    • 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.

    A toe-tapping, booty- shaking look at Cubans' love of music that gets bogged down in political thoughts that go unexplored.

    A flawed black comedy about two buddies who open a butcher's shop in a small Danish town.

    Strictly generic, it does little more than regurgitate the J-horror hits "Ringu" and "Ju-on."

    There aren't many surprises as the story unfolds in soap-opera fashion, with a happy ending for all concerned.

    The premise has potential, but there's no follow- through. And there's no actual zombie mayhem; we learn everything secondhand -- from phone calls to the station.

    You know exactly how this thing is going to turn out before it's even half over.

    The acting is super -- these guys know how to be sweet and disgusting -- and the story provides its share of laughs. But after a while, the one-note movie, directed by Felix van Groeningen, grows tiresome.

    Brisseau obviously aims to shock - and he does. Now shocking is A-OK with me - but only if it's part of a something bigger. Exterminating Angels is beautifully lensed and acted, but it lacks substance.

    Okuda's debut behind the camera, Shoujyo, is a dirty old man's delight: schoolgirls galore in short skirts or, in Yoko's case, nothing at all. That may be enough for some viewers, but not for those who insist on a story that gives substance to its characters.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Suffers from a lack of focus and a sitcom script.

    Corddry leads a game cast, but the film is rough around the edges...It would play better as a TV sketch.

    The opening credits of Gangster's Paradise note that it was "inspired by real events." It would be more accurate to say that the film was inspired by Brian De Palma's "Scarface" and similar fare.

    The movie is a pleasant way to spend time in the dark, especially for Francophiles, but it won't leave any lasting impression.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    This new movie features stylishly filmed and choreographed battles. But in between the set pieces is a lot of sentimental blather that slows down the film. More action, less talk should be the order of the day, but it isn't.

    Brabbee, artistic director of the Nantucket Film Festival, is to be commended for her dedication to this project, but the film isn't hefty enough for a theatrical release. Public TV would be a better showcase.

    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.

    If you think you've seen Imaginary Heroes before, you're right -- only it was called "The Ice Storm," or maybe "Ordinary People."
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Can't overcome the familiar, soapy script.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The film is one-sided and at times unfocused, but it makes a lot of sense politically.

    Earthwork is best left to TV.

    A melodramatic import from Algeria, is so relevant in this age of global terrorism, it's a shame it isn't much better.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    A soggy love story doesn't help this instance of style over substance.

    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    The siblings react with humor and horror to what they discover. So will many viewers of this self-indulgent but engaging work.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Fails to deliver the dramatic punch.

    May be momentarily entertaining, but don't expect anything profound from the lightweight saga.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Good-natured, lightweight fun, although clichéd and more suited to DVD and cable than the big screen.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Has a few things going for it -- a winning performance by Luchini and a small role by Pedro Almodóvar favorite Carmen Maura. But these talented folks can't compensate for a plot that strains credulity and lacks badly needed social bite. Wait for the DVD.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 50 V.A. Musetto
    Less an adventure yarn than a character study of two old guys with fading memories and improbable dreams.

    Medina has taken a series of vignettes and fashioned them into a feature film as aimless as Luciano’s life. There’s no buildup or payoff; still, Hendler’s laid-back performance makes Medina’s film worth seeking out.
