Compensates for narrative hiccups by offering an effective performance by Ben Kingsley and a story that goes to places many similar films would avoid.
A hard-to-swallow drama about sibling rivalry, mental illness, and bad therapy, it's cobbled together using clichés and contrivances.
Starts strongly but the qualities that make the first 20 minutes harrowing drain away and the movie morphs into an unsatisfying excursion into fantasy-tinged horror.
A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.
For anyone who cares about the things that make horror worthwhile, "Truth or Dare" isn’t just a misfire, it’s a travesty.
An imperfect thriller but one that expects the audience to pay attention and that doesn’t pander to the least common denominator.
Despite not offering a conventionally pleasing resolution, it is in many ways more satisfying because it deviates from familiar formulas within an often-predictable genre.
Some movies are such singular achievements that they deserve to be seen at least once by everyone who considers himself or herself to be a lover of film.
A superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame “horror” films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.

Although the movie’s foremost goal is to deliver big laughs, it gets points for taking seriously the trauma of parents who are forced to loosen the reins and let go.
