An example of something that can work well on the written page but loses a lot when condensed and brought to the screen.

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

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Action/Thriller
Director: Stefano Sollima
Cast: Michael B. Jordan, Jodie Turner-Smith, Jamie Bell, Guy Pearce, Lauren London

For something based on a Clancy novel, it’s disappointingly lacking in the author’s trademark complexity and detail. This is pure disposable entertainment – nothing more, nothing less.

Falls short of its predecessor on a number of levels and suffers from many of the problems that plague superhero sequels.

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

The filmmakers have played unfairly, using sleight-of-hand in place of genuine emotional development.

MPAA Rating: "PG" (Disturbing Images)
Genre: Horror/Comedy
Director: Robert Zemeckis
Cast: Jahzir Bruno, Octavia Spencer, Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, Chris Rock

A forgettable, pre-fabricated movie in the "Goosebumps" tradition.

"Juvenile" is too sophisticated a word to describe this dumber-than-dumb, unfunnier-than-unfunny comedy.

Many aspects of the production are dated, but the movie has become embedded into the childhood experiences of many Generation X’ers.

Not a lot happens during the course of "The Witches" and that’s part of the problem.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity, Drugs)

Not enough to expand the movie’s appeal beyond the narrow demographic of fans representing its target audience.
