  1. The result, while not horrifically bad, is as mediocre a motion picture as you're likely to find in a multiplex this season. It's tough to hate the movie because it doesn't generate enough emotion for that kind of passion.
  2. This movie is sloppy and disjointed - an unsatisfying melodrama built upon a shaky foundation of contrivances, coincidences, and plot holes.
  3. When the Game Stands Tall is one of those cliché-riddled feel good movies that, by trying too hard to be inspirational, ends up as cloying and overly sentimental.
  4. The final result is an unnecessarily-long thriller that contains far more talking than action. Pakula's direction is lackluster, showing little of the style that permeated his two most impressive pictures, "All the President's Men" and "Presumed Innocent".
  5. This is made-for-TV material dressed up by Eddie Murphy's participation into a theatrical release.
  6. Although Drag Me to Hell mostly fails as horror, it achieves sporadic success as a comedy.
  7. Mr. Deeds is flat, except on those rare occasions when Sandler reverts to form or when John Turturro steals one of many scenes.
  8. This film mistakes action for energy, ridiculous circumstances for comedy, and a mismatched male/female pairing for romance.
  9. Amusing in pieces but, taken as a whole, it offers little, and the morality lesson is galling.
  10. Generic and forgettable.
  11. At an exceedingly long 135 minutes, the film needs more than what might result from the explosion of a Crayola factory, and Speed Racer has nothing extra to offer - no heart, no excitement, no moments to cherish.
  12. "Entertainment" is in the eye of the beholder. For me, watching Fast & Furious 6 was more work than fun.
  13. The November Man feels like just about every B-grade spy thriller that has ever been committed to the silver screen.
  14. While there's no denying that young actress Lindsay Lohan has spunk, she's not terribly effective in the dual role. Her performance is awkward and unsubtle -- she relies on an unconvincing British accent to cue us in to which girl she's playing at any given moment.
  15. This is a dull, lifeless production that will find favor only with those with an insider's perspective or who feel compelled to praise the acclaimed director's every film, no matter how out-of-touch and pretentious it may be.
  16. Ultimately, as things develop, this becomes less about revenge than it does about escaping a set-up. A successful production of this sort needs to constantly elevate the stakes as it builds suspense. Seeking Justice fails and that failure makes it a dubious movie-going choice best suited to the low expectations of a video release.
  17. The problem is, while the thriller aspects of the movie are serviceable, they aren't good enough to form the basis of anything more serious than a sit-com, and by spending as much time on them as Code Name: The Cleaner does, it makes the film at times seem drawn-out and tedious.
  18. A plot that insults, betrays, and cheats every member of the audience. Stupidity to a degree can sometimes be forgiven. Stupidity to this degree can not and should not.
  19. Probably best skipped - unless you have a penchant for shallow, "comfortable" foreign films that offer obvious messages and never attempt to challenge the viewer.
  20. On the whole, Star Trek V is a highly forgettable motion picture, regardless of whether you're looking at it from the perspective of a Trek lover or a movie-goer.
  21. Once it gets beyond a hard-to-swallow setup and into the meat of its story, Boxing Helena is surprisingly involving...The movie discloses its terms early, and expects the audience to buy into them, making no apologies for what it is or intends to be.
  22. A lackluster melodrama with only a few inspired moments.
  23. After a promising beginning, this movie crashes and burns.
  24. The delicate air of romance that often makes this sort of film worthwhile is absent. French Kiss does it by the numbers, not from the heart.
  25. Sleeping Beauty is one of those self-consciously artsy motion picture that promises more than it delivers.
  26. The movie feels like a vanity production, although it's difficult to determine whose ego is being stroked by this expensive adaptation.
  27. The Long Day Closes is very much the visual equivalent of a verse or a poem: beautiful images, but no narrative.
  28. A mess of conflicting tones and missed opportunities. The only one to emerge unscathed is Kate Hudson, who exhibits qualities she has rarely shown since her breakthrough role in "Almost Famous."
  29. This is not a story that cries out to be remade every 15-20 years. And, while the special effects and acting are getting better, the story isn't.
  30. As punchy and energetic as the first few moments are, the rest of the film quickly falls back into mediocrity.
