2/5
Get Smart (2008)
"Get Smart" largely sinks because it's an "action comedy" in which neither the action nor the comedy particularly works.

3.5/5
Strange a project as it is, "The Incredible Hulk" actually counts as something of a success.

Despite repeatedly falling for three of the most beautiful women in the movies, Reynolds winds up largely miserable

1/5
Jumper (2008)
"Jumper" is a plodding, action-less mess, in which we'd only be interested if we could comprehend what the heck was going on.

1.5/5
Semi-Pro (2008)
Aside from the 'fro and his sport of choice, Jackie Moon is really no different whatsoever from Ricky Bobby, or whatever Ferrell's character's name was in "Blades of Glory.

1.5/5
While both [this movie and "Karate Kid"] are unintentionally hilarious, the difference is no one will remember "Never Back Down" in two weeks, let alone 20 years.

4/5
21 (2008)
The movie introduces a world and sells it extremely well. It does a good job of explaining the rules of the card-counting scam, and the actual blackjack scenes are quite exciting

4/5
Stop-Loss (2008)
The reason "Stop Loss" works, unlike its 2007 predecessors, is that it cares more about its characters than it does about making a political point.

5/5
[The film] works, first and foremost because of Segel, who knocks it out of the park in both his first starring role and first produced screenplay.

Young@Heart (2007)
if you're looking to see a documentary this season about old people singing, the Rolling Stones' "Shine a Light" is not your only option.

Those wishing to defend the honor of the red states will find much to dislike here, starting with the depiction of Southerners as rednecks and Klansmen

1.5/5
Leatherheads (2008)
"Leatherheads" fails because it has trouble balancing its many plots, and because it has nothing remotely interesting to say about any of them.

4/5
Iron Man (2008)
"Iron Man"'s true revelation is leading man Robert Downey, Jr., who may not be giving the greatest superhero performance ever, but is certainly the best actor to ever portray a superhero.

Speed Racer (2008)
"It sure does have some pretty colors. True, the film is a mess and a failure in nearly every other department, but you can't deny that those colors look great."

4/5
"In the two battle scenes, we always have an exact sense of what an old film professor of mine called the "axis of action." We know who is where, and why, and where things stand

2.5/5
The pace is a bit lethargic, and the film also suffers from the usual Spielberg Achilles' heel of many, many false endings.

4/5
"It's hard to dislike any movie that begins with footage of Hulk Hogan defeating the Iron Sheik in 1984, although knowing how closely Vince McMahon guards the WWE's tape library, I don't know how Bell got permission to use the footage in the film."

3.5/5
"Zohan's" first hour may well be the strongest stretch of any Sandler comedy. But, in its second half, the film's humor takes a backseat in favor of a heavy-handed plea for Mideast peace. A noble goal, of course, but not a very funny one.
