“..there's no reason to overthink this. Just leave your brain at the lobby and enjoy 2013's most entertaining thriller yet..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
“..pretty ridiculously entertaining-or at least entertainingly ridiculous-for long stretches, dulled only by the realization that there are many parts of the country where this will play as less than total farce..”
by Scott Foundas [Village Voice]
Review rate : C

“..but Olympus Has Fallen does have lots of squalidly bloody hand-to-hand action, all of which is so pulpy and standardthat the film actually makes you grateful for the presence of Gerard Butler, gnashing his teeth in the Bruce Willis role..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]

“..action movie junkies ought to be satisfied, but even they may not like themselves so well in the morning..”

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
by Drew Taylor [Time Out New York]

“..the movie might stir that in you, too..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

HAPPY NEW YEAR :

by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

“..a powerful documentary..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

WHITE BIRD IN A BLIZZARD :

“..clunky, ugly and dull mash-up of a mystery about a missing housewife..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]
