Remember the Titans (2000)

"[Bruckheimer's] latest production is, in some ways, a departure. Not only is it based on a true story, it is also actually about something."

Bait (2000)

"Fuqua has enveloped the luckless Jamie Foxx ... in a stylishly inept mess of a movie; a film as badly flawed in concept as it is incoherent in execution."

Unbreakable (2000)

"All I will say about it is that its overwhelming horror hit me more powerfully than a locomotive, and that, after I knew what it was, I couldn't believe I had overlooked it. Days later, I still find myself obsessed with that twist."

The Art of War (2000)

"Sun Tzu said, 'Be subtle! Be subtle! And use your spies for every kind of business!' And 'ponder and deliberate before you make a move.' Alas, Sun Tzu didn't have script approval on this mess."
