Represents what a true “summer movie” should be: a light, fast-paced spectacle with likeable characters and a balance between action/eye candy and narrative elements.

When the warped humor and unallayed brutality are working hand-in-hand, this is a fun (if bizarre) experience.

The format is dated but, curiously, that may be the best reason to watch it in the first place.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Sexual Content, Nudity)

This middling melodrama about power, sex, and tennis is heavy on homoeroticism and light on meaningful storytelling.

For those willing to overlook some often-familiar horror movie conventions, the movie is gorily diverting and maintains a light, flippant tone.

Like many recent Ritchie movies, this one has a lot of frenetic action, a fair amount of spectacle, some cheeky dialogue, and a hefty dose of machismo.

Designed to be corny and loopy but with a kernel of sentimentality at its core, and is sufficiently different to make it almost worth seeing for that reason alone.

Run Time: 1:49
U.S. Release Date: 2024-04-12
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Drama/Thriller
Director: Alex Garland
Cast: Kirsten Dunst, Wagener Moura, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Cailee Spaeny, Nick Offerman

"Civil War" does a good job dissecting the damage done by a desensitization to violence but it botches the backstory and features an ending that belongs in another movie.

Generally viewed not only as the best of the Burton/Schumacher series but one of the best superhero movies of the 20th century.

A blood-soaked revenge tale with a high body count that refuses to pull its punches to make the protagonist more likable.
