    The film keeps its good-evil borders compellingly supple, at least until a wobbly finale that requires Sarah to act like the Hollywood heroine she has so strenuously avoided becoming. It’s a minor blot on a film otherwise propulsively alive with prickly politics.

    Ultimately story is secondary to Russell’s delicious detailing of character and milieu.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    The thrills and the effects are cheap, but this is in hard-driving, good-humoured command of its own silliness.

    Don’t tell Liam Neeson, but someone had the gall to make a violent Euro-thriller about a rampaging American dad without him. And not a bad one either.

    It’s a broader, starrier project than either of Nichols’s previous films, and he handles the transition to the major league with relative confidence.

    There’s typical grace and good humour in Kore-eda’s handling of this all-but-impossible situation. But the film’s critical lack of dramatic nuance undercuts its emotional resonance.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    Its repetitive qualities are beyond reproach. Every bit as amiable and disposable as its predecessor, it recycles everything from slapstick gags to its own voice cast.

    [An] amiable but flat-footed debut feature.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    It’s all extravagantly daft, moves at a fair clip and is over before you expect it to be.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    There’s enjoyably smutty comedy to spare... but the film’s bleakest segments are actually its strongest.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Guy Lodge
    It’s as handsomely shot as any film about an ace shutterbug ought to be, and Binoche infuses familiar internal crises with palpable pain and urgency.
    • 77 Metascore
    • 40 Guy Lodge
    If the final effect is somewhat less nuanced than his previous work, it's a good deal more vigorous.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Guy Lodge
    It’s a testament to the duo’s jazzy comic chemistry that they wring some laughs from this dated, frankly sinister premise.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 40 Guy Lodge
    This turgid return papers over the previous film’s narrative, but creates little in the way of a fresh character arc.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Guy Lodge
    At least Cameron Diaz gives it some welly as the gold-toothed femme fatale who may or may not hold all the cards.

    Given an inch by the surprise success of his raunchy teddy-bear romp Ted, writer-director-star MacFarlane now takes a drastically overlong mile with a film that flatters his moderate talent and subzero leading-man charisma at every turn.
