5 of 5

“..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]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ELF: BUDDY'S MUSICAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."Elf" offers some slight, warmed over charms, but viewers would be better off catching one of the umpteen TV showings of the original "Elf" movie..”
by Rob Owen [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette]

THE INTERVIEW :

“..wild and wildly uneven..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

TWO DAYS, ONE NIGHT :

“..it's a rare film of unforced simplicity that will stick with you for a long time. And it's honest right to its perfectly judged ending..”
by Kim Newman [Empire Online]

THE GAMBLER :

“..a slick remake of the gritty original is marked by sharp performances..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

MR. TURNER :

“..an ecstatically beautiful and exquisitely detailed portrait of the artist as a cantankerous middle-aged man..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SONG OF THE SEA :

“..a gorgeously rendered animated feature from Ireland..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

ANNIE :

“..more of a facelift than an update, the pic dusts off some old songs, adds a few desultory stabs at new ones, and stuffs the frame with shiny upscale gadgets that scream "modern"..”
by Ronnie Scheib [Variety]

THE SANTA CON :

“..this movie was mostly about crime and lies and betrayal and sticking your nose into other people's business..”
by Jill O'Rourke [Crushable]
