  1. So what's wrong with Joshua? Two things: The audience is ahead of the movie, and the movie never catches up.

    To lump in this smart, subtle, deviously effective thriller with "The Omen" or "The Good Son" is neither fair nor entirely accurate.
  3. 83
    There's drama here, and moments of genuine tension, but there's fun, too, which is the point of a movie like this. To Ratliff's credit, he never lets the considerable craft get in the way.
