Matt E (de) wrote: Not much happens, but I had a smile one face the whole time. A serviceable buddy road comedy.

Michael M (ru) wrote: Starts out so well, very interesting turn about three quarters of the way through, but then it goes nowhere.

Paul P (ca) wrote: Watching this film left me asking one question.... Why is Kristen Bell not a bigger star? This is a pretty terrific indie drama that is anchored by a wonderful performance by Bell. The film itself is a little light in places but overall this is great..

Marla K (de) wrote: A charming, funny, and touching "romcom." Saw it at the St. Louis International Film Festival...was submitted by Sweden as its Academy Award nominee for foreign film last year but didn't make it...comedies never get the respect they deserve! Rent it if you see it on Netflix!

Luc M (ca) wrote: A good movie with some funny scenes, action scenes found through weak, has a history until interesting, but the film itself has nothing very special, but what I hated most in the film was the appearance of Hawkeye, it just appeared to show the public that it exists, but he did nothing, they could have used a lot more character.

Kyle L (de) wrote: overall it was very good

Anthony L (ag) wrote: The first "proper" sequel to the great Dracula (USA Horror of Dracula) produced by Hammer, though its one of the better movies in the series it still pales in comparison to the mighty original (the thrilling conclusion of which provides this film's first few minutes)... Christopher Lee takes up the cape and Fangs for the second time but has apparently lost his voice and has to resort to mime and gurns but still manages to be effective none the less... Its a shame Lee doesn't get to speak, its that mix of proper speaking and animal stalking that gives the character a real sense of danger! though he regains speach by "Dracula has risen from the grave", despite this much discussed element of Prince of darkness we still have a stellar sequel (if we can call it that) with plenty of stoking imagery and some great shocks and thrills, plenty of gothic camp... Highlights include Dracula's ressurection and icey demise!

Benjamin N (nl) wrote: As usual, Hitchcock doesn't disappoint. This is one very, very strange black comedy romance entanglement.

Victor M (fr) wrote: A must see for cinema lovers, a classic of the gangster film with outstanding performance of James Cagney and Pat O'Brien.

Ricardo H (kr) wrote: Not a bad movie although I didn't think it was consistently good throughout. There were some really good parts and some that I found extremely cheesy. However, the premise was quite interesting

Bob R (us) wrote: crass, turgid hopeless mess of a 'comedy'

Sheppard S (fr) wrote: One of my lang standing fantasies: a pretty woman stalked by a hungry vampire...Heck, any vampire would chase Milano!

Djordan F (gb) wrote: to bom quanto o 2, so as mortes que so ruins so muito fracas como atropelamento,e estrangulamento bem diferente dos outros filme que tem at empalamento por um cano
