Movie Reviews

  • the plot's baffling; Given its meandering script and absurdly grand guignol ending, it's astonishing that "The Birthday Cake" could attract such a starry cast
    2 of 5 by Leslie Felperin [The Guardian ]
  • it's boring; Each scene has great actors chewing the scenery to make their one day of work memorable, but it's more like a stack of performances than characters who keep you invested
    1 of 5 by Tara McNamara [Common Sense Media ]
  • even with all that firepower and some truly tense and harrowing moments, The Birthday Cake eventually grows a little stale and falls short of its ambitions to be a lower-budget descendant to films such as the aforementioned Goodfellas and A Bronx Tale
    2 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • even if this gangster saga has a respectable cast and gritty nostalgic verve, it feels more familiar than fresh
    by Todd Jorgenson [Cinemalogue ]
  • a valiant effort, "The Birthday Cake" will be an ordeal for the casual viewer, but holds enough mystery to pique the interest of those with a taste for the unusual
    3 of 5 by Kat Hughes [The Hollywood News ]
  • "Goodfellas" is a major reference point for this misjudged Mob flick from director Jimmy Giannopoulos, which feels very amateurish by comparison; The essential premise is a good one but inept execution scuppers it at nearly every turn
    2 of 5 by Emma Simmonds [Radio Times ]
