2.5 of 4

“..this likely won't matter to moviegoers hungry for the thrills that World War Z amply provides, which include a harrowing up-close moment that will remind you of a certain Chianti-sipping doctor..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
2.5 of 4

“..the result is a movie that, while no classic, can be credited with giving the audience something a bit more substantive than the usual disposable summer fare..”
by Ann Hornaday [Washington Post]
3 of 5

“..its action set pieces are cleverly conceived and coherently executed in ways that make them feel surprising, even exciting..”
by A.O. Scott [New York Times]
3 of 5

“..is not a brilliant addition to the zombie lore. But it's also not the shuffling mess it was rumoured to be. It's an attempt at large-scale seriousness in a genre that's frequently preposterous..”
by Henry Barnes [The Guardian]
3 of 4

“..essentially, it boils down to familiar fare: a well-paced, entertaining, conventional action thriller where a reluctant hero saves the day..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
3 of 4

“..but World War Z is still as smart, shifty and scary as a starving zombie ready to chow down on you, baby, you..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..a surprisingly smart, gripping and imaginative addition to the zombie-movie canon..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
3.5 of 5

“.."World War Z" plays a bit like a series of separate films and the juncture where the new final act was grafted onto the proceedings is unmistakable, but unless you knew about the film's troubled past, you'd never guess it existed..”
by Kenneth Turan [Los Angeles Times]

LATEST REVIEWS

PAUL BLART: MALL COP 2 :

“..the rest was a blur of weak slapstick, one over-dyed moustache and vague sexism, ageism and sizeism..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

CHILD 44 :

“..unrelentingly grim, plodding, and close-to-incoherent adaptation of Tom Rob Smith's best-selling mystery..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

UNFRIENDED :

“..a flashy new coat of paint for the "found footage" genre of horror movie, replacing wobbly handheld cameras with webcams and Skype. Unfortunately, the engine underneath that gloss is woefully familiar, offering the same jump scares we've seen..”
by Jacob Hall [NY Daily News]

MONKEY KINGDOM :

“..these gorgeous-looking films are so much more than chronicles of nature. They have a heart and an insight that's remarkable..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

ALEX OF VENICE :

“..although it's enjoyable, actor Chris Messina's directorial debut is somehow less than the sum of its parts, wading only through the shallow end of familiar human conflicts resolved too conveniently to satisfy..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]

TRUE STORY :

“..lightweight script doesn't help a grandiose premise..”
by John Anderson [Newsday]

MONSTERS: DARK CONTINENT :

“..plays like a dorm-room answer to modern war films, complete with the constant profanity and masculine hysterics that pass for impact in an immature script..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]

THE ROAD WITHIN :

“..three superb young actors try but fail to bolster a thin script..”
by Stephen Farber [Hollywood Reporter]

BEYOND THE REACH :

“..it isn't nearly as much creepy fun as it sounds like..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

THE SQUEEZE :

“..between plot and character, there are definitely 18 holes in "The Squeeze"..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]
