  1. By the time the film is well into its second hour, we begin to wonder whether there's ever going to be a variation on the carnage and mayhem. As it turns out, there isn't.
  2. There are times when the comedian falls back on his typical shtick, but the film doesn't shy away from the darkness inherent in this kind of story, and it has a heart.
  3. It engaged me throughout and I found the ending to be surprisingly hopeful.
  4. Elizabeth: The Golden Age lacks the intricate plotting that characterized its predecessor. The screenplay is more action-oriented but not as smart, and some of the dialogue is downright cheesy.
  5. The final 15 minutes are so awful that it's difficult to believe that the bulk of the film is actually decent.
  6. Die-hard fans of Witherspoon and the romantic comedy genre will probably find enough to like in this film to make it worth a trip to the theater. Everyone else would be best served by spending their hard-earned money on something else.
  7. Regardless, though it may be occasionally slow-moving and perhaps a half-hour too long, this film is put together with care and a mindfulness of quality.
  8. Taken 2 is more of the same, except a little bigger, a little dumber, and a little less invigorating.
  9. The inevitable twist ties things neatly together before leading to a confusing, borderline-indecipherable ending that fails to satisfy on a number of levels.
  10. Hall Pass isn't by any means flawless, but its ability to integrate extreme scatological humor with moments of genuine feeling is rare.
  11. It's all about eye candy and the quick tease. It's not over fast enough.
  12. A fast-food type of movie - it looks good in the commercials and is easy to sit through, but it doesn't offer much in the way of satisfaction.
  13. It is involving and entertaining, and features an intriguing, independent heroine.
  14. What's sad is that Elizabethtown contains two GREAT sequences.
  15. This new horror/romance mashup provides just enough flavor of Jane Austen’s classic to tease without satisfying.
  16. This represesents the smartest high-budget, high-profile science fiction film to have come along in quite some time.
  17. This brash, glitzy, energetic entertainment has the power to hold an audience enraptured, but, at the same time, there's a sense that what we're experiencing is just candy for the eyes and ears.
  18. Unfortunately, while Fanboys has moments of success, it is mostly a middling road picture that doesn't do a lot more than any average, forgettable entry into the tired genre.
  19. It’s competently made and sporadically compelling but not likely to pique the interest of anyone unfamiliar with the main character.
  20. In a curious way, Snatched is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.
  21. Hawke has made this movie his way and the result is a story that is by turns romantic and disquieting. It's well worth the price of admission.
  22. Quality-wise, however, there's a big drop off from sex, lies and videotape to Full Frontal.
  23. It boggles the mind to consider that the fertile writing team of Alec Berg, David Mandel, and Jeff Schaffer, all of whom spent time scripting episodes of "Seinfeld," could turn out something as abysmally unfunny as Eurotrip.
  24. Mechanical and artificial, and tells you what to think.
  25. Smokin' Aces is Tarantino lite - a vague and unsuccessful attempt to bring together a bunch of offbeat, unrelated characters in a situation where a bloody resolution is inescapable.
  26. There's nothing worse than a film which mistakenly believes it's the comic event of the year. For no legitimate reason whatsoever, When Nature Calls is full of itself to the point of being offensive.
  27. In the final analysis, The Expendables is little more than an ordinary, uninspired action feature.
  28. Likely won't please fans of the original TV series, but the movie hasn't been made for them.
  29. What's missing? Simple: the romance. This movie is so intent upon getting cheap laughs and putting the protagonists in uncomfortable situations that it forgets they're supposed to be falling in love.
  30. The absence of originality and inspiration isn't Mad City's only problem -- it also suffers from a shocking lack of subtlety.
