4 of 5

“..this version does have dwarves, and they're played by non-dwarf actors who've been reduced by special effects..”
by Glenn Kenny [MSN Movies]
3 of 5

“..this revisionist fairy tale does not give us is a passionate love - its kisses are as chaste as the snow is white..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
“..they summon up a sumptuously dark and revisionist kingdom that's closer to "Game of Thrones" than the Brothers Grimm..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
“..there's no sense of narrative priority-the filmmakers can't see the Dark Forest for the trees..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
2 of 5

“..the script and dialogue are both frequently dull and there's a painful lack of humour throughout..”
by Matthew Turner [ViewLondon]
3.5 of 5

by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]

“..imperfections in first-time director Rupert Sanders' surreal epic fantasy don't ruin the overall effect, just tarnish it a little..”
by Randy Myers [San Jose Mercury News]
4 of 4

“..he film has the DNA of a blockbuster and the soul of a haunting folk tale. It is as dangerous, dark, intelligent and beautiful as its wraithlike villainess..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
Review rate : C

“..has enough visual flourish to provide periodic distraction from its narrative and thematic muddle..”
by Chris Vognar [Dallas Morning News]
2.5 of 4

“..has enough visual fireworks to keep the film afloat, even if star Kristen Stewart can't get out of Twilight mode..”
by Scott Bowles [USA Today]

“..freaky and twee..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
2.5 of 4

“..feels like it was made from the pieces of every fantasy-action movie ever made..”
by Ty Burr [Boston Globe]
2.5 of 4

“..as a director of actors, Sanders has no flair for modulation..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..a slow, boring film that has no charm and is highlighted only by a handful of special effects..”
by Mick LaSalle [San Francisco Chronicle]

DEATH DO US PART :

“..this is a nice one that hits the marks it needs to in just enough fashion..”
by Chuck Conry [ZombiesDontRun.net]

NO GOD, NO MASTER :

“..No God, No Master, his newest work - indicate that Green is both a capable filmmaker and a clear history buff..”
by Danny King [Village Voice]

ONLY LOVERS LEFT ALIVE :

“..one of the strongest films yet from Jim Jarmusch..”
by Sheri Linden [LA Times]

JOE :

“..it's a shame the film lacks the same subtlety and force. Joe is about starting over before it's too late..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PERFECT SISTERS :

“..much of the film is slipshod, but the domestic crisis (Mom's new boyfriend is an abusive creep) packs a real wallop, as does the solution..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

RIO 2 :

“.."Rio 2" is not what I would call Amazon prime, but it's got enough silly songs and daffy critters to keep the little ones happy..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

OCULUS :

“..for all its genre delights, Oculus is little more than a well-tooled creepshow..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

DRAFT DAY :

“..while "Draft Day" is a very agreeable and predictable movie, it is also very timely..”
by Jordan Hoffman [Film.com]

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 :

“..a patchy script, disappointing action and lackluster villain..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

BAD ASSES :

“..a completely predictable made-for-home video offering, but for those looking for a rather mindless ninety minutes of comic action, it can serve as a reliable time passer..”
by Matt Hough [Home Theater Forum]
