    Offers jaw-dropping visuals, but its troubling images of violence may cause this revolutionary effort to miss the evolutionary boat.

    To his (Snipes) credit, there are few other stars who could breathe a degree of credibility into a film like The Art of War.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Never makes the Jordans' tribulations feel like anything more than yuppie angst.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    An only fitfully engaging L.A. soap opera.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    There's less here than meets the eye, not to mention the ear, nose, tongue and fingertip.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    (Perry and Willis) are blown off the screen by Amanda Peet and Natasha Henstridge.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Little more than an electronic press kit for the band, produced for the benefit of its fans.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    At some point the foul language, lascivious sight gags, references to sex toys, violence against animals and cruelty toward children simply ceases to be funny.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    With a grating combination of naivete and arrogance, The Green Mile consistently overplays its melodramatic material, including a portrait of a black man that is as breathtakingly offensive as it is earnest.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Blessed with some outstanding performances, among them Ribisi's.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Bullock's character goes through some changes, but she never turns into some unrecognizably serious actress.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Brain-softener.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    An uninteresting take on a tired formula that is only occasionally funny and usually pretty gross.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Busy, over-stylized mess of a movie.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Of Madonna's considerable talents, making the camera love her isn't one: The screen seems to go dead every time she's on it.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Overblown sanctimony and sentimentalism as corny as the Fourth of July.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 38 Ann Hornaday
    Giamatti provides those small moments of triumph that Duets pretends to celebrate but instead stifles with its sense of superiority.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 33 Ann Hornaday
    The Loss of Sexual Innocence is belabored, pretentious and often willfully opaque. [25 Jun 1999]
    • 17 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    Goes straight to hell, and in this case it is its own handbasket.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    As ugly, excessive and vulgar as "The Usual Suspects" was stylish, subtle and suave.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    It's as if the book itself has been locked up and institutionalized, forced to conform to a system that all but obliterates its own unique personality.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    A mean-hearted, ham-handed and gratuitous effort to exploit it's teenage audience's conviction that, underneath it all, their teachers really. do hate them.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    Lowbrow humor is one thing...but Love Stinks sinks the bar beyond comprehension.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    Just another tepid entry into this year's Death-as-Turn-On Sweepstakes.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    Catherine Breillat's pretentious, meandering, self-indulgent portrait of a libidinously deprived young woman is nothing more than pornography tricked out as feminist parable.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    This dialogue isn't helped by two actors who look terrific but can barely choke out a word that sounds remotely authentic or spontaneous.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    A tired piece of hackery, made only slightly less distasteful by a couple of inspired moments from supporting player Alan Cumming.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    The less said the better.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    Ultimately groans under the weight of its own quiet gorgeousness.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 25 Ann Hornaday
    Aimless and unfocused.
