Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Inside Llewyn Davis
...not a great movie but a reliable one, with another solid performance from Sean Connery, who always makes a staunch, stalwart protagonist of truly heroic proportions.
| Original Score: 6/10
While there are several mile-wide plot holes and one key under-developed main character, the film emerges as a tight, intriguing old-fashioned drama that gives audiences a hero worth rooting for.
Outland is essentially High Noon in outer space, and one of the most entertaining sci-fi flicks ever made.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
This harrowing sci-fi flick has mellowed with age over the years, but Sean Connery's performance is still good, and the first couple of acts are still quite engaging.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
A movie of unexpected pleasures.
| Original Score: 3/5
Outland works as a sturdy morality play set uin an unsual environment.
| Original Score: 4/5
...an enjoyable sci-fi action flick.
| Original Score: 3/4
Exciting science fiction.
| Original Score: 8/10
The early-going intrigue maintains interest, but once the film starts shamelessly riffing on High Noon, all the excitement fritters away.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
Connery and Boyle are fine, but the wholesale lifting of High Noon's plot certainly undermines interest.
| Original Score: 2/4
The failure of director-writer Peter Hyams to put any weight whatever behind the moral issues (crude as they are) makes this merely violent nonsense.
Because both dialogue and direction are none too exciting, one's tired eyes wander endlessly over the space base sets.
| Original Score: 2/5
