REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

1.5 of 4

“..true, the stars are very good at what they do, but so what?..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
4 of 5

“..tough to watch: a seismic jolt of violence both physical and psychological, with bruises both visible and deeply burrowed..”
by Alexis Loinaz [Chicago Tribune]
“..their performances are so raw, so visceral, you feel the blows, wince at the bruises, cry at their pain..”
by Betsy Sharkey [Los Angeles Times]
Review rate : B

“..the performances carry the film and occasionally lift it beyond its kitchen-sink lower-depths doldrums..”
by Peter Rainer [Christian Science Monitor]
“..the film's shots are calm and composed, almost meditative; there are no canted camera angles or jangling cuts, and much of the violence occurs off-screen..”
“..the film doesn't fetishize the violence, often keeping the worst of it offscreen..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
“..the characters are trapped, suffocated, pushed through a story that gives them very little room or time to figure themselves out, and that finally turns their feelings into the wan stuff of fable..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
3 of 5

“..isn't easy viewing, and surely isn’t pretty, but his actors are remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
3 of 4

“..brutal, indeed..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
“..British miserabilism at its most numbingly brutal and blunt..”
by Melissa Anderson [Village Voice]
Review rate : B+

“..a warning flag for queasy viewers that things won't be pretty here, but those who stay just a bit longer come to see his immediate regret over the matter..”
by William Goss [Film.com]

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]
