    The overall result is superficial and deadly boring.

    There's certainly a good movie to be made about Muslim punk musicians in the US, but this isn't it.

    Maybe being able to look back in time is comforting for Block and company, but what makes him think complete strangers give a damn about his not-especially-interesting family? I certainly don't.

    If all terrorists were like these idiots, the US would have nothing to worry about.

    Nothing would help make this dud understandable.

    The dialogue is banal and the acting, especially Wortham's, is unconvincing. Even the sex and nudity, of which there is a lot, grows tiresome after a while.

    Japan's Takashi Miike has the formula down pat, but Eisener has no idea how to give violence a touch of class.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The praise for this static, overlong, stagebound work is a mystery to me.

    If there's a fresh idea in When Harry Tries To Marry, I couldn't find it.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    Little more than a rehash of old news.

    Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Brazil's reformist two-term president, gets the once-over-lightly treatment in Lula, Son of Brazil.

    Zhang Yimou, one of China's best-known filmmakers, deserves a great big lump of coal in his holiday stocking thanks to his ludicrous soap opera The Flowers of War.

    Yunus would seem to be a prime candidate for a movie about his work. Unfortunately, director Holly Mosher's by-the-numbers documentary Bonsai People isn't the answer.

    Features some good acting, but most of it doesn't ring true.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    There's little reason to see the claustrophobic Chronicling a Crisis unless you have a fascination with the Kolleks. Watching the vanity project is like being forced to sit through a friend's boring home movies.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 25 V.A. Musetto
    The documentary tells us little we don't already know and is overwhelmingly one-sided. It would make a nice TV infomercial, but certainly doesn't deserve a big-screen release.

    Most are exercises in sickening bad taste, with an emphasis on human bodily functions. The biggest stinkers? “T Is for Toilet” and “F Is for Fart.”

    Will there be a “Hatchet IV’’? I shudder to think about it.
    • 53 Metascore

    The Promise employs laughable computer effects and second-rate martial-arts fighting to tell the hard-to-figure story of a princess and her three lovers.
    • 38 Metascore
    • 12 V.A. Musetto
    The cinematography and sets look great, but the script is a bummer. It's overlong, overwrought and overblown.
    • 29 Metascore

    If there is anything positive in The Girl Next Door, it is the brave performance by Auffarth, who is in her early 20s. Other than that, there's little reason to see the movie. Unless, of course, you get off on watching the sexual exploitation of underage girls.

    If the script serves any purpose at all, it is to allow jocks to show off their buff bodies. They're hot, but not worth 12 bucks at the box office.
    • 25 Metascore
    • 12 V.A. Musetto
    Dumb and unwatchable.
    • 11 Metascore
    • 12 V.A. Musetto
    The toilet caper is the lowest point of a movie with many low points, including bad acting and a generic script.
    • 32 Metascore

    Peros probably intends Footprints to be an homage to Hollywood's Golden Age. But the script's so incoherent and the acting so amateurish that it makes the worst old-time Hollywood B-flick seem like "Citizen Kane."

    A chaotic mess.
    • 35 Metascore

    Director-writer Shimon Dotan takes this iffy story and makes it nearly unwatchable by jumping back and forth in time, using screens within screens and bouncing between color and black-and-white.
    • 53 Metascore

    Completely lacking in imagination and purpose, this vanity project might suffice as a home movie, but it's hardly worth the expense and bother of seeing it in a theater.

    Having root-canal surgery would be less painful than sitting through the martial-arts disaster Ong-Bak: The Thai Warrior.

    The dreadful acting, direction and script make Nowhere Man a nowhere movie.
