    Its patchy tone, plot, characters and sympathies make for a film that’s difficult to wholeheartedly endorse.
    • 68 Metascore

    Gently involving, but never quite engrossing, there’s a first draft shape to the picture that feels slight and makes for a minor work.

    Alluring and captivating, Thou Wast Mild and Lovely can’t ultimately overcome its undeveloped arty tendencies, but its hazy exploration of dread and desire is still unique enough to make an impression.

    The Peter Jackson-directed Hobbit sequel might be the more vigorous, action-packed, darker and more (superficially) engaging version of the series thus far, but that doesn’t actually mean it’s a keeper of any sort.

    While 'Les Mis' ends terrifically, it cannot make up for the largely uneven experience that comes before it. There is no doubt an abundance of passion and commitment in Les Miserables but when the musical isn't connecting emotionally -- which is at least half the time -- it's a lot of blustering sound and fury that could either use a dialogue break or an edit.

    Largely harmless and tame, but also shallow and uninvolving.

    The Internship might be the best worst comedy of the year thus far.
    • 57 Metascore

    Not particularly sophisticated, the searing intensity of revenge in The Equalizer is still occasionally arresting (and even entertaining) in its stylish hard-R violence.

    It's Middle America vs. big bad corporate America, and while the (not so) "bad guy" predictably finds salvation in salt-of-the-earth people, Promised Land often leaves a sour taste in your mouth.

    Has its moments, especially any time Streep is on screen, but as it strains on at an overlong two hours, the glitter of fairy tale movie magic diminishes, leaving only a pale shadow.
    • 54 Metascore

    Semi-flat with only a few jokes and emotional beats that land, the picture is often dull when it should be poignant.
    • 44 Metascore

    Unremarkable but occasionally enjoyable, Levy’s dramedy is pleasant enough, but it grows tired, losing focus by the end.

    Kill The Messenger hopes to solemnly lionize and exonerate Webb, but rarely does it reflect anything back to its audience other than reminding us how corrupt and unprincipled our system is.
    • 59 Metascore

    Respectfully presented, Unbroken is competently made and even has a sequence or two that’s impressive, but it’s ultimately very familiar and eventually draining.
    • 55 Metascore

    Admittedly heartbreaking and moving in its final moments, Hellion just can’t quite convince or coalesce its ideas of struggle, pain and fury in a meaningful or new way.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Rodrigo Perez
    Frustratingly uneven, Kelly & Cal is too glib and prosaic to truly be insightful or impacting.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Rodrigo Perez
    An uninspired narrative and disengaged performances ultimately keep persuasive deep feeling and captivation at a far distance.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 42 Rodrigo Perez
    It's not particularly funny or moving and it's terribly self-indulgent. Flamboyance and cartoonishness rule, there's hardly a moment of genuine emotion, and most overtures in that direction are superficial. As a picture ostensibly about love, revenge and the ugliness of slavery, Django Unchained has almost zero subtext and is a largely soulless bloodbath, in which the history of pain and retribution is coupled carelessly with a cool soundtrack and some verbose dialogue. Though it might just entertain the sh.t out of the less discerning.

    If your basic movie needs demand a little bit more -- logical premises; interesting, marginally original characters; dialogue that doesn’t reek of throaty, aspirational monologue after monologue -- Pacific Rim will leave you feeling hollow and wanting.

    Certainly possesses a lot of energy, but it's never harnessed or focused effectively. As a buddy comedy, all four leads have done better, and you already know what those movies are, and this one doesn't stand among them.

    The Wolverine wants to have it both ways: a dark character story and an action-packed superhero film. But it never reconciles the two notes, and thus becomes more and more atonal as it wobbles towards its symphonically jarring ending.

    It would be unfair and an exaggeration to say 'Part III' ends with a whimper, as there are a few moments to savor, but there's hardly a climatic bang and, sadly, absolutely nothing epic and explosive about this rather tepid and forgettable trilogy closer.

    Part escapist action-adventure, part would-be exhilarating quest of self-discovery, The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty isn’t so much a mess because it wants to be everything at once, but because it employs hackneyed and mawkish methods to achieve a false sense of joyfulness.

    An uninspired movie, The Drop would be utterly forgettable if it weren't for the fact that you’re left wondering how all this talent created something so unexceptional.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 42 Rodrigo Perez
    There’s a terrific ensemble at the heart of Magic Magic, including its talented director, but this psychological horror is only creepily superficial and has very little of anything insightful to say about people, its characters or its lead.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 42 Rodrigo Perez
    Wild never really earns its hard-fought struggle for redemption and personal reinvention.
    • 60 Metascore

    Decker is good at articulating sinister moods and unstable psyches, but anything resembling a cogent narrative is challenged.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 33 Rodrigo Perez
    A Good Day To Die Hard isn’t dead on arrival because that would suggest it has a pulse.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 33 Rodrigo Perez
    Forgettable and only mildly entertaining, 300: Rise of An Empire seals its own fate at the initial story level by being so deeply invested in its own mythmaking and playing super safe.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 33 Rodrigo Perez
    Pain & Gain fails at being an entertaining and ridiculously fun Michael Bay movie and curdles into something much more tone deaf and obnoxious.
