3 of 5

“..with more whimsy than a Wes Anderson wedding - and a clunky third act that potholes the plot - Jeunet's American comeback is beautiful, heart-warming and a bit of a mess..”
by Paul Bradshaw [Total Film]
4 of 5

“..very whimsical but also sweetly endearing..”
by Allan Hunter [Daily Express]
2 of 5

“..though a film that will certainly stay with you, it's difficult to know exactly who this film is aimed at, and what is to be taken away from proceedings..”
by Stefan Pape [HeyUGuys]

“..a far from perfect equation, but it's worth investigating..”

LATEST REVIEWS

LEGEND :

“..while he arguably fails to rein in his leading man (or half of him), screenwriter-turned-director Helgeland has a light touch, leavening the ultra-violence - and there are gory scenes - with a flair for absurdity..”
by Helen O'Hara [Daily Telegraph]

THE TRANSPORTER REFUELED :

“..this film is so stupid it may burst your appendix..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BEFORE WE GO :

“..Evans and Eve are always charming, but Brooke's real-world problems ring false in a story held together by chintzy fatalism and the logic of a first draft..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]

BREAK POINT :

“..Jay Karas doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel as he puts this odd couple through the paces of getting in shape and reconciling old wounds, but he's helped by some laugh-out-loud quirk in Gene Hong's screenplay, nice comic chemistry between the two leads..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

STEVE JOBS: MAN IN THE MACHINE :

“..sharp as always from Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

CHLOE AND THEO :

“..borrowing themes from "Candide," it makes us wonder why bad things happen to good people. Including movie audiences..”
by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune]

BLOODSUCKING BASTARDS :

“..the film takes a long time to get going because of all the prolonged, glib chit-chat that loses whatever satirical edge it might have initially possessed..”
by Michael Rechtshaffen [LA Times]

CONTRACTED: PHASE II :

“..has contracted many of the same problems with the first film - it's plagued with pacing and character issues - but still has enough gags for the home video audience..”
by Brad Miska [Bloody Disgusting]

EVEREST :

“..in narrative terms it's messy - as true stories tend to be. The dramatic focus is split between around half a dozen characters based on real people and it's not clear who we should root for..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

BEASTS OF NO NATION :

“..artful, accomplished but not entirely sustained adaptation..”
by Justin Chang [Variety]
