    The storyline would appear trite and the message muddled even to someone who'd never heard the name Mel Gibson.

    Whereas Carver writes about alcoholics, this movie is about alcoholism, which is completely different.

    Thor meets the elevated expectations for superhero movies today, but doesn't exceed them. There's some sloppy plotting, which always shows a certain disregard for the audience's intelligence.

    Director Martin Koolhoven doesn't take many narrative chances, but the somber, steely cinematography and convincing performances help to carry the day.

    A mental workout of the most invigorating sort.

    Ultimately, the story can be seen as the collision of two equally uncompromising belief systems, each its own form of fundamentalism. That neither benefits from the encounter should come as no surprise to anyone with the slightest knowledge of human history.

    If you believe that, as one interviewee says, "Science is just another story," then these ideas may ring true. If you're looking for actual solutions to global problems, rather than ways to feel better about them, I Am will be a frustrating experience.

    While the film is no groundbreaker, it is a paragon of elegance without austerity, and there's nothing like being in the confident hands of a master filmmaker.

    It wallows in misery so much that the two-hour experience ends up being about as much fun as a real divorce.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 42 Marc Mohan
    With a self-plagiarizing premise, lifeless performances and a clunky-to-say-the-least screenplay, this star-studded flop is one of 2010's most egregious wastes of cinematic talent.
    • 55 Metascore

    They could have made a harder-hitting, more realistic film, but then no one would have gone to see it.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    The increasingly unlikely escapades culminate in a finale that's as narratively lazy as it is morally questionable, lending further credence to the voices that proclaimed Haggis absurdly overpraised for the 2004 Oscar-winner "Crash."
    • 57 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Rather like a four-hour episode of "Today": painless enough, leavening superficiality with substance, allowing you to watch and still do the laundry without missing anything vital.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 42 Marc Mohan
    It isn't a lack of realism or philosophical consistency that rankles most, though, but rather the anticlimactic story and uninteresting characters that make this Hereafter not very sweet at all.

    Zach Braff has come up with a charming, funny, melancholy ode to twentysomething angst.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    Director Bent Hamer ("Factotum") keeps things drily amusing throughout.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Prolific documentarian Alex Gibney takes a labyrinthine, detail-laden story and crafts an attention-holding film, polemical without ranting.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 42 Marc Mohan
    A bloodless film that aims for wry but leaves you merely asking "why?"
    • 58 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    The film paints a by now familiar picture of suburbia as a pit of dysfunction, though some nice dark-humored moments and generally fine performances make up for a lot.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 58 Marc Mohan
    The plot, as hinted, goes strictly by the "How April Got Her Groove Back" book, but it must be said that the performances push it a notch above pedestrian.

    The ensemble can't bring enough, though, to overcome the unoriginal setup and predictable story arc.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 67 Marc Mohan
    Bottle Shock never quite connects. And considering the more recent transformation of Napa, the movie's triumphant ending rings a bit false.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    A well-acted, convincing portrait of a successful but overworked film producer.

    Whether Waddington's film comes across as hypnotic or boring, mythic or pretentious, may depend on the viewer's mood or tolerance for quasi-allegorical storytelling. But, as the women in House of Sand learn, patience can sometimes be its own reward.

    Worst of all, not once does Mulder answer his cell phone to hear those immortal lines: "It's Scully. There's been another death."
    • 56 Metascore

    The only problem is that he's been such a shallow, ridiculous figure that exhuming any real sympathy for the guy is a Herculean task.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Marc Mohan
    Intense, well-acted love story.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 91 Marc Mohan
    Akin is German-born but of Turkish heritage, and his films have often been concerned with the particular clashes and conflicts between those cultures. This film, though, does so in a much more oblique way than 2004's "Head-On."
    • 68 Metascore
    • 83 Marc Mohan
    The politics of the story come to life through the vivid characterizations of a uniformly excellent cast.
    • 58 Metascore

    Overall, the trip successfully embodies the spirit of the original Magic Bus man, Ken Kesey, whom these modern-day pranksters visit in a poignant scene filmed just months before his death.
