  1. The human interest story that occupies fully two-thirds of this three hour plus epic is so flat and unconvincing that, for once, you find yourself longing for the disaster footage to start.

    While it's not exactly the complete bomb that some were predicting, Charlie's Angels is ultimately just an amiable mess.
  2. While it has its scary moments, and while its central conceit is refreshingly imaginative, there's ultimately not much there there.

  3. While the film's mood is dreamy, dark, and gentle, it's also very slow and seldom leads to much of a intellectual or emotional payoff.
  4. Jackman and Judd are sweet together, so much so that you wish they were in a fresher movie than this.
  5. For 8- to 12-year-olds and the grownups who love them, Recess is a pleasant Saturday-matinee diversion. The fact that it doesn't aim to be anything more is, in its own way, a blessed relief.
  6. It earns an "Incomplete'' -- because we won't know the results until we see Lucas' next chapter.

  7. Using current hand-held camera technology to ape the political and esthetic sensibility of the 1960s.
  8. The latest installment in the "Boys Life" series has just as many hits as misses -- more misses, actually -- but the high points easily stand alongside past triumphs.
  9. A pleasant surprise that The Crew offers up the charms it does.
  10. (Ash and Russell) generate just enough tension to keep the audience interested.
  11. This lightweight concoction can't justify a trip out to the multiplex, unless you're a girl between the ages of 12 and 17, but it does provide a launching pad for a group of attractive people.
  12. Feels more like a backyard relaxation than a movie.
  13. Doesn't know when to stop with the jokes about other horror movies and settle down to tell a coherent story.

  14. Comes across as a deceptively streamlined comic-drama; an unnervingly violent, gritty film noir with a wink.
  15. Like "American Beauty" without the fangs - or the magic.
  16. Ross might have been better served by dismissing verisimilitude altogether and going for a real fable-fable to make what is essentially a very simple point about the dangers and rewards of accepting life's beautiful risks.

  17. Spacey and company deserve better.
  18. While we may like what we see, it's impossible to comprehend what much of it means or why we should care.
  19. Trots out more flag-waving wartime cliches than any movie since John Wayne's "The Alamo."
  20. Utterly lacks the spark that makes caper movies fun.
  21. Crass and depressing drama.
  22. Though the film is generally weak, treading very familiar ground, those dashes of insight and humor - along with Griffiths' performance - pull you into the film.
  23. Compared to such current television shows as ''Sex and the City" and ''Action," this menage-a-trois tale seems downright tame.
  24. Hamlet, like its title character, is a mopey, dopey thing that you just want to scream at: Do something!
  25. This mild but amusing comedy wasn't written by Levinson, and the accents may be different, but the feel is similar.
  26. Soderbergh and [screenwriter] Frank like these sidekicks so much that they overwhelm the leads — a fairly easy task, since Lopez has all the police presence of a Revlon ad, while Clooney again tries to skate by on his good looks and smirking charm.

  27. A mostly mundane single-father drama.
  28. Its ultimate merits may be few, but if nothing else, it stands on its own sweaty terms.
  29. At the end of the day, it’s a sure-handed sequel, but not a terribly thrilling one.
