REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Don't waste your weekend watch this movie.    Readers  1 of 5 [Rate It]

“..this painfully feeble version of the strongman story fails on every level, from Lutz's wooden acting to the styrofoam special effects..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
1.5 of 5

“..is truly a lazy film..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]
1 of 4

“..is bumbling tripe, the rooting interest it works up in the viewer accurately equating to the makers' interest in staying true to the classic mythology upon which the story based. There have been boxes of hair smarter than this movie..”
by Dustin Putman [DustinPutman.com]

“..Harlin, who has fallen so far off the grid he's on the WWE's shortlist of go-to directors, gives the film an ugly, blanched look like a poor man's 300..”
by Travis Hopson [Examiner.com]
1.5 of 4

“..a parade of carnage without blood, romance without heat, stilted dialogue and male cleavage, at its best it is still vexing as all get out even to those with a high tolerance for the Cinema of the Gods..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

2 STATES :

“..2 States' romantic angle is a little difficult to connect given the way it is moved along in such a hurry in order to incorporate everything, but the family side of the bargain is truly touching..”
by Paloma Sharma [rediff.com]

INTRAMURAL :

“..the film has got a stacked cast of comedic talent, it unknowingly and amusingly nods to and borrows from more traditional sports films, isn't afraid to get damn weird in service to a good joke..”
by Kate Erbland [Film School Rejects]

A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT :

“..happily, fine acting by Anika Noni Rose, Kimberly Elise, Tichina Arnold and Mekhi Phifer, along with Goldberg and Rhames, makes it a cautionary tale worth watching..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

BEARS :

“..another typically engaging, vividly shot entry in the successful Disney wildlife series..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

IN MY DREAMS :

“..one of the more satisfying movies the storied franchise has delivered in some time..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

A HAUNTED HOUSE 2 :

“..the script is lazy, recycling countless genre cliches rather than inventing novel twists..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

MAKE YOUR MOVE :

“.."Make Your Move" is an underwritten mess..”
by Inkoo Kang [LA Times]

KID CANNABIS :

“..this wild story sells itself, no narration needed..”
by Neil Genzlinger [New York Times]

A PROMISE :

“..awkward, passionless drama conveys neither the sensuality nor the drawn-out sense of longing required..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

FADING GIGOLO :

“..this second film is the keeper: the kind of keenly observed cultural clash that still finds room for dancing, a sultry fish-deboning (you just have to see it) and awakening..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
