Jared C (us) wrote: Unlike many exaggerated Asian action films and Eastern Eye films this is really good. For starters its like Spy Kids meets Jet Li. The film has really very well crafted characters with very well scripted writing, if you took out the chinese diaologue it would pass as a American film. But its brilliant the way it is, the actors don't over esaggerate their acting but play their parts very well with some intentional wacky humor inserted in,fights are choreographed by Yuen Woo Ping and its produced by super star who we all know Jackie Chan. It could have gone on longer, otherwise there is enough there to keep you entertained. Plus the cover can be decieving in some ways

Terrence W (jp) wrote: God, this movie was so stupid, inane, unfunny and a poor mash of cliches that I couldn't stand to watch any more after the first 30-40 minutes.

Dan G (fr) wrote: We laughed almost the entire film. This is not a buddy-cop movie. It is a satire of one, and seen in that light provided an enjoyable evening. The actual plot was just enough to keep the story going, so that one can enjoy the two main actors: Ford and Hartnett. In this film, as opposed to other buddy-cop old-cop/young-cop films, they actually like each other and don't have the artificial conflict that so many buddy-cop movies have. The subplots are actual more important than the so-called "plot." Harnett wants to be an actor, and not a cop, and on the side is some type of new-age personal trainer. And Ford is a real-estate dealer on the side. Neither of them are any good at their side jobs. Neither of them take themselves seriously, and that's part of the romp. There is a smattering of other well-known actors and entertainers through the film, which adds to the fun. We give most films we watch a 3. This one is a cut above the average. We will watch it again in a few years, and I'm sure enjoy it just as much.

Brett B (ag) wrote: A witty, grim comedy. Director Sidney Lumet keeps things pretty conservative, stylistically, allowing the script and the acting be the focal points, which is not surprising given the project's stage origins. Caine and Reeve are pitch-perfect in their respective roles, and Cannon is surprisingly funny as Caine's wife. The dialogue and plotting are nearly flawless for the majority of the running time, but it does (unfortunately) kind of come flying off its hinges in the third act. It's not enough to retroactively ruin the earlier parts of the movie, but it does end the film on something less than a high note.

Paul C (us) wrote: A real curio this but it is pretty good and quite eerie for the period in which it was made. Of course once the 'fiends' are revealed the SFX of the time shows its limitations.

Kevin R (fr) wrote: She loved her father too much.A writer meets a socialite engaged to a politician and falls in love. They reluctantly agree to be together and later become married. The socialite had a deep relationship with her father and she sees a lot of qualities from her father in the writer. Since her father passed away recently, she may have a strange protective complex when it comes to her husband. How far will she take her protective ways?"Mother in laws should be like children, seen and not heard."John Stahl, director of Imitation of Life, The Keys of the Kingdom, Holy Matrimony, Magnificent Obsession, and Only Yesterday, delivers Leave Her to Heaven. The storyline for this picture is amazing and reminded me of Sweet Bird of Youth (Paul Newman). The characters are so dynamic and unpredictable and the action scenes are dramatic in a Hitchcock kind of way. The acting is wonderful as the cast includes Gene Tierney, Cornel Wilde, Vincent Price, Jeanne Crain, and Gene Lockhart."I hate him.""Why?""Because you know him.""That's nice. Are you going to hate everyone I know?"Leave her to Heaven was a movie I DVR'd because it starred Vincent Price. I will say he was only in 2-3 scenes (total) but that did not detract from the greatness of this film. This is a very underrated gem with great drama and fascinating characters. The character development and dialogue are both perfect. I strongly recommend seeing this picture."Of all the deadly sins, jealousy is the most deadly."Grade: A

Joey F (ca) wrote: I LOVE this movie. I love it so, so much. It's one of the few historical films that actually manages to tell a story with themes and motifs and ideas, rather than just a bland cinematic telling of a true story. On top of that, it's based around music which is a huge plus for me personally. I don't know, it's just flawless as far as I'm concerned.

Walter M (it) wrote: In "Welcome to the Punch," Ruan Sternwood(Elyes Gabel, of "Scorpion") tries to flee the country but faints because of a severe bullet wound before he can do so. Before he does, he places a phone call to his father Jacob(Mark Strong) who is wanted on pretty every charge imaginable and ironically allows the police to trace him to Iceland. But because the police do not take the advice of Detective Max Lewinsky(James McAvoy), Jacob is able to elude about half the Icelandic military in his escape. After which, Max is placed on the case full time, even as his partner Sarah Hawks(Andrea Riseborough) worries that he might be too emotionally involved, only to be expected considering that Jacob kneecapped him the last time he tried to capture him."Welcome to the Punch" is a stylish crime thriller. However, it still suffers from some of the cliches of the genre, namely predictability, especially as it concerns one character's fate. What keeps this movie from being completely ordinary are the set pieces and Andrea Riseborough's cool impression. And then there is the great chemistry between Mark Strong and Peter Mullan which instantly elevates any scenes they share.
