Movies starring Laurence Fishburne

Sort by:
All the Old Knives

With its frequent jumping around in time, All the Old Knives runs the risk of losing the viewer somewhere in the space-time continuum. Movies like this, which demand a non-linear approach for maximum impact, risk diluting the characters, which adm...

Ice Road, The

The Ice Road may be the worst direct-to-Netflix movie to feature a major star. It may also offer the worst entry into Liam Neeson’s catalog of strong, resilient action heroes. It’s not hard to understand the potential in the premise but it...

Where'd You Go, Bernadette

Although Where’d You Go, Bernadette suffers from an ungainly structure and uneven pacing, the production as a whole is engaging and uplifting. This is due in part to the strength of the cast but also owes something to director Richard Linkla...

John Wick Chapter 3 - Parabellum

The John Wick series, now on cruise control for its third installment, has fallen into a trap. The filmmakers have become so intent on delivering “more of the same” that they have lost all sense of proportion. While hyper-violent, quasi-co...

Ant Man and the Wasp

Over the past couple of years, Marvel Studios has ridden the crest of an incredible wave, culminating in the 2018 one-two punch of Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War. A drop-off was perhaps inevitable but I doubt anyone expected it to be ...

Last Flag Flying

Despite being adapted from a novel by co-screenwriter Darryl Ponicsan, Last Flag Flying feels like a Richard Linklater film. The director’s sympathy and affection for the characters is evident. He doesn’t judge them although they may have ...

Passengers

Passengers is an art-house science fiction movie that somehow got made by a major studio with A-list stars. The film owes more to castaway stories than traditional spacefaring tales and, at least during the first half, it’s ripe with existentia...

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice

For those who thought Man of Steel was dark, you ain’t seen nothing yet. Batman v Superman, the battle royale/team-up of DC Comics’ revered superheroes, is so bleak that the sun never seems to shine, the characters’ faces can’t form smiles, a...

Signal, The

The Signal ends up as a completely different movie than it is at the start. This pretty much guarantees that, although the astute viewer might intuit some of the twists and turns, at least some surprises will remain. In fact, although the movie pro...

Ride Along

Ride Along, the new action/comedy starring Ice Cube and Kevin Hart, defies the cliché that you can't judge a book by its cover. Nothing unexpected lurks beneath a bland and predictable exterior. Those who have seen a 30-second TV commercial (or t...
