Although there are numerous problems with "Fifty Shades Freed," the fundamental one is also the most obvious: the lack of a compelling story.

Despite some great acting, this is a largely unpleasant viewing experience and the downbeat tone isn’t helped by a narrative that flits back and forth in time without rhyme or reason.

After 20 years, its depictions of war and how men are molded by war have lost none of their power.

One of the most honest films about young childhood to reach theaters in several years.

A mediocre remake of a mediocre original – not exactly must-see cinema. "Flatliners" is dead on arrival.

Whatever small pleasures it may offer are wiped out by the frustrating sense of incompleteness that accompanies the arrival of the end credits.

A superior alternative to the big-name, bloated action films hogging the largest screens in most multiplexes.

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

A trying 90 minutes for anyone who commits to seeing this failed and unfortunate production.
