Review rate : C-

“..unfortunately, after a brisk and engaging first act, the film becomes bogged down by an overabundance of subplots and increasingly maudlin dramatic turns that threaten to sink the entire affair..”
by Cory Everett [The Playlist]
Review rate : C+

“..it falls completely flat..”
by Adam Chitwood [Collider]
“..is unquestionably an auteur film, but one festooned with so many bad and unnecessary ideas that one can't help wondering if a more modest, hemmed-in version of the same project might not have proved more effective..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3 of 4

“..is just as emotionally rich and heartfelt as his 2004 coming of age classic Garden State..”
by Mara Reinstein [Us Weekly]
“..a more mature work from actor-director-producer Zach Braff that feels like a Garden State for grown-ups..”
by Boyd van Hoeij [Hollywood Reporter]

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]
