The movie feels like what it is – a moderately low-budget action/adventure outing designed primarily for the Asian market.
A forgettable merging of a fish-out-of-water story with a cross-cultural romance, this musical lacks personality.
Although there are numerous problems with "Fifty Shades Freed," the fundamental one is also the most obvious: the lack of a compelling story.
A kluge of bad science and worse science fiction clichés, it tries to be atmospheric and scary but succeeds only at being frustrating and tedious.
A standard-order action/thriller with adequate performances, occasional bursts of tension, awful dialogue, and a minimal narrative.
"The Commuter" delivers exactly what’s advertised – a turn-off-the-brain action film starring Liam Neeson that doesn’t moralize or overplay its hand.
A regurgitated product, familiar bits and pieces of teen-friendly “scary” stuff that mimics horror in disappointingly superficial ways.
The story is surprisingly unfocused and plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.
It’s unlikely that watching this film will become the next great holiday tradition.
