Match Point is airless, repetitive.

Match Point is a perfectly presentable, entirely unremarkable domestic melodrama parked queasily between opera and realism, two irreconcilable forms if ever there were.

August 30, 2009
Allen merely regurgitates his shrunken vision in veddy-British padding
December 25, 2005
The same bland, lazy filmmaking Allen's been doing for years, only without the humor and with different accents.

December 6, 2005
A dreary regurgitation of prior (better) Allen efforts dressed up in a stolid British suit.

May 12, 2006
It all looks suspiciously like the kind of movie Allen used to make fun of 30 years ago.

December 29, 2005
Painful as it is for Woody Allen fans to accept, it must now be said out loud (not just whispered in dark corners). Woody Allen can not write for 20-somethings.

April 29, 2009
A limp, dull, and contrived rehash of "Crimes and MisDemeanors"...
January 20, 2006
Match Point crafts the beginning of a better than average fish-out-of-water tale, bores us for an hour with a milquetoast affair, then gives us a wild sucker punch of an ending that even a Nostradamus / John Edward tag team couldn't predict.
January 3, 2006
Allen fans would be well advised to stay away lest their idea of Allen's genius become ever so slightly dented.
| Original Score: 1/5
January 13, 2006
Match Point may be Allen's best film in years, but the disastrous casting of Rhys-Myers makes it another disappointment.

December 24, 2005
Hard to believe that someone as seasoned and creative as Woody Allen would have to resort to the cliche -- a gun -- to dramatically solve the predicament of his antihero.

December 28, 2005
A movie with no heart or soul.
January 17, 2006
Allen develops characters and situations here as if he had jotted the major points down on the back of an envelope and then used the envelope as his shooting script. The movie is so thin-textured it's ludicrous.
December 28, 2005
Crushingly humorless, Match Point also has a grade-school-simple Major Theme: At the outset, Chris's narration informs us that life is luck, and at any point we could win or lose. Whoa.
January 6, 2006
What begins as a directorial fresh start becomes a statement of misanthropy that isn't artistically insightful so much as it's resolute.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 7, 2006
Woody Allen's treatise on luck vs. good never approaches the net much less produces an ace.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
October 30, 2006
A filmmaker out of touch with his own neuroses, making a final bid for recognition by exacerbating lives beyond his reach.
December 5, 2005
Woody's most baldly revealing picture, a reprehensible and misogynist pseudo-thriller that is also aesthetically polished and compulsively watchable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
