    Green Zone is just an excuse for director Paul Greengrass to haul out his jittery hand-held camera as Miller and Co. sprint through the streets and buildings of Baghdad in pursuit of one villain or another.

    Despite its exciting moments, the film is too long.
    • 74 Metascore

    Wields some power, but it's hard to shake the feeling you've seen it all before.

    The movie still manages to unearth laughs, some of them pretty big, especially once Shanté's program is under way.

    She could come off preachy here but instead sounds blunt and honest. And that's more than enough.

    Hits the parallels between love and hip-hop a little too hard when the message is relatively easy to grasp: Don't sell out: not your art, not your heart. If only music business executives were listening.

    It's a pleasure to see acceptance portrayed so matter-of-factly. May never happen in our lifetimes, but Lesnick's vision of tolerance is a soothing thought, anyway.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Likable, cheerfully off-color comedy.

    This film and Miller's vision remind us of the danger of giving in to fear.

    Won't make you forget Kidman's better work, but it's not a film you long to excise from your memory.

    It's López de Ayala's show, and she's relentless in her energy and passion.

    It's a lot more entertaining than box office success "Scooby-Doo" and more honest, too. When Irwin plays out a scene with a reptilian, you can be sure the croc is not computer-generated.

    It is entertaining enough to send intelligent viewers (but only the intelligent ones) in search of the book.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Carries an undeniable follow-your-field-of-dreams appeal.
    • 34 Metascore

    It's fun to watch the stocky, scowling Ice Cube and skinny, jittery Epps play off each other; they click on screen.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    More than just another feel-good teacher movie.
    • 47 Metascore

    Call it a victory for sincerity and style: Despite its familiarity, Blonde 2 doesn't make you want to pull out your hair by its (touched-up) roots.
    • 35 Metascore

    The music is of course majestic, blending well with a loving cinematography.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    An important and interesting story, but the reform school itself never seems terribly harsh.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Harmless, mildly enjoyable.

    Never reaches this level of devastating loss despite its tragedies, but it's not the dismal bomb that much of the British press claims.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Eventually loses its cheerful goofiness and its momentum, climaxing with a lengthy and embarrassing showdown scene at a big party. But it gets worse.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Essentially an old-fashioned movie, nothing fancy, nothing new, just some jokes and some action and a crowd-pleasing finale.
    • 58 Metascore

    The Safety of Objects doesn't carry the power of Ang Lee's "The Ice Storm," a similarly themed work about WASPS in crisis. Objects is too artificial, clunky with too many preposterous situations.

    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Shares an important slice of German history that is largely unknown.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Manages to sidestep the potential overload of cheap sentimentality -- an intimate dance between an elderly couple registers with heartbreaking sweetness -- and evokes a lingering sense of loss.
    • 51 Metascore

    The charms of Lucía, Lucía rely heavily on the charismatic Roth, who is funny and warm and a lot of fun to watch as she embraces her new life.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    A well-intentioned coming-of-age film anchored by two indelible performances but weakened by an overabundance of drama.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    Half-hearted satire of Hollywood and small-town life, and Bosworth is not particularly memorable in it.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 63 Connie Ogle
    If it's not quite as funny as you want it to be, it's still more than enough to keep you entertained.
