2 of 4

“..neither designed nor inclined to shock or awe..”
by Duane Dudek [The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel]
2.5 of 4

“..Nabbing ideas from both The Fugitive and In the Line of Fire, The Sentinel never reaches those films' level of intrigue and tension..”
by Kim Morgan [Reel]
3.5 of 5

“..manages to hold itself together enough down the stretch to withstand some flimsy plot strands..”
by John Urbancich [Sun Newspapers of Cleveland]
6.5 of 10

“..has a lot twists and shows a side of the Secret Service that really hasn't been seen before in a film..”
by Heather Newgen [Comingsoon]
“..fails in comparison to the last really good Secret Service movie, Wolfgang Petersen's 1993 "In the Line of Fire"..”
by Kirk Honeycutt [The Hollywood Reporter]

by David Mercier [FilmJudge]

LATEST REVIEWS

NIGHTCRAWLER :

“.."Taxi Driver" meets "Network" in this dark satire-thriller. Gyllenhaal is terrific, while Russo may have just launched a comeback..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

23 BLAST :

“..its better-known cast members-like Stephen Lang, who plays Travis' coach-don't thoroughly embarrass themselves, mostly because the pokey script and Baker's ambition-free direction don't give them much opportunity to..”
by Ignatiy Vishnevetsky [A.V. Club]

MR. DYNAMITE: THE RISE OF JAMES BROWN :

“..Mr. Dynamite may finally be Gibney's most psychologically and socially perceptive film to date..”
by Chris Cabin [Slant Magazine]

LOW DOWN :

“..the movie takes on a haunting dimension, even while actively dodging biopic cliches and falling into long lulls where not much happens. Fanning manages to bring soulfulness to a character who mostly reacts to others..”
by Drew Taylor [Time Out New York]

“..the movie might stir that in you, too..”
by Alan Scherstuhl [Village Voice]

HAPPY NEW YEAR :

by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

THE GREAT INVISIBLE :

“..a powerful documentary..”
by John DeFore [Hollywood Reporter]

“..a characteristically vigorous, playful..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

“..a Victoria-era psychological thriller with some good twisty..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]
