“..when the movie falls flat - and it does, especially in an unfunny and nauseating love scene involving a piranha hiding inside a hoo-ha - it's a drag..”
by Staci Layne Wilson [Horror.com]
“..this sequel has "outrageous" stamped across its chest, which not only ruins the joke but also could endanger the implants..”
by Jay Stone [Ottawa Citizen]
1.5 of 4

“..there's little wit or sense on view, just cheesy gross-outs and profanities strung together; plot, characters and all that other stuff are clearly beside the point, and for some potential viewers..”

“..The tempting trailer for this over-inflated sequel to 2010's B-movie horror suggested that it would deliver pneumatic bliss and bloody piscine horror in equal measure. Synthetic, lifeless and shapeless, it offers nothing of the kind. The flesh-eating pre..”

“..some of the gags just don't "hit" or "pop", leaving the audience sort of quietly giggling to themselves..”

“..sadly, a protracted first act doesn't catch fire as sundry good-looking youngsters get chomped in knockabout nastiness which isn't that effective..”

“..oddly, Gulager's depiction of these cartoonish events seems restrained-if anything the film, it's too understated..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]

“..ludicrous pack-traveling creatures who seem to lack long-term goals..”
by Mack Rawden [Cinema Blend]
“..funny, inane and with quotable dialogue to rivalAnchorman, Piranha 3DD is too stupid to miss..”
by Stephen [Mildconcern.com]
“..despite the title's big-bosom promise, the treatment of living female flesh is largely perfunctory, as though fulfilling a contractual obligation embedded in the title..”
by Leslie Felperin [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“.."there's something in the water" all right, and apparently it's making movies (and audiences) progressively more stupid..”

“..Rogue Nation may not be the best, the tightest, or even the most logically coherent M:I flick, but there should be more movies like it: relentlessly thrilling, smart entertainments for folks..”

“..everyone deserves a vacation. And everyone deserves a better comedy than "Vacation"..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..the adaptation of Paper Towns is a failure. But even as it fails to either develop or subvert its characterization of Margo, it succeeds in complicating all of its ancillary characters..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]


“..a predictable flurry of melodramatic jabs..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]


“..The Vatican Tapes is comparatively inert, even though it features a lot of the askew camera angles and jump-cuts that fans of the Crank series expect..”
by Noel Murray [A.V. Club]


“..every joke is forced, every special effect is un-special..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]


“..for a movie about surprises, though, there really aren't many... this academic study tends to feel like it's by the book..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]


“..if it weren't for Sy's charm and cinematographer Stephane Fontaine's superb eye (the scenes set at the immigration detainee camp are especially evocative from a visual standpoint), Samba would be a total wash..”
by Keith Uhlich [A.V. Club]


“..alas, this doesn't excuse the film's childish simplicity, be it a line of cheesy dialogue, an overused camera trick, or the primitive romance..”
by Nikola Grozdanovic [The Playlist]


“..Martin's script holds some hard-boiled appeal, but his direction (some nice technical flourishes aside) doesn't back it up..”
