Everything about the movie is as clunky and unimaginative as the title.

The movie might satisfy bloodthirsty action fans, but for most people, this is one Stallone do-over we could have done without.

Untraceable (2008)
Untraceable is one of those deplorably gratuitous movies that wants to have it both ways, but gets nothing right.

U2 3D (2007)
The technique works best when it makes you feel as if you're immersed in the audience.

Someday, we're probably going to look back at There Will Be Blood, Paul Thomas Anderson's epic about greed, lies, manipulation and insanity, and call it his masterpiece.

Mad Money (2008)
Mad Money strains desperately for laughs.

Cloverfield (2008)
This monster mash-up is a lot of fun, creating some intense gross-out moments and maintaining suspense throughout its speedy running time.

27 Dresses (2008)
27 Dresses is so chock full of romantic-comedy clich├ęs, it almost plays like a parody.

Patrice Leconte has taken a story about male friendship, in all its posturing and potential vulnerability, and turned it into a light, smart, crowd-pleasing comedy.

Shoot 'Em Up (2007)
After about an hour, though, it all becomes a mind-numbing barrage.

Overwrought and overlong, Ang Lee's Lust, Caution nevertheless has some moments of exquisite beauty and a potentially star-making performance from newcomer Tang Wei.

Rails & Ties (2007)
It's hard to get over the implausibility of the premise in Micky Levy's script, even though the characters themselves acknowledge that they're in a ridiculous situation.

As in Antwone Fisher, which helped make a star of Derek Luke, Washington draws effortless performances from his young actors, which go a long way in making The Great Debaters more enjoyable than you might expect.

P.S. I Love You is as treacly as the title would suggest.

Judd Apatow can do no wrong, apparently.

It's strangely beautiful and beautifully strange, with horrific subject matter that produces plenty of wicked humor and characters who initially seem ghoulish but ultimately reveal themselves as sympathetic and deeply sad.

Charlie Wilson's War, a crisp, biting satire that confidently mixes sex and politics, glides along so smartly and smoothly, it makes you wonder how it's possible that director Mike Nichols and writer Aaron Sorkin have never teamed up before.

If nothing else, though, The Kite Runner does succeed in providing a vibrant window into a region of the world we might not have known and might have felt daunted to seek out.

I Am Legend (2007)
I Am Legend turns from a quiet meditation on the nature of humanity into a B-movie schlockfest.

Revolver (2005)
After 2002's terrible Swept Away and now Revolver, Ritchie has managed to make, back to back, two of the worst films any one director can lay claim to.

Atonement (2007)
It's just exceptionally well-crafted.

Trade (2007)
A documentary about sex trafficking might have been more powerful. Dramatizing the subject in this fashion, with a race-against-time road trip, breathless online bidding and a couple of different happy endings, simply cheapens it.
Posted Dec 3, 2007

Juno (2007)
Juno is the kind of movie all indie comedies wish they could be: light and lovable, perhaps a bit too pleased with the cleverness of its dialogue, but a small charmer nonetheless.

The Savages (2007)
Despite its dark humor, The Savages tackles the tough topics of aging, frailty, humiliation and death. All depressing stuff, to be sure, but Jenkins handles it with a delicate, relatable touch, and without being maudlin.

Redacted (2007)
Redacted might have been more compelling if De Palma had redacted himself a bit -- if he hadn't been so overt, if he'd given us enough credit to think for ourselves and come to our own conclusions about these men and the choices they made.

It's the actors themselves who all too often feel out of place.

Beowulf (2007)
Beowulf bellows 'I am Beowulf!' so many times, it could be a drinking game; it certainly rivals 'This is Sparta!' as the year's preferred macho catch phrase.

Much of the movie plays like a civics lesson.

Fred Claus (2007)
Veers awkwardly from shrill, slapsticky physical humour to diabolical meanness (courtesy of Spacey as an efficiency expert) to reheated, snuggly sentiments about the importance of love and family.

Bee Movie (2007)
Yet another animated flick with a starry cast in which a creature that ordinarily would seem pesky is rendered as not just harmless but even lovable and idiosyncratically human. Enough already.
