“..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]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
