    It's an emotional powerhouse of a film, an unforgettable and rewarding motion picture experience.

    Strictly for kids, but pure movie fun nonetheless,

    Big and brash with a fantasia of battles and chases thrown in to keep the young ones enthralled for its nearly two-hour running time.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    Stylish, globe hopping, action-packed comedy that starts at full blast and never lets up.

    Reiner has crafted the perfect summer film in The Magic Of Belle Isle. No, not one with a lot of noise and battles and comic book heroes, but rather a wonderfully laid back family story set around a gorgeous lake, about the everyday problems of real people from 7 to 70.

    This is a beautifully crafted and special movie to cherish, one likely to stay with you long after most of the so-called summer blockbusters have faded into memory.

    Like "The Blind Side," this is an inspiring and compelling true story. Harrison Ford is at the top of his game in this remarkable film.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 80 Pete Hammond
    This is the perfect summer movie and perhaps the best Pirates of them all.

    Back for a third go-around, the Step Up franchise is still as light on story as it is on its feet, but audiences looking to get a cinematic workout from the high-stepping action served up here could do a lot worse.

    Wilson is nicely restrained as a loving husband caught in a middle-aged crisis, while Sudeikis makes a great foil as a guy in over his head.

    A who's who of classic action stars light up the screen for pure combustible entertainment in Sly Stallone's The Expendables, a sort of "Dirty Dozen" meets "Inglourious Basterds"--and then some.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    The Losers not only looks like a low rent, buttoned-down version of The A-Team, but it also resembles a hybrid of other flicks like "Mission: Impossible" and "Inglourious Basterds."
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Pete Hammond
    Easygoing effort at times feels over-baked and too full of Perry’s now-trademarked melodramatics, but nevertheless should hit squarely at the target audience of the older African-American women that can’t seem to get enough of what this director dishes out.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 80 Pete Hammond
    The exploitation title may not do it any favors, but this biopic based on the incredible life journey of Sam Childers is gripping, inspirational and well told.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    In a brief supporting role Meg Ryan is also fine along with Brian F. O’Byrne and Will Patton. Shannon Kane is memorable as the prostitute Gere hooks up with.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    If so inclined for a breezy, violent time-waster audiences could do worse. Travolta sadly can do so much better.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 80 Pete Hammond
    Really a perfect family movie.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    This charmer about late middle-aged renaissance is pertinent for these times and a perfect summer comedy for grown-ups looking to escape robots and superheroes.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    What to expect from What to Expect When You're Expecting: laughs, heart and a terrific ensemble of actors doing what they do best.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 30 Pete Hammond
    Its endless parade of explosions, battles and general mayhem makes Michael Bay seem like Ingmar Bergman in comparison with Battleship director Peter Berg.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    Hop
    Fun for every member of the family, despite marketing that suggests it may be intended for only the youngest of the bunch.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Odd but endearing, The Good Heart has just exactly that--a good heart--mixed with a simplistic story that comes recommended as a showcase for two fine actors at the top of their game.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    For those looking for the rare romantic youth drama without vampyric overtones or other gimmicks, Remember Me should satisfy and it works as a much-needed change of pace for the talented Pattinson who remains one of the most watchable of our young stars.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    With a razor-sharp script and Jennifer Garner winning laughs in a nice change-of-pace role, this cynically funny and pointedly pertinent not-so-subtle spin on the national battle between right and left wing politics scores lots of comic bullseyes.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    The film, released in both 2D and 3D, delivers lots of freshly minted CGI'd action (eventually) but none of it grabs you. There's just something too synthetic about the whole enterprise - it's fantasy tipped over into fakery.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Full of high flying action, nifty monsters, valiant heroes, plotting villains and impressive CGI.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 60 Pete Hammond
    Rogen isn't the obvious choice for a comic book icon but he forces his personality onto this material with an ingratiating ease.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 70 Pete Hammond
    The script, from first time screenwriters Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson, takes a predictable premise and gives it surprising depth.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    The emotions are flat, predictable and forced when they ought to be romantic.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    Too introverted and gimmicky for its own good.
