Movie Reviews

“Samuel’s two biggest influences seem to be Leone and Tarantino, which makes for a very style-forward presentation, sometimes at the expense of a clean, straightforward story (it’s unnecessarily complicated)” Peter Debruge: Variety

“If looking cool were enough to make a movie great (…) The Harder They Fall would be the best movie of the year (…) But this picture works so hard at entertaining us that it strips its own gears”· Stephanie Zacharek: Time 

“Samuels has cooked up a fun, slick, and suave Black-centric narrative that has as much in common with the likes of Carmen Jones as it does the Spaghetti Westerns and Tarantino films it riffs off.” Hanna Ines Flint: IGN
