Mediocre comedy and the lamest act of war ever.

The Interview may have benefited in investing more energy in compiling a stronger supporting cast -- this would have at least allowed the humour to potentially branch out and find new gags that unfortunately weren't present.

The Interview is a forgettable comedy with an unforgettable advertising campaign, yet should still be seen for the amount of risks the filmmakers took to get it made at all.

It's ground zero for our current culture wars - not because it's a good movie, but because it is bad in an unexpectedly revealing way.

I would have willingly taken several strips of ricin myself to be spared a single extra minute of the terrible, gurning, prancing, toweringly irritating piece of idiot ham that is Franco.

The Interview in a nutshell: Half-baked and ultimately forgettable.

The Interview is gross and racist, and most of the time, it's not even funny.
April 25, 2017
The enormous expectation created by a stupid political controversy only generated a disappointing feeling in front of a comedy without depth. [Full review in Spanish]

Even the film's most ardent champions would likely concede that The Interview is a spectacularly weird film to end up at the center of a free speech brouhaha.

The Interview, conversely, is little more than a sloppy air kiss blown lazily under the banner of free speech.
August 20, 2015
The suffocating level of redundancy on display kneecaps any legitimate chance the film had at embracing social satire.
August 17, 2015
There has never been as silly and inconsequential a film that prompted as huge a political fuss as this.

Whether it lives up to its reputation as a banner for the rights of "artists" to fictionally assassinate a living head of state might be debatable. Whether it is truly funny, outrageous or touching is obvious: It is not.
August 17, 2015
But for those who want to see The Interview because their curiosity has been piqued, many will exit realizing that all the hubbub was much ado about nothing.
August 17, 2015
There's a good point to be made about how journalists can be co-opted by access to the powerful people they're supposed to be holding accountable. Unfortunately, Rogen and Goldberg aren't the filmmakers to make this point.
June 4, 2015
Demonstrates an abject carelessness which is more offensive than any other wrongdoing of which The Interview has been accused.
March 4, 2015
It's a workable premise, and the film delivers some scattered laughs in those moments when it can tear itself away from typically puerile and repetitive gags.
February 20, 2015
The final third of the film, which is directed by Rogen and Evan Goldberg, degenerates into a humourless and violent Rambo pastiche.
February 18, 2015
The Interview at its best is just intermittently amusing, with an obsession about the sanctity of bottoms. These boys need to stop clenching.
February 18, 2015
For every joke that works, there are five that don't.
