    Part of the problem lies with the venue. When it comes to standup, bigger is not better. One-man shows work better in smaller spaces. In his bid to proclaim his giant stature as an entertainer, Hart loses himself.

    While it's not entirely successful, this stylish shocker is a big step up from the earlier film.

    The film is surprisingly engaging. It’s fun.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 63 Tirdad Derakhshani
    The film is too formulaic and far too prone to melodrama, with outsize emotions as ridiculous as its comic-book villains.

    At 120 minutes, The Love Witch is too long. Biller has too much material on her hands and too many non sequitur scenes.

    It also has great momentum, good set pieces, and so much frothy nihilism it’s just plain fun.

    It's a small, intimate chamber piece with beautiful camerawork and gorgeous art direction ... until it loses its way in a wrongheaded bid for sci-fi greatness.

    An enjoyable (but long) romcom that's like "Meet the Parents" on LSD, laced with rat poison.

    If you’re looking for great, realistic action, it’s just the thing. Berg is a masterful action director, and his Patriots Day is every bit as engaging and exciting as "Lone Survivor" and "Deepwater Horizon."

    Gold never settles on a coherent point of view. Is the film supposed to be a critique of capitalism or is it a Horatio Alger story about a self-made man preyed upon by wall street?

    The Possession has none of the suspense that made Bornedal's morgue thriller "Deathwatch" such shuddering good fun. And despite the absurdly overwrought Bernard Herrmann-esque score, it has very few genuine shocks.

    Not one of Sparks' best flicks (The Notebook is quite good) Safe Haven is marred by film cliches. It has an alarming number of throwaway montage sequences.

    Love conquers all. Sadly, Yoo's film does not.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    An uneven, mildly amusing, and highly derivative flick featuring a wonderful, quirky cast as a crew of art thieves who run a complex scam on the art world, and on each other.

    It's hard to know whom to blame for this futile exercise: Morris or Rumsfeld.

    A tediously faithful remake of French filmmaker Luc Besson's terrific 2004 international hit "District 13," the Besson-produced Brick Mansions might have been mildly interesting had it been made a decade ago.

    The writer-director has the talent to dig deep and lay bare the assumptions behind our idea of justice and our notions of right and wrong. In The Devil's Knot, he settles for an encyclopedic, if skin-deep, presentation.

    Like other entries of its pulpish ilk, the picture packs lots of violence, a fair bit of gore, and plenty of cheap scares.

    This story truly is inspirational and a lesson about civic responsibility. However, it makes for little more than a TV movie or a straight-to-video snack.

    While it misses the mark most of the time, director Hilary Brougher's film has a promising story, an impressive cast, and occasional moments of grace.

    Two Night Stand, is a clever, if uneven, romcom about Generation Y's conflicted, paradoxical views of sex and love. Featuring strong dialogue and terrific performances, the film has moments of near-brilliance, but falls apart with a lame, conventional ending.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    A weak "Toy Story"-esque animated film for preschool kids made with little imagination, little art, and even less soul.

    Firth is brilliant as a preternaturally patient man - every day he has to tell her the same exact story. But he has a creepy way about him. Is it love that drives him, or something darker?

    On many levels, Kingsman has the makings of a sure-fire hit. Yet, this is one spy story even the most dedicated addicts of the genre would do well to miss.

    A deeply disturbing, intimate, and not unsuccessful look at 10 years in the life of a young boy, Harlon, who grows up to become a Columbine-style killer.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    It falls short of the mark, even as it hits every one of the genre's conventions.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Mildly enjoyable despite its basic mediocrity.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    One of the most uncinematic pieces crafted by an otherwise fine stylist, Cymbeline befuddles with its ineffective blocking and lack of art direction.
    • 30 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    Not a great film. Or particularly good. In fact, it's fairly bad as B-movies go.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 Tirdad Derakhshani
    But there's not much here: The characters are paper-thin, and the action is slow, at times agonizingly so.
