April 7, 2016 of the venerable writer/director's more accomplished efforts in this new century.

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

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4

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.

Allen merely regurgitates his shrunken vision in veddy-British padding

A limp, dull, and contrived rehash of "Crimes and MisDemeanors"...

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.

... 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.

Extremely disappointing.

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

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

His most absorbing picture in years.

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.
Sky Hirschkron
Stylus Magazine
October 30, 2006
A filmmaker out of touch with his own neuroses, making a final bid for recognition by exacerbating lives beyond his reach.
Edward Lawrenson
Sight and Sound
September 28, 2006
The plotting lacks a necessary sense of tragic propulsion; it feels dutifully schematic, its ironies polite and tidy when they should be bitter and merciless.
Peter T. Chattaway
Christianity Today
September 27, 2006
By developing his characters so superficially, Allen makes it impossible to feel the depth of the horror that he is clearly aiming for.

Allen back in shape since a really long time

Game, set, match ... Allen wins with slow-moving English drama ...
