3 of 4

“..the premise sounds like an after-school special crossed with a "Bad News Bears" reboot, but "Home Run" strives for more than studio formulas, allowing the morality play to stand on its own merit..”
by Sean O'Connell [Washington Post]
“..the message overwhelms the medium..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
Review rate : C+

“..director Boyd weaves the preaching - which includes testimonials from actual recovering addicts - into the story, and thankfully avoids overly emotional hallelujah moments. For what it is, "Home Run" is a solid hit..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]

CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

“..modestly entertaining..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]

by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
