    The director belabors every moment, forgetting that pulp tales need to be told quickly, lest the viewer have time to second-guess.

    One almost pities the unnervingly twitchy Murphy, whose shiny makeup is dreadful, and who doesn't stand a chance alongside the focused intensity of Fanning, who commands the screen with the precision of a 30-year veteran.

    After a zippy first hour, the wackos wear out their welcome and the director, perversely, fails to show the big concert.

    A mindless muddle.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Rich with comic potential that goes unfulfilled, time after stupefying time.

    Even the easily weepy may grow impatient with the snail’s pace of this melancholy romance.

    A horror movie that's not horrific enough, Soul Survivors plays like a "Twilight Zone" by way of "Touched by an Angel."
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    First-time director João Pedro Rodrigues' unwillingness to define his hero’s background or motivations becomes more and more frustrating as the film goes on.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    To help Prinze sail past the eventually unbearable clichés of Kevin Falls and John Gatins' script, director Mike Tollin has assembled an impressive supporting cast.

    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Shawn is clearly meant to have deep feelings, yet the filmmakers have saddled her -- and Blair -- with a shallow angst that bums out the whole movie.

    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    As a calling card for the stylistic talents of a new filmmaker, writer-director Anna Chi's first feature is a success. As drama, it's a dud.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Judging by the stilted nature of both the dialogue and acting, that's what this film is -- a thesis project better suited to a grad-night exhibition.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Strictly Urban Comedy 101, as if the filmmakers had neither the inclination nor the chops to move the genre past timeworn stereotypes.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    There's not a believable moment in all of it, but for a while the film chugs along on Ryan's innate charisma. Even so, no amount of movie-star twinkle could lighten screenwriter Cheryl Edwards' bizarre character arc, which finds Jackie turning, overnight, into a callous, possibly racist, ninny.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Insipid embarrassment.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Screenwriters Melissa Carter and Erica Bell (Sleepover) have given Murphy -- perhaps the twitchiest actor of her generation --cutesy quirks to play in lieu of a character.

    What they don't do often enough is battle anacondas. It's all tease and no payoff.
    • 27 Metascore

    The glitch, beyond the rote story, is that while she's an infectiously upbeat screen presence, Latifah is not, inherently, a major laugh generator, and neither, it would appear, is Fallon.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Why the devotion to such dull material?
    • 9 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Director Uwe Boll (House of the Dead) pulls off a nicely staged fistfight in an open-air market at the start, but soon loses his way amid mind-glazing exposition and endless gunfire aimed at bulletproof giant lizards.
    • 20 Metascore

    Most of the animated sequences, capably mixed with live action, leave a bad aftertaste, particularly when the ultimate fate of one beaten and battered human bystander after another is left callously unresolved. In other words, parents beware.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Remarkably unfunny.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    Moves slowly and deflates completely when the over-hyped family secret turns out to be a dramatic dud. Still, it's an awfully pretty movie. Let's all summer in Maine.

    Baffling too is The Rock's choice to follow up his acclaimed performance in "Be Cool" with a role that requires him to do little more than widen his eyes and grunt lines.

    With her long, black coat and midair karate-chop skills, Selene is more Matrix-y Neo than Count Dracula, which may explain why this movie is so brutally un-fun.

    This is a decidedly bizarre movie, nicely photographed and designed -- someone spent some money -- but built entirely around dialogue so stilted and unrevealing that it’s little wonder poor LaVorgna screams it.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 30 Chuck Wilson
    There is nothing sadder, either in real life or on the movie screen, than an unlikable idiot, and what we have with this dreadful comedy -- the longest 90 minutes of the film year -- is the sight of not one but two charm-free fools.

    Inane uplift tale for teens.

    If your cell phone vibrates while you’re watching One Missed Call, go ahead and answer, because even a wrong number will be more exciting than what’s happening onscreen.

    After a first hour that plays like a bad TV show, Sommers hits his groove with an over-the-top Paris chase sequence that, in turn, leads to an underwater finale that’s absurdly overproduced, momentarily diverting, and then instantly forgettable.
