Its challenging content and well-crafted visuals more than counterbalance any narrative unevenness.

An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.

"Snatched" is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.

In "Silence", moments of brilliance punctuate an otherwise sluggish, self-indulgent narrative.

An ephemeral pleasure but a pleasure nonetheless.

Although not an Oscar-worthy endeavor, "Sully" proves to be by turns engaging, exhilarating, and nail-biting.

An entertaining but inconsequential animated movie with a strong "Toy Story" influence.

A solid space opera spectacle with enough nostalgia to overpower even the most hard-hearted child of the ‘70s and ‘80s but it relies a little too much on recycling old plot elements.

Overplotted and at least 20 minutes too long, the film opens big, slogs through its middle act, and recovers for a rousing conclusion.

Despite several high octane action sequences, this movie feels orphaned and works considerably better when viewed as part of a greater epic than as a stand-alone production.
