Review BlurbFilm
'Like one of those fake-smart, middlebrow TV shows, the speciousness of [Title] is disguised by topicality. It's really a movie excusing Hollywood ruthlessness.'
'If critics and fanboys weren't suckers for simplistic nihilism and high-pressure marketing, It would be universally acclaimed as a visionary feat, superior to Inception and Avatar
'Like Grand Theft Auto's quasi-cinematic extension of noir and action-flick plots, [Title] manipulates the digital audience's delectation for relentless subterfuge.'
'Most critics will love its Sundance formula because it flatters their sense of being liberal and progressive by making controversial issues comfortable.'
'It reexamines assumptions of good and evil-morality tale vs, trite entertainment-by confronting the hideous compromises people make with social conventions...'
'so besotted with brand names and product-placement that it stops being about the innocent pleasures of imagination -- the usefulness of toys -- and strictly celebrates consumerism
'The Smiths aim for bigger box-office numbers by offering a secondhand fantasy that replaces academic hard work with the superficial amusement of martial arts self-defense.'
'[Title] is exactly what critics and audiences deserve following the celebration of that awful, dung-hued first film.'
'Cyrus' acting ability makes Veronica's emotional make-over work.'
'Not since The Birth of a Nation has a mainstream movie demeaned the idea of black American life as much as [Title].'
Review BlurbFilm
'The plot's a cynical/sentimental rip-off of Flaubert's novel Sentimental Education, yet full of commercial calculation.'
'It is so annoyingly cute about the smartness of middle-class young white people in love that one quickly realizes it is only about that -- not love nor passion...'
'[Title] is more proof [Bay] has a great eye for scale and a gift for visceral amazement.
'Why would anyone want to make -- or watch -- this Hillcoat/McCarthy desolation except to feel fashionably cynical?'
'Its hypocrisy is hidden inside a disingenuous promotional campaign that suggests change has come to Disney's animated white house.'
'The corniest movie ever made about the white man's need to lose his identity and assuage racial, political, sexual and historical guilt.'
'QT manipulates WWII horror into hip pornography -- Jewish revenge looks just like the sadism in Eli Roth's Hostel movie. Our political and moral responses are discombobulated.'
'Its appeal to the pop-commercial synapses also demonstrates livelier filmmaking than such utter banality as Iron Man and Star Trek and Harry Potter's Half-Blooded Chintz.'
'Forget the Oscar bait, [Title] 3 is the only movie you need to see this season.'
'The generation of consumers who swallow this pessimistic sentiment can't see past the product to its debased morality.'
