    The result is an odd, very personal film that the pop star-turned-director has made with tender loving care, but the results of the final final film are mixed.

    This PG-13 scare-fest is more psychological terror than blood and guts, and should satisfy-not repulse-young genre fans.

    Essentially a B-movie dressed up with A-level special effects, Legion looks spiffy but sounds bad with a lot of overwritten dialogue scenes and predictable action.

    Strictly for 6 year olds, this uninspired, one-joke comedy is full of too many misfired gags and weak comic setups to cross over to anyone whose head reaches above the seat back.

    An amusing turn from Steve Buscemi in the title role and some sporadically funny, off-beat dialogue provided by debuting writer/director Hue Rhodes make for a passable, if forgettable, little time passer.

    If so inclined for a breezy, violent time-waster audiences could do worse. Travolta sadly can do so much better.

    Don McKay just never seems to be able to blend its noir elements into a story that makes us care one way or the other.

    Offers very little new for those who saw the original.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 40 Pete Hammond
    Too introverted and gimmicky for its own good.

    The basic feeling you get out of this version is ‘been there-done that.’

    This Arthur feels flat and lifeless, especially when compared to its highly successful predecessor.

    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.

    Almost totally devoid of charm and genuine laughs despite the presence of star Kevin James and a wonderful veteran voice cast for the creatures.

    Sadly, the documentary just doesn't have enough coherent passages to make anything about this now seemingly ancient journey compelling for contemporary audiences.

    Even with a big name cast that includes three Oscar winners - Halle Berry, Robert De Niro and Hilary Swank - New Year's Eve is at best a pleasant diversion.

    The emotions are flat, predictable and forced when they ought to be romantic.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 30 Pete Hammond
    Letters to God is far too simplistic and pandering to find success outside of the targeted church-going family moviegoers it’s hoping to reach.

    Tackling his own original screenplay, Zack Snyder keeps his reputation for outlandish visuals intact but strikes out as a storyteller.

    • 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.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 20 Pete Hammond
    This is the kind of movie where the audience of extras orgasmically react after every song as if they were at a Bruce Springsteen concert instead of watching a bunch of kids who wouldn't make the cut in a junior high production of "Bye Bye Birdie."

    So thuddingly awful you won't crack a smile.
