    A film that succeeds at being good without really succeeding in being worthwhile.
  1. On its own terms, the picture is at least as contrived as it is charming and its characters in many cases bear less resemblance to flesh and blood human beings than those in a Farrelly brothers farce.

    “Volume Two” is what they call a movie-lover’s movie, in that it’s replete with references to just about everything a cinema geek would appreciate.
    • 63 Metascore

    Sometimes goes a bit over the top to make its point.
  2. Luckily, the genuinely funny jokes far outnumber the duds in the film itself, which is helped by the generally energetic performances by Broken Lizard and their co-stars.
  3. The chief triumph here, it seems to me though, is one of style over substance. The disaffected kids who shuffle through its universe have nothing to say, nothing to tell us. I’m not sure the movie has a whole lot more.
  4. If you're in the right mood this movie will bring a tear to your eye. If you're not you're probably already watching "Reservoir Dogs".

    By the end of Mysterious Skin, I felt physically exhausted but I also felt satisfied at the way it all falls into place.
  5. The radiant Blanchett makes Charlotte's individual journey from lovelorn lady to independent woman believable and involving, and that's ultimately what counts the most -- even if the destination is less than ideal.

    Saved! is just a sweet and funny movie that starts off with bite but settles into an honest feeling of happiness and acceptance for all types of people and their choices.

    It is frustrating to see this much raw talent on the screen, not to mention behind the camera, and to have had these people produce something that hints at so many complex things, but ultimately fails to deliver on them. It’s just a comedy, then. So be it, Jedi.

    While the film suffers from a forced absurdity meant to invoke comedy and laughs along with a sluggish pacing, Rejtman captures the grim monotony of life well.
  6. Full speed ahead fun, a rollicking caper romp that hearkens back to a quainter, pre-Ken Lay age when bigtime fraud could actually entail writing books as opposed to merely cooking them.
  7. Seriously, that kid is creepy as hell.

    As it stands, he made a noble attempt, and it could've been a Hell of a lot worse, but it's not as great a film as its potential hints at.
  8. May not exactly be an innovative film, but it most certainly is a lovable one.

    This Scottish film often pushes for realism, though its stylish tones fall back on whimsy.
  9. The film also benefits from unusually solid writing and a masterfully understated turn by Billy Bob Thornton.
    • 35 Metascore

    This is essentially a by-the-numbers revenge film with some attempts at deeper characterization. The difference between this film and, say, "Batman Begins" is that Bruce Wayne, upon finding the tormentors of his youth, never tried to kill and eat them.
    • 44 Metascore

    Two things make this worthwhile: The realistic relationship between Elliot and Richard, and Pantoliano playing against type and actually humanizing a possibly loathsome character.
    • 60 Metascore

    Commercial director Sandra Goldbacher's first feature is beautifully filmed and covers interesting thematic ground. Unfortunately, it also suffers from a somewhat incredible and melodramatic story.
    • 64 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Not an incredible disappointment, but it could have used some more work in making us remain curious about these characters and what their next course of action would be.
  10. But damn it if the film doesn't work as what it's supposed to be: a big, brainless blast o' boom at the box office.
  11. Chalk up another big-name star vehicle that fails to live up to a wealth of potential.
  12. Solid debut effort from Lisa Cholodenko.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    It’s a film that walks a fine-line between serious superhero flick and slapstick, giving the audience a conglomerate of great martial arts moments intertwined with some very funny dialogue and impetus.
  13. May just be the most quintessential Steven Spielberg movie Steven Spielberg never made.
    • 71 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    Deadline contributes reason and passion to the ongoing debate about whether civilized nations should employ the ultimate punishment and how justly it is administered.
  14. It's too bad with all of the poker action there wasn't enough time to establish the relationships between characters.
  15. A horror film that scares you to insomnia is good in the sense that it succeeds in what it sets out to do.
