“By the end, even Cruise’s contagious Cheshire grin looks like an act of desperation, our middle-aged Maverick finally meeting the consequences of his need for speed.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“…though strained, one’s suspension of disbelief holds fast: That was the 1980s, after all, and a time when daring scoundrels could outwit and outflank the authorities.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“Cruise plays this mostly for laughs, and it’s a return to the screen of the charmer of his earlier films.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“With everything that we witness, it’s easy to see how audiences can get behind AMERICAN MADE even if there are some alterations that could have been made to turn this into a fantastic feature film.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“By setting the precedent that Cruise is in fact someone capable of usurping the wildest of situations with ease and a hint of smugness, the story of Barry Seal roars onto the screen with the shagginess of a 70s/80s thriller.” – Sam Cohen, Substream Magazine

“The battle for equality may not be over, but BATTLE OF THE SEXES reminds us–in the slogan of the women’s tour sponsor–we’ve come a long way, baby.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“BATTLE OF THE SEXES is a terrific-looking movie photographed with intelligence and written in crayon.” – Sean Burns, Spliced Personality

“ There’s fascination to be found in even the most bafflingly erroneous work, and WOODSHOCK certainly had me engaged despite its flaws.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston
