“..with a wink, a nudge and a heaping portion of Midwestern charm, "Thin Ice" reels us in..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
Review rate : C

“..when a movie is this predicated on aping the Coen brothers, surprise won't be its strong suit..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
“..though it's often enjoyable, you can never quite forget that you've seen it all before..”
by Walter V. Addiego [San Francisco Chronicle]
1.5 of 4

“..the story ultimately doesn't even bother to satisfyingly resolve, instead opting for a conclusion that's faux-cute without being coherent..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
“..the story sets just the precise tone, balanced between comical antics and murkier surprises..”
by Prairie Miller [NewsBlaze]

“..the ending feels like a cop-out..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..the best thing about Thin Ice is that it is unpredictable for the most part..”
by JimmyO [JoBlo's Movie Emporium]
“..seems to have been assembled in a spirit of anxious caution, with the hope of making something as derivative and second-rate as possible..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]

“..perfectly acted, and nicely shot..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

LATEST REVIEWS

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
