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]
3 of 5

“..enough mystery and tension to make it worthwhile..”
by David Mercier [FilmJudge]

“..a thriller that begins well but middles and ends less well..”
by Michael Phillips [Chicago Tribune]

LATEST REVIEWS

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

6 WAYS TO DIE :

“.."6 WAYS to Die" is a revenge story told backwards. It's like "Memento," except that movie was fantastic. "6 Ways" is the opposite. The cheesy dialogue is written in slogans and the actors speak as slowly as possible..”
by Eddie Goldberger [NY Daily News]
