There wasn’t much to Hamlet’s Ophelia and there’s not a lot more to this production’s version of her.
By adding cumbersome elements to the narrative, it ultimately detracts from the core human story.
Devoid of complex plotting, comprehensive world-building, and narrative twists, "Aquaman" seems strangely out-of-step with where the genre is going.
There’s nothing surprising or especially interesting - anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of politics will find the terrain familiar and a little stale.
A respectable venture that fails to generate the kind of gripping, compulsively watchable melodrama and adventure needed to keep the audience engaged.

As an alternative version of "Deadpool 2", "Once Upon a Deadpool" is more unfortunate than bad.
Well-made but uneven, "The Front Runner" is a less a film for general movie-goers than for political junkies.
Does an excellent job assembling pieces and preparing viewers for the larger picture but disappoints in its ability to tell a stand-alone story.
A generic espionage/crime thriller; although briskly paced, the plot is far from airtight and demands a deus ex machina to reach its climax.
The performances of Charlene deGuzman and co-star John Hawkes keep the viewer engaged as the screenplay touches all the expected bases.
