A sequel made for (and funded by) Super Troopers die-hards. It’s hard to imagine the uninitiated getting much out of it.

If there’s something less subtle than a sledgehammer, it applies here.

Run Time: 1:47
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-13
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Profanity, Disaster Images)
Genre: Action/Adventure
Director: Brad Peyton
Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Naomie Harris, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, Malin Akerman

A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.

For anyone who cares about the things that make horror worthwhile, "Truth or Dare" isn’t just a misfire, it’s a travesty.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-11
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Brad Anderson
Cast: Jon Hamm, Rosamund Pike, Dean Norris, Shea Whigham, Mark Pellegrino, Jonny Coyne, Leila Bekhti, Idir Chender, Hicham Ouraqa

An imperfect thriller but one that expects the audience to pay attention and that doesn’t pander to the least common denominator.

Run Time: 1:30
U.S. Release Date: 2018-04-06
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: Science Fiction/Horror

A superb exercise in understated terror that puts to shame “horror” films that rely on jump scares and cheap theatrics.

Although the movie’s foremost goal is to deliver big laughs, it gets points for taking seriously the trauma of parents who are forced to loosen the reins and let go.

This concept, although suitable for a short, is too thin for a full animated feature and wears out its welcome long before the end credits arrive.

One of the year’s most energetic, visually rewarding, and ultimately exhausting motion pictures.

Like nearly all unnecessary sequels, it’s the wedding of “bigger is better” with “more of the same.”
