Sketchy character development and poor world-building keep the film and its protagonists at arm’s length.

As generic, made-for-quick-consumption animated productions go, there’s nothing especially bad about "Spirit Untamed." Unfortunately, there’s nothing especially good, either.

All the ingredients seem to be in place for a rollicking violent time but the elements don’t gel.

Slickly made but hollow, offering little to anyone who isn’t deeply invested in the franchise; it may be a good tie-in to the video game series but it’s a bad motion picture.

What works as a sizzle reel totaling three minutes shows its inherent shallowness when expanded to nearly two hours.

The flaws of "Justice League" were rooted too deeply for even a complete reworking to solve them.

"Coming 2 America" will disappoint only those who believed Murphy could do something amazing or hilarious with this dubious property.

The film’s inability to effectively meld its disconnected stories makes it feel like "Crisis" is two stand-alone movies that were shortened and crammed together.

Would seem to be as close to a can’t-miss premise as one can imagine yet, despite that, it somehow does miss – and by a wide margin.
