    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.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    So uplifting, it's almost...gross.

    The ludicrous casting of Hoffman is just the fatal bit of kindling on this Joan's fire.
    • 67 Metascore

    The efficiency of his (Donaldson) direction renders the movie somewhat characterless, like a top-rank made-for-TV production.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    Unfocused. We feel cut adrift amid the various plot threads. This is exacerbated by some murky exposition. Characters, events, and the passage of time are not always clearly established.

    It's pretty good fun, once it gets going, but still makes some of the same mistakes that have plagued other Hollywood films that interpolate the concepts of Hong Kong action.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    In the end, it's all just too damned much. It's more exhausting than edifying.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    Condensing, paring and shorthanding the story elements can be daunting, and, despite the efforts of Kasdan and Goldman, two masters at wrangling unwieldy source material into shape, there is some awkwardness and confusion in the result.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    Generally engaging.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    The various talents on display aren't enough to overcome the sheer blandness of the material.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    It's perfectly effective, though only rarely inspired.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    Jones seems to have trouble keeping up with the large amount of action he's required to participate in. And Del Toro seems ill-cast and ill-used.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    It's nothing more than a very long movie about someone, literally and metaphorically, having to get back up on a horse.

    Brosnan proved his worth last time around; but, sad to say, the rest of Tomorrow Never Dies lacks the wit and inventiveness of GoldenEye, let alone of Goldfinger.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 40 Andy Klein
    A mostly well-constructed action flick with a number of flashy, well-choreographed fight and chase scenes.

    The film looks great, but Wargnier is so heavy-handed in his portrayal of postwar Russia that it casts suspicions on the film's reliability as history.
