A deliciously perverse, unflinchingly violent espionage thriller that breaks with the tradition of making the spy business the purview of suave characters.
The story is surprisingly unfocused and plunges into quasi-thriller territory that relies on a series of hard-to-swallow contrivances.
"Detroit" functions as much as a dramatization of things that happened as a cautionary tale of where we could be headed.
"Fantastic Beasts" is an enjoyable stand-alone but its position as the progenitor of a new franchise remains unclear.
By cramming far too much material into 114 minutes, "The Huntsman: Winter’s War" feels rushed and incomplete.
"Mockingjay Part 2" fails to satisfy as either a traditional sci-fi adventure blockbuster or an exploration of the dark side of war.
