“..this is a movie that wants to riff on hard-boiled Hollywood film noir and pulp novels, but has absolutely no clue how to do it..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]
“..Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" is the way its high style is brought low - visually stunning but emotionally vapid, unrelentingly violent..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]

“..Sin City: A Dame to Kill For isn't the resounding triumph we craved..”
by Ben Rawson-Jones [Digital Spy]
3 of 5

“..Sin City 2 glowers and sulks and is determined to show you the best bad time you've had in years. It's neither high art nor noir, but it's what a Sin City film should be..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

“..sillier than the original, if that's possible, and almost as entertaining..”

LATEST REVIEWS

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

THE TALE OF TALES :

“..a dreamy, fresh take on the kind of dark and gory yarns that have come down to us from the Brothers Grimm and Charles Perrault, only here they're pleasingly new and unfamiliar..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

PERFECT HIGH :

“..it's neither sufficiently impressive on its own merits to be a quality film, nor is it deliciously trashy enough to make for a pleasurable viewing..”
by Alex McCown [A.V. Club]

MAX :

“..a post-9/11 "Benji," enlivened by a solid cast and slightly edgy action..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

INTO THE GRIZZLY MAZE :

“..the elements are there for an old-fashioned animal-as-serial-killer romp, just regrettably given a formulaic telling and poorly assembled by director David Hackl..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
