REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..spy-movie cliches with such dogged obligation that it often plays like a YouTube compilation of scenes from older, better thrillers, generating little overall tension and only occasionally approaching basic coherence..”
by Andrew Barker [Variety]
“..sort of film where the plot and even the action become so uninteresting that you start asking plausibility questions along the lines of "Why don't they just off him already?"..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]
“..overly familiar spy film serves its star well..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]
1.5 of 5

“..James Bond without the charm, heart, and sense of humor..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
3 of 5

“..it's all an attractive polishing of warmed-over spy-thriller antics. Nothing fresh is being brought to the table, but it's a sufficient bit of fun for anyone who longs for the days of Brosnan's spy swagger..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
0.5 of 4

“..for the dialogue, every line seems to have been lifted directly from the Big Book of Screenwriter Cliches..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

“..although "The November Man" shows us some attractive people in motion, the cumulative effect leaves us neither shaken nor stirred..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

LATEST REVIEWS

UNFINISHED BUSINESS :

“..a jumble of half-baked ideas, none particularly interesting..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

CHAPPIE :

“..Blomkamp's ideas feel depleted this time, dulled by repetition and other cinematic droids that stretch from HAL 9000 in 2001: A Space Odyssey to Ultron in the upcoming sequel to The Avengers..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

FAULTS :

“..Winstead is one of the most intuitive actors of her generation, and though her impressive range is easy to spot, it's her elasticity that makes her so rewarding to watch..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

KIDNAPPING MR. HEINEKEN :

“..Sam Worthington and Jim Sturgess are solid as two of the four kidnappers, but Swedish director Daniel Alfredson pushes the caper button too many times..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OCTOBER GALE :

“..the material is not exceptional, but Ms. Clarkson always is. She's that rare actress over 50 who seems to land a lot of the juicy roles her younger competitors covet..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

TO WRITE LOVE ON HER ARMS :

“..yet there is a touching sincerity to the entire enterprise, its lumpiness coming from a desire not to make things up, and if you can put away your cynicism, which I clearly am struggling with, the acting might win you over too..”
by Steve Morrissey [MovieSteve]

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
