The fifth movie sticks to the formula and delivers the third-most entertaining entry into the series, which is probably about the best one can hope for at this stage of its existence.

Run Time: 2:12
U.S. Release Date: 2017-04-21
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Drama/Adventure
Director: Terry George
Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlotte Le Bon, Christian Bale, Shohreh Aghdashloo, Angela Sarafya

Although at times overwrought and overtly manipulative, the film as a whole is like a kick to the gut.

Equal parts mesmerizing and perplexing, intriguing and frustrating.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Peter Berg

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Science Fiction
Director: Morten Tyldum
Cast: Chris Pratt, Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Sheen, Laurence Fishburne

An odd movie but its central questions and dilemmas are compelling and there’s enough here of substance for the impressions to linger.

It’s difficult to recommend something that, despite offering a few solid laughs, is instantly forgettable.

Analyzed on its own merits or in concert with the earlier film, "Point Break" doesn’t work.

To those with even a limited exposure to Peanuts over the years, this will feel like a homecoming.
