Final (2001)
Leary -- and the film itself -- keeps the audience off guard.

Baran (2002)
3
Incorporates a range of genres -- black comedy, thriller, psychological drama -- and emerges more powerful for it.

2.5/4
5
The pop-soundtrack bombast of the too-infrequently somber Behind Enemy Lines ... sometimes reduces a mediocre pursuit movie with capable action to 'Rockin' Bosnia.'

No matter how ornate or magnificent a strand of jewels might be, it's not the most effective device to pin a story on.

Black Knight (2001)
Tedious and predictable.

Out Cold (2001)
9
Succeeds with performances that get some of their power from imaginative casting.

2/4
Novocaine (2001)
With Bonham Carter's been-there, done-that performance and a plot that spins out of control, we end up with a movie that you can't quite sink your teeth into.

Heist (2001)
Passable but never exciting.

Shallow Hal (2001)

1.5/4
With domestic disturbances, someone calls the cops. With this DOA, someone had better call the coroner.

On the Line (2001)
As teenybopper idol movies go, it's a few steps up from Spice World.
Posted Oct 26, 2001

K-PAX (2001)
A queasy amalgamation of Awakenings, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest and Starman.

Ghosts is too distinctive-looking to dismiss out of hand, but it would help to be able to look through a magic viewfinder (or maybe magic eraser) and make its script disappear.

From Hell (2001)

28
Marshall has fashioned a well-acted diversion, and she wisely chooses humor over treacle in what could have been an overly sentimental tale.

Focus (2001)
It's small -- and, worse, heavy-handed -- though its leads make a formidable impression.

Waking Life (2001)
It's like being in a college bar and listening to your companion blathering on about the secrets of the world.
Posted Oct 17, 2001
31
Bandits (2001)
32
Iron Monkey (2001)
Monkey ends up being 86 minutes of action with none of the character depth that made Crouching Tiger an international sensation. You see it for its punch-outs the way you see Riverdance for its stomping.

Corky Romano (2001)
34
Predictable and manipulative, complete with a clichéd Hollywood tearjerker ending.

Training Day (2001)

Joy Ride (2001)
Not nearly as speedy as it is silly.

The movie's narrative -- which covers 10 years and several initially unrelated characters -- is confusing at first, then just irritating.

Glitter (2001)
Dim bulb of a movie.

Liam (2001)

Hardball (2001)
Hardball has more going for it than the dismal Replacements.

Haiku Tunnel (2001)

If this is Dumas, there's a 'b' in the middle and an extra 's' at the end.
