    Looks and feels like someone else's better-made schlock.
    • 42 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    This is the sort of asinine action exercise that needs a star to blow up cars and leap from rooftop to rooftop with gusto.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Takes a leaf from the "Psycho" handbook and abandons its star for stretches here and there.
    • 74 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The Last King of Scotland joins the ranks of nightmarish innocents-abroad movies, from "Midnight Express" to "Hostel," where the disillusioned hero fights to return to civility.

    While Prisoners of Paradise gives us but an impression of Gerron's state of mind, the film does a powerful job of showing us how deflated, small, and desperate this boisterous man had become.

    Bland though it is, "Havana Nights" could be the start of a globe-bettering franchise -- and across history, too: "Dirty Dancing: Monticello Mornings"; "Dirty Dancing: Gaza Strip Afternoons."

    The best I can say about his (Diesel)performance is that it's charmingly terrible.

    Saw
    As long as Saw stays in that big, nasty bathroom, all we need to believe is the knot in our stomachs.

    This tired little movie got on my last nerve. If Driss is so charismatic and so full of ingenuity, why isn't he using any of that skill to help lift up his family?
    • 25 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It's a self-amused, self-conscious, seriously limp throwback to motorcycle westerns of the 1970s.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    As ponderous and overwrought as a film hogged by a couple of young hipsters named Roméo and Juliette can be.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The film feels long when it should be brisk, and it's bloated with stretches of hot, dead air. The racial kitsch goes nowhere.

    The only person in Don McKay having a better time than Shue is Melissa Leo, who plays Sonny’s insinuating housemate. She’s too much by half, in an Agnes Moorehead sort of way.
    • 27 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    To be endured rather than enjoyed.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It's pedestrian.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Well-meaning but trying documentary.
    • 68 Metascore

    You needn’t actually see Fracture to know that if the charge is acting that winks, these two are guilty.
    • 37 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Part soap opera and part thriller, and it has the unique characteristic of being both undeveloped and overwritten.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The film is overripe with erotic symbols.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Moreover, what the film lacks in temporal credibility, it amply makes up for in sheer rawness -- the rawness being literal.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    It doesn't belong at a megaplex. It should be playing on a Clear Channel station.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    The film plays fast and loose with the book, until its emotional depths, spiritual conflicts, and Waugh's discreet humor have been wrung out.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Only occasionally do the thrill of the game and the passion of its players come together. That said, these guys' nakedly neurotic enthusiasm keeps the movie from being a total jumble.

    New York, I Love You wants us to know that the city is a sexy, romantic, thrillingly random place where anything can go down. Sadly, two of those things are your eyelids.

    Eden is "Once" after two kids and 10 years of marriage have sucked the music out of life.
    • 43 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    A laughably disconnected hostage drama that rails against the perceived nightmare of inner-city public schools.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Watching what Howard has done with the book - covering up the lewdness, blunting the snobbery, and spackling the amazing plot holes - is dismaying. This adaptation has the stink of superiority about it.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Plays like a lost Rockford file.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 50 Wesley Morris
    Hollywoodland has scraps of old movie glamour. It also has shades of later movies that sullied all that class and refinement with a lurid touch, namely Roman Polanski's "Chinatown." But that's all Hollywoodland is: scraps and shade.

    Technique is all you have to admire. There's nothing underneath the formal exercise. The film's coyness about what's happening is cheap.
