    The film lucks out by having an intrinsically compelling story, likeable underdog protagonists, and an exotic South Pacific location.

    It feels ineffably slight even if it’s a consistent pleasure to spend time in the company of these three likeable women.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 90 Leslie Felperin
    Clearly rejuvenated by his collaboration with producer Peter Jackson, and blessed with a smart script and the best craftsmanship money can buy, Spielberg has fashioned a whiz-bang thrill ride that's largely faithful to the wholesome spirit of his source but still appealing to younger, Tintin-challenged audiencs.

    • 90 Leslie Felperin
    An exquisitely realized adaptation of Lionel Shriver's bestselling novel. In a rigorously subtle performance as a woman coping with the horrific damage wrought by her psychopathic son, Tilda Swinton anchors the dialogue-light film with an expressiveness that matches her star turn in "I Am Love."

    The film comprises an impressive directorial debut for Adler who demonstrates a confident grasp of pace, place and thesp handling.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Rambling and unfocused but not without its moments.
    • 67 Metascore

    Brugger ensures it's a fairly entertaining excursion, especially when he starts to enjoy getting into character as the nefarious white man in Africa.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Mixed-media approach is eye-catching, and the subject is unquestionably powerful, but the sentimental score and stridently drawn imagery detract from picture's impact.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Stillman proves he still knows how to write crackling, articulate dialogue for quirky preppie characters whom he loves laughing at as much as with.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    A respectable but surprisingly conventional feature-debut effort from Brit artist-turned-helmer Sam Taylor-Wood.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    A very fine if not exactly groundbreaking film about, as the title hints, perspective and distance.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Although a massive hit at home, taking approximately $16 million at the wickets, this great-looking but tonally uneven pic won't jive with audiences quite so well anywhere else.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    An amiable comedy about young Glaswegian roughnecks discovering the world of whisky, The Angels’ Share finds helmer Ken Loach and long-term screenwriting partner Paul Laverty in better, breezier form than their rebarbative prior effort, “Route Irish.”
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    More tightly scripted than Garrel’s usual rambles, the comedy-drama also has an unexpected emotional warmth.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    A gloriously off-the-charts study in perversity.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Like most Sono pictures, too long. But its gleeful humor and dare-you-to-watch aesthetic will help it rack up kills at specialty fests.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    The Good Lie is a touching, generous-hearted movie, sensitively directed by Philippe Falardeau (Monsieur Lazhar) working with a smart, sly, long-gestated script by Margaret Nagle (Boardwalk Empire).
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    Taken strictly on its own terms, Saving Mr. Banks works exceedingly well as mainstream entertainment.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 90 Leslie Felperin
    Repulsive and sublimely beautiful, arguably celebratory and damning of its characters, it’s hideous and masterful all at once, “Salo” with sunburn.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    A pleasing walk in the park for all involved, not exactly profound, but appealing to both long term fans of the franchise and accessible to newcomers.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Adapted from a comicstrip-turned-graphic novel by Posy Simmonds, which was itself based on Thomas Hardy's "Far From the Madding Crowd," picture represents a satirical but soft-biting swipe at contempo middle-class mores among Blighty's chattering countryside classes.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Picture's tone is far more poetic than polemical.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    A nuanced, emotionally temperate study of a precocious youth.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    Reprising the kind of musical performances, campus hijinks, stinging humor and sassy sisterhood put in place by its eminently likeable predecessor, Pitch Perfect 2 remixes the elements and comes up with something even slicker and sharper.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Setting most of the action in a mocked-up theater emphasizes the performance aspects of the characters' behavior, a strategy enhanced by lead thesp Keira Knightley's willingness to let her neurotic Anna appear less sympathetic than in previous incarnations.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Leslie Felperin
    Has sturdy production values, a tony cast and middlebrow tastefulness up the wazoo, but barely any soul, bite or genuine passion.

    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Rio
    Like its flight-challenged parrot protagonist, Rio takes a while to get off the ground but manages to soar by the end.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    There’s much to admire in the film’s elegantly classical tempo and the way Omirbayev achieves so much with so little.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Leslie Felperin
    Helmer James Watkins ("Eden Lake") and scripter Jane Goldman judiciously combine moves from the classic scare-'em-ups with new tricks from recent J-horror pictures to retell Susan Hill's oft-adapted Victorian gothic pastiche.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Leslie Felperin
    "Doomsday," horror-trained British helmer Neil Marshall flexes strong action muscles and carves copious flesh here, creating the sort of broadsword-based bedlam that will thrill fans of ancient martial movies.
