"A Walk in the Woods" is pleasant but inconsequential, a passing diversion rather than a worthy cinematic destination.
The musical sequences throb with energy and this allows "We Are Your Friends" to maintain its trajectory when its momentum flags.

"No Escape" is a throwback to an era when thriller were defined by suspense and tension rather than overblown action and special effects-enhanced stunts.
More like an unnecessary retread than an organic extension of the original.
The movie is replete with bloody encounters, sly asides, and one-liners, but the tone is awkward and uneven.
Guy Ritchie directs with a deft touch, allowing things to move at a rapid clip while maintaining a light, sometimes humorous tone.
The psychological thriller "The Gift" subverts the "Fatal Attraction" genre by sprinkling it with a little "Usual Suspects" flavoring.
As a superhero movie, it falls into the "adequate" range of the spectrum - neither memorable nor forgettable.
