Movie Reviews

  • what “Palmer” is, in every sense of the word, is decent. It's familiar, and predictable, and a little bit hokey. But it’s also genuinely moving and surprisingly memorable, thanks to its two leads
    by Elizabeth Weitzman [The Wrap ]
  • the singer-cum-actor doesn't have quite enough gravitas to lift a predictable story of an ex-convict forced to look after a kid
    2 of 5 by Benjamin Lee [The Guardian ]
  • the plot is predictable but well-measured, the characters are familiar but full of life; “Palmer” isn't exactly high art, but it's no small feat for something so predictable to avoid feeling dishonest
    Review rate : B- by David Ehrlich [IndieWire ]
  • take out a few "gritty" details that account for the film's R rating, and “Palmer” is formulaic enough to pass for a faith-based movie
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • Justin Timberlake successfully stretches in a mostly formulaic drama; Guerriero's script shows admirable restraint in letting us draw our own comparisons between the plight of the felon and the gender nonconformist
    by John DeFore [The Hollywood Reporter ]
  • Justin Timberlake is a bit stoic and monotone in his performance, but the movie's bright outlook outweighs its muddled execution. It has a lot of heart, and heart matters
    Review rate : B- by Adam Graham [Detroit News ]
  • in "Palmer," Justin Timberlake gives one of the best performances of his career; the messaging is so earnest and the performances are so heartfelt; Young Ryder Allen is amazingly good at playing Sam, whose spirit and goodness will break your heart
    3 of 4 by Richard Roeper [Chicago Sun-Times ]
  • a tender, earnest tale of how love and nurturing can truly change lives; "Palmer" effectively pulls at the heartstrings, and it's a lovely meditation on the unexpected bonds we form and the healing they can provide
    Review rate : B by Maureen Lee Lenker [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • "Palmer" isn't a bad movie. It's decent, in more ways than one, with its heart in the right place and a couple of moving moments
    by Bilge Ebiri [Vulture ]
  • "Palmer" derives a quiet strength from its performances and the narrative arc of the title character; Directed by actor and documentarian Fisher Stevens, "Palmer" certainly doesn't break any ground, but its simple story is sensitively told
    by Brian Lowry [CNN ]
