Excellent record, middling movie.
A sequel that achieves what the half-hearted original set out to do.
Peddles confusion and incoherence while advertising it as ambition.
It’s not quite "The Breakfast Club" with superpowers, but it will do.
A relatively quick, vibrant and focused origin story.
A mission completed to make a summer blockbuster of destruction and little more.
Flashy VFX diminish the Bug’s kitschy cuteness and energy.
The perfect adaptation of Clive Cussler's disposably fun fiction.
Here, N.W.A. might as well stand for Nominally Worthy Adventure.
Uncharacteristically safe territory for a risky, gritty filmmaker.
The music of the night was sweeter on the stage.
A passionless, pretentious and embarrassingly stiff vanity project.
