    3 Days to Kill feels like two very different movies, neither of which is particularly good.

    If for some reason you find yourself in a theater watching the martial arts adventure Man of Tai Chi...feel free to take a nap during the non-fight sequences.

    There’s some fun to be had, as long as your idea of fun includes being grossed out.

    Watching Addicted is like eating Cheese Whiz straight from the jar. There’s no nutritional value. It’s kind of embarrassing. But it does satisfy a base craving for cheap, immediate sensation.

    Capital is too cynical to ever really suggest that redemption is possible. Not that anyone watching will even care.

    This sharp left turn takes the films’ mythology in strange and not entirely satisfying new directions, including a crazy time-travel element.

    The film is probably of interest only to those viewers who, like Gondry himself apparently, already have an obsession with Chomsky.

    So maybe some of this is hilarious. Heck, maybe all of it is. It will not be everyone’s cup of tea, and it was not mine.

    Sabotage doesn’t exactly glorify violence, but it certainly does get off on it.

    The Boy Next Door plays best as unintentional comedy.

    Tusk seems to harbor no grander ambitions than to create a gross-out gag.

    Visually, Brick Mansions is a duller and more conventional film than “District B13,“ which was, if nothing else, a sourball-flavored form of eye candy.

    The Signal has visual style to burn. And it takes good advantage of the current state of paranoia arising from our surveillance culture and the pervasive mistrust in government. On paper, this sounds like a good formula. If handled well, it could really pay off.

    There are no surprises here, only blandly reassuring homilies.

    Heedless of purpose, Horns charges full speed ahead anyway, ramming its high-concept hooey down your throat until the only heat you feel is from indigestion.

    Rudderless is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen.
    • 26 Metascore

    It’s a lazy piece of work, even by the low standards of Hollywood horror movies.
    • 24 Metascore

    The air inside the pyramid isn’t the only thing that’s stale in this ludicrous yet mildly likable horror film.
    • 34 Metascore

    What it suffers from most is the sense of offhand storytelling that lies halfway between creative laziness and cost-cutting sloppiness.

    I started out this journey actually liking children. By the end of the movie, I wasn't so sure.

    Lacks "spark."

    Sure, I laughed. Yes, I cried. But mostly I just wanted to throw up.

    It doesn't satisfy in the way a good thriller ought to.
    • 59 Metascore

    A syrupy Italian power ballad along the lines of the ones on the movie's soundtrack. Its tune is mawkish, bombastic but, in the end, not especially resonant.

    It starts with a bang and ends with a whimper.
    • 37 Metascore

    Loud, dumb and obnoxious.
    • 75 Metascore

    Feels like something I know is supposed to be good for me, but that I just couldn't stomach.
    • 57 Metascore

    The underwhelming, only fitfully amusing movie left me hungry for more.

    The girls in 'Traveling Pants' are only mannequins wearing someone else's clothes. They don't get inside your head, let alone your heart.
    • 27 Metascore

    A series of cutesy but flat-footed jokes leading up to a foregone romantic conclusion.
