    Even when compared to other films posing as Ford Mustang commercials, Need for Speed isn't particularly memorable for anything other than the startling incompetence and dull sheen of the end result.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    The film doubles down on the love-hate relationship with ultra-violence that typified its predecessor, but A History of Violence this is not.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    The breadth of Vince Vaughn's gregarious persona has never been given free reign by any director and this certainly isn't the game-changer.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    A full realization of the very worst fears one could imagine when its director, James Wan, unexpectedly emerged from the torture-porn murk with its original, spiritedly directed predecessor.

    • 25 Chris Cabin
    For all the brawn on display, the film never slows down to take in the thrill and talent of hand-to-hand combat.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    There's no personality in the design or the script, which only renders the cynical aftertaste of this convoluted one-squirrel-against the-world story all the more potent.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    That Dom is so clearly an up-to-11 caricature, embodied with reliable pizzazz by Jude Law, makes the sentimental moments feel especially false.

    It's hard to see the fiscal woes at the center of Zach Braff's second feature as anything more than a fashionable depiction of first-world problems.
    • 19 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    The obvious amount of hard work that went into this out-of-touch sequel is partly what makes it so irritating.
    • 74 Metascore

    David Siegel and Scott McGehee's film renders the rhapsodic Henry James novel of the same name into an abhorrent slice of tasteless familial drama.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    By the time a blackmailing plot is introduced, the film seems to be surviving solely on the fumes of curse words and frequent shots of Jason Segal and Cameron Diaz's backsides.

    The sexism isn't quite as noxious as one might find in Tyler Perry's films, but that's as far as the compliments go when it comes to this overextended and deeply crude sermon.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    Like most of Neil LaBute's work in the field of "emotional terrorism," the film protests that bad behavior isn't only good, but also essential to art.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    One long trial of moral duty, and one that excuses repugnant behavior and psychological warfare in lieu of a repetitive, condescending sermon on honoring thy father.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    Fantasy is heavily dependent on vision, which Mark Helprin had in spades, but the look of Akiva Goldsman's fantasy is limp, timid, and occasionally outright awkward.
    • 37 Metascore

    Jason Reitman fails to take into account any of the positive endeavors enabled by social media, which will no doubt be used to promote and market his film.
