Although not the definitive Watergate movie, it illustrates an aspect that has not been given ample attention by filmmakers.

"American Made" is breezy and fun and makes its points without subjecting the viewer to a browbeating.

Run Time: 1:52

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Adult Themes)
Genre: Drama
Director: Stephen Frears

Frears hasn’t just made an historical recreation; he has made a movie containing a message with universal implications.

When "Polina" works, it captivates. When it doesn’t, it’s sufficiently well-made to advance the story.

Genre: Comedy/Drama

At times it feels a little amateurish, especially in terms of its comedy, but there’s also a deep-rooted sense of sincerity.

The movie may be marketed to art house audiences but it has something to say to (and about) us all.

An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.

Although there are individual moments that snap, crackle, and pop, the production as a whole is bloated and at times even a little tedious.

A 90-second toy commercial is generally innocuous but stretch it out to 90 minutes and it can be a challenge to endure.

"American Assassin" is as generic an espionage thriller as you’re likely to find.
