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]

THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH :

“..a film that, despite its watery climax, paddles in the shallows, content to give us more easy Woman thrills, without really examining the horror of what makes us human..”
by Leigh Singer [IGN Movies]

LEVIATHAN :

“..powerful, craftily allusive and elusive film, the director's best and most courageous so far..”
by Leslie Felperin [Hollywood Reporter]

A MOST VIOLENT YEAR :

“..director J.C. Chandor has delivered a tough, gritty, richly atmospheric thriller that lacks some of the formal razzle-dazzle of his solo seafaring epic..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]

SELMA :

“..one of the most powerful films of the year..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

AMERICAN SNIPER :

“..a solidly-staged but unexceptional picture, filled with overly familiar dramatic situations and a surprisingly blindered view of the world around its central character..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

ASK ME ANYTHING :

“..Ask Me Anything is a head above the glut of similarly themed and routinely rashly..”
by Nicholas Bell [Ioncinema]

BIG EYES :

“..despite its sharp feminist sting, Big Eyes never loses its light touch..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]

PK :

“..PK movie is all that you anticipated, a paisa-vasool entertaining movie that will enthrall you for sure..”
by Priyanka Prasad [Filmibeat]

INTO THE WOODS :

“..will entertain youth audiences yet contains enough sly humor and narrative complexity to keep adults engaged..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM: SECRET OF THE TOMB :

“..there's a serenity to museum visits, especially if it's a place you know and love. "Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb," amazingly, recaptures that feeling in big-studio franchise form..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]
