    The writing is often clever and the overall production playful and intelligent.
    • 83 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Painfully funny satire of British and American bureaucrats in the days leading up to the Iraq War.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Lo Cascio and Boni inhabit their roles with keen intellectual and emotional vigor.

    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    The guy knows how to make a heart-pounding movie; he just happens to be a cinematic sadist.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Cody's dialogue has a definite rhythm and Reitman directs his actors to deliver the words in the rapid-fire precision of a '30s screwball comedy. Indeed all scenes develop a rhythm and inner logic that bring the movie to often startling revelations and insights.

    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    David Yates, in his go at the helm, throws the emphasis on the gathering storm clouds even as Harry and his fellow wizardry students make further discoveries involving the opposite sex.

    The movie is fun, with plenty of intrigue and suspense that will have audiences clutching at their arm rests.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    What a relief to escape the series' increasing bondage to high-tech gimmicks in favor of intrigue and suspense featuring richly nuanced characters and women who think the body's sexiest organ is the brain.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Few films have so poignantly portrayed a father's relationships with his sons as The Boys Are Back.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Allen turns the character into a tour de force that unleashes an unexpected comedy about compassion and self-loathing.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Fulfills the requirements of grand-scale moviemaking while serving as a timely reminder that in the conflict between Christianity and Islam it was the Christians who picked the first fight.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Christian Slater and Selma Blair head a solid cast that Harvey Kahn directs with cool efficiency as the tension steadily rises with every passing minute.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Pure's lively and colorful cinematic style turns a "downer" story about grim lives and desperation into a powerful love story.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Might be too realistic for its own good: The film takes perhaps a little too much glee in its abilities to manufacture mayhem. That being said, the ride is extraordinary.

    Riveting.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    The film achieves its power through a careful gathering of crucial details, in wordless glances, cruelties of nature and of man and the relentless determination to gain the promised land.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    A crackling good suspense thriller.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Here's a film about kids and for kids that has not lost touch with what it is like to actually be a kid.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    A likable mix of laughs and wacky action sequences.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    A newcomer to film, Michaletos grew up on a farm with cheetahs, so he can act natural around the animals while making this Huck Finn-like character more than credible.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Has a demented sense of humor, and the cleverness of its taut narrative structure and misanthropic characterizations constantly surprises a viewer. The movie does what you wish more first-time features would do: tell a story economically with first-rate actors and no hint of self-consciousness.
    • 82 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    His (Fernando Meirelles) impressionistic, guerilla style of filmmaking works surprisingly well in capturing the hypnotic urgency of le Carre's fiction. And his viewpoint is less British and more Third World.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Cage is brilliant.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    The story presents a moral morass involving betrayal, illicit sex, hypocrisy and a crime, yet the film feels tidy. Only one punch gets thrown, and you sense the perpetrator regrets his action immediately. It is all very British.
    • 87 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    The movie rolls merrily along with slapstick action and whimsical characters.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    A riveting tale of survival and how even war cannot diminish a child's indomitable spirit.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    A prime example of a solid romantic comedy.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    The details are what matters, and thanks to a cast of all-star British elders and a mischievous sense of humor, the filmmakers bring those details to vivid life.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 80 Kirk Honeycutt
    Here is a film about Japan made by Americans, shot mostly in the U.S. and, of course, in English. Once you accept these compromises in the name of international filmmaking, none is a real deterrent to enjoying this lush period film.

    Jones displays a firm hand at the helm -- you sense that he is well within his comfort zone in this environment -- and performances including his own are lively and convincing.
