    The film's length and muddled message will likely keep it from reaching much of an audience, even within the presumed Latino faith-based target.

    The more pressing affliction in Pascal Laugier's film is the absence of chills, logic and coherence.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 20 Critic Score
    Sinister is pretty much everything to hate about modern horror in one mixed bag, a ramshackle teardown of jump-scares and creaky tricks, saw-it-coming "surprises" and the lead-footed thud of inevitability as it tediously places one clumsy foot in front of the other, plodding towards a finale that comes far too late.

    A crime saga cobbled together from scraps of genre predecessors, Deadfall's unbelievable silliness escalates at every turn.
    • 31 Metascore
    • 10 Critic Score
    It’s a crock to believe a film’s worth a twirl because it has a saucy title.
  1. Starved of humor and energy, the interminable Big Mommas: Life Father, Like Son could force Lawrence and co-star Brandon T. Jackson undercover for real.
  2. So thuddingly awful you won't crack a smile.
  3. The barely coherent Footprints seems bent on erasing any nostalgia one might have for Hollywood's heyday.

    The new film Abduction has a lot of problems, but the biggest is the fact that no one gets abducted. Ever.
  4. The real problem is, when the film blindsides us with a mystery we didn't know existed, we're already too busy not caring about mystery we knew was there.

    Nasty and over the top, The Human Centipede II (Full Sequence) feels like a horror movie that hates horror fans.
    • 16 Metascore

    The Darkest Hour isn't just a dark horse contender for the year's biggest joke, it's the darkest.
    • 15 Metascore

    Silent Hill: Revelation 3D is the nadir of senseless seasonal cinema. But while Bassett's film struggles to say anything coherently, it gets the most important message across perfectly well: "Do not go to Silent Hill!"

    And so, nearly four years since it rolled cameras, the sun rises on another Red Dawn, which supplements the irresponsibility of the original with an incompetency all its own.
  5. A broadly promising premise and well-matched stars prove no match for an abominably unfunny screenplay and the work of the poisonously untalented Shawn Levy--arguably the worst director making big-budget studio films today.

    For more experienced viewers, the tired terrain is badly shot and haphazardly assembled into an audience-testing feature that appears to have no idea how unlikable or unprovocative it is.
    • 22 Metascore

    One for the Money is as static and ugly as romantic-comedies get, the distractingly fragmented coverage of simple dialogue scenes suggesting a general ineptitude that's rare at the studio level.
