A great Valentine to old-time video games, the Internet, and Disney (whose princesses steal the show).
A-level special effects can’t elevate "Rampage" above its B-grade aspirations.
One of the year’s most energetic, visually rewarding, and ultimately exhausting motion pictures.
U.S. Release Date: 2018-03-02
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Sexual Content, Nudity, Profanity)
Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Joel Edgerton, Matthias Schoenaerts, Charlotte Rampling, Mary-Louise Parker, Ciaran Hinds, Joely Richardson, Bill Camp, Jeremy Irons
A deliciously perverse, unflinchingly violent espionage thriller that breaks with the tradition of making the spy business the purview of suave characters.
To be effective, "Ride" needs to nursemaid the slow-build tension but director Jeremy Ungar rushes through too many scenes.
For "Roma" to attain its full power (which is considerable), a viewer must exhibit not only patience but fortitude.
