“..Transcendence fails in this arena thereby making the production as a whole feel bloated and unsatisfying..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 5

“..too bad. Despite its looks, talent and pedigree, "Transcendence" never becomes the movie it could have been..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
1.5 of 4

“..this post-apocalyptic vision of an unplugged tomorrow is supposed to be horrifying, but in truth, the thought of a world that has hit the restart button, however reluctantly, is actually kind of refreshing..”
by Michael O'Sullivan [Washington Post]

“..this is as predicted, but I didn't expect the end to come in a movie of complete and total incomprehensibility..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
0.5 of 4

“..nothing in this movie feels authentic, not even its overriding fear of all science and technology, which seems copied from countless old sci-fi films..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

“..it's all pretty predictable, and Pfister and his cast never do anything to confound our assumptions..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

“..is an ambitious movie, but ultimately there's too much "artificial" and not enough "intelligence"..”
by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

“..if you want to see a great movie about the dangers of artificial intelligence, check out what is still Steven Spielberg's best movie of this century, "A.I. Artificial Intelligence" - and skip this transcendentally awful bore..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..a far-fetched, futuristic snooze-fest that often defies its own logic..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

“.."Transcendence" is a movie that's of two minds. It's well-grounded, but also over the top..”

SELFLESS :

“.."Self/Less" is brain/less entertainment, but if there's any consolation, the impression it leaves is so fleeting that you can soon replace it with better movie memories..”
by Kevin Jagernauth [The Playlist]

FAITH OF OUR FATHERS :

“..a clumsily told story of friendship and wartime remembrance that has a tough time serving up a halfway believable moment..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]

STUNG :

“..director Benni Diez tries for schlock shocks in this giant-bug flick. Sadly, what's left out here is the fun..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN LIVES: WHAT HAPPENED? :

“..the movie is fun to watch, even if it isn't always fully satisfying. Too much time is spent depicting all the designs for the film that were ultimately scotched..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

JACKIE & RYAN :

“..a homey but surprisingly enjoyable ride through honest old mid-America..”
by Deborah Young [Hollywood Reporter]

AMY :

“..a tender, intimate, nuanced portrait of a pop idol with an appetite for destruction..”
by Stephen Dalton [Hollywood Reporter]

MALA MALA :

“..Mala Mala has no kinship to the rawness, if not ugliness, of Jennie Livingston's classic documentary, whose camera worked more like a curious open pore, and less like a hagiographic machine..”
by Diego Costa [Slant Magazine]

LARRY KRAMER IN LOVE AND ANGER :

“..the film follows the familiar narrative, which is neatly compressed in the title..”
by Matthew Gilbert [Boston Globe]

MAGIC MIKE XXL :

“..as Magic Mike XXL closes with fireworks and Tatum's winning smile, the film is obviously satisfied that it has overturned some mired tropes - and frankly, so are we..”
by Stacey May Fowles [Globe and Mail]

TERMINATOR GENISYS :

“..a bad time-travel movie..”
by Chris Nashawaty [Entertainment Weekly]
