2 of 5

“..the movie does not pull back on the action front - in fact, the run and gun scenes are endless..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
2.5 of 4

“..Red 2 is one of those sequels that's easier to follow if you've seen the original but more entertaining if you haven't..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]
“..Red 2 gives the impression of being oodles more fun, while really just being more self-conscious..”
by Stephanie Zacharek [Village Voice]
1 of 4

“..it isn't good, it doesn't pretend to be good, it isn't trying to be good..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..cars careen, lazily written infiltration plans are executed, and the violence is plentiful and toothless..”
by Nicolas Rapold [New York Times]
“..but the film's premise is certainly well past its "use by" date, resulting in another passably palatable sequel..”

LATEST REVIEWS

RESULTS :

“..Smulders, Pearce, and Corrigan are loose and eminently likable, and the direction is so in tune with the actors that one is almost inclined to think of Results as a movie carried entirely by performance, overlooking how much its shape depends on style..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

GEMMA BOVERY :

“..the emotions are florid and the entanglements heated. But the film become preoccupied with, as Flaubert would say, the pettiness and mediocrity of daily life..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

NIGHTINGALE :

“.."Nightingale" feels more like a fascinating monologue than it does a wholly realized film..”
by Brian Lowry [Variety]

HEAVEN KNOWS WHAT :

“..sensational and intense..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

SEARCH PARTY :

“..a 'Hangover' wannabe that leaves you with a headache nonetheless..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

THE GOOB :

“..a film that never quite achieves its potential..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

HOT GIRLS WANTED :

“..an intimate and ultimately harrowing peek inside the world of amateur porn..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

CLUB LIFE :

“..Abeckaser is more believable, which is unsurprising, since the movie is loosely based on his own experiences..”
by Pete Vonder Haar [Village Voice]

A PIGEON SAT ON A BRANCH REFLECTING ON EXISTENCE :

“..strangely memorable and resonant, often delightful though rarely laugh-out-loud funny..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

ALOHA :

“..the chemistry is mostly forced, the story without an emotional core. And though Crowe's facility for language can be striking, here it never moves beyond self-consciousness..”
by Sheri Linden [Hollywood Reporter]
