“..touching, generous, sweet, this little slip of a movie puts you under some kind of spell..”
by Mary F. Pols [TIME Magazine]
“..this intentionally meta movie feels less subversive than Safety Not Guaranteed..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
4 of 5

“..they and their actors create humor and heart by treating the outlandish scenario with complete respect..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News]
“..the resulting film is a slight, wistful comedy that, at least up to the ambitious but unsatisfying final scenes, combines sci-fi and rom-com to pleasing effect..”
by Dana Stevens [Slate]
3 of 4

“..takes the risk of having feelings, and it's richer for it..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
2 of 5

“..something fundamentally bogus lies at the "warm" heart of "Safety Not Guaranteed,"..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
4.5 of 5

“..movies with a voice as strong, strange, smart and yes, sincere as "Safety Not Guaranteed" deserve to be heard long after the festival's end..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
Review rate : B

“..it's too tidy by half, but it is also very sweetly told..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3 of 4

“..director Colin Trevorrow and writer Derek Connolly keep the film humming with funny and touching surprises. And Plaza is a flat-out enchantress..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..casually realistic, with semi-improvised dialogue and low-tech production values, it is truthful without seeming portentous..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]
“..because "Safety Not Guaranteed" is wholly committed to all of its odd characters, we are swayed by them as well..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

LEGEND :

“..while he arguably fails to rein in his leading man (or half of him), screenwriter-turned-director Helgeland has a light touch, leavening the ultra-violence - and there are gory scenes - with a flair for absurdity..”
by Helen O'Hara [Daily Telegraph]

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
