“..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]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
