Posted 03.16.12 by reelz
With Richard Roeper suggesting he didn't think we needed another rehashing of an 80's TV show for the big screen until he saw it and was summarily impressed, 21 Jump Street is getting some pretty solid grades with most critics agreeing that it's a funny, fresh take on what could be a tired riff.
"An incredibly engaging story, told impeccably, with a moral backbone for good measure."— Rob Power, SFX Magazine
"The Hunger Games has epic spectacle, yearning romance, suspense that won't quit and a shining star in Jennifer Lawrence."
— Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"The Hunger Games" may be derivative, but it is engrossing and at times exciting."— Kyle Smith, New York Post
"This futuristic tale of teenage violence is so not my kind of movie that I approached it grudgingly, so imagine my surprise when I ended up being totally exhilarated and enjoying it immensely."— Rex Reed, New York Observer
"ADD auds won't mind that there's no time to get to know anybody, or watch a relationship unfold, or ride the dramatic rise and swell of a compelling narrative."— Kathleen Murphy, MSN Movies
