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]

“..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]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

“..A Walk in the Woods is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and a few strong laughs. Nothing special cinematically, it still provides a welcome showcase for wonderful star..”

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

“..it feels like amateur hour, but for fans of low-rent thrills it's kind of fun..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
