While only at 9 reviews, its currently at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Harry Knowles raved about it on AICN too.

I bet the producers of the new Superman movie are kicking themselves right now for not thinking of doing something like that. It would be lame if they copied it.

Not to be an ass but wtf matters when it comes to Knowles? He raves about a lot of stuff even when it's shit.

He didn't like Inception or Minority Report, loved the remake of A Nightmare on Elm Street.

I don't see why people complain about Harry, he's just another guy with an opinion

For me it's the fact he's kept that ugly interface, it offends me.

Since Knowles is a fat, worthless fuck; the film is now sitting on Rotten Tomatoes at 88% after 33 reviews.

Better?

Knowles is a whore. He'll pump up anything so long as the studios give him a taste of the pie. I'm amazed his site is still in business.

Aintitcool has got a great new contributor in Muldoon. Harry's reviews aren't the strong points of that site, but they have some great stuff from time to time. Like I've said before, that 20 day 200 question and answer session with Sylvester Stallone was an incredible read.

I swear, Orndorf doesn't seem to enjoy movies at all. Why does someone like this review films? It's almost as confusing as that dolt Armond White.

The DVDTalk Critics have particular tastes, there generally isn't a huge "variation" in opinions on a single movie.

I'm surprised by the positive reviews. The trailer made it look like a mediocre January/February "dumping ground" kind of movie. Now I may actually check it out.

Really, really enjoyed this. I typically like the "generic" superhero movies (Push, Jumper, I Am Number 4), but this was the best of the bunch.

Quite a good movie, though it may have actually been better without the found footage angle.

I think this is one of the few movies to use the found footage conceit to good effect.
