2 of 5

“..this suffers from a fatally unfunny script, unappealing characters and an unwise decision to ditch its 'England invaded' premise for a terrible Braveheart parody..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]
2 of 5

“..the voice cast is good though and for sheer oddity value this creation of filmmaking brothers Edward and Rory McHenry must rank as some kind of collector's item..”
by Henry Fitzherbert [Daily Express]
2 of 5

“..it's as if the McHenry brothers have watched too many old episodes of 'Allo 'Allo. A valiant effort, then, that unfortunately falls flat..”
by Stephen Jewell [SFX Magazine]
3 of 5

“..it's all deeply silly, but agreeably so with some smart one-liners, tongue-incheek humour..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
