1.5 of 4

“..this adaptation misses even the most obvious of opportunities. What's left is as pieced together as one of its heroes many "gadgets"..”
by Joe Lozito [Big Picture Big Sound]
4 of 5

“..The spirit of Frank Drebin lives on..”
by Amber Wilkinson [Eye for Film]
Review rate : B+

“..The R-rating is welcome here, shaping a filthy funhouse environment to go along with the spurts of comedic violence, making "MacGruber" more of a rollicking good time than it had any right to be..”
by Brian Orndorf [BrianOrndorf.com]

“..that ain't funny..”
by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail]
“..prepare to laugh your ass off..”
by John P. Meyer [Pegasus News]
2.5 of 4

“..MacGruber" is the best movie based on a "Saturday Night Live" sketch since "Wayne's World"..”
by L. Kent Wolgamott [Lincoln Journal Star]
3 of 4

“..MacGruber breaks the jinx by putting the skit in the context of a 1980s action movie and creating its own brand of explosive lunacy..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..Hmm. Stink: The Movie. Oh wait; that's already been made..”
by Rob Salem [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..Funny as it sometimes is, MacGruber is still a comedy for people juvenile enough to laugh at every f-bomb as though it's the first time they've ever heard a word that naughty..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
“..easy to watch and consistently funny, even if it is as substantial as a merengue..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]
2.5 of 5

“..Celebrating the fine art, and the very small sub-genre, of the pyrotechnically fuelled action comedy, MacGruber blows stuff up - but it doesn't blow - marking one of the bigger surprises of the summer movie season..”
by Katherine Monk [Canwest News Service]
“..All thing considered, "MacGruber" is a lot better than it should be. That still doesn't mean it's all that great..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
“.."Saturday Night Live"-derived '80s spoof does its best with very thin material..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
