REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  2 of 5 [Rate It]

3 of 4

“..thoughtful, grounded, more interested in questions of free will and emotions versus technology than it is in goofy satire..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
4 of 5

“..taking the original and successfully transplanting it into an ambitious new world, Jose Padilha's english-language debut is an exciting, pacey and thoughtful sci-fi actioner..”
by Richard Jordan [Total Film]
“..more meticulous script and, naturally, flashier effects, but it lacks the original's wit and subversive slipperiness..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“..like its shell of an enforcer, this Robo-redo is slick but tedious, flat-footed and humorless..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 4

“..it doesn't seem quite as truly, organically alive as it once did. But it sure looks sleek, and moves pretty fast. And if you don't think too much, it almost feels like the real thing..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]
3.5 of 4

“..is a movie with a lot on its mind..”
by Soren Andersen [NY Times]

CRONIES :

“..Cronies is funny and moving in equal doses, a humane film about a handful of guys just trying to get by on the hands they've been dealt by life..”
by Dominick Mayer [Consequence of Sound]

WITH THIS RING :

“..the dialogue and complex weave of relationships feel believable and natural. So even if the outcomes don't feel like revelations, they feel right, and the trip to get there feels the same..”
by David Hinckley [NY Daily News]

PROJECT ALMANAC :

“..modestly entertaining..”
by Jordan Hoffman [The Guardian]

JUSTICE LEAGUE: THRONE OF ATLANTIS :

“..the Justice League members have some great moments to enjoy, although they all take a backseat to the main Aquaman plot..”
by Joshua Yehl [IGN Movies]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]
