Occasional Moments of Inspiration Mark Solid Son of God

A respectful telling of the life of Christ—perhaps too respectful—that, like so many other movies about Jesus, is a mostly solemn affair.

Newest Neeson Movie is Non-Stop Excitement

From the first hazy moments shrouded in a faint sense of impending doom to the final resolution, this is a thinking person's action film.

Pompeii Tries to Pull a Titanic... and Blows Up Instead

Yet another example of wasted potential, quickly devolving into flat, uninspired storytelling, one-note characters and decent effects.

Master Animator's Swansong: The Wind Rises is Elegiac, Inspirational

If this is Hayao Miyazaki's final film, it's a fitting farewell to an artist who inspired wonder in millions of fans both young and old.

Humor is the Secret Weapon in 3 Days to Kill

Feels like Kevin Costner channeling Liam Neeson in a funnier iteration of Taken. The movies even share the same writer and producer.

Just How Bad is Endless Love? Let Us Count the Ways...

Even a sucker for a good sappy tale won't find much to love in the hollow story of a ridiculous couple in a frowned-upon love affair.

Winter's Tale More Mystifying Than Magical

What seemed like it might be a fantastic, magical story feels awkwardly stitched together, even laughable when not outright confusing.

About Last Night Remake Neither Romantic nor Comedic

If your idea of romantic comedy is that profanity equals hilarity, drunkenness equals happiness and sex equals love, this is for you.

RoboCop Reboot Looks Cool but Still Isn't Worth Revisiting

A lot has changed in nearly three decades, but there's simply not much need for a RoboCop reboot. Audiences have been there, seen that.

Everything Stacks Up Superbly in The Lego Movie

This rapid-fire laugh machine is a wildly inventive, highly enjoyable and thoroughly entertaining family film when we least expect it.

The Monuments Men is an Entertaining, Skilled Throwback

The patriotic schmaltz feels right. If we can't be sentimental about preserving culture, we've lost touch with what these characters did.

Labor Day is a Big, Gooey Mess of a Movie

Director Reitman finally has a real stinker on his resumé with this sappy, schlocky film. Even Nicholas Sparks would scratch his head.

That Awkward Moment Takes Casual Approach to Rough Content

Hard to care much about any of the lazy, libidinous characters, especially when so much time is spent on the least interesting of them.

I, Frankenstein is Anything but Alive

Not even amusing in a "so-bad-it's-good" way. Should be the nail in the coffin of non-superhero comic book adaptations, but it won't be.

Unearned Ending Aside, Pro-Life Gimme Shelter Works

Not quite a documentary, but has an unflinching, realistic feel right til the end when it turns into a Lifetime movie with a bow on top.

Not Much to Crunch on in Forgettable Nut Job

Pretty much what Saturday morning cartoons would have been back in the day if they had been 90 minutes long and available in 3D.

Jack Ryan Reboots with Mixed Results

Has enough potential that it need not take another decade to develop the next chapter in Jack Ryan's cinematic story.

Strong Acting Can't Save Soap Opera Hysterics of August: Osage County

Watching these familiar faces shout, scream and degrade each other at dinner for hours probably isn't most people’s idea of a good time.

Lone Survivor Contains More Surprises Than Title Suggests

Berg's thematic explorations of courage, fear, integrity and sacrifice feel like introspective meditations rather than formulaic beats.

 
The Legend of Hercules is Epic... Epically Bad

If only it had been clever. Or well-acted. Or better conceived. As is, it's even worse than you might expect.
