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]

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]

REVENGE OF THE GREEN DRAGONS :

“..an ambitious English language attempt to give Chinese American gangs their day is disappointingly uninvolving..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

FISHING WITHOUT NETS :

“..offers instead is a slick sense of style and a surfeit of credible detail..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

THE TWO FACES OF JANUARY :

“..The Two Faces Of January may not be trying anything bold, original, or especially complicated, but what it does, it does well..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

FIELD OF LOST SHOES :

“..the film stands as a pinnacle of revisionist bullshit..”
by Nick Schager [Village Voice]

GOOD PEOPLE :

“..predictable, pat conclusion and betrays its generally solid performances and respectable artistic pedigree..”
by Cary Darling [Fort Worth Star-Telegram]
