ReelViews for 'DRAMA/THRILLER' movies
"Destroyer" keeps the tone dark, eschewing anything resembling a traditional crime story and allowing Nicole Kidman's performance to take front stage.
With so much material crammed into a 110-minute motion picture, it feels rushed and unfinished.
The story is surprisingly unfocused and plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.
Despite an interesting premise, it fails to deliver much beyond a gradual descent into disinterest and watch-checking.
Although not the definitive Watergate movie, it illustrates an aspect that has not been given ample attention by filmmakers.
"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
This film’s tone is so inconsistent as to cause whiplash and it frequently substitutes emotional manipulation for intelligence.
"T2" has targeted a small audience and the group that thinks Boyle has again found greatness will be smaller still.
