REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Go! Watch this movie. You'll regret if not seeing it.    Readers  4 of 5 [Rate It]

4.5 of 5

“..ultimately, think of the movie as a puzzle box in which all the pieces fit together wonderfully well. Once you step back and take a look at how it's all put together, you have to marvel at how cleverly constructed the whole thing is..”
by Randy Cordova [Arizona Republic]
“..Mr. Soderbergh... cleverly evokes the style of these ubiquitous drug advertisements in the movie itself..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
3.5 of 4

“..it's a hell of a thriller, twisty, terrific and packed with surprises you don't see coming..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3 of 4

“..a workmanlike thriller that's better than the time of year when it's being released. It's not Soderbergh at his best but it never lost my attention..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
4 of 5

“..a nice farewell: fun and smart, with cutting satire and blunt shocks..”
by James Rocchi [MSN Movies]
Review rate : A-

“..a film that won't sit still. It's more than "just when you think you know what's happening, THIS happens." This is a rare case of the very genre of the film we're dealing with transforming without warning..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
3 of 4

“..a canny, cunning big idea thriller in a minor key, an engrossing zeitgeist whodunit about Wall Street, Big Pharma, prescription drugs and the power we give psychiatry and psychologists..”
by Roger Moore [Movie Nation]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
