Shoot 'Em Up (2007)

"Bullets fly and bad guys die. The action is non-stop and rather original in this hour-and-a-half burst of testosterone."

Superbad (2007)

El Cantante (2007)

Rush Hour 3 (2007)

"I'm not a huge fan of the first two Rush Hour films, but this third sequel is just sad considering the still-viable talent involved."

The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

"Should be one of the best action films of the summer, but the director is so enamored with his hand-held camera technique that the film becomes difficult to endure."

Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007)
