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.

It all looks suspiciously like the kind of movie Allen used to make fun of 30 years ago.

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.

Lugubriously slow and inert, Match Point simply drags without those customary Woody Allen one-liners . . .

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.

Woody Allen has had a cinematic shower and come out refreshed with Match Point, abandoning his beloved New York for London's grey skies and unique social structure, picking up a new beat %u2013 both musically and metaphorically.

Allen uses the change of scenery to his advantage.

Aos 70 anos de idade e j no seu 34 filme, Allen ainda capaz de realizar um trabalho cheio de energia e (o mais fascinante) no hesita em reinventar-se.

There were few films in 2005 that I awaited with as much anticipation as Match Point, and none that I found to be more of a crashing disappointment.

Fits squarely into [Allen's] second-tier pantheon.

Without the director's credit, one could mistake the immaculately plotted Match Point for an Anglicized Krzysztof Kieslowski script or remade Hitchcock...
| Original Score: 93/100

Match Point is not a declaration of the value of firm belief--it denounces theodicy, after all--but a caution against the outright rejection of it.

This is Allen's most perceptive, adult and finest work in years. It is as if filming in and around London rejuvenated his creative juices.

The characters' sundry fates never become a great concern, leaving the viewer, more or less, adrift in indifference.

In leaving America, Woody Allen has, at long last, put himself back on the map.

Match Point achieves an almost Shakespearean effect.
