    Not even Halle Berry, emerging from the blue Caribbean in an orange two-piece -- can bring this thing to life.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Feels more like a postscript than a probing, provocative documentary.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A silly melodrama.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Cute, cloying and catastrophically predictable.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's simplistic and reactionary and designed to get hearts pumping but not minds thinking.
    • 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.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The moral of Taken 2? If you're going on a family vacation, be sure that the human-trafficking ring you put out of business in that far more satisfying and suspenseful thriller from a few years ago doesn't know how to find you.
    • 36 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Death Sentence's message - that vengeance is ultimately futile, spinning out a vicious circle of rage and hate - may be commendable, but there's nothing noteworthy about the way Wan, Bacon and their troops go about delivering it.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Owen is all right as the harried husband whose relationship at home has turned frosty, but the essential heat between him and Aniston is missing. The actress succeeds in shedding her "Friends" persona, but there's something missing here, especially as things get knottier.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It isn't frightening. Sometimes, in fact, it's laughable.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Virtually every set-up and set-piece in this extravagantly tedious adventure is misleading, or worse, irrelevant.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It's nothing if not predictable.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    If you want to see a Renaissance faire turned into an apocalyptic battlefield, this is the ticket.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Bleak and painfully earnest.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A long, tedious and convoluted follow-up to 2003's rollicking high-seas hit, The Curse of the Black Pearl, this second installment in the promised trilogy lacks the swash and buckle of the original. And then some.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Premonition is an odd little thing, with a protagonist in a protracted fugue state and a plot that doesn't know whether its coming or going. Or maybe it does.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Director Robert Schwentke and his writing team do their best to move things along. Actually, who knows if it's their best? Maybe they're suffering from Divergent fatigue along with the rest of us.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Shot like a Disney period piece (prettily, with spiffy props, shiny vintage vehicles, and costumes just back from the cleaners), Flyboys introduces its squadron the old-fashioned way: with character-establishing setups.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Rock Star sinks into a morass of melodrama.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Most of it plays like Jackass.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A woefully thin and pointless musical comedy boasting the no-chemistry coupling of Cuba Gooding Jr. and Beyonc?
    • 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
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    An epic work of self-indulgence and smug riffing, stringing together tropes from TV and screen westerns and closed-room whodunits, The Hateful Eight announces itself with all the pomp and circumstance of a mid-century cinema spectacle.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    An uninspired computer-animated feature that may satisfy undiscriminating pipsqueaks and nearly no one else, Planet 51 is a low-IQ E.T. in reverse.
    • 21 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Fuzzy, feel-good movie about baseball, babes and believing in yourself.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Promised Land is a frustrating film to watch. It should be better than this, smarter than this.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Full of clunky humor, battle-of-the-sexes musings and spicy accordion music, Everybody Wants to Be Italian is relentless - but not necessarily relentless fun.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The movie's main purpose seems to be to make audiences squirm uncomfortably. Yelp and shriek in armchair-clawing glee? Not likely.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Although its low-key realism is admirable, Eden doesn't really work: the long silences, the aching stares, the telling props, Breda's quivering blues, Billy's drunkenness, his distraction. There might as well be a sign stuck to the Farrells' front door: Dysfunctional family lives here.
