“..this is one smart film from someone with a singular voice who knows their craft..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]
2 of 5

“..there's a thin line between intelligent ambiguity and unintelligible pretentiousness..”
by Christopher Tookey [Daily Mail]
Review rate : B+

“..the plot weaves unpredictably, getting more shocking and tense in its final third..”
by Noel Murray [AV Club]
“..the movie enlivens its schematic, episodic story with some teary domestic drama and a wacky Wicker Man ending..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
4 of 5

“..the moodscape of Kill List is inspired, the climax less so, and the more like a conventional scary movie it becomes, and the more clearly it reminds you of other scary movies, the less effective it is..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
“..the final twist is both baffling and repulsive, but as an evocation of the triumph of evil, it's peerless..”
by David Edelstein [New York Magazine]
Review rate : D

“..suffers from a complete absence of dread and suspense that diminishes the effectiveness of the movie's climactic stretch..”
by David Nusair [Reel Film Reviews]
4.5 of 5

“..not many filmmakers credit their audiences with this much intelligence..”
by Rich Cline [Shadows on the Wall]
Review rate : A

“..most of the film's on-screen violence is more emotional than physical..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]
Review rate : D+

“..like pieces of divergent puzzles forced together, this movie ends up coming across as disjointed and disorganized..”
by Bill Gibron [Filmcritic.com]
4 of 5

“..is implausible, portentous and, worst of all, unscary..”
by Charlotte O'Sullivan [This is London]
5 of 5

“..highly recommended and one of the best films of the year..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
Review rate : B

“..contains some really appallingly explicit scenes of killing and torture, but it alternates these with scenes in which violence is merely implied..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
“..climaxing in an ending that elicited gasps of horror from the packed midnight madness audience I saw this with..”
by Chris Bumbray [JoBlo's Movie Emporium]
“..brutal and bloody and utterly unnerving..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
1.5 of 4

“..all of those features are bugs, and at the risk of mixing metaphors..”
by Jaime N. Christley [Slant Magazine]
4 of 5

“..a dark, funny, disturbing picture-not for the squeamish, though it's as given to subtle creepiness as outright horrors..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Magazine]

45 YEARS :

“..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..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

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]
