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

THE IMITATION GAME :

“..its various riffs on codes, whether moral, sexual, societal or German, are plain to see rather than enigmatic or enlightening. Luckily it's all anchored in a storming performance from Cumberbatch..”
by Dave Calhoun [Time Out London]

PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR :

“..a frantic, peppy, in-your-face slice of irreverent toon action..”
by Geoff Berkshire [Variety]

HORRIBLE BOSSES 2 :

“..good for a few laughs, but not much more..”
by Justin Lowe [Hollywood Reporter]

THE SEARCH :

“..the film as a whole is tepid and familiar enough that it's hard to even find much to salvage in the acting..”
by Oliver Lyttelton [The Playlist]

RISE OF THE LEGEND :

“..a slick, polished and entertaining reboot of a folk legend..”
by Elizabeth Kerr [Hollywood Reporter]

FOOD CHAINS :

“..Rawal takes a compassionate but dry approach that suggests he's focused on making a call to arms, not art. The best documentaries manage to be both..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]

SEASONS OF LOVE :

“.."Seasons of Love" is a tedious love story that doesn't have the drama nor excitement of even ten minutes on the F train..”
by Monique A. Williams [Shadow and Act]

A ROYAL CHRISTMAS :

“.."A Royal Christmas" may not be the brightest bulb on the tree, if only because the story is so underpowered by original ideas..”
by Nancy DeWolf Smith [Wall Street Journal]

HELLO LADIES: THE MOVIE :

“..as a romantic comedy that stands on its own, Hello Ladies: The Movie hits every objective. It's a structurally sound movie, which may sound like an insult but simply means that it's not just a stretched out episode of Hello Ladies..”
by LaToya Ferguson [A.V. Club]

LATE PHASES :

“..Late Phases fails to deliver either shocks or real drama..”
by Katie Rife [A.V. Club]
