Critic Reviews for That's the Way of the World

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

If I chose to write a review of That's the Way of the World the length of which accurately reflected the duration of its star attraction Earth, Wind & Fire, I should have stopped writing two clauses ago.

Predictable stuff really, and boringly so.

November 21, 2019 | Full Review…

World has much to share on the topic of corruption and the burn of self-preservation, articulated with a wonderfully combative atmosphere and a distinct groove.

February 28, 2014 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

It's a movie that could have been made thirty years earlier or thirty years later without losing an ounce of its relevancy.
