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.

Opening: Apr. 17-19, 2015

[New Today] Kristin Dreyer Kramer @ NightsAndWeekends.com

Child 44

[New Today] Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
[New Today] Mark Dujsik @ Mark Reviews Movies

Stefan Pape @ HeyUGuys

The Dead Lands

[New Today] Nicholas Bell @ Ioncinema
[New Today] Stacia Kissick Jones @ Next Projection
Carson Lund @ Slant Magazine

  • Excerpt: The reality is that The Dead Lands is nothing more than a phony collection of storytelling clichés held under the banner of archetype and lent a modicum of weight by the splendor of the landscape and the detail of the face-paint jobs. Essentially, the Maoris remain unrepresented.
