  1. Not without humor, but it lacks the explosive spontaneity of "The Hangover."
  2. Someone please get director Ric Roman Waugh a tripod! Snitch might be a passable action-thriller but it's hard to say because every time an action scene comes along, the image shakes so badly it's impossible to keep anything in view or focus.
  3. Despite being largely uninspired, the dialogue is peppered with enough profanity and salacious comments to keep the undiscriminating interested.
  4. Transporter 3 is the most frustrating entry into a series that has never set the bar terribly high.
  5. Doomsday tries to cram so much into its limited 105 minutes that aspects end up feeling rushed and confused (especially the political situation in England) and the ending is perfunctory.
  6. All that's missing from Ivan Reitman's Six Days, Seven Nights is a plot with a moment's originality.
  7. A kinetic, visually dazzling thriller that's actually a notch above many of its predecessors - albeit only a small notch.
  8. Perhaps the most disappointing thing about Apt Pupil is the lack of sustained tension generated by director Bryan Singer.
  9. Like much of what transpires during the course of this production, it’s just crass.
  10. 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".
  11. Jack Reacher has the distinction of being little more than it initially appears to be: a clumsily condensed mystery/thriller novel made into a movie that offers little more than every other clumsily condensed mystery/thriller novel made into a movie.
  12. 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.
  13. It's easy to be cynical about a movie like this which, despite its factual basis, is more product than story. The pandering is obvious.
  14. Never representative of more than mediocrity from a technical or story-based standpoint, the Ice Age series has reached a new nadir with its third entry.
  15. The movie is replete with bloody encounters, sly asides, and one-liners, but the tone is awkward and uneven. There are also some serious structural problems that we're supposed to brush aside.
  16. A standard-order romantic comedy with many of the expected twists and complications. It suffers from the flaw of not giving the lead characters enough time together.
  17. An inelegant combination of two unrelated shorts that falls far short of the director's previous work in terms of both thematic content and narrative strength.
  18. There are lengthy stretches during this movie when it's deadly dull. This is the kind of film that's ideal for DVD viewing. Judicious use of the fast forward button will greatly increase The Ten's appeal.
  19. Much of the average viewer's time in the theater will be spent waiting somewhat impatiently for the high-energy climax. Catnaps are an advisable way to survive some of the slow spots.
  20. This is a lame psychological thriller with an obvious story trajectory. It's a wannabe film noir with no atmosphere whatsoever.
  21. The film is too light and juvenile to be viewed as some sort of darkly subversive satire in which the director is laughing at those of us who take it all semi-seriously.
  22. Death of a President is celluloid mediocrity. It's neither interesting nor convincing.
  23. This is a joyless experience made all the sadder because most viewers still remember the naughty delights delivered by "American Pie."
  24. Whether the core flaw lies in the script or is the result of overly aggressive editing, the final result is offers only sporadic glimpses of the compelling thriller Broken City fails to evolve into.
  25. In the end, Conspiracy Theory fails to work as an action film, a romance, or a mystery -- all of which it aspires to be.
  26. Pretty much a one-trick pony, and, after a while, that trick loses its ability to impress.
  27. Although each episode might be marginally entertaining in its own right, the overall effect is that the movie isn't funny enough, exciting enough, or dramatic enough to warrant two hours of an audience member's time.
  28. The curious thing about Father of the Bride Part 2 is that not only is it the sequel to a remake, but it's the remake of a sequel. As such, it's a perfect illustration of stretching an idea too far. Certain premises lack the necessary material for a multiple features, and this is one such example
  29. The sloppiness of the ending doesn't only damage The Black Dahlia, it sinks the project.
  30. If movies were rated solely on the basis of style, The Quick and the Dead would score highly indeed. With its dazzling photography, inventive camera angles, and throbbing bass score, the film is an experience for the eyes and ears. Director Sam Raimi and cinematographer Dante Spinotti have woven a beautifully elaborate tapestry: colorful and evocative -- and depressingly two-dimensional.
