    Darabont follows King's book fairly closely, allowing the audience to steep itself in the setting and characters slowly, like reading a good novel.

    It's a high-wire act without a net, and Benigni pulls it off with astounding grace and sensitivity.

    Craven creates his savviest and most frightening movie since the original "A Nightmare on Elm Street" by spoofing the horror cliches and simultaneously reinventing them to scare you all over again.

    The textures are detailed, the movements are realistic and the three-dimensional feel even improves on the humor -- you may think you've seen every good "Matrix" parody, but you haven't until you see this.

    A kicky little comedy that shows Quentin Tarantino's influence is alive and well in Japan.

    Isn't quite enough to save the Bond franchise -- but it does prove that 007 is Y2K-compliant.

    The gravity-defying harness maneuvers popularized in the U.S. with "The Matrix" -- ... look really cool, but seem out of place in a realistic gang-style action movie.

    Smith puts the soul in the machine of Series 7, producing an emotional power too real for reality-TV to handle.

    While The Messenger feeds our appetite for visual panache, it starves the soul.

    It's the hardships that led to Atlanta -- and that he faced after -- that make his story so compelling.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Sean Means
    A funny, frenetic and surprising comedy.
    • 46 Metascore

    A by-the-numbers action-comedy that is greatly enlivened by Lawrence's pugnacious, fast-mouthed style.

    LL Cool J... is downright scary -- a mix of coiled charm and underlying menace.

    Raucously funny.

    What Smith does best in Chasing Amy is write clever, raunchy and emotionally true-to-life dialogue.

    But it's the boy and the dog who make My Dog Skip resonate. The formula may be an old one, but it's still a good one.

    Parts of this three-hour World War II epic are brilliant -- especially the 40-minute sequence in which the sneak attack on Pearl Harbor is stunningly re-created.

    It's Lathan -- with her passionate performance, physical grace and drop-dead-gorgeous looks -- who makes Love and Basketball so entertaining.

    Gibson's raw energy and storytelling power in Braveheart are undeniable. If the film doesn't meet his ambitions, it's because he set the bar so high.

    Aerves up so much visual wizardry and thought-provoking ideas that even the inevitable Silver touch -- a finale with more bullets than the opening of "Saving Private Ryan" -- can't destroy the magic.

    Best of all are the supporting players. Everett (who played the Prince of Wales in "The Madness of King George") is smartly urbane, giving a polished refinement to the stereotypical "gay best buddy'' role.
