    It's a simple tale of father-and-son bonding that director Huo Jianqi injects with a quiet power, and it benefits greatly from the gorgeous lushness of its backdrop.

    Delivers a sugar rush without the calories.

    Offers an idyllic, comforting surface of tree-shaded lanes and sunshine-dappled fields - but a disturbing tale throbs beneath.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Delivers one of those classic movie moments in which two screen legends go toe to toe, both barrels metaphorically blazing.

    Devoid of 21st-century irony, this visually stunning, action-packed yuletide treat is sweet and, yes, magical in a way that will enchant kids and give older viewers a twinge of nostalgia.

    A compelling look at a vexa tious question, Taking Sides is, at times, hamstrung by its own ambiguity.

    Bale, one of the most intriguing actors of his generation, plays a young man rebelling against his liberal upbringing with a mix of bemusement and lost-puppy anguish, making this film as much about mothers and sons as struggling couples.

    Anderson gives The Machinist a sickly noirish look that contributes to the creeping horror - but it's the emaciated Bale's spectral presence that leaves the imprint.

    A postcard-pretty psychological drama that's too moody and enigmatic for its own good.

    Most of Ultimate X is comprised of truly exhilarating footage of men -- and one woman -- pushing their bodies and their nerve to the edge.

    Commendably, Carrera steers clear of preachiness in his exploration of a timely and relevant issue, and Bernal's transformation from naive priest to tortured adulterer to hard-nosed careerist is riveting.

    Seem to have spliced together two different concepts which, on paper, may have seemed complementary but wind up giving the film a schizophrenic feel.

    Uber-hip technique triumphs over substance in Reconstruction.

    See it only for Paul Bettany's performance.

    Basinger appears to be literally phoning in from another movie in the highly improbable, maniacally action-packed thriller-cum-comedy Cellular.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    One of those all-too-rare cases in which a riveting premise is expertly executed.
    • 60 Metascore

    A stunning display of a filmmaker adventuring on the far side of what's possible.

    De Palma fools around with split screens and slo-mo, but no amount of cinematic artifice can varnish over the fact that this is simply a bad film.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Megan Lehmann
    An atmospheric and subtly engrossing relationship saga, which wowed the critics when it played on British TV and is just now getting a theatrical release.
    • 58 Metascore

    A stinker.

    No light leavens the ashen wash of writer-director Tim Blake Nelson's relentlessly downbeat Holocaust drama The Grey Zone. None.

    This furious finger-pointer's doc is so one-sided, it undermines its own integrity.

    Enough SpongeBob-meets-Monty-Python silliness to give adults a kick as well.

    Although deft editing provides neat segues, "Safety" suffers from a case of too many dramas, too little time. Characters are given no chance to develop and, too often, their behavior turns on a dime, hurtling off into a parallel universe of extreme acts.

    Even with Burton's imagination turning its trademark cartwheels, the film's big beating heart holds the whimsical offshoots steady.

    The character of ZigZag is not sufficiently developed to support a film constructed around him.

    Combined with the eyestrain produced by the cheap cardboard 3-D glasses, the resulting vertigo is decidedly unpleasant -- although having moon rocks and blobs of cream pie flying out from the screen is kinda cool in a retro way.

    • 63 Megan Lehmann
    Essentially an hour-long monologue, but this talking head is so engaging that you can't blame director Lech Kowalski's camera for not wanting to stray from the late Dee Dee Ramone's party-ravaged face.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 38 Megan Lehmann
    Vivid visuals can't save an insipid plot.
    • 57 Metascore

    This contemplative drama manages to dodge mawkish potholes to emerge as a strangely life-affirming work.
