Despite its strong sense of atmosphere and an intense performance by lead actress Florence Pugh, "The Wonder" is strangely uninvolving.

What director Gina Prince-Bythewood provides is more than enough for a rousing motion picture filled with well-choreographed battle scenes effectively folded into stories of human interest.

It's not without flaws but it draws the viewer into its specific time and place and offers an engaging two-hour escape into the life of a memorable individual.

This is no soulless cash-grab. Spielberg’s "West Side Story" is a resplendent entertainment.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Profanity, Violence, Sexual Content, Nudity)
Genre: Drama
Director: Nathalie Biancheri
Cast: George MacKay, Lily-Rose Depp, Paddy Considine, Eileen Walsh

The world-building is inadequate and the storyline is erratic. There are some good performances here, but the movie as a whole doesn’t work.

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.

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