    Tyro helmer Park Hong-soo handles wall-to-wall action, political intrigue and adolescent love with a relentless efficiency that befits his protagonist, even if the execution can feel as methodical as that of a killer checking off a hit list.

    • 60 Maggie Lee
    Notwithstanding some sentimental beats, Peng achieves a delicate balance between bleak realities and a life-affirming attitude, capped by a predictable but necessary catharsis.

    The leads’ chemistry is obvious, even when they’re at each other’s throats.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Maggie Lee
    A carefully constructed mystery that blends screechy comedy and crazed action in high-spirited but somewhat ungainly fashion.

    Though this sequel is just as glossy and shallow as its predecessor, the story gets juicier as the four femme friends transform from kittens to lynxes in the wake of boy troubles and corporate takeovers.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Maggie Lee
    Wholesome, effortless entertainment that runs smoothly enough but seldom takes one’s breath away in the romance department.
    • 52 Metascore

    There’s little in the way of drama, character depth or mise-en-scene to distract from Tiger Chen’s technically dazzling display of human combat in Keanu Reeves’ helming debut.

    Flu
    The story flatlines as the crisis escalates, falling prey to pedestrian human drama and improbable conspiracy subplots.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Maggie Lee
    It’s the robots — endowed here with character-rich physicality and almost human-scaled facial features — who give the film its emotional heft.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 50 Maggie Lee
    The decision to binge on CGI action setpieces overwhelms the romantic spark of the central characters, played by impossibly beautiful leads Lee Bingbing and Aloys Chen Kun, while the film’s themes of class division, human desire and hypocrisy find darker, more riveting expression only toward the end.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Maggie Lee
    Despite its magnificent natural vistas and some pulse-pounding action in stunning 3D, Wolf Totem boils down to a familiar environmentalist allegory that doesn’t move or provoke too deeply.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Maggie Lee
    Less offensively nationalistic than the second installment but falling short of the glowing humanity, genial Cantonese humor and visual flair of the first, the pic is somewhat tarnished by its pedestrian plot and limp characterization.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 40 Maggie Lee
    Without a dominant storyline, the film feels more like a collage of photogenic moments than a full-fledged narrative.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 40 Maggie Lee
    Kawase embraces nature worship and pompous philosophizing in her indulgently mannerist style, which, over the course of two hours, overwhelms a small yet potentially moving story of two teenagers dealing with separation within their families.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 40 Maggie Lee
    The film reaches a narrative and emotional impasse once it gets past the will-they-or-won’t-they stage.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Maggie Lee
    A visually arresting but vacuous, instantly forgettable period martial-arts romance.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 40 Maggie Lee
    The sense of living dangerously is somewhat lacking as Kurt Wimmer’s emotionally vacant screenplay fails to make audiences care enough about the characters to sweat over their physical exertions.
