    What it isn't ... is a particularly compelling contribution to the impressive and by now enormous collection of Holocaust movies.

    Action star Chow Yun-Fat's latest is as thin as the buzz cut he sports in Bulletproof Monk.

    At least director Dwight Little (Free Willy 2) gives us enough B-movie speed to keep Orchid from becoming a fountain of aging.
    • 39 Metascore

    Has less substance and depth than its title.

    The movie grows progressively more routine in quarter-hour increments, eventually collapsing under the weight of its own insignificance.

    The new version has a few jolts, some occasionally effective smoke-and-mirrors photography and a lead (7th Heaven's Jessica Biel) who could teach a grad course on walking provocatively in blue jeans.

    • 50 Mike Clark
    Pulpy, fairly speedy but just the same old urban thing by its wrap-up.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    With tangy Fisher equaling the leads in a sometimes scene-stealing role as Moore's mom, the actors emerge unscathed. Brosnan's part, in fact, is among the actor's most convincing non-Bond characters.

    Almost nothing about Raising Helen rings very true, other than the camera's crush on Kate Hudson.
    • 38 Metascore

    Sports-satire misfire. [31 July 1998, p. 2E]

    At least 2 Fast is self-aware enough to know that it's trash, which is worth half a bonus point. Lack of pretension helps the viewer get over the fact that this is just another retread.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Likely one-week box office wonder.
    • 38 Metascore

    The movie gets a mild boost when her escape briefly takes it from just another crummy supernatural thriller into an OK escape melodrama, albeit one dependent on a whopper of an unlikely occurrence.

    A hopeless if harmless boxing picture whose principals just happen to wear uniforms outside the ring, Annapolis is set in a U.S. Naval Academy where no one ever seems to attend class.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    Truth be told, the movie isn't among the worst sequels of this summer.
    • 37 Metascore

    At least this movie seems more aware of its trashiness than "National Treasure" was. It's therefore freer to have some off-the-cuff fun the way Steven Seagal's more tolerable vehicles once did.

    Hurried, harried. [14 February 1997, pg.D4]

    Though the picture falls apart whenever the two leads aren't on screen together, you can argue that That isn't that inferior to its predecessor.

    After "Chocolat" and this, how about a moratorium on candy-centered comedies?
    • 36 Metascore

    Though the movie is more mediocre than abysmal, Ryan's recently banged-up filmography (remember In the Cut) could use what every fighter needs at ringside: a good cut man to stop the bleeding.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Mike Clark
    It's all fast and furious up to its draggy finale, and yes, it could spark a sequel. Prepare yourself for coming dread in 18 months: "A Man Together."
    • 36 Metascore

    The character played by lead Paul Giamatti is a dead-on Shyamalan protagonist: emotionally distanced and something of a train wreck.

    Terry Gilliam's “12 Monkeys” can teach The Thirteenth Floor a little something about how to have fun with time travel. And with one number less. [28 May 1999, Life, p.7E]

    Even at its best, the movie plays like a clip reel.

    At least Van Damme parodies himself just enough to avoid an all-out battle of the blands . At least director Roland Emmerich slyly allows supermarket Muzak to play during Lundgren's one big emoting scene. [10 July 1992, p.5D]

    What do you call a filmmaker who thinks imitating a screen benchmark can make up for emotions that are evading her actors -- Clueless.

    Anyone who pays to see it will certainly feel as if he has been clipped.
    • 35 Metascore

    Plays a little like a pacifistic variation on Bruce Lee's "Enter the Dragon."

    You can feel the movie going wrong in the first scene.

    Give Dozen a slight edge to the mournful "Yours, Mine & Ours" as a holiday season bottom-feeder, because Martin and Levy are better at slapstick than Dennis Quaid.
