Although sporadically amusing, it feels like a 20-minute short that was expanded to feature length to its considerable detriment.

Rewards lazy, inattentive viewing...another example of why chilling, thoughtful horror is an endangered species.

Genre: Adventure/Drama

The adventure/survival aspectsare presented with workmanlike efficiency but the secondary story elements are at times cringe-worthy.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Scenes of Peril, Sexual Content, Profanity)
Genre: Adventure/Romance
Director: Hany Abu-Assad
Cast: Idris Elba, Kate Winslet

Fails to excite as a tale of survival or ignite as a love story.

A mediocre remake of a mediocre original – not exactly must-see cinema. "Flatliners" is dead on arrival.

Disappointingly shallow and superficial, recreating events from an earlier era as the Hollywood of today would like them to be remembered.

A 90-second toy commercial is generally innocuous but stretch it out to 90 minutes and it can be a challenge to endure.

"American Assassin" is as generic an espionage thriller as you’re likely to find.

Undone by a litany of bad decisions and the underlying weakness of the core material.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)

The lack of a clear direction and vision leads to something haphazard, sloppy, and not remotely viscerally compelling.
