“7.5/10 fun pseudo western, only brought down by a deemphasis of Kim's usual visual madness ad too long spent with Forest Whittakers FBI guys. Easy to recommend though ”
“7.75/10 Soderbergh's ability to present characters and their worlds whilst coaxing naturalistic performances out of his actors remains beyond reproach ”
“8/10 In many ways follows the well worn trajectory of the high to low celeb biopic but is elevated by a vulnerable performance by Douglas, and a confident Damon. Soderbergh paints his usual opulence over the environments, period detail and opulence ”
“8.25/10 Great fun. Captures the spirit of the relationships and world of the series. The 'fan service' is the right level for a big screen outing, the CG camera movement and sense of scale are dizzying and there's some nice continuity nods. ”
“8/10 Difficult to say how it stacks up against part 1 as it has a different agenda, but Black and Downey fashion a fun, fast and visceral caper with enough twists, blasts and zingers to secure it a place on the upper tier of the sub-genre ”
“6/10 satisfying production value cannot disguise a patchy, inherently un-cinematic story that uncomfortably shifts between mundane realism and near hysterical melodrama. Doesn't seem to have anything to say beyond the glorification of its protagonist”
Rated it 3 out of 5 stars ★★★☆☆
“Fairly promising start. Commits to its sci-fi trappings and has good leads. Hope it continues to 'open out' ”
Rated it 4 out of 5 stars ★★★★☆
“Michael James’s review:
Putrid, squalid and depraved. In good ways. Elijah Wood falters however.
