    The gimmick behind this excruciating propagandist movie about the US special forces' war on terror is that it features not actors but actual Navy Seals.

    He's done it again. M Night Shyamalan has done it again. Again. Done it. Again. He has given us another film for which the only appropriate expression is stammering, gibbering wonder that anyone can keep making such uncompromisingly terrible movies with such stamina and dedication.

    A jaw-droppingly self-indulgent, shallow, smug if mercifully brief feature with a plot that looks like the outline for a pop video.

    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    A deafening, boring action pile-up that is more Call of Duty than Robocop.

    This film is one long biopsy of pure horror: the tumours of sentimentality and bad acting metastasise everywhere, and Bernal, in particular, is horrendously bad.

    Director Niels Arden Orpev was in charge of the original "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," starring Rapace, but fails to create a revenge thriller with anything like the same focus.

    It's leaden, boorish and dull.

    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    There is a creepy, undead feel to this lumbering comedy set in the offices of Google, and Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn have a distinct Baron Samedi look in their eyes.

    Romcom fans deserve something with more heart.

    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    It is a film so awe-inspiringly wooden that it is basically a fire-risk. The cringe-factor is ionospherically high.

    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    It goes on for ever without getting properly started: an epic of depthless self-indulgence.

    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    It is put together with technical competence, but is entirely cliched and preposterous, and it implodes into its own fundamental narrative implausibility.

    Poor Princess Diana. I hesitate to use the term "car crash cinema". But the awful truth is that, 16 years after that terrible day in 1997, she has died another awful death.

    • 20 Peter Bradshaw
    A strained jeu d'├ęsprit which is smug, precious, carelessly constructed, emotionally negligible, and above all fantastically annoying. It's a terrible waste of real acting talent.

    The two adjectives in the title should be replaced with "annoying" and "unendurably tiresome".

    A real Christmas miracle would cause every copy of this film to spontaneously burst into flames.

    As a straight procedural, this might have worked if Egoyan did not try the audience's patience and insult their intelligence with how utterly implausible his drama is. But line by line, scene by scene, it is offensively preposterous and crass.

    All the material about social media looks forced and behind the curve, and nothing about the movie is really convincing or entertaining on any level, making it valueless as drama or satire.
