REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..this franchise is starting to feel slightly less derivative. Eye-catching effects help hide the cribbing..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]
2 of 4

“..the whole cast is enjoyable, in fact, with good chemistry. They're capable of entertaining us. Unfortunately, Freudenthal and writers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski never really let them..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2 of 4

“..is a lot like a certain bespectacled young wizard - sans the lightning-shaped scar. It's too bad his adventures don't have the same enchanting quality..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
1.5 of 4

“..Freudenthal succeeds in focusing on the characters and not overdoing the CGI stuff. The problem is that there's not much to the characters..”
by Andrew Wagaman [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..an epic showcase for mediocre CGI and slapdash screenwriting..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
1 of 5

“.."Sea of Monsters," unfortunately, is a clueless and bland follow-up featuring an uninspired quest and a startling amount of cheap-looking CGI..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE ONE I LOVE :

“..so is this terrific movie..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

KINK :

“..the movie often feels like a full-length ad for a great workplace, which just happens to stash whips and chains in the stationery closet..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

LEPRECHAUN: ORIGINS :

“..overall, Leprechaun: Origins is awfully disappointing, and offers little insight as to how this prequel fits into the Leprechaun world..”
by Kalyn Corrigan [Shock Till You Drop]

ARE YOU HERE :

“..there's no sign of the crisp, knowing writing, compelling narratives or sublime character development that are Weiner's hallmarks in this tepid and tentative story..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

CAM2CAM :

“..falls spectacularly short for the genres it hopes to pander in: slasher pic, soft-core, travelogue..”
by Daniel M. Gold [NY Times]

WHEN THE GAME STANDS TALL :

“..When the Game Stands Tall fumbles in several ways, failing to make enough of a connection to convey its inspirational message..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

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]

MAY IN THE SUMMER :

“..the broader truths in Dabis's screenplay, as does its smart treatment of the region's proximity to armed conflict..”
by Abby Garnett [Village Voice]

WATERCOLOR POSTCARDS :

“..we've got a quality film more than competently made, and if you like romantic dramas with a taste of redemption, and closure, then Watercolor Postcards is a strong example of the genre..”
by Mark Bell [Film Threat]

JERSEY SHORE MASSACRE :

“..the send-up is sometimes funny but mostly boring (like the show itself)..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]
