    The story is told in fractured time. This might not be a problem if his visuals were more fear-inducing.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Gets off to a worthy start, but falls apart about halfway through.

    A melodramatic import from Algeria, is so relevant in this age of global terrorism, it's a shame it isn't much better.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Mawkish and manipulative, the film isn't worthy of its widely praised German director.
    • 66 Metascore

    It's rather sweet and life-affirming, although the transformation from sophisticate to peasant happens too conveniently and quickly.

    These were people willing to take chances. Would that Trank had taken chances in telling their stories.

    Pleasant but lifeless love story.
    • 65 Metascore

    The subject is worth exploring - unfortunately, de Seve does so in a cut-and-dried manner that never explains why these two couples were able to stay together for so long.

    The Grudge offers a bit more exposition than did "Ju-On," but the plot is still wispy.

    If you're thinking of taking the kids to Bear Cub because the title sounds like something they'd enjoy -- don't!
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Campy and clichéd.

    This is Ebiri's first feature after directing four shorts. He shows talent, but shouldn't give up his day job just yet.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Touches on issues raised in "Bad Education," but without Pedro Almodovar's flamboyant elegance.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A flawed black comedy about two buddies who open a butcher's shop in a small Danish town.
    • 36 Metascore

    An old-fashioned soaper that will please or not, depending on a viewer's tolerance for schmaltz.

    If you think you've seen Imaginary Heroes before, you're right -- only it was called "The Ice Storm," or maybe "Ordinary People."

    If only its characters weren't such stereotypes.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Too-convenient coincidences hurt the movie's credibility. A melodramatic script best left to cable TV doesn't help, either.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Has some truly touching and funny moments. But it goes on for too long and bogs down in a surfeit of characters and unnecessary subplots.

    Technically competent. What it needs is an original script.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Pleasing to the eye, with lavish sets, ravishing costumes and two great-looking stars. Unfortunately, there is little else to recommend this overwrought, melodramatic bodice-ripper.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A soggy love story doesn't help this instance of style over substance.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film tends to be pretentious and melodramatic; and Grant, better suited to comic roles, gives a heavy-handed performance.

    Fox can't decide if Walk on Water is a terrorist thriller or a gay buddy story, and neither can the viewer.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The script is morose and unfocused - not to mention hard to believe and insulting to women.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    You can't fault the film's elegant look. But you have to wonder why Shakhnazarov, one of Russian's most experienced filmmakers, didn't take more care with the script.

    Gabizon has a great idea. But he ruins it by devoting too much time to colorful but unnecessary characters.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Strictly generic, it does little more than regurgitate the J-horror hits "Ringu" and "Ju-on."
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The charming cast...brightens up the screen, but the TV-sitcom script does them in.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A beautiful but empty-headed documentary.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Scenes of the probe are less successful. They feel contrived, and actress Lee Yeong-ae is not especially effective as Major Jang.

    You can't help wondering how prisoners who practiced Vipassana fared as free men.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Offers interesting views of ordinary life in Baghdad that Americans won't find on TV news. But the impact is lessened by the director's failure to let those who think the war is justified have their say.
