2.5 of 5

“..works at cross-purposes with the dramatic intent and the promising themes..”
by Mark Keizer [Boxoffice Magazine]
“..waiting for "Super" to deliver the funny is an experience as long as the film itself..”
by Rob Nelson [Va]
Review rate : 0

“..subversively funny, tonally twisted film morphs from something playful with dark undercurrents into the opposite..”
by Stephen Holden [NY Times]
Review rate : B

“..stands out from the pack for its brash, spiky, horrific real-world violence..”
by Scott Tobias [AV Club]
1.5 of 4

“..is the bleak, crazy, postmodern superhero..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
“..flings around its dingy shocks with little feel for context, wit or filmmaking skill..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
“..distinguishes itself with a deliberate tonal unevenness that's unsettling and annoying..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

JARHEAD 2: FIELD OF FIRE :

“..it's an okay action flick, but if you liked the original, you'll be disappointed..”
by JM Willis [Shockya]

FOUND :

“..a genuinely disturbing serial killer thriller..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [Hollywood Reporter]

HOW TO BUILD A BETTER BOY :

“..it's not like we were going to get something as wonderful as "Sixteen Candles" or as fetch as "Mean Girls." That doesn't make it bad; rather, if you're into a tamer version of "Weird Science," then this is the flick for you..”
by Denette Wilford [Huffington Post]

RAGNAROK :

“..the Scandinavian Loch Ness Monster treatment just isn't all that mind-blowing, and unfortunately, anything other than an impossible behemoth with sharp teeth would have been preferable..”
by Zach Hollwedel [Under the Radar]

LET'S BE COPS :

“..a mild chuckle every five minutes or so doesn't justify the predictable slog of this mistaken-identity farce..”
by Alonso Duralde [The Wrap]

LIFE AFTER BETH :

“.."Life After Beth," is funny and sweet and more than a bit misguided..”
by Kate Erbland [Film.com]

THE TRIP TO ITALY :

“..some bits are very funny, but they all come to seem like reaching..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]

JAKE SQUARED :

“..Jake Squared is partly a romantic comedy and mostly a pseudo-philosophical apology for self-absorption..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]

FORT MCCOY :

“..an old-fashioned, appealingly sentimental drama about homefront life during WWII..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]

SWELTER :

“..Swelter won't be for everyone as JCVD is severely wasted in a very minor role and there isn't that much in the way of action. However, if you're looking for a modern Western with surprising humour then you might just have a blast..”
by Eoin Friel [The Action Elite]
