REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..you won't come away from it with any new answers, but it's a useful reminder of why the drama of that day has transfixed Americans for half a century..”
by David Wiegand [San Francisco Chronicle]
“..too often feeling like a book report version of history..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]
2 of 5

“..there's nothing terribly wrong with "Killing Kennedy." We just don't need the splashes of Hollywood in a story we already know way too well..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]
Review rate : C-

“..there's no real attempt at authenticity or immediacy, but the clarity of simple A to B to C storytelling offers some satisfaction..”
by Zack Handlen [A.V. Club]
Review rate : C+

“..the even larger issue is familiarity. We already know too much and paradoxically too little about the JFK assassination. A TV movie needed to tell us something we don't know. No dice here..”
by Verne Gay [Newsday]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

45 YEARS :

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
