42% 300: Rise of an Empire
It's bound to hit some viewers as an empty exercise in stylish gore, and despite a gonzo starring performance from Eva Green, 300: Rise of an Empire is a step down from its predecessor.

49% RoboCop
While it's far better than it could have been, José Padilha's RoboCop remake fails to offer a significant improvement over the original.

47% Rio 2
Like most sequels, Rio 2 takes its predecessor's basic template and tries to make it bigger -- which means it's even busier, more colorful, and ultimately more exhausting for viewers outside the youthful target demographic.

Sweet and visually charming, Ernest & Celestine offers old-fashioned delights for animation lovers of all ages.

Warm, affectionate, and sweet but not cloying, The Lunchbox is a clever crowd-pleaser from first-time director Ritesh Batra.

95% Finding Vivian Maier
Narratively gripping, visually striking, and ultimately thought-provoking, Finding Vivian Maier shines an overdue spotlight on its subject's long-hidden brilliance.

92% The Grand Budapest Hotel
Typically stylish but deceptively thoughtful, The Grand Budapest Hotel finds Wes Anderson once again using ornate visual environments to explore deeply emotional ideas.

91% Omar
Twisty and riveting, Omar is a well-directed crime drama with uncommon depth.

89% Tim's Vermeer
Entertaining and profound in equal measure, Tim's Vermeer uses its seemingly esoteric subject to pose fascinating questions about art and obsession.

88% Alan Partridge
The Alan Partridge movie ditches the TV series' nuanced humor for something broader, and succeeds in presenting the character on a global scale.

88% Cheap Thrills
Gleefully nasty and darkly hilarious, Cheap Thrills lives down to its title in the best possible way.

87% Like Father, Like Son
Sensitively written, smartly directed, and powerfully performed, Like Father, Like Son uses familiar-seeming elements to tell a thought-provoking story.

86% Under the Skin
Its message may prove elusive for some, but with absorbing imagery and a mesmerizing performance from Scarlett Johansson, Under the Skin is a haunting viewing experience.

Rich in atmosphere and anchored by a powerful performance from Nicolas Cage, Joe is a satisfying return to form for its star -- as well as director David Gordon Green.

79% The Raid 2
Although its high-energy plot and over-the-top violence may play better with genre aficionados, The Raid 2 definitely delivers more of everything audiences loved about its predecessor.

79% Afflicted
It isn't without its share of clichés, but Afflicted proves there's still life in the found-footage horror genre.

78% The Machine
The Machine proves an audacious debut for writer-director Caradog James and a solid entry in modern British sci-fi, with thematic heft to match its genre thrills.

77% Noah
With sweeping visuals grounded by strong performances in service of a timeless tale told on a human scale, Darren Aronofsky's Noah brings the Bible epic into the 21st century.

75% Lone Survivor
A true account of military courage and survival, Lone Survivor wields enough visceral power to mitigate its heavy-handed jingoism.

74% Enemy
Thanks to a strong performance from Jake Gyllenhaal and smart direction from Denis Villeneuve, Enemy hits the mark as a tense, uncommonly adventurous thriller.

64% Bad Words
Scabrously funny and gleefully amoral, Bad Words boasts one of Jason Bateman's best performances -- and proves he's a talented director in the bargain.

60% Non-Stop
While Liam Neeson is undoubtedly an asset, Non-Stop wastes its cast -- not to mention its solid premise and tense setup -- on a poorly conceived story that hinges on a thoroughly unbelievable final act.

58% Dom Hemingway
Jude Law is clearly having fun in Dom Hemingway's title role, but viewers may find this purposely abrasive gangster dramedy isn't quite as enjoyable from the other side of the screen.

56% Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit

47% Rio 2
Like most sequels, Rio 2 takes its predecessor's basic template and tries to make it bigger -- which means it's even busier, more colorful, and ultimately more exhausting for viewers outside the youthful target demographic.

46% Heaven Is for Real
Heaven Is for Real boasts a well-written screenplay and a talented cast, but overextends itself with heavy-handed sequences depicting concepts it could have trusted the audience to take on faith.

42% 300: Rise of an Empire

40% Cesar Chavez
Too in awe of its subject's great works to present him as a human being, Cesar Chávez settles for trite hagiography.

23% The Other Woman
The Other Woman definitely boasts a talented pedigree, but all that skill is never fully brought to bear on a story that settles for cheap laughs instead of reaching its empowering potential.

23% Devil's Knot
Devil's Knot covers fact-based ground that's already been well-traveled with multiple (and far more compelling) documentaries.

21% Son Of God
The faithful may find their spirits raised, but on purely cinematic terms, Son of God is too dull and heavy-handed to spark much fervor.

20% Sabotage
Sabotage boasts one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's finer post-political performances, but it's wasted in a movie driven by grueling violence that punishes seemingly without purpose.

19% Transcendence
In his directorial debut, ace cinematographer Wally Pfister remains a distinctive visual stylist, but Transcendence's thought-provoking themes exceed the movie's narrative grasp.

18% Gambit

16% The Single Moms' Club
The Single Moms' Club finds Tyler Perry avoiding some of the pitfalls of his earlier work, but continuing to rely on heavy-handed melodrama at the expense of sensible characters or absorbing storylines.

15% Endless Love
Blander than the original Endless Love and even less faithful to the source material, this remake is clichéd and unintentionally silly.

Winter's Tale tries to retain the grandiose sweep of its source novel, but fails to fill it in with characters worth rooting for or a sensible plot.

12% Walk Of Shame
Incoherent, unfunny, and borderline misogynist, Walk of Shame lives up to its title for filmgoers entering and leaving the theater.
