    An occasionally amusing but wrongheaded remake that arrives more than four decades after the original blazed across the screen.

    By all accounts, Marsh has absorbed classic crazy-killer thrillers like "Psycho," "The Night of the Hunter" and "Badlands," but The King isn't likely to join such esteemed company.

    Damon looks like a kid lost in the wrong neighborhood, and his acting manners underscore that impression--everything is a bit too fine, too neat...An intermittently interesting, intermittently foolish film.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Bill Gallo
    Here's a fervent, G-rated version of contemporary life in which the divine overcomes the earthly and miracles are commonplace. It's aimed squarely at the emerging Christian market.

    Parents wishing to protect their beloved daughters from cliché overload might do well to withhold the old allowance money for a couple of weeks -- until the inevitable bout of Mandymoviemania subsides.

    Vertical Limit represents another kind of propaganda--namely the current Hollywood notion that the bigger and louder and longer a movie is, the more people will want to see it, even if that means getting numbed before your popcorn's cold.

    Comes straight out of the Forrest Gump School of Interpersonal Magic, and that's not necessarily a good thing.
    • 46 Metascore

    Unfortunately, Bullock and Affleck don't strike many sparks or produce many yuks…they're not exactly built for comedy.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 40 Bill Gallo
    This badly muddled adaptation of a complex novel chases after Guterson's many skeins and themes with no unifying principle in mind.

    Emperor gives off a distinctly musty odor -- not least because Kline's character.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 40 Bill Gallo
    The cumulative effect of the movie's many Kodak moments and stretches of greeting-card sentiment is that they kill us with kindness.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Bill Gallo
    Overloaded with oddities but a bit short on horse sense, this is one of those stubbornly defiant, attitude-driven movies that's so busy scrambling genres, breaking rules, and dashing expectations on the road to becoming art that it slips off into the ditch.

    Along with his tedious array of tricks and twists, Parkhill stuffs the film with enough dizzying flashbacks, camera jitters and rock-and-roll editing techniques to drive a 14-year-old MTV addict nuts.
    • 47 Metascore

    Cox, bespectacled and deglamorized here, shows some acting ability, but by the time you get through this 78-minute bag of tricks, you could be suffering from a case of perceptual overload.
    • 44 Metascore

    Mangold gets stuck in the gooey sweet spots of his tale a little more often than he breaks loose with a bracing jolt of perversity.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 40 Bill Gallo
    Like hundreds of doomed movie protagonists before him, the hero of Life as a House doesn't have long to live. By the second reel, you may find yourself wishing his time on the planet was even shorter.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 40 Bill Gallo
    There is more anxiety than loving humor in the proceedings, and a noticeable lack of charm.
