City by the Sea suffers from dialogue that often sounds like convenient exposition as well as from a climax that feels too pat and prosaic. But the film is peppered with small, explosive scenes that have a refreshing complexity.

For all its merits, One Hour Photo winds up as just another exercise in genre, although an assured and effective one.

Even at his most obnoxious, Evans remains a fascinating figure.

Undisputed (2002)
Undisputed isn't exactly memorable, and as far as its prison setting goes, it has nothing on HBO's infinitely more brutal Oz. But as late-summer time killers go, you could do worse.

Simone (2002)
Simone doesn't have anything to say about the vapidity of celebrity culture, other than the obvious.

Aniston's performance conclusively proves something she had only hinted at before: She's the Friend most likely to become a bona fide movie star.

Blood Work (2002)
If it's not entirely memorable, the movie is certainly easy to watch.

2.5/4
Leaves you wishing Rodriguez had saved some of his ideas for another movie. There's a difference between fast-paced and chaotic, and Spy Kids 2 often blurs the line between the two.

Signs (2002)
Brooding, gripping movie that held a recent preview audience in such rapt attention, you couldn't hear a single candy wrapper crinkle.

Full Frontal (2002)
What's surprising about Full Frontal is that despite its overt self-awareness, parts of the movie still manage to break past the artifice and thoroughly engage you.

Tadpole (2002)
A low-budget affair, Tadpole was shot on digital video, and the images often look smeary and blurry, to the point of distraction. Then again, in a better movie, you might not have noticed.

Often, the film feels more like a state of mind, combining the factual hardness of a documentary with the startling beauty of a surreal, fantastic dream.

A movie that sends you out of the theater feeling like you've actually spent time living in another community.

For all its great potential, Reign of Fire turns out to be just another bughunt movie -- a disappointingly talky, haphazard one.

Runs a quick 80 minutes and yet it still feels padded.

A soggy coming-of-age drama, one loaded with a single fresh conceit and plenty of tired, wheezing ones.
