“Dumbing down” was coined for productions like this: big, splashy, testosterone-fueled monstrosities.

Emotionally satisfying and, excepting some contortions during the final act, intellectually rewarding.

At best made-for-TV quality with stars too big to allow it to go directly where it belongs.

Run Time: 2:04

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Sexual Content, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Niki Caro
Cast: Jessica Chastain, Johan Heldenbergh, Daniel Bruhl, Shira Haas

A missed opportunity to tell a powerful story.

Anyone who’s up for something ominous and unsettling could do worse than to choose "Life".

"T2" has targeted a small audience and the group that thinks Boyle has again found greatness will be smaller still.

Equal parts mesmerizing and perplexing, intriguing and frustrating.

Run Time: 1:39
U.S. Release Date: 2017-03-17
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Gore, Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Genre: Horror
Director: Julia Ducournau
Cast: Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella

Not bad enough to be interesting and not good enough to be worth paying money for.

The film’s structure is suspect and its ability to develop a bond between the viewer and the characters is strained.
