Standout, signature scenes make for moments of great viewing power but can’t hide the flaws of an untidy, overlong story.
An adult fairy tale that encourages the same emotional responses often engendered by such simple, heartfelt stories.
It starts with a bang, ends with a bang, and those scenes bookend some solid character moments and tense, atmospheric filmmaking.
A tonal disaster – an awkward and ineffective attempt to blend dark comedy with social commentary.
The interminable setup and unfocused ending bookend an otherwise engaging experience.
One of the most shockingly awful wastes of talent imaginable.
An inspirational story based on a true event with long-shot Oscar aspirations.
Despite being sold and marketed as a thriller, the most interesting aspects of "Shot Caller" are the dramatic ones.

Although this "Homecoming" serves its purpose, it’s just a forgettable waystation on the MCU map, where all roads lead to "Infinity War".
"Snatched" is a little like an Amy Schumer stand-up routine: sometimes edgy, occasionally hilarious, and lessened by the bits that fall flat.
