The performances are what frequently hold the film together when it seems at loose ends, namely from stars Ricardo Darin, Soledad Villamil and Guillermo Francella.

It is highly unlikely that you ever would have the opportunity to witness such spectacles in person; Perrin and Cluzaud scoured all five oceans to bring them to you.

The film is a curiosity. It's both an attempted documentary of an artistic movement and a bemused examination about why the movie failed in that mission.

The Joneses (2010)
It makes for good, although not great, satire of the consumer culture that helped wreck the economy.

Kick-Ass (2010)
Director Matthew Vaughn has made an action comedy so bloody funny -- double emphasis on bloody -- fans might need to see it again just to catch the gags they missed from laughing so hard the first time.

After.Life (2010)
Wojtowicz-Vosloo just piles on the nonsense back and forth in a laughably incomprehensible muddle.

The Square (2010)
The brothers Edgerton may not be able to summon the dangerous lust or romance of a Cain story, but they can ably supply the wry sense of fate.

A formal exercise in redundancy, offering no new insights into the much mythologized rock band.

Date Night (2010)
These are two of the funniest people ever on television, yet their big-screen Date Night is a dreary, uninspired waste of their talents -- and those of the top-name cast inexplicably appearing in small throwaway roles.

Vincere (2010)

While Li, Lau and Kaneshiro bring warmth, humor and pathos to their roles as blood brothers bound for tragedy, they're better to watch in action or when quietly brooding than when pontificating on what they owe to one another and the warriors they lead.

The Greatest (2010)
The movie might have resonated more if it threw out some of the grief-counseling cliches and let the idiosyncrasies of the characters dictate more of the drama.

Don McKay (2010)
An admirable attempt even if the film only works spottily.

Kinnear lends the movie a dignity it doesn't deserve and stands as the only cast member whose dramatic moments aren't propped up by soaring musical cues.

Chloe (2010)
Atom Egoyan's sex thriller Chloe is a pure guilty pleasure, if you take away that part about pleasure.

In transferring the clean, precise humor of Kinney's illustrations and prose to the big-screen, the material loses just a bit of its charm.

The Bounty Hunter has little to offer besides some face-time with handsome stars.

The Runaways (2010)
Stewart and Fanning handle the vocals admirably, their live performances blending seamlessly with actual Runaways recordings on the soundtrack.

Green Zone (2010)
Chandrasekaran's book is a work of sharp, informative journalism. That "inspired by" credit sounds a little insulting when the result is tired, standard action fare such as Green Zone.

Famuyiwa has made a mostly charming movie despite its cliche milieu.

Brosnan and Williams are the real highlights, both such dynamos that you feel their absence and yearn for their return during the long stretches when McGregor is mucking about on his own.

The Crazies (2010)
A beautifully shot film that contains equal measures of style and gore.
Posted Feb 24, 2010
35
Cop Out (2010)
Cop Out is a clumsy postmodern buddy cop flick that stuffs as many genre references as it can into the ceaseless patter between Tracy Morgan and Bruce Willis.

Defendor (2009)
The low-budget movie continually shifts from comic-book spoof to gritty crime story to mental-health drama, the inconsistent tone preventing it from ever fully working as one or another.

If a film is going to pile on the doom and foreboding this thickly, the payoff better be worth the hard road viewers have to slog.

It's more a list of ingredients than a movie-magic potion to enjoy from start to finish.

The Wolfman (2010)
There's more emotion in the monster's howls, which were created by a baritone opera singer, than in Del Toro's monotone mutterings.

Frozen (2010)
These three are so dull the story might have had more spark and tension had Green stranded three strangers aloft on a frozen chairlift.

When in Rome (2010)

As a portrait of one man's journey toward dignity, Saint John isn't bad enough to create its own special circle of hell. As a comedy, though, it's anything but divine.

Creation (2010)
As period dramas go, Creation is quiet and modest, sparse in action and decked out with classy but unassuming costumes and sets.

Fraser brings earnest sincerity to the role of the heroic dad, but all the lip quivering in the world can't overcome the movie's turgid presentation.

It's an overwrought teen weepy, Terms of Endearment for the TRL crowd.
