0% The Sting II (1983) "Moves slowly, looks terrible and copies the first film shamelessly. Rather than a sequel, it's a retread, with David S. Ward's screenplay supplying hoodlum lingo you could cut with a knife and outlining a set of similar shenanigans. " ‐ New York Times

No Score Yet On the Right Track (1981) "On the Right Track' is a vehicle for Mr. Coleman that depends entirely on the premise that he is lovable. Only his most ardent television fans are likely to accept this. " ‐ New York Times

85% Chuck Berry: Hail! Hail! Rock 'n' Roll (1987) "This portrait of Mr. Berry is downbeat, and in some ways incomplete; it's very different from what might have been expected. But in its own way, Mr. Hackford's film is revealing. " ‐ New York Times

Posted Dec 10, 2013
0% Megaforce (1982) "There is too much opportunity to notice the weak spots in Mr. Needham's direction. In the case of Megaforce, these include silly dialogue, poor matching shots, oafish staging, and one scene filmed between two silhouettes against a magenta background. " ‐ New York Times
