Doesn’t hold up quite as well as it did during the late 1980s but it still generates suspense and O’Quinn’s performance has lost none of its power.

Director John Carney infuses the familiar framework of the “coming of age” story with songs and whimsy and a touch of romance.

Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.

A perfect time capsule that gives a real sense of what it was like to breathe the air of a recognizable yet wholly different New York City.

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.
