    "When you race with the devil, you'd better be fast as hell." (And you, angry driver, are not that fast.)

    An inoffensive, eminently forgettable bit of fluff.
    • 49 Metascore

    The bottom line with the film is that there's just no damn mystery about it.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Barely even worthy of a straight-to-video release, as simplistic and silly as it is.

    There's not much more to this poorly scripted thriller than exactly one well-done shock moment and Michael Keaton's eyebrows, but, to be fair, Keaton's brows have carried three Tim Burton films nearly on their own, so don't let this dissuade you from seeing the film.

    Herzfeld also wrote the screenplay, and so its leaden and obvious tone and the resulting dearth of delicacy rests squarely on him.

    It’s really just a tortuous series of blackout sketches hung together with the flimsiest of threads.

    This time out, the action is in 3-D, which amounts to a few shots of flaming motorcycle parts comin' at ya, but little else.

    Fans of the video game will doubtless love it all but for true fans of the gnashing dead – and we count ourselves among them – this is strictly second-tier terror.

    A less cohesive action-comedy than its predecessor, Full Throttle is instead a freewheeling collection of random action sequences strung together with little or no discernible rhyme or reason.
    • 37 Metascore

    The finished product is as predictably dull as a newborn's soft spot.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Sitting through the film was an exercise in confusion.
    • 46 Metascore

    Remains little more than a briefly fascinating curiosity, a travelogue for those of us who can't actually attend.
    • 65 Metascore

    It's confused and confusing, by turns hilarious and off-putting. In short, it's awfully hard to love I Love You Philip Morris.
    • 53 Metascore

    This might not matter so much to the youngest members of the audience, but for anyone over the age of 10, it’s strictly a colorful bore.
    • 24 Metascore

    House has a few moments that ring genuinely eerie, but the cluttered, unconvincing dialogue – not to mention Moseley's ongoing penchant for crazed overacting – make it more of a genre curiousity than anything the "Fangoria" gang would likely want to sit through.

    Director Munroe (TMNT) is clearly a fan and attempted his best on an admittedly limited budget, but some things just don't translate that well. Throw this dog a bone? No need, he's already got a closetful.

    Isn't teen heartache confusing enough without adding into the libidinal mix a bunch of buff scullers nicknamed the Queerstrokes?
    • 40 Metascore

    It's a pleasure to watch, but I found myself wondering if having a story here even mattered to the director at all.

    The Nines is the feature-film-directing debut from screenwriter John August (Go, Big Fish), but it feels much more like some Bizarro World collaboration between Jean-Paul Sartre and Charlie Kaufman, and not in a good way, either.

    Like rocky road ice cream, The Rundown is chunky stuff, full of calories and easy to take in small doses. Also like rocky road, it’s bound to attract flies if you leave it lying around, and, more to the point, too much of it is likely to make you gag.

    It's never wise to try to one-up a classic.

    Pixar this isn't, but neither is it "Mary Shelley's Veggie Tales." If only.
    • 47 Metascore

    As scripted by Craig Titley, this first in a presumptive franchise is a dull, scattershot affair that owes much to both "X-Men" and Greek mythology, but which never seems to slow down enough to make any sense whatsoever.

    It's exasperating watching so much top-drawer talent wasted in a film that wraps itself up with one of the most preposterous (not to mention obvious) endings the genre has ever seen.
    • 33 Metascore

    The resulting film makes Sam Raimi's "The Quick and the Dead" look like a stone cold neo-Western thoroughbred.
    • 35 Metascore

    At its core the film is as standardized as the exam it seeks to debunk, and nearly as tedious.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    Torpedoed by its own overarching idealism -- the film targets the new star system, the media, the studios, digital technology, and pretty much everything else you might care to think of -- and not enough script to back it all up.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 30 Marc Savlov
    The film itself is an effective enough metaphor for out-of-control bullshit that frankly, Koepp aside, was part and parcel of King’s novella from page 1.
