Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Jodie Comer, Taika Waititi, Joe Keery, Lil Rey Howery, Utkarsh Ambudkar

Reynold’s charisma and some solid gags hold things together for a while but the movie ultimately comes up short despite its promising premise.

From a pure entertainment perspective, "The Suicide Squad" is one of the most entertaining comic book movies in recent years.

"Nine Days" is a pure allegory; the film works as an extended philosophical rumination but fails as a story.

While a majority of the movie is a rambunctious road trip, there’s heart in the evolving relationship and a solid emotional payoff at the end.

Genre: Fantasy
Director: David Lowery
Cast: Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Sarita Choudhury, Sean Harris, Kate Dickie, Ralph Ineson

Sheds conventional fantasy adventure tropes in exchange for a moody, trippy approach that transforms the well-known Arthurian tale into something offbeat and surprising.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Violence)
Genre: Action/Adventure

The filmmakers show a keen understanding of what worked in "Raiders of the Lost Ark" and pilfer shamelessly from the formula, coming up with 2021's equivalent of "Romancing the Stone."

The movie doesn’t make a lot of sense and it doesn’t help that the dialogue is poorly written and clumsily delivered.

Feels more like a two-hour commercial for the entire Warner Brothers catalog and a means of stroking LeBron James' ego.

The knowledge of how the movie must end hangs like a pall over its first 90 minutes, transforming an otherwise remarkable rags-to-riches tale into something steeped in regret.
