“..time has not been kind to the thin charms of this Shrek wannabe..”
by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly]
1 of 4

“..this wasn't just a comically fractured fairy tale, but one with a compellingly fractured narrative as well..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]
2 of 4

“..there's nothing especially noteworthy about Hoodwinked Too! in its 3-D iteration..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..seems designed to be forgettable - the type of throwaway kid-friendly movie that comes out a month or two before expectations start to rise in the summer..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..s all-sugar rush, its potential to charm adults and their young charges routinely drowned out by a bigger/faster/jokier ethos..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..one of the most obnoxious and least necessary animated films of the century thus far..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
“..more peevish than plucky..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
1 of 4

“..is that rarity - a film in which practically nothing works..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]
1 of 4

“..is memorable for being one of the most obnoxious animated movies of recent years..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2 of 4

“..has prettier colors, a beefed-up voice cast, and if the plot's no more original than in the first film, at least there are more gags..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..feels as computer-generated as its creepy, talking-ceramic-toy style of animation..”
by Michelle Orange [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..despite cosmetic surgery, this 3-D sequel reprises the original's formulaic failings: infantile humor, unrelenting wisecracks and popcult references, and flat characters who don't engage one's eyes or interest..”
by Kat Murphy [MSN Movies]
2.5 of 4

“..are irreverent, fast, funky and funny..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..a film that's as good as its predecessors, and suggests that Refueled isn't the last that weâ��ll see of this particular incarnation of the Transporter..”
by Chris Tilly [IGN Movies]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

“..A Walk in the Woods is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and a few strong laughs. Nothing special cinematically, it still provides a welcome showcase for wonderful star..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

“..it feels like amateur hour, but for fans of low-rent thrills it's kind of fun..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]
