“…this film does a lot of things right, yet leaves much to be desired at the same time.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“…the roughness of Hill’s boxy, 16mm compositions cast their own spell.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“There’s a lackadaisical, conflict-averse quality to this picture that leaves a galling aftertaste.” – Sean Burns, The ARTery

“HUNTER KILLER insults the intelligence of its audience, plays into decades-old politics, and wastes the talents of some solid actors. It’s wholly without value.” – Deidre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“Like the recent HALLOWEEN, it is an unapologetic genre film that treats its material – and the audience – with respect.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“Fans of the two previous JOHNNY ENGLISH films will find this on par with the previous efforts, as will those who have enjoyed Atkinson’s turn as the equally inane Mr. Bean.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN is perfectly fine in its own right, but its naiveté feels dated and unnecessary. For a spy film with car chases and explosions, it falls flat and fails to fully engage.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“Sure, it’s silly fun that you might forget the moment you leave the theater, but given these tense times, that might be enough.” – Brett Michel, The Improper Bostonian

“If you found any sort of value in the first two movies in the trilogy and know what to expect ahead of time, you should give JOHNNY ENGLISH STRIKES AGAIN a chance.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

 

WTH_00000312_RWHAT THEY HAD

“WHAT THEY HAD feels like a timely film, given the aging population in America, and will likely strike a nerve with people who are struggling with elder care issues in their own families.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest

“THE PRICE OF EVERYTHING is not hard-hitting investigative journalism. It’s a soft, though sporadically prying, look at the high prices and high living of art dealers and collectors today.” – Deirdre Crimmins, High-Def Digest
