Rating T-Meter Title | Year Add Date
2.5/4 25% Act of Valor (2012) " An experience that is brutal, tense and exhilarating." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 23, 2012
1.5/4 80% Haywire (2012) " Aspires to be a spy-action thriller but instead limps along as a ponderous, convoluted art-house film." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jan 19, 2012
2.5/4 66% Hobo With a Shotgun (2011) " For those who can stomach ever-escalating scenes of brutality, generous amounts of B-movie gore and a story with dialogue that is sometimes dumbfounding, "Hobo" is a hero." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 26, 2011
2/4 23% Sucker Punch (2011) " In theory, the resulting elixir should satisfy the fantasies of most heterosexual teenage boys and many men. In practice, however, this noxious concoction can barely be gagged down." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 25, 2011
3.5/4 35% Battle: Los Angeles (2011) " It's a gritty, tension-filled story of soldiers fighting their way through extraordinary circumstances. The characters feel like real people. Their struggles seem genuine. And Los Angeles is going up in flames." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Mar 10, 2011
3/4 64% Predators (2010) " Predators culminates in a glorious battle royal of explosions, blood, bullets and beatings that set the screen on fire." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 15, 2010
3/4 47% The A-Team (2010) " Takes the spirit of the series, straps a bunch of rockets to it, crashes it through a brick wall and has it make out with Jessica Biel." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jul 6, 2010
2/4 36% Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) " The excitement and fun get bogged down in a story that is too slow to unfold in a failed attempt to make it epic." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted May 27, 2010
2.5/4 28% Clash of the Titans (2010) " When the action scenes are unleashed, they're easily the most captivating component of the movie. They look and feel fantastic, and they involve abominations with more backstory and personality than any of the humans." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 1, 2010
3/4 83% Avatar (2009) " There is plenty of gee-whiz technology to keep the audience marveling over how they did this and that, so that, with any luck, viewers won't dwell too long on the derivative, unimaginative story and the shallow characters." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Dec 22, 2009
1/4 26% Ninja Assassin (2009) " Unfortunately, uninteresting characters, disjointed storytelling and an unbearable lull in the action cut Ninja Assassin off at its knees. It's the viewers who will beg for mercy here." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Nov 25, 2009
2.5/4 19% Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009) " Revenge of the Fallen entertains when things are being smashed, squished, ripped apart and blown into tiny pieces. The Transformers' animations and the chaos of their combat are intense and spectacular." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 24, 2009
2.5/4 25% Friday the 13th (2009) " It takes more than a machete and hockey mask to remake a classic like Friday the 13th." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 12, 2009
2.5/4 27% Punisher: War Zone (2008) " War Zone doesn't cheat action fans of intense violence; they'll be treated to a vast array of vicious butchery." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Dec 5, 2008
1.5/4 37% Transporter 3 (2008) " It falls flat on all fronts, with a ridiculous, nonsensical story; drab, lifeless characters; and action sequences more worthy of direct-to-DVD distribution than the silver screen." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Nov 25, 2008
3/4 43% Death Race (2008) " Offers exactly what action film fans would expect: squealing tires, blazing guns and spectacular crashes. Serviceable storytelling and dialogue that won't make you cover your eyes and shake your head are pleasant surprises." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Aug 22, 2008
3/4 16% Jumper (2008) " Jumper has all the pieces of an exciting, engaging supernatural slugfest: exotic locations, cool high-tech toys and sweet special effects." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Feb 14, 2008
2.5/4 82% Live Free or Die Hard (2007) " Live Free is an homage to itself -- unpretentious, yet not campy -- a nostalgic and enjoyable thrill ride." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Jun 28, 2007
2/4 8% The Reaping (2007) " The film uses every contrived scary-movie trick to jar the audience -- doors suddenly blow open, a hand reaches out in the middle of the woods and characters fumble around in the dark." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Posted Apr 5, 2007
2.5/4 15% Hannibal Rising (2007) " The true treat is watching Hannibal's evolution -- and witnessing the moment when his last shred of humanity disappears." — Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
