Match Point Reviews

Jim Lane
Sacramento News & Review

It all looks suspiciously like the kind of movie Allen used to make fun of 30 years ago.

A sexy, mysterious departure for Allen.

Woody‚(TM)s best for ages. Even for non-Allen fans this has all the appeal of a good story well told and capped with a deliciously vicious little twist.

SA Movie & DVD Magazine

Lugubriously slow and inert, Match Point simply drags without those customary Woody Allen one-liners . . .

James Kendrick
Q Network Film Desk

Contains enough surprises to keep it interesting and enough emotional and existential hand-wringing to make it worth talking about once the credits have rolled.

Like Woody himself, blessedly old fashioned craft for craft's sake.

Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

It's a classy, enjoyable, sometimes uncomfortable working of the writer/director's neuroses. But it's repackaged familiarity.

Woody Allen has had a cinematic shower and come out refreshed with Match Point, abandoning his beloved New York for London's grey skies and unique social structure, picking up a new beat %u2013 both musically and metaphorically.

Allen uses the change of scenery to his advantage.

Cinema em Cena

Aos 70 anos de idade e j no seu 34 filme, Allen ainda capaz de realizar um trabalho cheio de energia e (o mais fascinante) no hesita em reinventar-se.

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

There were few films in 2005 that I awaited with as much anticipation as Match Point, and none that I found to be more of a crashing disappointment.

NYC Film Critic

Fits squarely into [Allen's] second-tier pantheon.

Philip Martin
Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

Without the director's credit, one could mistake the immaculately plotted Match Point for an Anglicized Krzysztof Kieslowski script or remade Hitchcock...

Reel Times: Reflections on Cinema

Match Point is not a declaration of the value of firm belief--it denounces theodicy, after all--but a caution against the outright rejection of it.

Bob Bloom
Journal and Courier (Lafayette, IN)

This is Allen's most perceptive, adult and finest work in years. It is as if filming in and around London rejuvenated his creative juices.

Advocate (Baton Rouge, LA)

The characters' sundry fates never become a great concern, leaving the viewer, more or less, adrift in indifference.

In leaving America, Woody Allen has, at long last, put himself back on the map.

Match Point achieves an almost Shakespearean effect.

Boulder Weekly

Though Allen's English trip brings a tasty change of place, he's also dragged along some familiar baggage ... As the film plays on, wry romance loses out to a crime drama that hangs on a gimmicky plot spin.
