Movie Reviews

Reviews:
"Distinctive and amusing turns by Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali make Peter Farrelly’s first solo feature outing a lively and likable diversion." - 09/11/2018 Hollywood Reporter


"Mortensen’s role may be the showier of the two, but Ali is a marvel to watch in his musical performances." - 09/11/2018 Variety


3 stars out of 4 -- "It’s glossy and zippy, gliding along the surface of deeply emotional, complex issues while dipping down into them just enough to give us a taste of some actual substance....And its enjoyability comes almost completely from its starring performances from an excellent Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali." - 11/16/2018 RogerEbert.com


"GREEN BOOK is a savvy and super effective piece of popular entertainment....With superior acting by two of today’s top actors -- Viggo Mortensen and Mahershala Ali..." - 11/15/2018 Los Angeles Times


"Ali, more or less the straight man in the double act, approaches every moment with a razor-fine wit, a lively awareness of the absurdity of the situation that may not belong to the character alone." - 11/15/2018 New York Times


"As an inspiring and thoroughly entertaining chapter drawn from all-too-real life, it mixes authenticity and Hollywood schmaltz with ease that feels both relaxed and judiciously calibrated." - 11/14/2018 Washington Post


4 stars out of 5 -- "Ali, a Best Supporting Actor Oscar winner for MOONLIGHT, is superb at finding the buried rage in a refined artist challenging fellow Americans who never accepted the abolition of slavery." - 11/12/2018 Rolling Stone


"The dynamic is legitimately funny at times, softening us up at a moment when there’s a desperate need to see and feel harmony in the world..." - 11/01/2018 Film Comment


4 stars out of 5 -- "Ali plays the straight man to Mortensen’s wild card with controlled assurance." - 07/27/2019 Total Film


4 stars out 5 -- "What makes the film so compelling is the chemistry that crackles from the central pair of actors." - 01/28/2019 Empire
