September 26, 2017
His first film set in London, it boasts a young, pretty, something-for-everyone cast. As enter-tainment, however, it just slams limply into the net every time.
August 8, 2017
Woody Allen's freshest and most potent film in years manages to be much more than an erotic thriller.
April 7, 2016 of the venerable writer/director's more accomplished efforts in this new century.

September 14, 2013
But, perhaps, the greatest parallel between Woody's Match Point and Hitch is duality. It's a brilliant device.

September 19, 2010
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
August 19, 2010
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
April 29, 2009
A limp, dull, and contrived rehash of "Crimes and MisDemeanors"...
February 28, 2008
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.

September 12, 2007
... 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.
January 20, 2007
Extremely disappointing.
January 19, 2007
The acting is as impeccable as Remi Adefarasin's lensing is gorgeous.

December 13, 2006
This is Allen at his best. And with three Oscars at home already, and seventeen other nominations, that is saying a lot.

November 11, 2006
His most absorbing picture in years.
November 4, 2006
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.
October 30, 2006
A filmmaker out of touch with his own neuroses, making a final bid for recognition by exacerbating lives beyond his reach.
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.
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.
