It's fun, clever and a great kick-off to the summer movie season.

Review by Simon Abrams
The action choreography is exciting, the operatic plot is compelling, and there's a genuine sense of optimism that undercuts the gouts of blood and thunderous sound effects.
Review by Glenn Kenny
The wisdom of this meticulously crafted film is in its genuine irony, which amplifies steadily throughout until culminating in a moment of real heartbreak that, ironically enough, only sets the stage for a cycle of deceit to begin again.
Review by Godfrey Cheshire
Risk is another fascinating piece of cinema-as-history that reminds us that Laura Poitras remains one of our most original, courageous and valuable filmmakers.
The result is a film that's often infuriating, one that works in fits and starts but ultimately fails.
Review by Sheila O'Malley
With an extremely funny script by Mike Makowsky, Take Me rides the waves of a simulation scenario gone haywire.
Review by Christy Lemire
A movie can mean well but not necessarily work well.
He was a real artist and, especially if you believe that art is all about asking questions, about life and about art, he was a great one.
The movie is never uninteresting but is often surprisingly low-energy and, even more surprisingly, visually drab.
Chuck does nothing new, and it moves through boxing tropes like it's ticking off checkmarks, but there's an honesty to it, a fresh and messy one.
Even the movie's refreshingly atypical focus on character-driven neuroses over pat post-Poltergeist-style jump-scares can't save Another Evil from its creators' lack of ideas
Review by Vikram Murthi
An unflinching depiction of life in a vulnerable city, a place where innocents are constantly under attack, and the few people doing their best to protect it.
Review by Matt Zoller Seitz
This record of Roger Gueneveur Smith's one-man show is a film of provocations.
A high tech thriller with plenty of tech and not enough thrills.
