  1. If you love KISS, you'll probably see this movie anyway. If you don't, there's no point.
  2. The best they were able to manage, apparently, was a grabbag of spectral sights and spooky touches grabbed from better horror films and a final act that raises more questions than it answers.
  3. Fails to satisfy.
  4. About as funny as a funeral.

    Overall, this is just another boxing movie with few surprises and an awkward message to viewers.
  5. I completely dreaded sitting through this movie...Two-hour purgatory.
  6. If Cars is indicative of the kind of movie we can expect from Pixar post-Disney merger, well, there's always Miyazaki.
  7. First-time director James Gartner has managed to whittle away whatever was compelling about the 1966 Miners championship run.

    There are enough laughs here to fill a five-minute skit but sadly, the film lasts a lot longer than that.
  8. The most telling symptom of bad comedy is pretty easy to diagnose: no laughs.
  9. A noisy, chaotic affair.
  10. While it fails to shed significant new light on its subject, Gibson's film and the all-Jesus-all-the-time attention from the media it's attracted do tell us something somewhat disconcerting about the state of American culture: That the way to make a religion based on love and forgiveness relevant today is to turn it into violent entertainment.
  11. Unfortunately for Epps, Diggs and Jones -- three capable actors -- the disjointed direction of the material robs them of any dimension and forces them to play tail-chassing caricatures.
  12. Aside from all the known material on public record the filmmakers chose not to use, Howard isn't even capable of believably bringing this off.

    Downloading Nancy is an excruciating experience.

    Even more frustrating than the trite dialogue exchanges, is the robotic performances delivering them. This is Tom Hanks' worst performance is years (maybe even his worst ever). Ron Howard's slothful direction is giant misstep from his previous effort ("Cinderella Man"), relying on techniques and hopefully he won’t repeat it again.
  13. Two things come to mind as you watch the first act of Street Kings, the first is how fresh and exciting the movie would’ve been if it was released in 1984, the second is the question, “James Ellroy wrote that?”
  14. Fred Claus is belligerently unfunny.
  15. Small, amateurish Israeli feature.

    The movie does a great job of capturing the excessive behavior and the fun that was had but it falls short in delivering a realistic picture of lives after the party ends. Christopher, like Rubell, is into giving his audience escape, not reality.

    Director and (uncredited) choreographer Robert Cary and his performers are simply not up to the task of recalling the great moments they are trying so hard to evoke.
  16. Absent the actual music, Notorious would be a lot worse.

    The fault here lies in the film’s dead rhythm, which never lights the sparks necessary for an action film. The plot and action progress like an eroding lakeshore, but the energy and excitement are washed away in every scene.
  17. Death and comedy rarely mix, and this tedious and painfully un-funny effort by director Darren Stein is no exception.
  18. Zhang Yimou is seriously off his game with the utterly ridiculous Curse of the Golden Flower, a new epic that feels like "Hero" meets "The Lion in Winter" meets "Peyton Place." The film is worthless as a serious work of art, but it may offer the jaded viewer a surplus source of MST3K-inspired wisecracks.

    Something in Toback’s approach to the subject of sex, somehow both lecherous and detached, makes it tough to get a handle on the film.
  19. Valeria Bertucelli and Ingrid Rubio as Elena and Natalia barely register for the camera, either in their adult incarnations or as the mod teens of 1975 Argentina.

    Summertime junk food.
  20. Edward and Carter are like the original Odd Couple, except nobody’s laughing.
    • 24 Metascore

    A terrible rehash of better torture genre exploitation, with none of the charm.
