ReelViews for 'ADVENTURE' movies
With its lazy, somnambulant pace and endless stream of cameos, "Around the World in 80 Days" seems to be unfolding in real time (although it boasts stunning visuals).
As the credits roll with most of the major plot threads unresolved, the frustration is palpable when one recognizes that there will be no second installment.
Plodding, repetitive, replete with technobabble nonsense and lifeless action, this is easily the worst-written of any of the 20 to-date MCU offerings.
U.S. Release Date: 2018-06-01
MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Scenes of Peril, Disturbing Images, Brief Nudity)
Director: Baltasar Kormakur
Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin
An honest, if somewhat neutered, account of what happens in situations like this, and worth seeing if you have an interest in (Wo)man vs. Nature battles.
The prioritization of highlighting moments of "Star Wars" lore over telling a compelling story makes "Solo" feel overlong and anticlimactic.
With an unwavering devotion to spectacle and action, the film throws down a gauntlet where this kind of mass team-up is concerned.
A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.
One of the year’s most energetic, visually rewarding, and ultimately exhausting motion pictures.
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.
