Rave Reviews For Cherrybomb, Wild Target – Plus Vote For Rupert Grint!

Rave Reviews For Cherrybomb, Wild Target – Plus Vote For Rupert Grint!September 14th, 2010, 5:01pm–It may have seemed like rave reviews for Rupert Grint‘s non-Potter movies Cherrybomb and Wild Target stopped coming in, but with the diligence of several fans and staffer Anna‘s translation of French reviews for Wild Target, we have several to bring to you – some praising Rupert so much, you’ll be grinning from ear to ear! You can read some below!

Cherrybomb catches the audience as a clever bit of cinema between drama and thriller. Especially with its first-class trio of young actors in which Grint scintillates as a veteran of acting.
A successful change of image.
Conclusion: Well done teen thriller starring grown up Potter-sidekick Grint”

You can read the rest of the Cherrybomb reviews, starting with Attitude Magazine, here at our Rave Reviews site (which recently got its own domain).

“As much as I’m sad to see one of the great franchises, Harry Potter (with the exception of the first two films, which sucked, rot in hell, Chris Columbus) come to a close, it’s really nice to see Rupert Grint free to work on other projects…”

You can read the rest of this Wild Target review and the 6 other ones – starting with Suite 101 – posted here.

In other news, Portrait Magazine has a new poll out listing the most beautiful actors. Rupert is currently very low on the list as we have just learned about it, so please vote for him here. You can also vote for Rupert as the best dressed here with Glamour Magazine!

Thanks Melina, Kathy, Anna and Holly!
