“..uninspired Damascus-set thriller is hardly worth escaping to..”
by Jordan Mintzer [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 4

“..the film spins its wheels for almost an hour until collapsing under the weight of exposition that renders the mystery nearly besides the point..”
by Chuck Bowen [Slant Magazine]
2 of 4

“..it does a poor job mimicking Damascus, a shortcoming that the camera's tight shots can't disguise. Still, despite its flaws..”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]
“..Inescapable isn't a terrible movie, but absent its ripped-from-the-headlines setting it's unremarkable..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
