A recognition that historical politics can be just as bizarre and absurd as the modern flavor.
If the movie’s ending underwhelms, that’s one of the few aspects that disappoints in this edgy, captivating motion picture.
Like nearly all unnecessary sequels, it’s the wedding of “bigger is better” with “more of the same.”
The reason to see "Dark Passage" is Bogie and his #1 leading lady, and they don’t disappoint.

Part romantic-comedy and part coming-of-age story, this is an upbeat, uplifting, and teen-friendly crowd-pleaser.
Possibly the most faithful adaptation of a video game to-date but faithfulness to the source material doesn’t always result in the best cinematic experience.
Compensates for narrative hiccups by offering an effective performance by Ben Kingsley and a story that goes to places many similar films would avoid.
In many ways a throwback, which would be okay if there wasn’t already an okay version of the same story kicking around from the 1970s .
This dark twist on the female coming-of-age story is worth seeing as much for its subdued thriller aspects as for its warped sense of humor.
"Gringo" is messy and at times incoherent, filled with pointless subplots and confounding “twists.”
