    With its eye-popping color palette and surreal sense of ever-heightening melodrama, Thunderbirds comes across as "Spy Kids'" poorer British cousin.

    This space invaders stuff is, like, so 1981.
    • 28 Metascore

    Batman & Robin fails to engage the spirit of Batman, Robin, or decent marketing in general, and instead ends up as a limp, excruciatingly shallow knockoff that leaves viewers cringing at the unavoidable one-liners that make up the better part of the script.

    Stupendously dull and infuriatingly obtuse.
    • 38 Metascore

    The man behind the "Rush Hour" franchise proves that dropping sly nods in Alfred Hitchcock's direction does not necessarily a fine caper make.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Absurdism taken to a new extreme.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Of all the missteps made and absurdities offered, the most glaring is the casting of what appears to be a steroidal Eurotrash pimp as no less than Dracula.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Toils in high school hell and doesn't even manage to come up with one good shock.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    It's a dull, unremarkable comedy.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Not stupid enough to qualify as good, dumb fun.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Even the should-have-been-triumphant revelation of the Boogeyman arrives as a CGI letdown of epic proportions.

    Inexplicable Fantasy Romances for the Harried Modern Gal 101 is a more fitting title for this shameless mediocrity.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Genre fans and newcomers alike should skip this monstrosity and go rent "Ginger Snaps" instead.
    • 44 Metascore

    It's only at film's end that you realize the whole soggy, overlong mess isn't going to go anywhere.
    • 56 Metascore

    Ultimately, it's a bore. Don't see the movie – read the book, play the game.
    • 52 Metascore

    The overall emotion the film generates is one of moist, enervated ennui. Who cares if the apartment is haunted when the best the ghost can do is get things a bit damp and run laps on the floor above?

    Despite an ambitious script from Wadlow and Beau Bauman, it's extremely difficult to care, seeing as how these tropes have already been recycled enough to make Greenpeace proud.
    • 30 Metascore

    Daltry Calhoun's saving grace comes in the form of a snappy compilation soundtrack that spans from Johnny Cash to Serge Gainsbourg, a feat of all-inclusiveness that renders the film a moot point at best.

    There are precious few things for a Zorro fan – or a film fan, for that matter – not to loathe about The Legend of Zorro.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    Best never to have left dry dock with this one.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 20 Marc Savlov
    It's not just a bad movie it actually manages to suck the very hope out of the air, leaving behind a cinematic vacuum populated by mobsters, sadists, pedophiliac demon-people, and an overwhelming sense of futility that just makes you want to run in the other direction.
    • 50 Metascore

    It's all so much blood and brine signifying nothing, not even a good time. Now somebody do us all a favor and cut that albatross from around Petersen's neck already.

    Do yourself a favor: Go rent Hardy's original film, watch it, and then try and get it out of your head. You never, ever will.
    • 18 Metascore

    Darby and co-screenwriter Michael Cristofer ("Breaking Up") telegraph every available bit of plot seemingly hours before it's necessary, resulting in a tawdry, boring mish-mash of genre clichés and arched eyebrows.

    Americans are befuddled by the inexplicable, and they demand explanations. With The Grudge 2 Shimizu delivers them and thus defangs the horror, leaving us in a well-lit room, pining for the shadows.

    Dear George Lucas: What gives with this Eragon jazz? I mean, gee whiz, did you seriously think that we wouldn't recognize you, the Great Man, as the guiding, um, FORCE behind this dull retelling of "Star Wars"?

    Unfortunately, the film rests heavily on the shoulders of Murphy, who seems to wander aimlessly from scene to scene, searching for a laugh. The joke's on him, though: There are none.
    • 44 Metascore

    It just signals a series that's plainly out of gas.
    • 35 Metascore

    To be sure, Hitman is a lousy film, but like the video game that inspired it, it's also great fun, drawing as it does on everything from James Bondian Eurotrash panache to Vin Diesel's moribund XXX character.

    They shoot rodents, don't they?
