    • 38 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A gangster movie with the capacity to surprise. People do unexpected things and for reasons we wouldn't anticipate.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    xXx
    In terms of adrenaline, XXX is one of the most satisfying entries this summer.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Earns its emotional moments, and it takes the audience along.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It doesn't analyze or explain it; it just presents it. The result is funny and disturbing at the same time.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The sweetest little movie about a neurological disorder that we're ever likely to see.
    • 89 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    An excellent film noir.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's a buoyant comedy with more warmth and generosity of spirit than anything else in theaters right now.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A substantial examination of character, morality and destiny.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Max
    An intelligent film with a sophisticated understanding of art and the significance it played in Hitler's psychology.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Strange, moody film.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The film is certainly clever enough to hold an audience's interest throughout, though in the end it's a victim of its own ambition. As a moral investigation, it's shallow and ultimately ludicrous.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The spectacle is nothing short of refreshing.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Re-creates that chilling sense that comes when, in the middle of a pleasant conversation, one realizes the other person is off his rocker.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Elusive and compelling.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's so bleak that it would play like a contrived neo-noir if it weren't so consistent, committed and obviously sincere.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It blends an intriguing concept with a suspenseful plot, and the result is a gripping 103 minutes at the movies.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Hawke is the movie's revelation.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A smart, arch and rather cold-blooded comedy.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Glorious moments aplenty despite director who's just in the way.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A particularly strong family drama, and the Icelandic setting helps, adding a touch of the exotic.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The picture is crammed with shameless satire, engaging moments of pure silliness and jokes that border on the outrageous. It combines relentless energy with an aura of good nature for a formula that works.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Here, as in the "Friday" movies, the jokes are big and rude and vulgar and very funny.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    The picture is more impressive as it goes along, revealing a symmetry of construction underneath the rudiments of a thriller.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    A thriller that presses all the buttons: parental love, childhood terror, fear of Vince Vaughn.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Relies on comic formula -- but does so with more than usual panache.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's the most tension-producing movie out there right now -- in the best way, it's almost unbearable.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Anyone who prefers Hugh Grant and Sandra Bullock to Ralph Fiennes and Jennifer Lopez is bound to regard Two Weeks Notice and not "Maid in Manhattan" as the better candidate for romantic comedy of the season.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Jennifer Aniston...doesn't have much screen time, but in playing this slightly insecure, affable young woman, she does her best film acting to date.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    It's entertaining and inoffensive.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 75 Mick LaSalle
    Talk about disturbing.
