HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • A-
    Drafthouse Films will release Ari Folman's stunning 'The Congress' in 2014, a partially animated science-fiction film about the nature of identity in the digital age starring Robin Wright, Jon Hamm, and Harvey Keitel, and we dig into this beautiful new film in our review.
  • D+
    The remake of 'Red Dawn' may have some strong charisma on its side thanks to the casting of Chris Hemsworth, Adrianne Palicki, and Josh Hutcherson, but poorly-shot action and a confused point-of-view end up hobbling it.
