    It could be argued that this movie's callousness toward human life is nihilistic and nasty. But Woo takes everything so absurdly far that audiences laugh at what horrified them moments before. [27Jun1997 Pg01.D]

    Fans will appreciate not only that the film is predictably solid and surprisingly sharp but that parts of it are just plain bad.

    Director Dominik Moll knows how to make a gruesome-free thriller and even manages some dark laughs as he turns the screws.

    Thinking isn't going to do anyone a bit of good during Blue Streak. Turn off your brain instead and you might enjoy it.

    Uneven, amateurish and borderline misogynistic. But it's also very funny, and it never loses its cool.

    By emphasizing surreal humor and fast-paced action instead, Rodriguez has crafted a prepubescent version of James Bond without aping that series' style.

    The economical, fast-paced style and creepy mood are reminiscent of "The Twilight Zone."

    Snake Eyes sports some of the most breathtaking filmmaking of De Palma's career -- and Nicolas Cage is the one actor who cannot be upstaged by it. [18 September 1998, p. 11E]

    The low-key approach probably gets closer to the soul of Leonard, but it lacks zip. As a result, Out of Sight sometimes runs out of gas.

    The action scenes in Vertical Limit take cliffhanging to the highest peaks of excitement. It's a shame the story keeps dragging us down to sea level.

    Best to wait until the movie makes it to TV - where its missteps will loom less large.

    This surprisingly sentimental science-fiction thriller boasts enough fresh twists to satisfy time-travel junkies.

    A curious but intriguing movie that leaves you bemused and more than a little confused.

    The computer animation of the monsters here is a herky-jerky cartoon blur that is anything but scary.

    Not since Demi Moore lived happily ever after in "The Scarlet Letter" has a filmmaker felt so free to fudge a famous plot.

    Allen Daviau's cinematography is so striking that the movie would probably play better with the sound off.

    The movie is something of a white elephant itself, a luxuriant, lumbering behemoth. It is pleasant, occasionally amusing - and often dull.

    Cronenberg can create alternative worlds like few other filmmakers, and that's a real achievement. If he learns to make us care about them, he'll really have something. [23 April 1999, Life, p.8E]

    It is a measure of the movie's lack of inspiration that William Shatner is the funniest thing in it.

    The script, based on a novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, is deeply dumb, depressingly derivative (ripping off "Planet of the Apes" the most) and just plain nonsense.
