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]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
