1.5 of 4

“..the film's title promises payback, without offering ample compensation..”
by Adam Litovitz [Globe and Mail]
1 of 5

“..lacks inventiveness in any single fibre of its being - and worse, it's dull, resulting in highly produced b-grade schlock that constantly mashed the slo-mo button with its worn-down book of 3D cliches..”
by Liam Maguren [Flicks.co.nz]
1.5 of 4

“..it's all the same blah-blah carnage as the first four flicks, with 3D effects hurling blood, blades and body parts into the audience amid a non-stop barrage of gunfire and explosions..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]
“..endless video-game-style, violent mayhem is on display in this latest edition of the mind-numbing apocalypse series..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

ZIPPER :

by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
