Review by Christy Lemire
Slick, glossy and radiating juicy villainy, it knows exactly what kind of movie it is and goes for it with giddy abandon.

Review by Matt Zoller Seitz
A "Reservoir Dogs" knockoff 25 years after "Reservoir Dogs."
Review by Simon Abrams
The film doesn't offer anything new, and doesn't stop pushing Family until even the cutest animal seems to be lecturing you to listen to your parents.
Review by Glenn Kenny
The movie is drenched in production value and replete with ravishing shots of sunrises and sunsets, but it's in the scenes of fleeing, of battle, and of horrendous loss that The Promise is at its most effective.
Review by Godfrey Cheshire
A serious, sharply mounted drama that gets more engrossing as it moves along.
Review by Nick Allen
"Tramps"' attitude to be short and sweet proves definitive, vital.
Review by Brian Tallerico
At one point, someone says "This story is crazy enough for three books!" Which makes it both too much and not quite enough for one film.
The biggest problems with Sand Castle are familiarity and form (or lack thereof).
The film's charms are substantial, but what makes Slack Bay so original and enticing is also what makes it fairly alienating.
Olli concludes that all he needs is love. A lesson for our time? I can only hope.
Review by Sheila O'Malley
What Jenkins does, and does so powerfully, is show that there is no such thing as an isolated incident.
Review by Peter Sobczynski
An utterly lifeless and profoundly unoriginal animated effort that is desperately lacking the very thing in its title.
This is Sandler's first actual Netflix performance. It's in a film that still sucks.
