The movie contains some tremendous individual scenes but the whole isn’t better than the sum of its parts.
Works as a fantasy, an adventure, a dark comedy, a story of love between a girl and her pet, and a vicious satire.
Its combination of good pacing and a willingness to tell a story remind us of what summer movies once were.
An orgy of incoherence, a sensory assault that suffocates the viewer in a cavalcade of special effects incontinence.
"Cars 3" has saved the best for last and will deflect the concerns of those who think this series has taken too many extra laps.
Comedy in the vein of "The Hangover" with a little "Weekend at Bernie’s" thrown in for good measure.
This film’s tone is so inconsistent as to cause whiplash and it frequently substitutes emotional manipulation for intelligence.
More about character and performance - specifically, a career-best turn for Sam Elliott as Lee Hayden - than narrative.
One movie in, The Dark Universe is already a black hole of creativity and intelligence.
Doesn’t compromise and for those who love a grittier, less audience-friendly flavor of horror, it’s a must-see.
