    Unfocused lapses aside, though, the film is intriguing and discomforting in equal measure, using its brief running time to frame thoughtful, boundary-pushing questions.

    Australian writer-director Kim Mordaunt doesn't always succeed at balancing the sentimental, the political and the ethnographic, but at its strongest the story is a seamless melding of history's dark undertow and a child's indefatigable optimism.

    • 70 Sheri Linden
    It's the loosely connected encounters of the early sequences that are remarkable in their poignancy and humor.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    With its grasp of suspense and character, it hits the mark as a portrait of openhearted determination that's devoid of desperation.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Audiences will find themselves face to face with their own prejudices, assumptions and, perhaps, squeamishness.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Keener's performance riveting.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    With charm to spare, Valentin fuses nostalgia and humor in an episodic story whose ultimate focus is the birth of a writer.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Although the film's jabs at TV journalism are nothing new, Carrey brings to the material the sense of someone who's too smart for his work yet loves it -- the essence, perhaps, of being a ham.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Bears a wealth of imaginative riches and a signature mix of outre personalities and gadgets.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    However masterful, the first-rate stunt work, effects, action cinematography and cutting (by no less than three editors) lose impact through sheer repetition.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    This culture-clash romantic comedy, scripted by Elizabeth Hunter and Saladin K. Patterson, goes exactly where you'd expect, but helmer Lynn, a comedy vet, gets it there with such infectious energy that you don't much mind the story's predictability.

    Awash in nostalgia, "Lions" combines a gentle coming-of-age story with swashbuckling fantasy. While it lacks a necessary tension in its establishing scenes and might be too soft for those who prefer grittier fare.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Those not in the smackdown frame of mind will find an overabundance of head-butts, body slams and pounding aural effects -- this is a definite contender for loudest film of the year -- but also will discover instances of innovative, spectacular stuntwork and, though the comic interplay often falls flat, a story with heart.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    An intensely realized, beautifully shot drama.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The carefully laid foundation of suspense and dread, with its symmetries and crisp dialogue, is squandered in a clumsy pileup of credulity-stretching cataclysmic events.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Has a rollicking time reaching its foreseeable conclusion.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The cast acquits itself well, with the Rock evincing a quiet balance between humor and brawn.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Sharp, vivacious comedy.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Marshall's predilection for romantic fairy tales is much in evidence, though the comedy registers in a lower key than it did in such hits as "Pretty Woman" and "Runaway Bride."
    • 59 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Cunningham's 1990 novel makes an assured, if not entirely satisfying, transition to the big screen in this terrifically acted exploration of the bonds that transcend traditional notions of family.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    This tale of a lovable jerk who learns the meaning of sacrifice should capitalize on its star's sitcom popularity to hit one out of the park.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    The story feels a bit more episodic as it proceeds, but for most of the two-hour running time it flows at an earthbound tempo, thanks to Trojan's assured, unobtrusive direction.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Terrific performances by Anthony LaPaglia, Eric Stoltz and Caroleen Feeney infuse this well-written comic drama with a realistic ease.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    A quietly celebratory film about music and human kindness.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Adapting the novel by Zhivko Chingo, director Trajkov and his co-scripter, Vladimir Blazevski, have created a searing memory piece. Suki Medencevic's widescreen cinematography illuminates a shadow realm halfway between heaven and hell.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Crossing the life-death divide, Reese Witherspoon and Mark Ruffalo are a winning pair in this smart and tender comedy.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Avoids easy shtick and saccharine conclusions, opting instead for character dynamics that the two leads deliver with consummate skill.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Until the lean script by Baier and Laurent Guido takes some unconvincing turns in the late going, the film is a credible portrait of alienation.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    Actor-turned-helmer Bill Paxton has fashioned solid family entertainment in this well-cast feature.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 70 Sheri Linden
    An appealingly low-rent, if not earth-shattering, 26th century "Star Wars" with faint glimmers of "Blade Runner," "Buckaroo Banzai" and "The Manchurian Candidate" for good measure.
