THE GIRL :

“..the cutesiness will entice/repel viewers in equal measure, but it has a lot of heart, and displays it on its sleeve..”
by Emma Johnston [Total Film]

FRONTERA :

“..Frontera is, on a whole, more interested in situations than characters-Pena, a stoic onscreen presence..”
by Andrew Lapin [The Dissolve]

THE LONGEST WEEK :

“.."The Longest Week" quickly becomes mimicry, losing any emotional pull as it strives to preserve the hospital corners of other, better helmers..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

HEAVENLY SWORD :

“..a pretty predictable and unexciting video..”
by Jeffrey Kauffman [Blu-ray.com]

CANTINFLAS :

“..Moreno was famous for verbal innovations and linguistic skill in his portrayal of the underdog, but the film doesn't capture the hilarity it seeks..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

THE LAST OF ROBIN HOOD :

“..but in the end it's a fond, fairly toothless B-movie take on a romance that wasn't so much May-December as straight-up statutory..”
by Leah Greenblatt [Entertainment Weekly]

GHOSTBUSTERS :

“..deliriously inventive, evergreen 1984 family comedy..”
by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London]

AS ABOVE, SO BELOW :

“..boasts sporadically electrifying visuals but a frustratingly messy mythology..”
by Matt Risley [Total Film]

THE CALLING :

“..the puzzle at the centre of the tale just seems so outlandish and preposterous, it's difficult to take the film seriously..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
