    It's astonishing that so much money, talent, technical expertise and visual imagination can be put in the service of something so stupid.

    Anyone expecting a flashy Bond-style fantasy is going to be disappointed.

    Dumb.

    De Palma seems to be trying too hard to make somebody else's great movie, once again an Alfred Hitchcock movie. Would someone please tell this guy to relax?

    This half-baked sci-fi horror film, filled with jerky, washed-out, highlighted, blurred and toned imagery, is a tiresome experience.

    • 25 Bob Graham
    A coming-of-age story that gets it all wrong.

    It means to be knowing and cynical but is just callow.
    • 46 Metascore

    Runs out of ideas long before the projector runs out of film.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    A hostage drama that oscillates between soap opera and action flick.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    Earnest, but a work in progress.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    There are barrages of fast cuts to distract us from the fact that the director is showing us no real action.

    Any way you slice it, it is still pointless.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    Don't even try to make any sense of this --none of it elicits a moment of genuine concern.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    The ridiculous complications might have worked if there had been an awareness of how absurd they are.

    Seems it's never going to reach liftoff.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    A tired and dispiriting affair that takes forever to get going.

    There still is no life on Mars. Red Planet is airless.

    Something so sappy, no one would believe me if I told them. It has to be seen to be disbelieved.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    This poor excuse for a thriller turns, with a great crunching of gears, into a mess of a buddy comedy. Either way, it misfires.

    • 25 Bob Graham
    The last 15 minutes finally get it together for what passes as a movie experience with a considerable "gotcha!" quotient.

    Beatty's "Heaven Can Wait," released in 1978, was a comic fantasy about a near-death experience. This new version is a near-life experience.

    This lurid thriller comes to life in fits and starts, and then sinks into the bog of its own cleverness once again.

    When a movie sets out to be awful and achieves its goal, does that make it a success?
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    Doesn't look like a movie somebody made. It looks like a movie somebody hallucinated and put up on the screen.

    What is bloody and full of holes?
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    The movie lacks the one thing that the classic "Three Musketeers" story can't do without: panache.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    Turns into one long wallow.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    This noir mystery is murkier than it needs to be, through no fault of Stallone's.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    A hodgepodge of half-baked visual styles can't disguise the fact that this dismal thriller is all situation and no story.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 25 Bob Graham
    It's standard slasher fare but has its moments.
