    • 40 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Catastrophically overdone.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Around the Bend doesn't inspire one to care.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    It isn't frightening. Sometimes, in fact, it's laughable.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The trouble with Alfie - apart from the film's existence, and the wrongheaded idea of remaking a minor classic - is that not a soul is likable.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A sappy excursion to Edwardian days.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Cute, cloying and catastrophically predictable.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The film never gives you a real sense of what drove Darin on, fighting a heart ailment (from childhood rheumatic fever) and fighting an industry and press that wanted to pigeonhole him.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A handsome Holocaust melodrama hobbled by a transparent and cartoonish script.
    • 22 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Has its compelling moments, and its playfully inventive ones, too.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Stiff but handsome film, there's little sense of the conflict and complexities that drove Alma Mahler.
    • Philadelphia Inquirer
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Has a low-key tone that works in its favor for a time.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    "Kill Bill" without irony, and without Quentin Tarantino's flair for cool dialogue and chop-socky action (and without Uma Thurman, for that matter), Elektra is a pretty-looking, pretty dull adaptation of the Marvel Comic about a dishy, deadly assassin.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The big shift between Carpenter's B-movie and filmmaker Jean-Fran├žois Richet's comic book-style remake is that instead of a troop of bloodthirsty gang members encircling the precinct, the bad guys here all look like good guys.
    • 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.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A creaky, cliched, feel-good family drama about learning to stop and smell the roses - and planting a vegetable garden while you're at it - Uncle Nino is shameless, sappy fare.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The film feels long, the editing is choppy, and the plot strands are at once convoluted and cliched.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    For the casual viewer who feels like maybe all the Sith hoopla is worth checking out, well, it's like tuning in to the season finale of "24" without having watched a minute of its lead-up episodes.
    • 50 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The Island could be read as a metaphor for societal ills (commercialization, conformity, pharmaceutical overkill) if it weren't so shamelessly dumb. And dumb it is.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Manages to rocket along at full speed. At the same time, however, the movie feels as if it's not going anywhere at all.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Alternately tedious, cliched and unintentionally funny.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    For high-speed action, eye-popping locales, and chopsocky fight-fests galore, watch The Transporter - on video.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A silly melodrama.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A strange mix of showbiz whodunit and soft-core eroticism, with a couple of fine actors - Kevin Bacon and Colin Firth - wandering around stunned and stoned-looking, as if someone slipped them a mickey.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    The Weather Man belongs to a school of earnest, artsy Hollywood flicks that includes the Michael Douglas-goes-bonkers "Falling Down," and a lineage that goes back to revered 1970s pics like "Five Easy Pieces."
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Chicken Little is entirely lacking in anything "Disneyesque."
    • 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.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    A lush, lovely snooze-fest.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Jeremy Irons slithers on board with a haughty sneer and papal vestments, playing Bishop Pucci.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    Shot in Panama, with a cast of local Indians and B-tier Latino and Anglo actors, End of the Spear has neither the marquee heft nor the artistic gravitas of "The New World."
    • 45 Metascore
    • 50 Steven Rea
    For a while, Firewall whips up the accordant dollops of suspense and dread, but it's not long before the timely issue of identity theft takes a backseat to old-fashioned Hollywood villainy, unnecessary (and nonsensical) red herrings, and STUFF THAT DOESN'T MAKE SENSE.
