    A sloppy, indifferent action movie with a sadistic edge and a sour hypocrisy.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 33 Sean Axmaker
    There's no slow descent into ruthless warfare and we get neither the giddy charge of their bad behavior, nor the guilty sting of complicity in their ruthless desire. All that's left is an idea still in search of a script.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 33 Sean Axmaker
    Isn't merely bad, it's utterly flavorless and the filmmakers are either too lazy or too cynical to even pretend there's a story behind Lawrence's 21st century homeboy shtick in 14th-century garb.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Overlong, unscary, poorly paced and banally written.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    While too bland and stupid to be offensive, Never Back Down spouts a hollow message of nonviolence while celebrating the brutal satisfaction of beating the crap out of someone.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Tired and glib, it tries to milk humor from the sniping, sass and simple disrespect of its unpleasant traveling companions.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Ultimately this soppy Pacifier sucks.
    • 32 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Not faithful enough to be an adaptation, too misguided to be considered an interpretation, and not funny enough to be a parody, this film would do well not to advertise its inspiration.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Stephen Brill's flat-footed script begins as an idiot comedy with the gross-out gags of a Farrelly brothers film.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    All that's left are cute animals with animated mouths spitting out fitfully inspired one liners, sophomoric sexual innuendo and enough poop gags to last a lifetime.
    • 14 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Coupled with the flavorless dialogue of the inane script and a leading man who registers all the glow of a black hole, there's nothing to anchor this mindless mess of a film.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    This isn't a movie, it's a marketing ploy. Would you like a plush Garfield toy with that popcorn?
    • 62 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    A potentially interesting idea deflated by the absurd proclamations of an arch screenplay and smothered under the ponderous gravity of M. Night Shyamalan's dreary direction.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    The utter lack of tension or suspense is as dumbfounding as Hunt's blender approach to editing, which purees action scenes into incoherent mashes of image confetti.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    The most insipidly innocuous film ever made about facing mortality and living it up before passing away, The Bucket List has as much poetry and poise as its clumsy, clunky title.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Yet another raunchy, gross-out farce, this one about smart-alecky city boys who have wacky adventures while exposing themselves in -- I mean to -- the great outdoors.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    The slapdash comic flailing of screenwriter and TV scribe-turned-director Ed Decter is only compounded by a script so disconnected you have to wonder if pages were lost on the way to the set.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    It's phony and forced, but mostly it's just silly. If there was once a satirical edge to this thriller, it's been programmed right out.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    There is no stylistic thrill to this blunt object of a callous action film. It's content to bludgeon the audience into numb resignation.
    • 20 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    It's bad enough that the lazy script substitutes goofy situations for actual gags, much of which falls flat under Rob Pritts' plodding direction, but Corky Romano finally sours in cynicism and hypocrisy.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Glib, sense-numbing action fantasy.
    • 35 Metascore

    Not just a bad film, Hannibal Rising is downright dull, which is a far worse crime.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    The humorless and self-important execution attempts an operatic scale but only succeeds in sinking the remnants of the story's integrity. By the time it makes landfall, this incoherent production has blown itself out.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    There is no histrionic excess or crackpot camp, only hoary sentiment, the puppy-dog cuteness of the mentally handicapped, and the proposition that the "cure" for lesbianism is one good man brave enough to get in touch with his inner cow.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    The script drowns out its ideas with arch melodramatic devices and ridiculous twists while Babbitt smothers even the daylight scenes in an oppressive gloom.
    • 23 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    Redfield's fans will rejoice, if only to see the beloved novel illustrated on the screen, no matter how tediously. The rest of us probably should stay away.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    A girlie romantic comedy with tired slapstick pranks but not an ounce of self-respect or intelligence.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 25 Sean Axmaker
    But as an artist, von Trier's contempt for humanity is becoming harder to hide with stylistic flourish. He doesn't even try here, and his arrogance is topped only by his misanthropy.
    • 36 Metascore

    Who is Cletis Tout? Who cares?
    • 38 Metascore

    Dracula, who, as played by Dominic Purcell, has all the dark charisma and burning threat of a baked potato.
