    Works best as a beautifully executed and inspirational work of self-sacrifice.
  1. Cash is a legend, and deserving of a more thoughtful portrayal than what we’re offered here.
  2. Visually imaginative and energetic.

    The kids and adults can dig this one, though adults may be stricken with Disney deja vu by this point.
  3. An emotionally honest film, but it would have been far more affecting if it felt more true to life.
  4. With yet another snappy script and a fiendishly clever story, Mamet leads us through this labyrinthine film with skill and wit. It's nothing terribly original, but it is a lot of fun.
  5. Delightfully goofy.
  6. As a matter of fact, Initial D is an anti-car racing film. It's not about thrills; it's about how to perfect the art of drifting, philosophy, and how to transcend the human condition.
  7. No less than four screenwriters are credited, yet the script is filled with the usual clichés (hello, red digital readout!) and supposed twists that can be seen a mile away.
  8. The cast is genuine in their emotions, the film depicts them that way, and the camera doesn’t feel compelled to go hand-held crazy--which is refreshing.

    The last act of American Gun is quite possibly one of the most ridiculous and forced dramatic twists I've seen in years.
    • 61 Metascore

    This raw truth, this emotional nakedness, is deeply refreshing.
  9. Isn't as dark or sinister as its source material, but it comes closer than any other filmed attempts to this point. It may only be a decent movie, but it's a pretty fine PKD adaptation.
  10. Sevigny and Beckinsale, looking very Parker Posey-esque here, give solid performances, but it's not enough to out weigh Stillman's smugness.

    Seven Pounds is the very definition of a 'noble failure.'
  11. Isn't a bad film per se--it’s just an empty film.
  12. Empire is an entertaining, colorful, action-filled crime story with an intimate heart.

    It’s not hard to see why The Way Home has become such a hit in its native South Korea. The story is a plaintive moral tale, adding the requisite doses of humour and sentimentality where it’s required.
  13. The film is dumb, formulaic, the other actors are scarcely worth mentioning, and the plot is merely an excuse to set up the action scenes. But it didn’t bore me; The Rock is ceaselessly entertaining.
  14. The increasingly creepy plot is counter balanced by a genuinely tender romance, which makes the film impossible to categorise, and will no doubt limit it to obscure arthouses and cinephiles who have very strong stomachs. They won't be disappointed.
  15. In the plus column, Poseidon is a tightly-paced action movie that doesn’t depend too much on special effects for its thrills.
  16. Whether you’re a casual or an ardent follower of M. Night Shyamalan's films, The Happening could alienate or dominate your thinking cap. Remember--it's perfectly acceptable to laugh one second and shriek the next.
  17. Nighy is superb as usual in a much meatier role than even he usually gets. And Byrne makes her character far more three-dimensional than the shallow creature she could have been.
  18. Radio is a film many people may be tempted to laugh off as button pushing feel-good fluff. Before doing so, they might want to ask themselves just what it is they find so funny about a little peace, love and understanding.

    Fails to add anything of substance to the history that it portrays.

    If you hated "Dogville" because of the overage of narration or the length of time it took to finally get to a point, you'll be pleased to know that von Trier has lessened both those elements. With that said, it still has some of the same flaws.
  19. It is an entertaining bit of fluff, with a few engaging performances and enough visual panache to keep audiences diverted and amused.
  20. A pleasant enough little film. Jerry isn’t what one would call a sympathetic figure, but you find yourself cheering for him anyway.
  21. Botko and Gurland's bleak and caustic comedy gets off to a slow start and struggles to overcome the handicap of having three main characters who are, by design, highly unpleasant individuals.
  22. Ali
    Well-acted and skillfully made, the film offers enough that is worth seeing, but its idiosyncratic nature is sure to limit its mainstream appeal.
