This is moviemaking on autopilot.

It's not a terrible movie, but all the way through you feel as if you've already seen it.

It's sadder and scarier than its predecessors, but it also may be the most important chapter in the tale.

The scenes of family conflict are sketchily dramatized. We never get to the place where the two parts of Sam's personality meet -- the devoted son and sharp-dealing criminal.

As a thriller, it's bubkes.

The tense dynamic between these two fine actors, not to mention Asch's confident feel for New York City circa the late-1990s, keeps this slightly undercooked but wholly engrossing melodrama on course.

We have seen this all before; from Jesse Eisenberg's trademark jitters and speedy speech to the inevitable tragic story arc and the morphing of smalltime dabbler to swaggering kingpin, undone by over-confidence. Oy vey.

An arrhythmic but very interesting film... [Full review in Spanish]

Holy Rollers' innocence-lost, you-can't-go-home-again arc is something of a clich, but the film remains refreshingly nonjudgmental about its hero's burgeoning criminal career.

The one and only problem I had with HOLY ROLLERS was the pacing. I found myself getting slightly bored and at times, looking at my watch. I'm sure it's not easy to mesh Orthodox Judaism and Ecstasy, but Asch did a pretty good job.
