    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Ever-youthful in his looks and energy, Bridges now stands as one of Hollywood's great old pros, incapable of making a false move.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Sophisticated, sexy and stylishly decked out, Rob Marshall's disciplined, tightly focused film impresses and amuses.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Sad, compelling documentary leaves a few key questions frustratingly unanswered, but the raw materials here are sufficiently bracing.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    An insightfully observed and exceptionally acted ensemble piece precisely about what the title suggests.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    It's juicy, fascinating stuff, well orchestrated by Carion and finely thesped -- especially by Kusturica.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    In revisiting his darkly comic 1998 ensembler "Happiness," Todd Solondz may have made his best film with Life During Wartime.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    On balance, this is a meaty, strongly realized dramatic work of considerable accomplishment.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    A seamless, pulsating, dazzlingly visual revenge fantasy that stands as one of the most effective live-actioners ever derived from a comic strip.
    • 80 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Well-made and acted Coen Brothers remake lacks the humor and resonance that might have made it memorable.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    George Nofi pulls off a relative rarity in his feature film debut by creating a genuinely romantic fantasy suspense thriller.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Fassbender cuts a more prosaic, realistic figure as the tormented, romantic Rochester than did the screen's most celebrated performer of the role, Orson Welles, in the effective 1944 version.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Audacious, confident and fueled by youthful energy.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Cooler cars and more action follow Lightning and Mater as they mix it up with spies and Formula 1 racers in yet another Pixar winner.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Strong action, special effects and by far the most credible ape "performances" yet seen will spell box office to inspire chest-thumping in all markets.
    • 79 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Feels lavish by normal documentary standards and will have great appeal in such F1 hotbeds as Europe and South America.
    • 78 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    So it's a fun, if not exhilarating, ride, one sped along with the help of a wonderfully assembled cast.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    The Whale is a thoughtful, philosophical, political and ultimately sad documentary that ponders the impulses behind, and advisability of, intense interaction between human beings and another smart species.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Snappy, nasty, deftly acted and perhaps the fastest paced film ever directed by a 78-year-old, this adaptation of Yasmina Reza's award-winning play God of Carnage fully delivers the laughs and savagery of the stage piece.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    A perfectly diverting romp that happens to showcase some of the best 3D work yet from a mainstream animated feature. Colorful, clever enough, free of cloying showbiz in-jokes, action-packed without being ridiculous about it and even well choreographed.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    A smoothly engineered crowd pleaser.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    This surprising collaboration between director Clint Eastwood and "Milk" screenwriter Dustin Lance Black tackles its trickiest challenges with plausibility and good sense, while serving up a simmeringly caustic view of its controversial subject's behavior, public and private.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    This story of suffering and almost inadvertent humanitarianism is harrowing, engrossing, claustrophobic and sometimes literally hard to watch.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Best of all, von Sydow is absolutely wonderful, with the great veteran actor clearly relishing this very unusual role as he darts, skulks and, in a stealthy way, mugs across town. Without saying a thing, he dominates the middle part of the movie.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    "No Country for Young Kids" would be just as suitable a title for The Woman in Black, a hoot of an old-fashioned British horror film.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Robert De Niro and writer-director Paul Weitz find the most congenial material either of them has had in quite some time in Being Flynn.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Stars Chris Diamantopoulos, Will Sasso and Sean Hayes are on the money as Moe, Curly and Larry in a film containing more plot and sentiment than the boys' shorts ever had.
    • 69 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Whedon and his cohorts have managed to stir all the personalities and ingredients together so that the resulting dish, however familiar, is irresistibly tasty again.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Cohen employs a comic range that ricochets between wicked political barbs and the lowest anatomical farce, to often funny and occasionally hilarious effect.
    • 84 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    This is a Wes Anderson film -- more lightweight than some, possessing a stronger emotional undertow than others -- that will strike the uninitiated as conspicuously arch.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 80 Todd McCarthy
    Although Ridley Scott's 3D visual feast is no classic, the oozing alien tentacles hit all the right sci-fi horror notes.
