Movie Reviews

  • tto be fair, The Samaritan doesn't merit much of his effort
    Review rate : C- by Sam Adams [AV Club ]
  • there are some complications, some melodrama, and then the game gets underway
    2 of 4 by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger ]
  • the plotline gets a bit sloppy in its articulation of the big scam at hand
    Review rate : B- by Cole Smithey [ ]
  • the haphazard feeling of the narrative deflates any real tension
    1.5 of 5 by Mark Olsen [Los Angeles Times ]
  • the final resolution is perhaps a little hasty. But there's something here
    3 of 4 by Roger Ebert [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • that status is boosted by overheated direction and an underwritten script that ignores the sole interesting element - the actual con - until the end
    1 of 5 by Elizabeth Weitzman [New York Daily News ]
  • other aspects feel rushed and unfocused: salvation pops up and fixes are instan
    1.5 of 4 by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star ]
  • its deliberate narrative pacing derails crucially in rushed climactic passages
    3 of 5 by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies ]
  • for a while, as comfortably pleasant as sipping on what once used to be your go-to drink
    3 of 5 by Alison Willmore [Movieline ]
  • every single element here feels borrowed
    by Chris Barsanti [Film Journal International ]
  • despite its exploitation ambitions, this Samaritan is good only for a last-ditch swerve into schmaltz
    1 of 5 by Eric Hynes [Time Out New York ]
  • concluding with a showdown and resolution marked by one implausible and unsatisfying been-here-done-that twist after another
    by Nick Schager [Village Voice ]
