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]

TOMORROWLAND :

“..the movie can conjure up futuristic images, but the story is nothing we haven't seen before...”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]

POLTERGEIST :

“..the spirits may have been willing with Poltergeist but the movie is weak..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

WHEN MARNIE WAS THERE :

“..will make fans of the Japanese animation studio yearn for when Hayao Miyazaki was there. The now-retired maestro of the form had a sense of poetry and lyricism that's sadly missing here..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE III :

“..more depravity, more terrible acting..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

CHOCOLATE CITY :

“..a black riff on a certain stripper movie smash..”
by Roger Moore [Tribune News Service]

ALOFT :

“..the rest of it - the healer, the journalist, the falcons - is just a thick, tedious layer of frost on the window..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

RETURN TO SENDER :

“..the camera prowls menacingly through the interiors, but the writers seem too content with their improbable conceit to bother with back story or character arcs..”
by David Parkinson [Radio Times]

ROOMMATE WANTED :

“..there's plenty of entertainment value to found. Just don't expect to leave the film with a smile on your face and joy in your heart..”
by Blair Hoyle [Cinema Slasher]

CAROL :

“..it is a creamily sensuous, richly observed piece of work, handsomely detailed and furnished..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

YOUTH :

“..Youth has a wan eloquence and elegance, though freighted with sentimentality and a strangely unearned and uninteresting macho-geriatric regret for lost time, lost film projects, lost love..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]
