    As with many biopics, Richard is seen as the perfect hero, a man who singlehandedly changed the way the United States treats its disabled citizens. That's a bit of a stretch.

    The biggest appeal of Passionada is Sofia Milos, a sexy actress who commands the screen in every scene she's in.

    Will leave you taking sides, whether or not that was the film's intent.

    House of Fools is not in the category of the director's acclaimed "Runaway Train." It may be based on a true story, but another filmmaker told it before -- and better.

    Captures the essence of the period -- an intriguing, backward era in Spain -- but without the emotional impact that such a film requires.

    One shallow film, that quickly returns to where it started: Zero.

    Campfire looks a bit drab, perhaps to show the dullness of Zionist life in the 1980s. But this doesn't take away from the poignancy of the film.

    Listening to O'Reilly, Anne Coulter and others vilify Franken -- and vice versa -- is part of the dialogue that makes America great.

    Beautiful to look at but aimless as a broken compass.

    Despite its flaws, The Gatekeeper will keep you engaged.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 75 Marta Barber
    A mesmerizing documentary about the rise and fall of a drug lord, perhaps the biggest there ever was.

    Unlike “Amélie,” Love Me If You Dare will not become a sleeper. But neither will it make you go to sleep.

    The Situation is written by Wendell Steavenson, a reporter who served in Iraq, as a work of fiction. Its best quality is that the situation in Iraq appears to be sadly realistic.

    Far from perfect, but for those willing to laugh at the darker side of life, especially Latin American life, it is fun.

    A good story, but its potential is never realized.

    This wacky, campy lampoon of 1950s Hollywood musicals is not for everyone.

    What is evident from the film is that there was never any chance these two peoples could make a peaceful coexistence.

    You come out with a sense you've seen it all before.

    What you'll remember most are a pretty face and the hot and steamy sex scenes. That is not enough.

    The intended satire doesn't deliver the kind of punch you may expect, but it nevertheless poses many what-ifs.

    May not be a work of fiction but, despite its many minutes of real footage, it is far from being a documentary. Lack of truth in advertising notwithstanding, the story of this Colombian cowboy deserved to be told.
