Movie Reviews

  • the formidable creature looming over "A Monster Calls" is one of the more unnerving, impressive special-effects creations of the year
    by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times ]
  • the film belongs alongside "Pan's Labyrinth" in the realm of darkly creative kid-centric films that are, at their core, not really kids' fare at all
    3 of 4 by Sara Stewart [New York Post ]
  • strange and memorable, but frustratingly over-polite
    3 of 5 by Tom Huddleston [Time Out London ]
  • in lesser hands, A Monster Calls could be sapped by emotional excess. But Bayona keeps reality and fantasy in delicate balance
    3.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • from its elegant title to its unexpectedly edgy tone, "A Monster Calls" makes its own way. There is magic, real magic here, and if it doesn't manifest itself in every frame, it's just going to have to be that way
    by Kenneth Turan [LA Times ]
  • Bayona balances these dramatic moments with understatement, and the result is an especially strong, wordless finale
    Review rate : B by Eric Kohn [Indiewire ]
  • "A Monster Calls" is a lovely film and another impressive calling card for Bayona, who can mix genres in an innovative way like his former producer, Guillermo del Toro
    4.5 of 5 by Edward Douglas [NY Daily News ]
