    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    There's nothing Disneyesque about this bomb except the forced levity of its musical score.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Has the disjointed feel of a bunch of strung-together TV episodes.
    • 24 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A thuddingly dull remake of the 1971 crime drama starring Michael Caine.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 22 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A collection of double entendres that would make a stevedore blush.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's a big stuffed turkey of a movie, just in time for the holidays.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A squirmy mix of therapy-session slogans, pop psychobabble, and lots of crying, yelling and pouting on the part of its two stars, who appear in various alarming hairpieces.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    War is hell, war is cruelty, war is toil and trouble, war is just a shot away. But is war a snooze? Well, by the time Enemy at the Gates has run its course — it sure seems that way.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The real problem is that there's nothing to George but the movie's props.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 38 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Yes, bestiality in a PG-13 movie. It's the end of life as we know it.
    • 16 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Has a dark, low-budget feel and an incongruous combination of self-consciously jokey patter and gross-out gore.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A knuckleheaded period piece.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Cold and stylish, slick and violent.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Fairy-tale-like musing on true love in cynical times.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Where Mike Figgis' film, with Nicolas Cage and Elisabeth Shue, bore deeply and darkly into emotional territory, The Center of the World turns out to be just as fake as its setting.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's old, old hat.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Far-fetched and utterly humorless, with a literally tacked-on conclusion (yes, more text on the screen), the only thing that's surprising about Unbreakable is how lame it is.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Despite some jaunty performances and its pretty Cotswolds locale, the film, in the end, is hardly a pleasure at all.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It has its moments of swaggering camaraderie, but more often just feels generic, derivative and done to death.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Utterly charmless - there's not even a glimmer.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's still a submarine movie, confined by the ship, the sea, and a convention-laden script.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Think Jerry Lewis doing Eminem, or maybe it's Eminem doing Jerry Lewis (or maybe it's Pauly Shore doing Vanilla Ice), and you've got B-Rad.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    If that sounds a lot like Rushmore, it is, except that the heart has been sucked out of the thing -- replaced by glib chatter, gratuitous Baudelaire references, and distracting product placement.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Boy, can Harvey Keitel be bad -- and not bad like "Bad Lieutenant," bad like bad acting.
    • 17 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A tad more character development would have been nice.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The folks at Disney's Touchstone Pictures would have been wiser, however, just to have forgotten all about this hyperactive farce.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's simplistic and reactionary and designed to get hearts pumping but not minds thinking.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Dumb, dumb, dumb - borrowing scare tactics from Hitchcock and other suspense masters, but forgetting basic story.telling essentials such as character development and logical exposition.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The film's intimations of bisexual romance have a certain innate drama that no amount of bad acting or cornball rugby matches can completely erase.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    xXx
    Less a movie than a collection of pretty cool action set-pieces, linked together with some seriously awful acting and dialogue that even Dr. Evil couldn't deliver with a straight face.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Shows glimmers of great drama, but jettisons too much essential cargo (character development, relationships, plot, common sense) in an effort to be lean and clean.
