    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Most of the dialogue is in English, almost all of the story takes place in the U.S., and there is none of the kitschy fun that gives Bollywood flicks their charm.
    • 51 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    An overwrought Taiwanese soaper.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Can't overcome the familiar, soapy script.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film looks nifty, but the flat and unemotional English-language dialogue lessens its impact.
    • 60 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    It would have been funnier at half that length.
    • New York Post
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film's strong point is its stylish, arty look, carefully chosen composition and shadowy lighting.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Fails to deliver the dramatic punch.
    • New York Post
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Wolman gets his point across, but he does so in such a predictable, contrived and sappy manner that viewers aren't likely to care. And the final plot twist is a cop-out.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Earnest but not terribly original.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Kids will get off on Bugs! and then go home and have nightmares. Adults who accompany them may have to fight off sleep before they get home.
    • 34 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The movies of prolific and popular Japanese director Takashi Miike evoke many emotions -- nausea, excitement, awe, amazement, shock. One emotion they don't often evoke is boredom. Sad to say,Dead or Alive: Final is boring.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Juliette Binoche and Benoit Magimel have great chemistry together as the lovers, and the scenes of their lovemaking and frequent battles bring the movie to life. Outside of those moments, however, the film is too stagey, talky - and long - for its own good.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The documentary is much too conventional -- lots of boring talking heads, etc. -- to do the subject matter justice.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The plot of Attitude isn't exactly original and won't have you sitting on the edge of your seat. But Nilsson knows how to create a noirish mood, and some of the camera work is interesting, if pretentious.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Whaley gives an earnest performance, especially when he's articulating his frustrations during his monologues. But it's all relentlessly glum. The film, like Jimmy's routines, could use a few good laughs.
    • 55 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Bogdanich's film contends that the bombing of Yugoslavia by NATO in 1999 was the result of blunders by the West, and that the forces supported by the United States in Bosnia and Kosovo are allied with Osama bin Laden.
    • 18 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    For one thing, it goes on too long. But it looks good, the cast is perky.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The non-linear plot makes for confusion and, except for the inspired final shootout, the action sequences are mediocre.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    You know exactly how this thing is going to turn out before it's even half over.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Has a sexy cast and is gorgeous to watch -- but it takes more than that to make a movie worth seeking out.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Makes a convincing argument that the decades-old Cuban blockade has outlived its usefulness.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Can't decide if it's a martial-arts thriller or a sappy soap opera.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Carion, in his feature debut, means well, and his characters are lovable. But the plot is so predictable and sentimental that viewers are likely to lose interest before Sandrine and her goats walk off into the sunset.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    It's a touching story that deserves to be told. Unfortunately, Slesin's presentation is conventional and uninspired (lots of boring talking heads). These heroes deserve better.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The screen comes alive only at the end, when a frightening tornado destroys the seaside village.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Only marginally interesting.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    What could have been a biting dark comedy is, instead, uninspired and generic. The contrived, everybody's-happy finale just makes things worse.
    • 33 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Green's odd little movie is clever -- too clever, as it turns out.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The opening and closing scenes are scary and should please fans of the genre, especially at Halloween time.
    • 56 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The result is anti-Army propaganda rather than a balanced piece of reporting.
