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

2 of 4

“..the sardonic laughs are mostly gone in this wheezing cash cow and the cries don't resonate..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..the kills themselves are both bountiful and bloody, the movie references are brilliant and bloody, the funny is very frequent and very frequently bloody, but to say any more would ruin the boo..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

“..the film seems to just give in and join its slasher brethren, devolving into a string of gruesome, but unoriginal, slayings..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
2.5 of 5

“..The "Scream" movies have always been clever. The problem is that they never move beyond cleverness..”
by Robert W. Butler [Kansas City Star]

“..Scream 4 goes about its bloody business with impersonal, impatient proficiency..”
by Nathan Rabin [AV Club]

“..it's precisely the meta-textual aspect of the film that gives it promise, even as it fumbles the delivery..”
by Todd Gilchrist [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..it's almost really cool, without quite being really cool..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

by Matthew Turner [View London]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE INTRUDERS :

“..this is one of those movies that's not very good but not so offensively bad that I regret ever seeing it. No doubt, it's also something I probably won't remember in a week..”
by Brian Oliver [The Movieman]

FOCUS :

“..like a counterfeit handbag: It looks great but falls apart when you reach into it..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

A LA MALA :

“..thoroughly predictable, and despite an original setup, the movie never rouses the emotions..”
by Marjorie Baumgarten [Austin Chronicle]

THE HUNTING GROUND :

“..the stories are horrifying, but essential to hear..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

OUT OF THE DARK :

“..a horror movie with an anti-globalist bent that's more interesting than its halfhearted scares..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

THE SALVATION :

“..delivering a highly stylized widescreen revenge picture loaded with weapons and driven entirely by "superficial action"..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]

EVERLY :

“..the film isn't particularly convincing either as a rousing anthology of bloodsport set pieces or a deeply felt portrait of revenge and reunion..”
by Vadim Rizov [A.V. Club]

'71 :

“..the hard-charging debut feature from TV director Yann Demange, makes us live every vivid, violent moment with him, the threat of death lurking at every turn..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

BLUEBIRD :

“..undoubtedly a remarkable achievement, especially for a first-time filmmaker..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE LAZARUS EFFECT :

“..still, "The Lazarus Effect," clocking in at a brief 86 minutes, doesn't go far enough, isn't scary enough and has mad scientists who just aren't mad enough..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
