    Has added virtually nothing to two cinema genres with their own prodigious histories: ensemble and black.
    • USA Today
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Flimsy little comedy unworthy of its portentous title.
    • 85 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    A stylistically fastidious, exasperatingly affected package that will put most people in the mood for slumber.

    Of course, The Rock looks the part, though with a headband and buckskin, he'd also look like Tonto on steroids.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    This remake is shorter than its predecessors, a welcome earthly reward.

    On both technical and conceptual levels, Bamboozled is a movie that will leave Spike Lee fans bewildered.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The movie grows progressively more routine in quarter-hour increments, eventually collapsing under the weight of its own insignificance.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The time might be right for the Scary movies to quit on top, even though, alas, there are no term limits for sequels.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    After a tense, terrific, stomach-turning opening that may have moviegoing acrophobes recalling Vertigo, the film soon becomes the latest screen variation on cat-and-Mighty Mouse. [28May1993 Pg.04.D]
    • USA Today
    • 78 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    It's a hoary Chinatown knock-off wrapped in a seductively novel black-culture veneer, with a dash of Laura added for bad measure. [29 Sept 1995, p.01.D]
    • USA Today
    • 33 Metascore

    Evil's one strong presence is lead Milla Jovovich -- and not because the script gives her supercop/soldier anything interesting to say.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The sentiments here are thoroughly semper fi, but the result occasionally works at cross-purposes.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Only slightly more slick and slightly less edgy than past John Grisham adaptations.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Stilted film squanders an intriguing premise.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Were this movie a naval battle, it would be Lord Nelson vs. Judd Nelson, so decisively do the older actors knock the younger off the screen. [26Dec1997 Pg03.D]
    • USA Today
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Top-flight cast.
    • USA Today
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Plays a little like a pacifistic variation on Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon."
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    It's reduced to glorified refereeing of family squabbles discomfortingly magnified by his frequent use of close-ups.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Pulpy, fairly speedy but just the same old urban thing by its wrap-up.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Poor, no-respect ABBA gets tweaked repeatedly in this unexpectedly handsome widescreen import - though, in keeping with the movie's soft tone, the gooning isn't mean-spirited or even all that catty. [10 Aug 1994]
    • USA Today
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    At least director Dwight Little (Free Willy 2) gives us enough B-movie speed to keep Orchid from becoming a fountain of aging.
    • 12 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    There are laughs here, but easily as many groans.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The Chamber merits some respect for daring to be gloomy, for facing the capital punishment issue head-on and for the quality of Gene Hackman's performance. [11 October 1996, p.1D]

    • 43 Metascore

    Tested my own love of the game more than anything since the time Roseanne screeched the national anthem.
    • USA Today
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    The tepid result is like "Courage Under Fire" without the compelling Meg Ryan angle, or Travolta's 1999 "The General's Daughter" without the sexual squalor. It all feels a little moldy.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Mediocre terrorist melodrama turned even punier by real-life events, and that's before we scratch our heads at its lead-actor choice.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Though this saga would be terrific to read about, it is dicey screen material that only a genius should touch. With no genius in sight, K-19 might be headed for meltdown.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Mary Reilly, a perversely courageous disaster that audiences will simply hate. [23 Feb 1996]
    • USA Today
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Far from being a run-of-the-mill slasher pic.
    • USA Today
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    If grossness gives you the giggles, at least a couple of the movie's effects indeed put a little "wow" in this cinematic bowwow.
