    Were it not for the gravity of the setting, the movie could just as easily be a comedy -- with everybody play-acting and doors opening and shutting and the repercussions of lies multiplying geometrically -- as a drama.

    Helgeland makes a solid debut as director here, finding a new angle through which to view the Parker character, and doing so without exhausting the possibilities.

    It's unlikely that anyone will be bored. But it's just as unlikely that anyone will be swept off his feet either.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's an interesting, often worthwhile, film, but humor isn't its strongest attribute.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Scrappy, sappy, and appealing.

    While there's nothing original in Rush Hour, it runs through its well-worn paces with both wit and excitement.

    If you don't view it too analytically, Men of Honor provides almost more uplift than a body can handle.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Makes good use of its actors.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    What Malick has fashioned here is less a conventional narrative than an impressionistic mosaic of our common, yet varied experience of life and death, as focused and clarified through the relentless lens of war.

    • 70 Andy Klein
    The repetitious structure begins to grow wearing about two-thirds through, but the conclusion has an emotional wallop that justifies the wait.
    • 73 Metascore

    Bigger, Longer & Uncut delivers: It's never less than funny, and at its best, it's truly hysterical.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's a fast, entertaining ride.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It is a moving and solidly entertaining comedy/drama that should bolster director and co-writer Juan José Campanella's reputation in the United States.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's hard not to warm to a film that features William Shatner (playing himself) looking at De Niro's character and complaining about what a lousy actor he is.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Solidly entertaining little film.
    • New Times (L.A.)
    • 72 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    The film's demands may be too perplexing.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    If the performances are the prime reason the film is as engaging as it is, it must also be said that Majidi's visual style seems far more sophisticated than in "Children of Heaven."

    It's funny and exciting on enough levels that adults are likely to enjoy it just as much as the rug rats.

    For most people, four hours pushes the outer comfort limits for theatrical viewing. My Voyage to Italy is well worth the time, but bringing along a thermos of espresso isn't a bad idea either.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Dominik's stylistic choices are savvy, but what really makes the movie work is Bana's extraordinary performance as Chopper.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    In short, the film is emotional, perhaps even sentimental, but it strenuously avoids the sort of blatant manipulation that marks cheap sentimentality.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Klein
    The efficiency of his (Donaldson) direction renders the movie somewhat characterless, like a top-rank made-for-TV production.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    It's a strange, entertaining little film that derives its weird tension from a blend of comic and serious tones.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Rea hits just the right balance of sympathy and self-interest.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    As satisfying as much of the film is, there are a few missteps, large and small, that may require indulgence on the part of viewers.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    For all of the heroine's shockingly "modern" lifestyle choices, the thrust of the film is remarkably old-fashioned. It embraces the notion that you can have only a single great love in a lifetime...and that's if you're lucky.

    • 70 Andy Klein
    Allen produces a lovable, relaxed--although not uproarious--comedy.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    A political film in the form of a thriller, rather than a garden-variety potboiler gleefully helping itself to stock political tropes from the genre's grab bag.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    Eureka is, quite extraordinarily, never dull.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Andy Klein
    O'Connor as Fanny is irresistibly appealing.
