Critic Reviews

  • Sinks under the weight of its own pretensions. More...
  • The result isn't awful, but it is awfully familiar. When will someone make a film about being old, poor and ugly in Omaha? More...
  • It all comes off as faintly absurd. More...
  • It feels as shopworn as a dusty VHS tape of Less Than Zero. More...
  • Schumacher can't keep himself from the kind of vibey camera and editing flourishes that facilitate only viewer numbness... More...
  • Plays like a melodramatic rip-off of Bret Easton Ellis books about insufferable kids obsessed with money, drugs and themselves. More...
  • This movie's like an audiobook, accompanied by visuals from a 7-year-old copy of Vogue. More...
  • Joel Schumacher's 'Twelve,' from a much better 2002 novel by Nick McDonell, is a drag-ass slog. More...
  • Unlike the novel, the movie never really gets inside these kids, who aren't in the least all right. More...
  • This is half-baked Larry Clark treated as if it were Picasso's Guernica, which makes the few bright lights stand out all the more. More...

  • I enjoyed "Twelve" for some very superficial reasons. I am always drawn to films where characters intersect in random ways. Also, films about rich...
  • This is monumentally bad. Not only is it a terrible rendition of a great book, but it essentially says nothing at all. Joel Schumacher tries to bring...
  • The best thing about this teenage drug drama is the character development. All of the characters in the film are taken and measured down to a key...
  • Gossip Girl meets Limitless in this clever, fast-paced, independent drama by Joel Shumacher. The story follows Manhattan's elite teenage population...
  • The film was so so. It kind of felt like the movies Less Than Zero or Traffic, but those films were much better than this one. Kiefer Sutherland's...
  • Good for a teen drama about drugs, The voice-over narrative gets a little drawn out and monotonous, especially with Kiefer Sutherland's voice, but the...
