  1. This movie, cynically and patronizingly aimed at Seagal's predominantly "urban" audience, is sad, tedious proof that even violent exploitation isn't what it used to be.
    • New York Post
  2. The characters are so cartoonish, it's hard to care on any level -- except that it wastes such talented performers.
  3. Hokey, inept tear-jerker.
    • New York Post
  4. It's a shame that the book "We Were Soldiers Once . . . And Young" fell into the hands of writer-director Randall Wallace ("Braveheart"), a filmmaker who wouldn't recognize subtlety and understatement if they were to attack him in the street.
  5. A slow, self-consciously low-key, very dull film that strains for eeriness with long silences and affectless performances.
  6. Behind the glitz, Hollywood is sordid and disgusting. Quelle surprise!
  7. Writer-director J.S. Cardone's low-budget mishmash offers precious little in the way of thrills and chills, much less coherent storytelling.
    • New York Post
  8. Suffers from terminal hoof-in-mouth disease.
  9. Amateurish in the extreme, the film is a feast of bohemian cliché, bad writing and worse acting.
  10. An ugly, failed attempt to pull off a "Heathers"-style, teen-oriented black comedy.
  11. Sort of "West Side Story" set in 1958 Brooklyn -- minus the music or competent storytelling -- is clearly not dealing from anything close to a full deck.
  12. A silly, boring supernatural thriller that squanders a potentially interesting premise and the rapper Snoop Dogg in his ostensible starring debut.
  13. This inferior sequel is doomed by a lousy - and extremely vulgar - script.
  14. The acting is, at best, serviceable; the sound track is too often unintelligible; the direction is often over the top; and the script relies heavily on stereotypes.
    • New York Post
  15. A non-thrilling occult thrillersolame and unoriginal that it would be an embarrassment for any director, much less a talent like Roman Polanski.
  16. Dumbed down to the point where it's barely recognizable as coming from one of Donald Westlake's John Dortmunder novels.
  17. So unremittingly vulgar and inept it makes "The Best Man" and "Runaway Bride" look like masterpieces by comparison.
    • New York Post
  18. A campy docu-drama about the secretly gay world of 1950's muscle magazines.
    • New York Post
  19. You cease to care as they fall back on a catalogue of clichéd shocks, tired camera angles and an ever-mounting gore quotient.
  20. Even a hardened voyeur would require the patience of Job to get through this interminable, shapeless documentary about the swinging subculture.
  21. Why make a documentary about these marginal historical figures? Wouldn't one about their famous dad, author of "Death in Venice," etc., be more valuable?
  22. It is a boring parade of talking heads and technical gibberish that will do little to advance the Linux cause. Try again, guys.
  23. Light It Up would be a strong candidate for the year's most irresponsible movie - if it were remotely believable.
  24. A bad film with some oddly charming moments.
  25. A talky, pretentious soap opera about Spanish intellectuals.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    A self-indulgent chronicle of Chris Roe's whiny power struggle with his father over where to eat dinner in various exotic locales.
  26. To paraphrase that old quip about slow-paced art films, it literally is watching paint dry.
    • New York Post
  27. Essentially a downscale TV movie about spousal and child abuse.
    • New York Post
    • 71 Metascore
    • 38 Critic Score
    An exhausting, overindulgent film, at least for American audiences...the experience feels like Grampa Simpson meets "Cinema Paradiso."
  28. Mostly an unfunny, rather dull affair.
