    This lightweight thriller has an enjoyable premise.

    You might not want to pay top dollar for The Skulls, but at the right price, it delivers.

    It contains, perhaps, one pinkie-toe bone of surprise in its skeleton of cliche.

    Looks plain silly without an appropriate tone or sustaining context.
  5. 25
    So ludicrous in so many different ways it achieves a kind of forlorn grandeur.
  6. Full of conspiracies, all The Skulls lacks is a brain.

    Plummets into the realm of ludicrous failure.

    The concept of secret societies has captured people's attention since...forever? "The Skulls" is no different, with its intrigue and a bit of romance. Without giving away plot details, this movie was far more entertaining than the Metacritic score suggests. I actually own this on DVD and would definitely buy this on blu-ray.

    Most importantly... RIP Paul Walker.
