    Lacks emotional depth and sweep -- but the movie still delivers the type of rousing, large-scale adventure that marked the best films of its kind

    Although the characters are all cartoons, Ritchie still invests them with enough personality to make them stand out as real people, which is what makes RocknRolla much more involving than your typical Tarantino ripoff.

    Cassel, who won a Cesar (France's equivalent to the Oscar) for his performance, invests the character with a grounding of humanity and honor that imply there are certain lines even Mesrine would never cross.

    Not all of the characters in the movie get just and fair send-offs, but Virzi’s stylish picture argues that’s the price we pay when a capitalist society trains us to place our own selfish interests above everything else. It’s a rat race that ultimately has no winners.

    Weiner tells a different story — a riveting portrait of a man so consumed by hubris and confidence that he is utterly blind to his failings.

    Initially sounds perverted but ends up being just the opposite.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    Humpday sells its admittedly far-fetched premise by illustrating how men often can't help but behave like stubborn children in the company of their friends -- even when the stakes are raised to ridiculous levels.

    Mud
    You come away from Mud fondly remembering those two boys, especially Ellis, who has taken his first steps toward adulthood and discovers it suits him just fine.

    The result is a rare live-action Disney movie that merits comparison to its beloved feature-length cartoons.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie is so cheerfully, furiously relentless, its contagious silliness wears you down.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A brisk and lively cinematic Cliff's Notes of the 2005 nonfiction bestseller that made the lofty promise to reveal "the hidden side of everything."
    • 80 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie leaves you feeling angry and frustrated anyway. And justice for all? Hardly.

    Will Noah anger some rigid purists and scholars because of the liberties it takes? Perhaps. But the point to take home is the message the movie leaves you with, which works regardless of your faith (or lack thereof). Humans are inherently flawed. How we deal with those defects is what truly matters.

    What ensues is a love story ringed by barbed wire and etched in blood with the jagged neck of a broken beer bottle.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    By film’s end, everyone has been transformed for the worst. Heli is a troubling and upsetting picture, a portrait of a broken country that seems to be beyond repair and a depiction of how violence and corruption, when left unchecked, taints saints and sinners alike, sparing no one.

    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The film seems simple and facile at a glance, but these characters and their dilemmas stay with you. These days, any of us could suddenly be Larry Crowne.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    This long, gorgeous, occasionally maddening movie is the work of a hopeless romantic who knows there is no pain as bittersweet -- or as haunting -- as the pain of a broken heart.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A thoroughly satisfying and engaging children's picture that never forgets those kids probably didn't get to the theater by themselves.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    The movie has an exhilarating energy that is never exhausting, and the filmmaker’s trademark excesses, although toned down, are still at play. The meek should be wary; for everyone else, it’s party time.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    A savage, insane movie - in the best way possible.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    What Sunshine State lacks in momentum, it makes up for with a Dickensian sprawl of characters -- 50 in all -- who possess the depth and humanity that has become a Sayles trademark.
    • 86 Metascore

    Even by Miyazaki standards, Ponyo makes less narrative sense than it should, and the pat ending is a bit of a letdown.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 75 Rene Rodriguez
    With Moore’s formidable, Oscar-bound performance, the picture transcends the usual cliches of the genre to become something far more moving and profound.

    Joy Ride is also surprisingly funny, thanks mostly to Zahn.
