Movie Reviews

  • you probably won't want to see that one, either
    2 of 5 by Dave White [ ]
  • visually the movie does not look like a first work, narratively and dramatically, it suffers from some serious weaknesses
    by Emanuel Levy [EmanuelLevy.Com ]
  • unfortunately, "Blood and Honey" has script problems: Its core story is less compelling than its overall atmosphere
    by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the final developments shift from realism to melodrama
    by Mark Jenkins [NPR ]
  • the film's final line comes across as both quietly dramatic and highly unlikely
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • the creation of over- and under-drawn characters chip away at the good intentions and the skills of much of the cast
    by Howard Feinstein [Screen International ]
  • the character's shifts between "good" and "bad" seem overly schematic and the central storyline feels at once underthought and overdetermined
    1.5 of 4 by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine ]
  • so the film is a head-spinning mix of dead babies and romantic dinners, pillow talk and mass executions. Blood and honey don't taste right together
    2 of 4 by Kyle Smith [New York Post ]
  • plodding words into the characters’ mouths that would work better in the kind of on-screen textual explanations
    by Manohla Dargis [New York Times ]
  • one that doesn't entirely work as an act of storytelling, but whose end goal is a grisly success
    4 of 5 by Matt Patches [ ]
  • occasionally, the movie italicizes its points with heavy musical drones, but its tone is remarkably even and concentrated
    Review rate : B by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York ]
  • it deserves to be taken seriously as a debut by someone who may yet be as natural and assured behind the camera as she seems to be in front of it
    2.5 of 5 by James Rocchi [MSN Movies ]
  • has some moments of first-movie clumsiness, but it’s soberly and elegantly shot
    by Andrew O'Hehir [ ]
  • give magnetic, raw performances
    4 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News ]
  • closing titles confirm that the motivating intent in making In the Land of Blood and Honey was activist rather than artistic
    by Karina Longworth [Village Voice ]
  • at a certain point, the film almost seems to sense its scenario tilting into tarted-up banality and abruptly shifts gears
    by Justin Chang [Variety ]
