"The Post" offers a stirring reminder of the importance of unsung heroes in protecting the American way of life.
"The Commuter" delivers exactly what’s advertised – a turn-off-the-brain action film starring Liam Neeson that doesn’t moralize or overplay its hand.
A family film whose infectious, crowd-pleasing song-and-dance numbers justify a 105-minute running length when the pedestrian story can’t.
The movie is all about the nonstop dialogue but, as a result of the way the words flow, they function as momentum builders.
It starts slowly but eventually develops into something that is in equal parts fascinating and disturbing.
It’s a serviceable thriller at best although Christopher Plummer’s late-to-the-party performance is worthy of praise.
A standard-order action/thriller with adequate performances, occasional bursts of tension, awful dialogue, and a minimal narrative.
Despite not offering a conventionally pleasing resolution, it is in many ways more satisfying because it deviates from familiar formulas within an often-predictable genre.
