Soporific exposition culminates in a visually chaotic final act that makes "Tintin'' look downright restrained.

At some point you have to ask: When are fantasy fans going to tire of heroes and villains throwing bolts of energy at each other? Give it a rest already!

The Sacred Star of Milos manages to be an entertaining and faithful expansion on the original material while being inconsequential to it.

This is a very intelligent, well-plotted story - and my hunch is that we have not seen the last of our heroes.

This is a gripping mystery in its own right, and even retains the original Japanese voice actors (with subtitles).

The widescreen canvas is an improvement over television's limited expanse. But if you're not among the indoctrinated, don't bother.

It's silly and excessive, but Fullmetal Alchemist occasionally strikes a note of adolescent truth, as when Ed wishes for "some way to get our bodies back."

Pic upholds the series' trademark use of pacey action and well-defined characters struggling against oppression and seeking answers to spiritual questions.

The incomprehensible back story didn't dim my enjoyment much. The movie is a crackerjack audio-visual thrill ride.
