    Surrealism is one thing, but The Intruder appears so ill defined and random that it ends up looking simply inept.

    Filmed in permanent twilight with a static camera and no music, it is gloomy and unrewarding with an oblique and uninformative script.

    An embarrassment to all concerned, the film was written, directed and produced by Soderbergh for reasons that are not readily apparent.

    The track records of the performers are impeccable, but Issit has obviously never watched an awards show or similar event where comedy actors appear unscripted. Placing the weight of such a preposterous storyline on their improvisational shoulders was a disaster waiting to happen. And it happened.

    The sad result is a karaoke nightmare. Loud and pointlessly crude, the film takes the disintegration of a dysfunctional working-class family and gives it the song-and-dance treatment.

    Eden Lake has the trappings of a low-IQ thriller but it's really a contemptible tract feeding the prejudices of the U.K.'s rightwing tabloids that claim the country is overrun by teenagers wielding knives.

    The English term "shambolic" best describes a slow-paced, bloated and self-indulgent picture that combines science fiction, sophomoric humor and grisly violence soaked in a music-video sensibility.

    A gore fest aimed at indiscriminate action fans. Those interested in learning more about goings on in medieval history will probably find the splatter tedious and off-putting.

    Jonathan Lynn's lamentable black comedy Wild Target again shows that attractive and charismatic actors can do nothing to save a movie that's charmless, pointless and witless.
    • 33 Metascore

    Poorly structured and at times incoherent.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 20 Ray Bennett
    Witless, soulless and joyless, it displays its video game origins throughout.
    • 26 Metascore

    Ragged, uneven and potholed with some dire dialogue and performances.
