    This is quintessential "family entertainment."

    It doesn't have enough power in the first place to make a strong claim on our attentions.

    Doesn't show us much of anything we haven't seen better already.

    Abandon all hopes of common sense, and enter the theater with high expectations for visceral entertainment. You won't be disappointed.

    It's hard to know just how much to trust Titanic Town.

    It's unlikely that anyone will walk away unmoved.

    Lee's pace is slow enough to try viewers' patience.

    Ninety percent of this thriller is absolutely terrific; but the 10 percent that fails is so troubling that it threatens to undermine all that is wonderful in the rest.

    Its greatest flaw is the casting of Miller ("Trainspotting," "Hackers"), who continues to have virtually no screen presence...For all that, Plunkett & Macleane is fun.

    Nobody can convey more while doing nothing than Thornton. And while his minimalist style is appropriate for the ironically named Levity, what is conveyed never quite generates the emotional charge of "Monster's Ball."

    Two minor drawbacks: Onscreen IDs of speakers are sometimes omitted. And Kissinger's crimes seem almost paltry in comparison to current American policies.

    What's most disappointing is the almost utter lack of humor -- In the mindless action sweepstakes, however, there's still enough here to place The Transporter above big-bang gibberish like XXX.

    But by the end the audience, along with Clayton, has been jerked around so many times that it's almost too exhausting...By then, it's almost impossible to care.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    Handily in a league with its predecessor...as good a follow-up as one can imagine, given the built-in difficulties of sequels.

    Despite the few good performances, this Hamlet is not a keeper.

    Cube is essentially a glossy, beautifully designed 90-minute Twilight Zone episode.

    Kay doesn't seem to know the meaning of moderation.

    In the end, the performances and the basic strength of the premise make Shadow of the Vampire a relatively diverting ninety minutes. But there is the inescapable feeling that it is a shadow of the great film it might have been.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    By the end, we simply have no idea what he (Lee) feels or what the film is really about. And we are too worn out to care.

    Worth watching.

    Generally engaging.

    Pretty hysterical.

    While it's crucial to preserve and make available every bit of available footage of such an earth-shattering event, it must be said that Rosenbaum's film manages to become slack and uninvolving after a while.

    Festival in Cannes is an amused indictment of Jaglom's own profession; he doesn't seem to be making excuses for anybody's compromised (or even downright immoral) behavior here.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    Nowhere near as bad as distributor New Line seems to think.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    The texture is reminiscent of last year's "Suzhou River," but the basic material isn't as rich.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    Will probably please hard-core action fans who have become inured to plot idiocies, but it remains a terrible waste of talent.
    • 63 Metascore

    Star Jeremy Renner seems shorter than Dahmer, but is otherwise a look-alike and gives a convincingly intense and weird performance. Bruce Davison (as Papa Dahmer) and the rest of the cast also do nice work.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    While the movie tries to make the connection between the rough but sensitive lad we see on screen and the notorious carouser of later years, there's little here to suggest whatever torment led Behan to drunkenness and an absurdly early death at 41.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 60 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Klein
    Filled with sharp observations and interesting, often subtle, bits of visual trickery, much of it evoking the technique of Douglas Sirk's American domestic melodramas. Still, the very simple story seems too simple and the working out of the plot almost arbitrary.
