2.5 of 4

“..Statham is up to the task. Which is a surprise, because he's never, ever done anything like this before..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..mostly, Franco just seems to be biding his time here, bored with the part and the movie that contains it..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

“..mix a random cast like this and you should get some kind of weird alchemical reaction. Instead, the result is an inert gas..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
“..Jason Statham squares off against poor white trash in an old Sylvester Stallone script that should have stayed on the shelf..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
3 of 5

“..is an action movie born in the wrong generation, but it's still a fun and wild watch thanks to Jason Statham's warpath through a sleepy Southern town..”
by Matt Donato [We Got This Covered]
1.5 of 4

“..Homefront falls apart pretty quickly, its rote repetition of '80s action tropes coming across less like inspired riffing and more like unimaginative by-the-numbers moviemaking..”
by Abhimanyu Das [Slant Magazine]
2.5 of 4

“.."Homefront" isn't awful. It moves along quickly enough, it's interesting to catch some familiar faces among the cast..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]
