The idiotic ending doesn’t redeem the uneven middle portion. The film's biggest problem is identified by the title.

A simple story with lots of visual pizzazz and little in the way of complexity or intelligence is a great way to lure viewers of all nationalities into theaters.

Run Time: 1:30

Genre: Comedy/Drama
Director: Jon E. Cohen
Cast: Rancel Edwards, Erin Karpluk, Michael Xavier, Erin Agostino, Jonas Chernick, Mia Kirshner

This superficial and lightweight approach might make for adequate TV viewing but it functions more as a clumsy tease than a satisfying motion picture.

Plodding, repetitive, replete with technobabble nonsense and lifeless action, this is easily the worst-written of any of the 20 to-date MCU offerings.

Run Time: 1:38
U.S. Release Date: 2018-06-15
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content)

Falls prey to two common problems: (1) predictable, uninspired humor, and (2) inept attempts to inject drama into the proceedings during the last act.

A poorly-designed heist leads to a surprisingly lackluster experience, unless you’re on hand primarily for the fun of seeing eight talented actresses interacting.

The prioritization of highlighting moments of "Star Wars" lore over telling a compelling story makes "Solo" feel overlong and anticlimactic.

Run Time: 1:40
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-27
MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Drugs)
Genre: Comedy
Director: Zak Knutson
Cast: Maggie Grace, Clancy Brown, John Malkovich, Ryan Kwanten, Mike Epps, Russell Peters, Brooks Braselman

This more-dumb-than-funny stoner comedy has its moments, although not nearly enough of them.

"Midnight Madness" probably lives in the memories of some as an engagingly dumb slice of ‘80s moviedom and it’s better left there.
