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

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
