BOFCA REVIEW ROUND-UP: 10/28/2016

1-on6cCIOkcfnYz05NToe5iQINFERNO

“INFERNO isn’t bad and isn’t good, it just sits there, stagnant, waiting for something to propel it beyond the run of the mill.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“…the spectacle of watching supremely talented people put together something that more or less plays out like a big-budget network TV drama pilot is really quite a bit of fun, though none of them can chew the scenery with quite the same panache that Ian McKellen did in the first movie.” - Bob Chipman, Geek.com

“Watch INFERNO and every time there is a line of dialogue that is not just exposition to help you understand the hilariously overcomplicated plot, take a drink. By the end of the picture, you’ll be legally under the limit to drive home.” – John Black, Boston Event Guide

“INFERNO is not your typical movie filled with the usual qualities associated with excellent storytelling, but it uses its style to do what it needs to do in order to entertain and provide value.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential

“…a fast-paced timewaster for those viewers undemanding enough not to care about plot, character, or logic.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies

“This is South Korean director, Park Chan-wook (OLDBOY, STOKER) at the very top of his game, crafting an illustrative and illustrious affair that singes the mind with striking images and enchanting storytelling.” – Greg Vellante, Edge Boston

“In our American cultural context, THE HANDMAIDEN open carnality feels like a hand grenade of provocation in our normal pop diet of stabbings and shootings.” – Andy Crump, Paste Magazine

“Even though I still see THE HANDMAIDEN as being effective and pleasant, it’s not as compelling or suspenseful as it could have been had they continued down the more obscure path it originally looked like it could head in.” – Jaskee Hickman, Cinematic Essential
