Review rate : B

“..Warrior is at times almost gravely self-important. The gifted director Gavin O'Connor (Miracle) brings the film an affecting, ripped-from-the-guts spirit, even if he can't really hide how many old-movie tropes are floating around in it..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
3.5 of 4

“..Warrior has real emotional resonance, vivid, finely crafted performances and a story that will seize you from its opening moments. Action movies are never this good..”
by Bruce DeMara [Toronto Star]
3.5 of 4

“..this is in some ways a more powerful and disturbing motion picture. It offers a catharsis but there's something bittersweet about the way in which Warrior concludes..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
“..the film so audaciously piles on a series of shameless, head-shaking contrivances and is so happy to milk them for all they're worth that it starts to feel like, heaven help us, a mixed martial arts version of "The Help"..”
by Kenneth Turan [LA Times]
3 of 4

“..it's a mixed martial arts tale, and as such, it's the best MMA movie ever..”
by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel]
4 of 4

“..it weaves the best elements of "The Fighter," "Million Dollar Baby" and "The Wrestler" into a story so heartfelt and well-acted that any objections to what's been adapted from elsewhere seems to matter less as the movie goes on..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]
“..it is appropriately blunt, powerful and relentless, a study of male bodies in sweaty motion and masculine emotions in teary turmoil..”
by A.O. Scott [NY Times]
4 of 5

“..is one of those movies that, if you were to describe it to friends in an attempt to tell them how much you enjoyed it, you would sound ridiculous..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
3 of 4

“..combine the sibling tensions and hopped-up dysfunction of The Fighter with the working-class underdog heroics of Rocky, pile on big heaps of corn, and throw it all into an Ultimate Fighting Championship cage, and you have the crazily enjoyable Warrior..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
3 of 4

“..a relentless, emotionally engaging family drama and underdog saga with touches of Rocky mixed with The Fighter..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]

DOPE :

“..a crowd-pleaser from start to finish..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

STRANGERLAND :

“..Strangerland is ruined by the preciousness of its ideas..”
by Tim Grierson [Screen Daily]

TEN THOUSAND SAINTS :

“..it's a film that clearly has nothing but compassion for the troubled teens at the center of it, and well-worth checking out..”
by Chris Bumbray [Joblo]

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]
