12 Strong

12 Strong represents a recent war as depicted on screen in an old-fashioned way. Back in the 1950s and 1960s, war movies followed an established template that pitted the “good guys” (often Americans) against the “bad guys.” Such fi...

Bad Boys for Life

Has the passage of 18 years and the removal of Michael Bay from the director’s chair revived or redeemed the roadkill represented by the previous Bad Boys sequel? To a certain extent, yes, but only when one considers that the third installme...

Black Adam

Black Adam embraces many of the worst elements and tropes of the superhero genre, resulting in a loud, discordant experience replete with fist-fights, pyrotechnics, and an overdose of CGI. While attempts are made to maintain a degree of faithfulne...

Dilemma, The

Ron Howard is unquestionably an A-list director, and his credentials are impeccable. When a filmmaker of Howard's status has a movie tossed into theaters during garbage time (January/February or August), it results in raised eyebrows and generates ...

While the makers of Gemini Man may have had aspirations for this to begin a new sci-fi action franchise, the would-be series doesn’t get off to the most inspiring of starts. At its best, the movie feels like a superhero/spy movie hybrid with...
