“..the movie's unrelenting visual drabness only adds to the unfortunate sense that while the end will come soon for them, it isn't coming anywhere near fast enough..”
by Manohla Dargis [New York Times]
“..the best - and worst - that could be said of the film is that it doesn't need that looming apocalypse..”
by Scott Tobias [NPR]
“..part of the fun is watching how such extreme circumstances change the various individuals' personalities..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

“..if you're going to name your movie "It's a Disaster," you'd better be awfully sure it's immune from audience agreement..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..as the apocalypse wears on, the comic couples continue being comic couples, and-save a pair of flat scenes in the middle-the movie maintains its effervescence..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

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]
