“..the stunningly tedious Night Train to Lisbon, a load of old windbaggery in which people keep remarking what a fascinating story is being told, yet they fail to make any kind of a case for it..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
1.5 of 4

“..it's all terribly talky and low-energy..”
by Farran Smith Nehme [New York Post]

“..it's not bad, but it's puzzling why director Peter Askin and King himself bothered to adapt a nondescript novella from the Master of Horror's autumn years..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

BANG BANG! :

“..wish they had used more logic than bullets to create the real 'bang bang'..”

MAS NEGRO QUE LA NOCHE :

“..this might just be the silliest Mexican movie of the year, 3D or not..”
by Eric Ortiz Garcia [TwitchFilm]

THE EQUALIZER :

“..a stone-dumb movie, unwilling to allow Washington even a hint of uniqueness (apart from the usual silverware straightening and public book reading, shorthand cliches for "smart")..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

THE BOXTROLLS :

“..delectable treat that balances themes of identity and class warfare with Monty Python-style political skewering, quirky humor and dairy jokes..”
by Brian Truitt [USA Today]

SAINT LAURENT :

“..pure haute couture - considerably more spectacular, but also less practical, with its baroque ornamentation and slip-sliding chronology..”
by Guy Lodge [Variety]

MEN, WOMEN & CHILDREN :

“..painfully well-meaning but largely unpersuasive bid for cross-generational understanding feels at once of-the-moment and too obvious by half..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
