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.

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.

This sad little movie is built entirely to set up Chan's stunt sequences as he fights with pots, pans, ladders and other found objects or hurtles stairways to chase bad guys. The action stuff is more tolerable than the jokes, but barely.

In the future, according to The Book of Eli, we'll all dress like we're in a Nine Inch Nails video. It is written.

Leap Year (2010)
There's not one surprising moment in the script, but Adams and Goode allow you to look past the familiar and develop a rooting interest in them as a couple.

Daybreakers (2010)
There are more revisionist bloodsucker stories out there than you can shake a stake at nowadays, and they're getting tiresome.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakquel offers exactly two big laughs for its kiddo target audience -- one involves passing gas, the other a shot to the crotch.

The story's not entirely predictable. Yet it's anything but complicated.

Ritchie piles on the excess. It serves him well in fashioning a dazzling, detailed version of 1880s London, with the pardon-our-dust construction of the landmark Tower Bridge a pivotal element.

An Education (2009)
You may think you know where the film is going, but its ecstasy and heartbreak will stick with you afterward. It's one of the year's best.

Crazy Heart (2009)
The songs become anthems inhabited by Bridges, whose Bad Blake may wish his life had turned out differently but is never going to dribble tears in his shot glass so long as he still can find a stage somewhere to belt out a tune.

Nine (2009)
Calculated to be show-stoppers, the songs often end up as quaint throwbacks.

Jackson crafts lovely but ineffectual dreamscapes of the afterlife that eviscerate much of the human side of the story.

De Niro offers a master class of mannered, minimalist acting.

Old Dogs (2009)
Old Dogs is no fun whatsoever, just a collection of stale kibble.

Since the ninjas only come out when it's dark, most of the movie's fight scenes are low on both visibility and excitement.

The Road (2009)
Adapting a masterpiece such as The Road is a thankless task, but the film doesn't work on its own merits.

All three lovers are so joyless, it's hard to imagine why any of them would want to spend eternity together.
