64% The Foreigner (2017) [An] exceptionally well-made if somber thriller...[The Foreigner] is a showcase for a retirement age Chan, who clearly has no designs on retirement. - Film Inquiry EDIT

17% Baywatch (2017) The people who need saving the most in Baywatch are the likable cast with nothing to do but look good in a movie that's otherwise a conceptual disaster. - Film Inquiry EDIT

68% The Fate of the Furious (2017) Turbo charged and thoroughly mechanical, The Fate of the Furious is an empty-headed, essentially soulless popcorn film with modest aspirations in every regard but box office. - Film Inquiry EDIT

73% Gifted (2017) Gifted is out to make you laugh, make you cry, make you root for the good guys and boo the bad guys. Mission accomplished. - Film Inquiry EDIT

49% Saban's Power Rangers (2017) Entertaining without being too campy or ironic, Power Rangers gives its target audience what they're looking for. - Film Inquiry EDIT

52% The Boss Baby (2017) The Boss Baby does deliver laughs, but it is also trying to deliver more than its premise can really bear. - Film Inquiry EDIT

47% xXx: Return of Xander Cage (2017) Unimaginative, uninspired and unentertaining, xXx: Return of Xander Cage is a film no one was waiting for, and one there's no reason to pony up theater ticket prices for. - Film Inquiry EDIT

41% Office Christmas Party (2016) Office Christmas Party is a prime example of the pitfalls of throwing Hollywood resources at an under-developed screenplay, hoping the actors will save your ass on the set. - Film Inquiry EDIT

58% Bad Moms (2016) Sloppily constructed but undeniably funny, Bad Moms does effectively find the humor in situations that are going to ring true to a large audience. - Film Inquiry EDIT

67% Nerve (2016) While it's regrettable that Nerve's last act doesn't live up to the lead-in, it still delivers an entertaining and provocative hour and thirty-six minutes. - Film Inquiry EDIT

25% Ben-Hur (2016) The big budget, costume epic might be due for a comeback, but this anemic and unimaginative exercise isn't going to do it. - Film Inquiry EDIT

44% Hands of Stone (2016) Hands of Stone is a serviceable, reasonably entertaining biopic of Roberto Durán, with first rate performances that elevate it above its pedestrian execution. - Film Inquiry EDIT

18% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Without a fresh approach, the film settles for product placement and the pedestrian, perhaps under the delusion that pedestrian is an equivalent for tried and true. It isn't. - Film Inquiry EDIT
