When "Polina" works, it captivates. When it doesn’t, it’s sufficiently well-made to advance the story.
Has an exuberance for life without seeming to fall prey to every Hollywood cliché in the book.
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.
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.
