Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
[The film is] well-intentioned and ambitious, but is disappointingly flawed.
| Original Score: +1 out of -4..+4
So inspiring is his message that my own girlfriend channeled it, in the warning I received prior to my reviewing the film: You'd better love it, or I'll disembowel you.
| Original Score: 2/4
Gibson hews to a style that is visually elaborate without ever being visually complicated, scraping away the traces of any irony or dimension from every shot, every scene.
| Original Score: C-
A vanity project if ever there was one.
| Original Score: C
A rambling disappointment.
Everybody knows that a non-blubbering clause is standard in all movie stars' contracts. Too bad there isn't one banning self-indulgence when they direct.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Braveheart opts to turn cowardly, settling for the magnification of Gibson's idol status, forfeiting the complex, more nebulous magnificence of the real Sir William Wallace and virtually excising the strategic brilliance of Robert The Bruce.
At times the film seems an obsessive ode to Mel Gibson machismo.
An action epic with the spirit of the Hollywood swordplay classics and the grungy ferocity of The Road Warrior.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
With its clashing armies, heartstopping action, and grand sense of romance, this is the sort of film it's a pleasure to see and review.
| Original Score: 4/4
It succeeds in bringing to life the reality of Scottish patriotism and brilliantly captures the spirit of revolution.
| Original Score: 4/5
For pure, blood-soaked "guy flick" grandeur, few movies can touch this one.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
Completely honest, and completely eager, and subtle as an iron hammer to the skull.
| Original Score: 8/10
Mel Gibson's Oscared, bloody Scottish spectacle.
A great big splendorific Hollywood epic that's not exactly original or cliche-free, but fairly satisfying.
| Original Score: 3/4
A vastly entertaining and powerful film.
Braveheart is history the way it should be told, full of sex and treachery and battle and passion and Mel Gibson in a kilt.
| Original Score: 9/10
Gibson manages to keep his epic afloat by solidly grounding Wallace in the viewer's heart and mind.
| Original Score: 8/10
