    While the overall concept of the script is pretty creative and original, at several points along the way the storyline gets a bit muddled.

    While the animation is quite good and the filmmakers have brought together an excellent group of actors to provide the voice talent, the storyline leaves us with a tale more reminiscent of Saturday morning kids’ programming.

    The best parts of Need for Speed are the actual racing and chasing sequences — a true thrill ride for the audience as the story unfolds.

    This company of actors pulls together and delivers a lot of punch to a pedestrian script inspired by quite an amazing tale.

    The life lessons about morals and values are soft-pedaled pretty well and packaged in a mostly funny romp as the trio of mothers’ night-on-the-town turns in all sorts of bizarre and wacky ways.

    Wonderful as it is to watch great actors delve deeply into their roles, it’s a shame that the material they are delivering is just so damn confusing.

    The saving grace for this film is the group of young actors.

    This second film is again heartwarming and includes some nice performances from Connick, Gamble and Morgan Freeman.

    The Best of Me was a better film than I expected. Much of that is due to the performances delivered by Marsden, Monaghan, Liana Liberato and especially young Australian actor Luke Bracey as the younger version of Marsden’s character.

    The message of inspiration is strong and certainly qualifies as solid family entertainment. I only wish there were fewer trite truisms scattered throughout the script and less predictable dialogue for the solid troupe of actors to deliver.

    This is a well-meaning film with a good idea that unfortunately stumbles on its way to its less-than-satisfying end.

    While the lead actors deliver lovely performances, it’s a shame they have to work with material so ham-handed and overbearing.

    The actors do their best. The problem here is simply a formulaic screenplay and less-than-inspired direction.

    This Carrie comes off like a Lifetime film, adding little new and nothing substantial to improve on DePalma’s classic.

    The film ends up feeling more like a very long music video.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 38 Bill Zwecker
    This lame tale just falls completely flat.

    The best thing about The Hero of Color City is its good voice talent — and its running time of only 77 minutes. Other than that, this is a pretty lame computer-generated animated movie that will likely not engage kids much past the first grade.

    This may be one of the least artful holiday films ever made. Even devout born-again Christians will find this hard to stomach.
