It’s a serviceable thriller at best although Christopher Plummer’s late-to-the-party performance is worthy of praise.

The movie is all about the nonstop dialogue but, as a result of the way the words flow, they function as momentum builders.

The central character is as small figuratively as he is literally, and that limits the movie’s capacity to enthrall and engage.

A family film whose infectious, crowd-pleasing song-and-dance numbers justify a 105-minute running length when the pedestrian story can’t.

An improvement over the 1995 original, this quasi-sequel mixes adventure with humor, fun performances, and a canny understanding of late 1990s-style video games.

A morality play that has much in common with the so-called “revisionist” Westerns of recent years.

Perhaps the “Wonder” in "Wonder Wheel" is that anyone agreed to produce something so tired, joyless, and uninspired.
