Match Point Reviews

Tony Macklin

But, perhaps, the greatest parallel between Woody's Match Point and Hitch is duality. It's a brilliant device.

Nick Rogers

This lean, mean, surprisingly sultry thriller about fate, luck, greed and guilt is Woody Allen's best since "Mighty Aphrodite." Plus, it boasts a vintage-Allen metaphor of a bobbling tennis ball that, in a great gotcha scene, becomes a damning motif.

Cinema Writer

There's no ground here that Allen hasn't gone over before, but as a treatment of upper crust mores and, eventually, as a thriller, it's compulsively watchable and generally well acted.

Just when you were about to give up on Woody Allen, he reinvents himself with a taut tour de force of a film that is unquestionably the best thing he's done in decades.

Looking Closer

... retools the resolution of Crimes and Misdemeanors so its hero, instead of losing his grasp on morality, never even had a hold on morality in the first place.

Proves to be an intriguing enough adventure, provided you haven't seen Crimes and Misdemeanors and don't mind rooting for a despicable, amoral philanderer.

Match Point proves that Allen, at 70 years old, is very much still in the game.

The acting is as impeccable as Remi Adefarasin's lensing is gorgeous.

Nolan's Pop Culture Review

This is Allen at his best. And with three Oscars at home already, and seventeen other nominations, that is saying a lot.

What makes Match Point, a coolly deliberate murder mystery from Woody Allen, so startling is that it feels as if the director himself has been done away with.

Woody Allen regresa a su mejor forma con un oscuro drama sobre la ambición, el deseo, la obsesión, y el papel que juega la suerte en el destino de las personas.

Woodyâ(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.

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.

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