This Week at the Movies, Part 2 (Apr. 5-7, 2013)

Because of embargoes (those happy little restrictions on when critics can post reviews, good or bad), a lot of our critics aren’t able to share links with you until release day. Here are some last-minute reviews for this weekend’s upcoming films. We’ve kept in all the reviews posted yesterday as well so you can have more help in deciding what to see (if you haven’t already).

Our critics have been hard at work reviewing the latest films. Here is a look at what’s coming out this weekend (in select cities, check your local listings) and what else may be in theaters right now.

A Fierce Green Fire

Kenneth R. Morefield @ 1More Film Blog

The Four

Peter Nellhaus @ Coffee Coffee and more Coffee

  • Excerpt: What did impress me was the opening shot, a bird’s eye view of the city where the action takes place.

The Great Hip Hop Hoax

Thale

Jamie S. Rich @ Oregon Live

2011 Films

Down the Shore

Luke Bonanno @ DVDizzy.com

  • Excerpt: Between its dreary atmosphere and lack of a gripping, easily-described plot, Down the Shore is not a film that will really attract and excite viewers. But though slow and shrewdly structured, it’s a competently made little drama you won’t regret giving 90 minutes of your time.
