    If nothing else, The Inbetweeners Movie proves that raunchy comedies about horny teens aren't just an American quirk.

    The film is implicitly advocating a New Age or holistic perspective, with a dollop of Eastern religion added for good measure. (The title is Sanskrit meaning "wheel of life.")

    Not up to Ozon's standards.

    In the end, all the bitterness seems like window-dressing to disguise a trite story.

    Do Not Resist amounts to little more than a grab bag. Viewers looking for depth will have to find it elsewhere.

    It's the story of a young married couple undone by a family tragedy, but the film loses its way, at one point turning into a political harangue.
    • 65 Metascore

    A fast-moving Congolese crime thriller loaded with graphic sex and violence - basically an exploitation picture. But it's hard to surrender to the gritty flow because the story is stitched together from such crushingly familiar bits.

    There’s lots of eye candy, and the pace is fast, but somehow the movie falls short. You’re forgiven if you get the idea that “Scorch Trials” suffers from “middle movie” fatigue.

    Skillfully made and offering moments of great power, the French Canadian drama Incendies nevertheless overplays its hand, piling tragedy on tragedy until we feel browbeaten with misery.
    • 67 Metascore

    By the end you can't help but wonder whether it was a good idea to keep the youngsters under camera scrutiny for more than 12 years.
    • 47 Metascore

    Despite highly enjoyable moments and the welcome presence of Kate Winslet, even sympathetic viewers will be put off by the movie’s bewildering variety of genres and tones.
    • 51 Metascore

    The entertaining work by Spacey and Pepper is a good thing because the film has problems, including an utter lack of subtlety.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Lacks the finesse of other puzzle films.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    There's some amusement in watching Michael Cera play an unalloyed jerk, but in the main this trifling film shuffles by with a few low-key jokes and observations, building to an abrupt moment of seriousness.

    Francis Ford Coppola's Jack has its affecting moments, but in the end illustrates the pitfalls of the "concept" movie, the kind you can boil down to a one-line hook.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    At 126 minutes the movie is excruciatingly long, but it is still too short to pack in all the subtle changes in character he means but fails miserably to convey.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Has compelling stretches, but the film's formal concerns overwhelm the storytelling.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Like Someone in Love is best suited to viewers already familiar with this extraordinary filmmaker's better work.
    • 54 Metascore

    Lane, with his extensive stage experience, is acerbic, profoundly cynical and endlessly disgruntled. As the foil, Evans strike the right comic nice-guy note; he has fun with the character's sweetness and refuses to degrade him.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    While recognizably Ceylan's work, is more of a genre piece - a noirish suspense film - and less successful.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Tired comedy.

    • 59 Metascore

    The film is sprinkled with “f” bombs, which fails to disguise that the enterprise is based on a surprisingly dated notion of what’s racy. Also, you simply may not find Bridget quite as adorable as the filmmaker’s clearly believe her to be.

    With a handful of blackly humorous jolts and some game performances by a good cast, Thin Ice is a watchable, if not terribly original, piece of Midwestern noir.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    It's funny in spots if you can tune out the Farrellys' ultra-crass jokes - along with any memory of the first movie.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Surprisingly pedestrian.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    You feel the full weight of the movie's three hours, since the filmmakers only had 90 minutes' of plot.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Painfully sincere but tired.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    Despite its worthy subject, this feature by veteran Brazilian director Bruno Barreto has a bluntness that's at odds with Bishop's personality and work.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    It seems like another misstep - the story just doesn't hold up to Ritchie's treatment.
    • San Francisco Examiner
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Walter Addiego
    The picture is a relentless blast of color and movement that's based on the old TV show, but boils down to a supercharged version of old-time Saturday-afternoon movie serials.
