REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

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

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]

FORT MCCOY :

“..an old-fashioned, appealingly sentimental drama about homefront life during WWII..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]

SWELTER :

“..Swelter won't be for everyone as JCVD is severely wasted in a very minor role and there isn't that much in the way of action. However, if you're looking for a modern Western with surprising humour then you might just have a blast..”
by Eoin Friel [The Action Elite]
