  1. A popcorn picture that thinks it’s “The Last Emperor,” The Karate Kid is about as likely to grab your youngster’s attention as any other propaganda film made by the Chinese government.
  2. Kontroll calls itself a thriller, and you will agree if you are excited by scenes of bored inspectors arguing with sullen straphangers.
  3. A sluggish and murky sub-Polanski-esque psychodrama.
  4. Honest but also derivative and crude.
  5. Feeble comic one-liners and slow pacing combine for a routine fangfest in this remake of the 1985 film.
  6. Relentlessly depressing.
  7. Overlong and grim to the point where some scenes are virtually unwatchable.
  8. Drab, despairing and pointless.
  9. Bright spots in The Greening of Whitney Brown are Bob the horse, a Gypsy Vanner who teaches Whitney about friendship and her rancher grandpa (Kris Kristofferson), who gets the Philly princess mucking out stalls.
  10. A caper comedy that forgot to put in the laughs.
  11. A better cast this time around — Michael Angarano, Milo Ventimiglia, Sofía Vergara and Max Casella, with cameos by Jason Alexander, Stanley Tucci and Hope Davis — tries to breathe life into Goldman’s cliché-ridden plot.
  12. The bite and bark of Underdog are both pretty awful, but little kids might take this pooch for a walk.
  13. This morbid, cruel movie seems leached of all things that might inadvertently give viewers pleasure.
  14. 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.
  15. Boring and irritating, and also mildly offensive in its ignorant depiction of both Judaism and Catholicism.
  16. There's not much story but there are plenty of colorful, almost David Lynchian drug freakouts, as well as lots of sick violence.
  17. The ingredients are there for a cute con game, but instead the movie turns out to be a mushy melodrama.
  18. Uma Thurman plays a flying hero who might as well be called Not Funny Woman.
  19. None of these seemingly plot-rich questions are explored; instead, we’re stuck with a greasy-haired Mark Ruffalo, as his detective character flounders along in their wake, muttering that he doesn’t have time for this magic crap.
  20. Has its laughs, but pretty much every single one of them is in the trailer. And even more unfortunately, the improbable new romantic comedy team of Steve Carell and Keira Knightley works about as well as you'd guess - like oil and water.
  21. A strange Gallic imitation of a Woody Allen comedy, replete with a neurotic older hero.
  22. Another project whose narrative gets swallowed by its design.
  23. Sherlock Holmes dumbs down a century-old synonym for intelligence with S&M gags, witless sarcasm, murky bombast and twirling action-hero moves that belong in a ninja flick.
  24. We keep waiting for a story, or at least some comedy, but none ever materializes. The dialogue makes Algebra II seem fascinating by comparison.
  25. Sarah's Key belongs to the Holocaust for Dummies section of Harvey Weinstein's History for Dummies series of mer etricious glossy dramas that ransack global events and turn them into middlebrow women's weepies to fill his trophy case.
  26. The problem is that there's not a sympathetic character among the nasty, brutish males. And the women, except for a flashy cameo by a swimsuit-clad Paris Hilton, are given short shrift.
  27. Provides a few minor thrills, but overall is talky and implausible.
  28. Lethally dull and self-important remake.
  29. With great power comes the responsibility to make a decent movie, but the mysterious force running through Chronicle is the power to supersuck.
  30. A wildly misanthropic and overlong black comedy.
