2 of 4

“..storytelling cliches and inattention to narrative detail can detract from a movie's message..”
by Chris Foran [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]
0.5 of 4

“..it's slack and dull. The storytelling is inept (that weird 14-year hiatus, for example), and any time Fred Williamson gives the most assured performance in a movie, that movie is in serious trouble..”
by Mark Feeney [Boston Globe]

“..is pure preaching-to-the-choir poppycock..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
“..has been made with the conviction of true zealots, but also the competence of amateurs..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
1 of 4

“..a workmanlike, if treacly and overblown, piece of propaganda. Its effectiveness depends entirely on the degree to which you already believe its talking points..”

“..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..”
