Review rate : C+

“..There are some memorable images, including the sight of a beautiful, horse-riding "dead head"..”
by Clark Collis [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 5

“..The metaphor of senseless rancor is clear, but it's not compelling when the slow-moving monsters pose more of a nuisance than a threat..”
by Michael Ordona [LA Times]

“..Survival of the Dead lacks the wit of Zombieland, the polish and punch of last winter's The Crazies, a remake of a Romero zombie picture from the '70s...”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
2 of 4

“..seems stale..”
by Jeff Shannon [Seattle Times]
“..Romero's least memorable film..”
by Peter Hartlaub [San Francisco Chronicle]
2.5 of 5

“..painfully predictable zombie story..”
by Jason Morgan [Filmcritic.com]
1 of 4

“..more desultory still..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

“..Like the literary monster mash-ups that have invaded the best-seller lists, Survival of the Dead mixes genres and milieus with absurdist glee..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
1.5 of 4

“..destined for a quick, painful box-office death and a lonely afterlife on Netflix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..At best, Survival's ending, with a riff on "beating a dead horse," may be taken for evidence of self-awareness..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE CROSSING 2 :

“..an inert follow-up that doesn't deliver enough visual or emotional payoff in its overdue yet short-lived shipwreck climax..”
by Maggie Lee [Variety]

SHAUN THE SHEEP :

“..this is the kind of stuff that has been, and will be, funny forever - built on eternal human fears and foibles that, whatever your age, make complete and hilarious sense..”
by Robbie Collin [Daily Telegraph]

THE END OF THE TOUR :

“..The End Of The Tour largely remains a two-man show, expertly approximating the vagaries of actual conversation-the starts and stops that occur when two strangers are getting to know each other, one sentence at a time..”
by A.A. Dowd [A.V. Club]

NORTHMEN: A VIKING SAGA :

“..Bastian Zach and Matthias Bauer actually have to come up with something other than people shooting, stabbing and bludgeoning each other to death. If only they had put this kind of effort into creating characters worth caring about in the first place..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

JENNY'S WEDDING :

“..ultimately, it becomes more a film about Jenny's parents as they learn to embrace and understand her..”
by Katie Walsh [LA Times]

STATEN ISLAND SUMMER :

“..frustratingly, the movie is plenty likable when it's not trying to show off its wistfulness. As a reader of the fake news, Jost should know that sometimes silly jokes are their own reward..”
by Jesse Hassenger [A.V. Club]

A LEGO BRICKUMENTARY :

“..there isn't much the viewer won't be able to answer about Legos by the end of "A Lego Brickumentary," except, perhaps, why he or she has just watched a 90-minute commercial for Legos..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

BEST OF ENEMIES :

“..a timely but unsatisfying exploration of a series of exchanges between conservative Buckley and liberal Vidal makes its case too little and too late..”
by Inkoo Kang [The Wrap]

EXTINCTION :

“..if only they had more screen time. The film's core problems: too little zombie and too much plot..”
by Katherine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

THE SEVENTH DWARF :

“..short on charm and utterly devoid of magic..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
