    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    Woody Allen's best movie in years means to trip us up: Sexual sizzle. London instead of Manhattan. Brit actors. Dark humor with a sting that leaves welts. You bet it's a change. And it looks good on the Woodman. show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Allen's most satisfying film since "Bullets Over Broadway" (1994) and his most compelling since "Crimes and Misdemeanors" (1989). show more

    Proof that Allen, who many have dismissed with his last few forgettable films, is still a filmmaking force. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    The movie wears thin as its style turns from light parody into affectation, and the plot, which certainly generates lots of anxiety, eventually settles for facile irony. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Whether it's simply the change of locale, or a change in Allen's psyche, something is up in Match Point. With a dark view of humankind, and of the vagaries of chance - bad luck, good luck, dumb luck - the filmmaker has crafted a wicked, winning gem. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    What fans want are good movies. This one isn't particularly funny or romantic, but it's gripping and tragic. It asks some nasty, yet profound, questions about human desire and behavior. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    Switching into a dramatic gear, Woody Allen surprises but often struggles in this dark morality tale. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    One reason for the fascination of Woody Allen's Match Point is that each and every character is rotten. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Match Point begins to recall Hitchcock as it unfolds, although it wouldn't be right to call it a thriller. This is still very much a Woody Allen movie, populated by upper-class characters who chatter about literature and fine art, frequent museums and designer boutiques and accidentally run into each other on the street with uncanny regularity. show more

    New York Post

    Its many pleasures derive from the way this drama unfolds unexpectedly from the characters rather than imposing itself on them. show more
