REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  Be the 1st!

“..with the notable exceptions of a motorized fighting vest, and a horse and rider that inexplicably burst through a stone wall like an equestrian Kool-Aid Man, Tai Chi Hero is more Tai Chi Business as Usual..”
by Simon Abrams [Village Voice]
“..there's still a nagging, cartoonish emptiness - and a trilogy-ending installment still to come..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
2 of 4

“..Tai Chi Hero may ultimately look better in light of its own sequel... but now, its pitched battle between silliness and solemnity feels like a split decision..”
by Adam Nayman [Globe and Mail]
1.5 of 4

“..similar in style and tone to the first film, self-consciously irreverent and silly..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
2 of 4

“..is less about the many-stranded narrative..”
by Andrew Schenker [Slant Magazine]
“..despite a steampunk ambience, flashy video game and mangalike flourishes and fight choreography from the Hong Kong institution Sammo Hung, "Tai Chi Hero" merely fills the eye, offering little that stays with you..”
by Andy Webster [NY Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY :

“..colourful, tongue-in-cheek fun, purpose-built for grown-up lovers of kitsch '80s science-fiction. But the Marvel formula is starting to feel, well, a little too formulaic..”
by Dan Jolin [Empire Magazine]

THE FLUFFY MOVIE :

“..the personal material shines brightest in this consistently amusing if not hilarious stand-up comedy film..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

KICK :

“..is non-stop entertainment and Salman Khan at his best..”
by Sarita Tanwar [dna India]

HERCULES :

“..a picture that is easy to indulge in, and enjoy..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

A MOST WANTED MAN :

“..it's not a kind way for a memorable artist to say goodbye, but there's one thing you have to admit about Mr. Hoffman-he may have been many things, but boring was not one of them..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

VERY GOOD GIRLS :

“..Very Good Girls is a film one wants to like but can't. It just doesn't work..”
by Chuck Wilson [Village Voice]

AND SO IT GOES :

“..for all of its 93 minutes, you never feel anything significant is at stake for anyone..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

MY MAN IS A LOSER :

“..that type of movie hottie who hangs with the guys, becomes a love interest for the secretly lonely bachelor..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

COME BACK TO ME :

“..the film's clumsy script elicits groans, but it's the plot that infuriates..”
by Rob Staeger [Village Voice]

LUCY :

“.."Lucy" isn't really much of a thriller - it's virtually an anti-thriller, devoid of suspense or any real sense of danger due to the fact that its heroine is more or less invincible..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
