    A techno-happy bumrush screaming the joy of never thinking twice about repeating things ad nauseam, and as loud as possible.

    Cute intentions and shaggy comedy only get you so far when the world is falling down around you.

    Snags the viewer's attention by lacing its martial-arts high jinks with a compelling weirdness.

    The feature itself remains a grotesquely enjoyable turn through the pulp-cinema wringer; hell, it could prove to be Mansfield's most enduring work.

    Glitz and speed help alleviate cavernous plot holes and rote gangsta misogyny, while the gleeful violence, pointlessly sappy lulls, and racial sparring are leavened a bit by capricious auto-critique.

    Detached performances and a murky sound mix further the sense of suspended animation.

    Sadly, most of Lombardi's movie is too doggedly mediocre to cut loose, overheated (and quite lovely) cinematography notwithstanding.

    Secret trials and buried atrocities are no match for a plucky (and rich, and svelte) young heroine, least of all Ms. Ashley Judd, who eyebrow-cocks her way through Carl Franklin's witless High Crimes.

    The coke-fried gibbons behind Bubble Boy came to a trailblazing conclusion: The ideal filmic oddity is white, male, and -- a mother's deception notwithstanding -- perfectly healthy.

    If you're in prison, it's best to stay there. 'Cause if you don't, as Blink of an Eye makes clear, you're fucked -- Outside the safety of your cell, a vicious world of cliché lies in wait to claim you.

    Ahearn's maddening game of connect-the-dots is content to collapse inward with honking, preening abandon.

    A cat-and-dog romantic squabbler so garbled you'd need a centrifuge to sort things out.

    Simply less campily moronic than its predecessor, a tired kill-by-numbers.

    Wright's "British" accent elicits the only shudders.

    High-concept cinema this ain't.

    If all-out headache-nausea-braindeath is what you crave, Whipped's available.

    This tale of a sprung tough looking to go straight is so familiar it's faceless.
