Despite a story that starts off convincingly, this movie turns into melodramatic, revenge-crazy Hollywood mush.

It's a loathsome movie, it really is and it makes absolutely no sense.

A very mechanical revenge fantasy that skirts every serious issue it raises along a slick, cynical trajectory.

Enough trivializes an important crisis, reduces it to an almost comic embarrassment.

Works as long as it faces the horror of extreme male privilege, but dissipates quickly once Lopez begins over-preparing for a face-off with hand-to-hand combat training and calibrated techno-gadgetry.

Clumsy, obvious, preposterous, the movie will likely set the cause of woman warriors back decades.

At best, this should have been a bad made-for-TV movie.

In terms of actual social conscience, the movie gets a demagogic, rabble-rousing F.

Apted has paced Enough with the required amount of snap, keeping the whammies coming at regular and increasingly terrifying intervals.

The picture should really have been titled Uncle, because that's what many men will feel like crying out after enduring this estrogen-fuelled freakout.

If the road to hell is paved with good intentions, Enough just added another lane.

It's the most tension-producing movie out there right now -- in the best way, it's almost unbearable.

It appears to have been made by people to whom the idea of narrative logic or cohesion is an entirely foreign concept.

You expect more from director Michael Apted (Enigma) and screenwriter Nicholas Kazan (Reversal of Fortune) than this cliche pileup.

When it comes to making bad movies, for Lopez, Enough is enough.

Rivals Showgirls and old Ed Wood movies from the 1950s in the so-bad-it's-fun category.

As gaudy and manipulative entertainments go, there's just not enough in Enough.

What begins as a seemingly brainless, bubbly romantic comedy becomes a cliche-drenched melodrama by mid-film and, by film's end, a feminist action fantasy.
| Original Score: 2/4

You wonder why Enough wasn't just a music video rather than a full-length movie.

A nasty item masquerading as a feminist revenge picture.

Shamelessly exploits the horror of domestic violence for melodramatic, cheap thrills.

The hackneyed story about an affluent damsel in distress who decides to fight her bully of a husband is simply too overdone.

Dotted with the 'Oh, please!' moments of grotesque implausibility you get when cynical, shameless filmmakers ... feel contempt for their audience.

Spousal abuse is a major problem in contemporary society, but the film reduces this domestic tragedy to florid melodrama.

The movie does some traveling of its own: from sort of stupid to simply ludicrous.

We root for [Lopez], fear for her and eagerly await her transformation into something like The Equalizer.

It's his brazenness -- and Campbell's utterly creepy performance -- that keeps the story revved up, even when you feel it's being spelled out for you in Crayola.

This is a by-the-numbers thriller that doesn't even succeed on the most basic, visceral level.
