Nothing fantastic or supernatural ever happens, but you can still feel cosmic forces at work behind the scenes, conspiring to repeatedly test the movie's characters, doling out reward and punishment in equal doses.

As the intended start of a franchise, The Bourne Identity is a bit of a bust.

Windtalkers (2002)
The script is riddled with so many cliches, you count on the battle scenes to wake you from your stupor.

Bad Company (2002)
Schumacher bungles the action sequences as badly as he bungled Batman and Robin, and he pushes the violence to the limits of the PG-13 rating.

An informative, nostalgic trip back to a fascinating era, told by those who knew it best.

It's a testament to how effective The Sum of All Fears really is that it sends you home feeling more scared than you were before.

The movie isn't just hilarious: It's witty and inventive, too, and in hindsight, it isn't even all that dumb.

Insomnia (2002)
Proves the 32-year-old Nolan is the real deal, a gifted storyteller who knows how to use style, mood and composition to illustrate his characters' inner lives along with their actions.

A beautifully rendered but unimaginatively plotted cartoon about settlers, Native Americans and the horses caught in between.

About a Boy (2002)
The summer movie season has barely begun, and already we have its first big surprise.

Attack of the Clones is a triumph of technology over humanity, and if it falls short of a completely fulfilling experience, it also achieves the kind of primal emotion movies were invented for: wonder.

As bizarre as it is, Vincent's gradual estrangement from society is also easy to identify with, which makes Time Out especially compelling.

Deuces Wild (2002)
It's the sort of thing Roger Corman would have cranked out in the 1960s to fill out the bottom half of a drive-in double bill, except Corman would have never taken himself this seriously.

While Hollywood Ending has its share of belly laughs (including a knockout of a closing line), the movie winds up feeling like a great missed opportunity.

Spider-Man (2002)
[Raimi's] passion for his source material is evident in every frame of this big, light, endearingly square movie.

The actors do a good job of overcoming the stagebound feel of The Cat's Meow, which, for all its charms, sometimes feels as self-obsessed as the characters it slyly mocks.

Schroeder is sometimes able to disguise his contempt for the material and elevate it into something serviceable (like Single White Female). In Murder by Numbers, though, even Schroeder can't keep his own boredom from showing.

The story begged for a darker, more biting resolution, but that might have been deemed too bleak for a movie that is almost entirely bile.

Frailty (2002)
It's the cinematic equivalent of a good page-turner, and even if it's nonsense, its claws dig surprisingly deep.

At heart, the film is not that far removed from a well-written soap opera, but its modern-day Delhi setting and its cultural subtexts make up for the pat familiarity of its situations.

1.5/4
The cinematic equivalent of being poked in the ribs with a fork for two hours, this relentlessly irritating comedy redefines the term 'over the top' -- and we don't mean that as a compliment.
