    May well stand as his (Chan) final word on true martial arts cinema.

    I found myself roaring at the grotesque way some of the characters talk to their pets, pausing only briefly when I realized that I do precisely the same thing.

    Zemeckis is more interested here in getting us thinking (and feeling) than in telling us what to think.

    Casting is perfect all down the line.

    Compellingly watchable.

    Scrappy, sappy, and appealing.

    Greenwood gives a nuanced performance that may be the film's best work, but at times his surface dissimilarities to JFK are jarring.

    It’s Del Toro who really gets to strut his stuff with a subtle, ambiguous, and riveting performance. In a field of top-notch actors, he’s the one whom you remember days later.

    Pretty hysterical.

    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.

    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.

    Belongs somewhere in the low middle of Altman's output -- not up to "Cookie's Fortune," but way better than, say, "Beyond Therapy," which remains his worst film by some margin.

    It more or less makes sense and it's not dull -- more than can be said for many similar attempts.

    There are lots of elements that make no sense whatever.

    Middlebrow art has its built-in pitfalls, not the least of them sentimentality and intellectual flabbiness -- both of which are in abundant supply in Bagger Vance.

    In terms of cleverly hidden exposition, this ain't "The Sixth Sense."

    I can’t imagine why anyone would plunge ahead with this project -- an adaptation of a classic no one reads, about characters no one could care about, directed by a filmmaker of little talent and less success.

    This is as close to a total wipeout as can be imagined.

    An uninspired, standard-issue mimeo whose only distinguishing feature is a reversal in its casting.

    Inert, unfunny, and not even interesting as a dirty movie, 8 1/2 Women could well rank as one of the worst films of the year.

    In the real audience with which I watched it, the only laughs were from kids under eight or nine, mostly at hilarious "hooter" jokes.
