New Transporter Refueled movie got mostly negative reviews from top critics. EuropaCorp USA released their new action flick, “The Transporter Refueled,” into theaters today, September 4th, 2015, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics.

It turns out that most of them really didn’t like it with just an overall 31 score out of a possible 100 across 18 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Anatole Taubman, Ed Skrein, Gabriella Wright, Lenn Kudrjawizki, Loan Chabanol, Radivoje Bukvic, Ray Stevenson and Tatiana Pajkovic. We’ve added blurbs from a couple of the critics, below.

Kyle Anderson at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67 score. He said: “It’s hard to deny the hedonistic joy in the way Delamarre plays with his various toys, and the goofball stunts—including the yacht-based finale, with a special appearance by a jet ski—are generally worth wandering through the dialogue desert.”

Andrew Barker from Variety, gave it a 60 score. He stated: “The Transporter Refueled comes up strong where it counts, with frequent bursts of ludicrously implausible yet coherently directed mayhem.”

Ben Kenigsberg over at The New York Times, gave it a 40 grade, saying: “The Transporter Refueled is crass and nonsensical, but it is hard to hate a movie in which a medical anesthetic is administered with a nightclub fog machine, the weapons include a ringed life preserver, an escape from a moving plane continues by car onto a jetway and the touch-screen banking software appears expressly designed for double-crossing.”

James Rocchi from TheWrap, gave it a 40 grade, saying: “The action’s accent on Russian rogues, lethal ladies and Rivera-set car chases makes The Transporter Refueled feel less like a film and more like the world’s most violent Vanity Fair fashion spread, all poses and pouts instead of the two-fisted, rough life of the originals.”

Frank Scheck at the The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 40 score. He stated: “Director Camille Delamarre (Brick Mansions) and his collaborators have devised a few nifty sequences.”

hitman agent 47 movie poster image

New Hitman Agent 47 movie got mostly negative reviews from top critics. 20th Century FOX released their new action flick, “Hitman: Agent 47,” into theaters today, August 21st, 2015, and all the top critics have served up their reviews. It turns out that it really didn’t resonate well with most of them, getting just an overall 29 score out of a possible 100 at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto, Ciaran Hinds and Thomas Kretschmann. We’ve posted blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Kyle Anderson from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a not so great 58 grade, saying: “In this post-“Mad Max: Fury Road” action movie age, “occasionally bonkers” just doesn’t cut it anymore.”

Stephen Farber at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 40 score, saying: “After a while, you give up trying to make sense of the plot and sit there gaping at the car crashes, fight scenes, and shootings. The problem is that even the mayhem quickly becomes repetitive.”

Richard Roeper at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 38 grade, saying: “The plot is just high-tech Swiss Cheese, filled with holes and smelling like last week’s refrigerator contents.”

Robert Abele from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 30 score. He said: “Writers Skip Woods and Michael Finch have a few tricks up their sleeves as betrayals emerge and allegiances shift. But it’s not enough to make us care or to keep the third act from being a head-scratching mess.”

Inkoo Kang at TheWrap, gave it a 30 grade, saying: “For all its cheap talk about the importance of innovation, Agent 47 just feels like a copy of a copy of a copy.”

Justin Chang from Variety, gave it a 30 score. He said: “Insofar as Hitman: Agent 47 is about anything, really, it’s about the pleasures of being on location — from the gratuitous image of Ware taking a dip in a five-star-hotel swimming pool to the sight of Singapore’s staggering Gardens by the Bay.”

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 25 grade, saying: “Hitman: Agent 47 takes an austere European aesthetic and combines it with Hollywood mindlessness, and the result is like a guilty pleasure, minus the pleasure.”

New The Gift Movie got mostly positive reviews from top critics. STX Entertainment released their new horror/thriller flick, “The Gift,” into theaters today, August 7th, 2015, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that most of them liked it a lot with an overall 78 score out of a possible 100 score at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Jason Bateman, Joel Edgerton and Rebecca Hall. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Kevin P. Sullivan at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a great 91 score, saying: “The real joy of The Gift is getting to that twisted goodness, because more than anything, Edgerton’s script and direction demonstrate a keen understanding of tension and what puts an audience on edge.”

Gary Goldstein at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 90 grade. He said: “Although the film builds an effective sense of dread and contains its share of unnerving visuals and well-timed scares, it proves far more psychological thrill ride than shockfest.”

Joe Morgenstern from the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 90 score, stating: “You may know Mr. Edgerton as the actor who played the cocksure SEAL squadron commander in “Zero Dark Thirty,” and Tom Buchanan in “The Great Gatsby.” Who knew, though, that his debut feature would be so stylishly crafted, intricately psychological and genuinely thrilling?”

Stephen Holden from The New York Times, gave it a 90 score as well. He said: ” Underneath it all, The Gift is a merciless critique of an amoral corporate culture in which the ends justify the means, and lying and cheating are O.K., as long as they’re not found out.”

James Rocchi over at TheWrap, gave it a 90 score. He said: “Nothing here feels cheap or hasty, which is why the horror, when it comes, is all the more chilling and grim. Slick, sharp and legitimately terrifying, The Gift is a truly brilliant thriller — and, one hopes, the first of many features from Edgerton to come.”

Jon Frosch over at The Hollywood Reporter, gave it an 80 grade, saying: “Taken on its own undemanding terms and considered within its not very original framework, Joel Edgerton’s feature-length directorial debut is a pleasant — or pleasantly unpleasant — surprise, hitting its genre marks in brisk, unfussy fashion and raising a few hairs on the back of your neck along the way.”

New Pitch Perfect 3 Movie Is Possible,Director Is Thinking About It

New Pitch Perfect 3 movie is possible,director is thinking about it. Recently, the Collider folks chatted up Pitch Perfect 2 movie director, Elizabeth Banks, about a couple of things she has in the works, and of course, Pitch Perfect was one of them. Particularly, if she was ready to make a 3rd installment.

She pretty much answered them by saying, it’s up to the fans’ reactions to the 2nd installment, if she’ll sit down and try to come up with a story for a 3rd movie. She stated: “I will say, it would be disingenuous to say that no one’s talking about a Pitch Perfect 3; the possibility of it.

We are really focused on getting as many butts in seats for this one. If fans embrace it, we are going to seriously think about what the continuing journey would look like, but we don’t know what that is yet.

I guess I really love the story of legacy in this one, I knew I wanted the riff-off to look pretty much exactly what the riff-off looks like in this movie and I knew what the finale looked like, so I had some connection points into the story that really jazzed me up, and I don’t know what the story of the third one is yet. So I can’t say…but I’m excited to delve in and figure it out.”

New Chappie Movie Got Mixed Reviews From Top Movie Critics

New Chappie movie got mixed reviews from top movie critics. Columbia Pictures (Sony) released their new action/sci-fi flick, “Chappie,” into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that they fell pretty mixed on this one, giving it an overall 40 score out of a possible 100 across 37 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Hugh Jackman, Sigourney Weaver, Dev Patel, Sharlto Copley, Jose Pablo Cantillo, Ninja and Yo-Landi Vi$$er. We’ve added blurbs from a few of the critics,below.

Mick LaSalle from the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 score, saying: ” It’s a good sci-fi action movie, too. Far be it from me to give this movie the kiss of death by making it seem too serious for its core audience. Chappie is everything it has to be — but it’s everything it should be, too.”

Bill Zwecker over at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 63 grade, stating: “This is a well-meaning film with a good idea that unfortunately stumbles on its way to its less-than-satisfying end.”

Tom Russo from the Boston Globe, gave it a 63 score. He said: “Chappie boasts so many entertaining elements, particularly the lead motion-capture performance by Blomkamp’s go-to guy Sharlto Copley, its shortcomings don’t sink the movie.”

Claudia Puig from USA Today, gave it a 63 score. She said: “Chappie is meant to inspire questions about what it means to be human, and at times it does. However, director and co-writer Neill Blomkamp doesn’t explore its intriguing premise deeply enough.”

Manohla Dargis at The New York Times, gave it a 60 grade, saying: “Even at his shakiest, Mr. Blomkamp holds your attention with stories about characters banding together to emerge from a hell not of their own making, a liberation journey that just isn’t the same old, same old when a director was born in South Africa.”

Kyke Anderson from Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 50 score, saying: “When we’re first introduced, he’s an overwhelmed infant, and by the time the credits roll, he’s John McClane. Is that an accurate representation of how artificial intelligence can evolve? Absolutely. Does it make for compelling drama? Not particularly.”

Joe Morgenstern over at the Wall Street Journal, gave it a 50 grade, saying: “The technology is seamless, the movements are eloquent and the problem may be my own misprogramming, but the robot still looked to me like a man in a robot suit.”

Graham Fuller from the New York Daily News, gave it a 40 grade, saying: “Chappie is as subtle as a sledgehammer. The latest sci-fi action spectacle from “District 9” and “Elysium” director Neill Blomkamp is also sprawling, bombastic, deafening, ugly and ultra-violent.”

New The DUFF Movie Got Mixed Reviews From Top Critics

theduffmpsmall

New The DUFF movie got mixed reviews from top critics. CBS Films released their new comedy flick, “The DUFF,” into theaters this weekend, and the reviews are in from most of the top critics. It turns out that it got a mixed bag with an overall score of 55 out of a possible 100 across 26 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Allison Janney, Romany Malco, Mae Whitman, Ken Jeong, Bianca Santos, Robbie Amell, Bella Thorne, Skyler Samuels and Nick Eversman. We’ve added blurbs from a couple of the critics, below.

Inkoo Kang at TheWrap, gave it a nice 90 grade, saying: “There’s no doubt that The DUFF is clever, funny and quotable enough to become this decade’s “Mean Girls.” Watch your back, Regina George — there’s a new queen bee in town.”

Christy Lemire from RogerEbert.com, gave it a 75 score, stating: “Quickly and convincingly, it becomes its own funny and fast-paced phenomenon with its own modern-day charm.”

David Lewis at the San Francisco Chronicle, gave it a 75 score. He said: ” Overall, though, Sandel’s film has heart, some good laughs, and a decent message. In this age of cyberbullying, that’s nothing to scoff at.”

Kevin P. Sullivan at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 67 grade, stating: “As misspent of an opportunity as The DUFF may be, it’s hard to completely dismiss a film that gives someone as talented as Whitman her long-overdue spotlight.”

Richard Roeper over at the Chicago Sun-Times, gave it a 63, saying: “This is a well-intentioned and sometimes quite sharp high school movie that falls just short of the mark due to a few way-off-the-mark scenes and too much heavy-handed preaching.”

Kyle Smith from the New York Post, gave it a 63 grade. He stated: “Slightly radical in portraying high schoolers as human beings of normal niceness and intelligence. That means this winsome comedy is a little low in the stakes department, not to mention predictable, but it gets an “A” for charm.”

Elizabeth Weitzman from the New York Daily News, gave it a 60 score, saying: “Fortunately, the cast — featuring Allison Janney as Bianca’s scattered mom and Ken Jeong as her sympathetic mentor — is savvy and silly. Really, though, most of the credit goes to Whitman, who stands in, and stands up, for the DUFF in all of us.”

Sheri Linden from The Hollywood Reporter, gave it a 60 score. She said: “More a middle-of-the-road rom-com than a teen-spirit sendup, the pic weaves its lighthearted mix of silly and serious with increasingly heavy-handed spiels on self-esteem.”

Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 50 score, stating: “Romance, or the desire to find someone special, isn’t a bad thing — if it’s not the only thing. But as it stands in DUFF, the denouement at prom has cliché written all over it.”

spongebob movie: sponge out of water poster image

New SpongeBob Movie,Sponge Out of Water got mostly positive reviews from top critics. Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies released their new animated comedy flick, “SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water,” into theaters this weekend, and the top movie critics have delivered their reviews. It turns out that most of them did like it, giving it an overall 62 score out of a possible 100 across 22 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Antonio Banderas, Tom Kenny, Clancy Brown, Rodger Bumpass, Bill Fagerbakke, Carolyn Lawrence, and Douglas Lawrence. We’ve provided blurbs from a couple of the critics, below.

Alonso Duralde from TheWrap, gave it a terrific 88 score, saying: “The jokes are consistently hilarious, with enough variety to tickle the funny bones of old salts and young fishies alike.”

Elizabeth Weitzman from the New York Daily News, gave it an 80 grade, saying: ” The spirit of the series remains true: cheerfully random jokes, blink-and-you’ll-miss-them references and, above all, a silly, stubbornly sentimental streak that only the crabbiest cynic could dismiss.”

Andrew Barker from Variety, gave it another 80 score. He said: “At times there’s a genuine sense of daring to the film’s freewheeling anarchy, its refusal to stick to a central theme or impart any sort of lesson.”

Nicolas Rapold from The New York Times, gave it a 70 score. He stated: “The new film displays enough nutty writing and sheer brio to confirm the stamina of its enduring and skillfully voiced characters.”

Christy Lemire at RogerEbert.com, gave it a 63 grade, stating: “Zany and zippy as you’d expect, The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water remains true to the surrealism of its animated television roots.”

Sara Stewart over at the New York Post, gave it a 63, saying: “Ultimately, for the show’s fans, it may not matter if “Sponge Out of Water” shows a hint of mildew. After all, my co-critic’s most enthusiastic note — “Hilarious!” — was written before the lights even dimmed.”

Betsy Sharkey from the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score, saying: “What saves the film is that it is also packed to the gills with the classic slapstick sweetness that makes SpongeBob — in or out of water, on big screen or small — hard not to laugh at and love at least a little. Giggle, giggle.”

New Mortdecai Movie Got Mostly Negative Reviews From Top Critics

mortdecaimpsmall

New Mortdecai movie got mostly negative reviews from Top Critics. Lionsgate released their new comedy/action flick, “Mortdecai,” into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the top movie critics. It turns out that most of them were not happy with it, giving it a very low overall score of 27 out of a possible 100 across 17 reviews at Metacritic.com.

The movie stars: Ewan McGregor, Johnny Depp, Gwyneth Paltrow, Paul Bettany, Jeff Goldblum and Olivia Munn. We’ve added blurbs from a couple of the critics,below.

Gary Goldstein at the Los Angeles Times, gave it a 60 score, saying: “Those who do find their way into this supremely silly action-mystery caper are in for a few grins if not laughs thanks largely to the deft — and daft — performance of Johnny Depp in the title role.”

Alonso Duralde from TheWrap, gave it a 58 grade, stating: “Mortdecai is by no means a disaster — the occasional joke lands, and there’s at least some fun to be found in the frenetic farce of all the conspiracies and the running-around… Still, I spent most of the movie waiting for it to find its rhythms and set a witty pace for itself that would allow the humor to build and the outrageous situations to pay off grandly.”

Leah Greenblatt at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 42 score. She said: “The movie is too odd and randy to play for kids on an Austin Powers level, and too broad to really work as farce. But Depp, god bless him, fully commits, and finds a few genuinely funny moments amidst all the outsize mugging and mild sociopathy.”

Brian Truitt from USA Today, gave it a 38 grade, saying: “With a varied wardrobe of retro men’s finery and a hirsute upper lip, the title character of the silly comedy Mortdecai is the center of a whirlwind of horrible British accents, too much gagging, not enough good gags and weak dialogue that, while not exactly terrible, is terribly boring.”

Guy Lodge over at Variety, gave it a 30 score, saying: ” There’s a fatal shortage of zingers to supplement its exhausting zaniness.”
