Former 007 Pierce Brosnan makes his return to the spy thriller genre in the solid (but not spectacular) “The November Man.”
It sure looks and sounds like the original Sin City, but Sin City: A Dame to Kill For lacks the original’s punch and verve.
The latest Marvel Studios comic-book-to-film extravaganza brings lots of action and laughs, and also a not-so-healthy helping of cheese. Thankfully, most of it works.
With a solid and occasionally clever script and a talented cast, this “Hercules” film is far more enjoyable than the one in theaters last January, and its worthy of your attention.
The sequel to last year’s surprise hit “The Purge” improves on its predecessor by taking audiences out into the streets and into the chaos that was only hinted at in the first film.
Though its story plays it safe, “Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue” soars when it counts, delivering family-friendly thrills and eye-popping visuals while paying homage to the courage of real-life smokejumpers and firefighters.
“Sex Tape” has its moments of genuine hilarity, but for the most part it aims low and goes for easy laughs that it hopes will appeal to its target fortysomething audience.
Thoughtful, ambitious, and character-driven from start to finish, “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes” is a worthy sequel to 2011’s “Rise of the Planet of the Apes.”
“Tammy”, the latest big screen comedy from “Mike & Molly” star Melissa McCarthy, is as a film as big a sloppy mess as its main character. It’s a surprisingly unamusing and uninteresting film, especially considering the talent that McCarthy and writer/director Ben Falcone have to work with, and perhaps the best thing that can be said about it is that a scant 96 minutes, it’s mercifully short.
Incoherent, nonsensical, at times physically nauseating to watch in 3D, and perhaps worst of all mind-numbingly long at 2 hours and 45 minutes, “Transformers: Age of Extinction” sets a new all-time low for the 80’s toy line-inspired franchise.
