REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..the film gets a lift from offbeat characters, especially Daniel and Merritt, and humorous dialogue..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
3 of 4

“..more seriously and plays with the idea that, in order to maintain their credibility and keep their names relevant, big-time illusionists must constantly up the ante and attempt tricks that are increasingly spectacular..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 4

“..it's a slick and kind of smirky entertainment..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
Review rate : B

“..it never stops moving (the camerawork, dialogue, and plot twists keep rushing at you), and it's exceedingly clever..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 4

“..it all falls flat. For all the hocus-pocus and elaborate set pieces and the talent of the people involved..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2 of 5

“..even if the character development is nearly invisible, there's really no excuse for the movie's cut-rate look or shoddy plotting..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
1.5 of 4

“..a fair response to a movie that gets damagingly worse as it goes along..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 5

“..a brilliantly crafted puzzle by extension? Hardly. The whole of it is made of flash paper, intended to burn brightly for an instant before vanishing from your memory without a trace..”
by William Goss [Film.com]
2.5 of 4

“.."Now You See Me" zips by, smoothly and pleasantly thanks to that star-studded cast and the slick cinematography, but it's hard to get too attached to it. Now you see it, now you don't, now you stop thinking about it. Like magic..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
2 of 5

“.."Now You See Me" is an enjoyable goof that in its giddy way evokes a world propelled by technological wizardry enabling those who are clever enough to steal from everybody else..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]

SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR :

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE BOXCAR CHILDREN :

“..this movie is full of teachable moments and a great addition to our movie library..”
by Kathryn Cummins [Cummins Life]

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
