Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Una película intimista, humana y conmovedora, con gran actuación de John Cusack y estupenda banda sonora compuesta por Clint Eastwood.
| Original Score: 4/5
Cusack really steps into the character of the uptight, conservative, grief-stricken Stanley and the little girls who play his daughters are amazing.
| Original Score: 7/10
This heartfelt film is a bitter-sweet snapshot of a man and the special relationship he cements with his daughters as he takes them on a spur-of-the-moment road-trip.
The power of the ending comes from the inherent pain of loss, but it's no feat to recognize how emotional this would be, to tell us it's coming and to dangle it in front of us for an hour and a half.
| Original Score: 2/5
...packs an emotional wallop that ultimately belies its low-key sensibilities...
| Original Score: 4/4
Depicts a side of the Iraq war, the American home front, that has been barely touched in other Iraq war movies.
| Original Score: 3/4
the mood is as overcast as the sky that follows the Phillips' as they head for Florida and the inevitable moment of revelation. Grace Is Gone is a downer worthy of a super-sized box of Kleenex
This isn't so much a film about picking up the pieces after a tragedy, but instead an extended story of the pieces that fell...
| Original Score: 5/10
Despite the strength of the cast (in particular O'Keefe, who's making her film debut here and shows tremendous promise), it's hard to muster much enthusiasm for Grace Is Gone.
| Original Score: 2/4
Good intentions can only go so far.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Strouse gives the movie an industrial sparseness, which only increases its intimacy.
It makes its points and is more cultural evidence of just how harshly history is likely to judge our ill-fated adventure in the Middle East.
| Original Score: B-
The drawn out process in this character vehicle runs on low grade dramatic fuel.
| Original Score: 3/5
It's a narrative strategy that neither informs, challenges nor heals.
| Original Score: 1/6
This is, most subtly, Grace Is Gone's abiding theme, the ways that overwhelming loss bring into focus what remains, as well as the cultural frameworks by which moral judgments are made.
For all its good intentions and solid acting, it ends up more maudlin than penetrating.
| Original Score: C
[No]matter how much you love [Cusack's] usual snarky schtick, it's wonderful to see him stretch as an artist...
Cusack's climactic confession is heartrending. But too many other moments strain credibility.
A banal weepie.
| Original Score: C+
The perfect maudlin holiday entertainment.
| Original Score: 5/10
