    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.

    • 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.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    A film so overworked to ensure mass-market appeal that it loses the charming oddness and loose goofiness that has allowed these characters to endure.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 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.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    The film delivers the same misogynistic, faux-modernistic jolts of trashy humor and labored plotting that typify the work of co-producer Michael Bay.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    It's tructured in familiar, safe terms, plays for very low stakes, and appeals to no one so much as white, male teenagers with chips on their shoulders.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    Josh Heald's script takes the easy way out, ending the film with a torrent of slapdash sentimentality.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Chris Cabin
    The film's exasperating atonality washes out any legitimate idea about identity, education, nature versus nurture, or artificial intelligence that Neill Blomkamp hoped to evince.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    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.
    • 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.
    • 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.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 12 Chris Cabin
    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.
    • 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.
