    It plays like a soft-core-porn potboiler left over from the 1970s about a hot vampire chick.

    Miyazaki, like an evil sorcerer, has plucked the heart out of Jones's story and left it there to die.

    Anyone with a modicum of good sense -- or a weak stomach -- will take it as a warning to stay the heck away from this literally and figuratively deadly "War Zone."
    • 72 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's the sort of movie that can make normally well-read and intelligent viewers feel stupid.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    For a comedy, there are precious few real laughs. Three to be exact.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The story here is just not particularly amusing.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Oddly off-balance, estrogen-powered dramedy.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Here, common sense flies out the window, along with the hail of bullets.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    There's so much wrong with this movie.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Propelled not by characters but caricatures.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Cinematic sleeping pill.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Awash in the kind of pretension that only the French can get away with.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Very much like sex. On second thought, make that bad sex. Actually, sexual assault is more like it. It will leave you feeling used, bruised, violated, mistrustful and unclean.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    It's all too, too cute and too, too forced for words -- not to mention too, too dark.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Clumsily under-written and feverishly overacted, it's as embarrassing to watch as it is perplexing.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Allegations of governmental double-talk and cover-ups are, unfortunately, boooring.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Wild Wild Waste is more like it. Waste of time, waste of money and colossal waste of talent.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Neither funny nor suspenseful nor particularly well drawn.
    • 32 Metascore

    The makers of Godzilla obviously devoted so much manpower and time and energy and money to the admittedly fabulous special effects that they apparently had no budget left over for actors.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    I'm not sure if it was that or the cloying script, but after a couple of hours of spinning around listening to this drivel I felt like I was going to barf.

    The real problem is not the maudlin script or Madden's travelogue touch. It's Cage as Corelli, a miscasting that turns the normally volatile, edgy performer into little more than a spokesman for the Olive Garden.
    • 43 Metascore

    The jokes are lame, the set-up is stupid and Bullock, occasionally a winsome comedienne and here a co-producer, is annoying as heck.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    I never forgot for a minute that I was watching a cartoon, all the way down to the silly, pseudo-spiritual ending, an ending whose very incomprehensibility is actually one of the more endearing hallmarks of anime.

    Do not be concerned if laughter trickles out of the scary parts or boredom creeps into the funny parts; this is to be expected.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    Full of the kind of obnoxious chitchat that only self-aware neurotics engage in. Christopher and Grace probably deserve each other, but that doesn't mean that any of us do.
    • 25 Metascore

    Most of the comedy, such as it is, consists of the uppity Chase acting "street" and the ghetto-fabulous Tiffany putting on moneyed airs. But, if you've seen the trailers, you already know that.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    There was absolutely no reason to make a new version of the 1970 comedy.
    • 48 Metascore

    Its important if inflammatory message will bore all but Chomsky's fellow travelers to death.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    The drug-fueled romp turns ugly, sexist and misogynistic, as so many rap-star vehicles do.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 20 Michael O'Sullivan
    A loud, choppily edited and surprisingly unengaging portrait of speed demons.
