(br) wrote: Thoroughly enjoyable twaddle.
(us) wrote: The Human Resources Manager of Israel's largest industrial bakery has to travel to Romania when an employee of theirs is killed in a terrorist attack, creating a public relations nightmare when the company does not notice her absence for a week. He brings her body to her home town to bring it to her family and make amends. Facing a series of setbacks, he gradually snaps out of his own depression. A lightly comic human drama that's largely fine without ever elevating itself to anything special.

(es) wrote: Hey Arnold: The Movie would have been better suited as a straight-to-TV film or even a 30 minute episode than a feature-film. Then again, its unwitty dialogue and crude sense of humor that parents may find inappropriate for children may have been the cost of that.
(ag) wrote: A sweeping, sophisticated epic that is beautiful visually and intellectually. The relationship based metaphors are subtle and don't take away from the overall construction of the film or story.

(ag) wrote: If you crave satisfaction...this is the place to find that ACTION. as a movie this sucks....it's horrible. As a definition of everything blaxploitation is and was, it suceeds all the way and that is why I rated this so highly. The movie is entertaining because, not only is it poorly shot (several instance the boom mic can be seen looming overhead) but the acting is so horrible as well! It seemed like they just pulled a bunch of local guys to be in the movie and it's hilariously bad. i give bad movies low ratings...but I give hilariously bad movies high ratings. Especially movies like this, that define a lost genre.

(nl) wrote: I know what you did last summer has a premise with potential and a well talented teen cast. But all those elements aren't enough for the film's rote approach and generic slasher cliches
