Review rate : C

“..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 INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
