    The actors are fine, but the material doesn’t give their talents much room to stretch.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    Plotless and illogical.

    The dreary, chug-along Australian film The Daughter offers a good but sadly wasted cast, obscured in the eye-rubbing mist of a foggy Down Under countryside and struggling to rise above the sludge of a basic soap opera with literary pretensions.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    The terrific cast is well worth watching, but everything else about this wayward movie mistake leaves you feeling just awful.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    Despite the presence of Shirley MacLaine, the moments of pleasure provided by The Last Word are far outnumbered by scenes of exaggerated, phony, sugary marzipan-like make believe.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    In the title role of the sometimes clever but mostly contrived Carrie Pilby, she (Bel Powley) taxes the boundaries of both.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    One only wishes they would put their talent and intelligence to better use than a formulaic and manipulative tearjerker that is really nothing more than a woman’s picture from a man’s point of view.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    The best thing here is the muted cinematography, which caresses the wet leaves and cloudy purple Tuscan skies like an old Italian master oil painting that comes to life. In the desultory Voice From the Stone, it’s the only thing that does.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    It’s meant to be a gritty slice of cornpone about revenge from a woman’s point of view, but the female protagonist who emerges is nothing but a cartoon.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    It is still Gerard Butler who keeps it all afloat, negotiating rough waters with superior skill.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    This one he (Pattinson) could have skipped. Vile and repulsive, Good Time is just under two hours of pointless toxicity.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    It’s a forgettable film, but what it says about the debilitating effect of technological abuse is sickening enough to make you think twice about upgrading your smartphone.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    It’s so sincere and admirable that it seems churlish to voice objections, but the fact remains that it isn’t very good.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    Part social melodrama, part violent crime drama and part send-up of family values gone haywire, it’s a curiosity that stubbornly fails to come alive until it’s almost over, and then it’s too late.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    The best thing about Last Flag Flying is that Ethan Hawke is not in it. Otherwise, it’s business as usual, and the business is excruciating to get through.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Rex Reed
    The new, inferior and totally unnecessary 2017 re-make is a sorry disappointment in which nothing measures up to the Sidney Lumet movie, including the train.
