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

4 of 5

“..think of 'Saving Mr Banks' as a welcome-to-Christmas movie. A little too sugary, but in keeping with the season..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]
3 of 5

“..it's a slow-moving but lightly charming story that brings back memories of the delightful Julie Andrews classic movie..”
by David Edwards [Daily Mirror]
3.5 of 5

“..has all of the pieces in place to earmark it as a masterpiece - a stirring story, real life roots, wonderful performances, and a rich visual background - but it doesn't fully deliver on its promise..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]
“..an affecting if somewhat soft-soaped comedy drama, elevated by excellent performances..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]
2 of 4

“.."Saving Mr. Banks" is ultimately much less about magic than making the sale, in more ways than one..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

MALL :

DARK WAS THE NIGHT :

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

RUDDERLESS :

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

BIRDMAN :

“..Keaton's terrific, off-kilter performance is just one of several in this dizzying, high-energy movie. A must-see..”
