5.5/10
African Cats doesn't quite do justice to its strange and remarkable subjects. It gets them ready for their close-ups, all right. But it stops short of seeing through to their souls.

Rio (2011)
It's a little disconcerting at first when Blu opens his mouth to speak and Mark Zuckerberg's voice comes out.

6.5/10
In the end, The Conspirator stumbles under the moral weight it's trying to carry. What matters, maybe, is that Redford didn't take the easy way out and lighten the load.

Soul Surfer (2011)
Soul Surfer is the kind of sturdy, satisfying family drama that doesn't get made very often anymore. But even beyond that, at crucial moments it shows there's actually a brain behind the camera.

Hanna (2011)
Wright applies an artful eye to carnage; he and production designer Sarah Greenwood exhaustively deploy their love for finding colors that mirror the characters' psychological states.

Arthur (2011)
The surest way to kill comedy is to protect your audience, in advance, from being offended by it. And that's among the least of the problems with this new Arthur.

Caan is the spicy mustard on this fatty corned beef sandwich of a movie; without him, Henry's Crime is a filling meal that wouldn't linger in the memory.

While Mo'Nique's performance is the barnburner, it is Sidibe and her classmates who resonate, who inhabit a world outside of themselves and their wretched fiefdoms.

Trust (2011)
The psychology of trauma and the trauma of familial psychology are densely interlaced and vividly portrayed in Trust. It's a feat of unexpected difficulty from David Schwimmer, and it earns the elusive commodity invoked by the title.

Source Code (2011)
Saddled with CG effects that will only be passable on your smart phone, or from the back seat of a minivan, it's as if the looniness of the Code plot is out to undermine the highly wound, tightly cut beginning -- the camera shakes from too much adrenaline.

Super (2011)
The action in Super is clumsy and triggers cringe-producing consequences that make you wonder about the sanity of its protagonist.

Rubber (2011)
Dupieux's idea, apparently, is that movie audiences are so stupid they'll consume anything, and the more tickets he sells for this arch little piece of junk, the more he'll be proved right. If I were you, I'd refuse to give him that satisfaction.

Insidious (2011)
Wan feels torn between telling a scary story and making a "scary" movie, and the viewer is ultimately stranded between the two impulses.

[The] film teems with characters who are in fact white, Irish and drinkers. And, as you might have guessed from its title, Drinkers is as full of cheap sentimentality and predictable behavior as a Hell's Kitchen bar would have been in the 1970s.

Limitless (2011)
The secret to making a great, or even just a good, thriller these days seems to have been lost. Maybe the key is not so much feeling invincible as knowing what your limits are.

Paul (2011)
What's funniest about Paul however, is that each of its characters is stunned out of their complacency, right down to a humorous and touching revelation in the climax.

Aside from a few arresting visuals, Red Riding Hood is just a slog through the woods.

Jane Eyre (2011)
Watching Jane Eyre, I envied those who have never read the book: What would it be like to watch this movie without already knowing all of the story's secrets? Miraculously, Fukunaga preserves much of the book's spooky mysteriousnes.

Certified Copy is something unique to Kiarostami's career, bringing to mind an adjective I never thought I'd append to him: adorable.

Radnor shows an assured hand with his cast, and rather than try to force a plot the actor-director defines his film by the characters.

Beastly (2011)
Beastly manages to show you all the ways it might have worked by missing every available mark, sometimes by the gaping expanse between Alex Pettyfer's ears, sometimes only by the feline curl of Vanessa Hudgens' smile.

Damon's resolve is admirable -- a purity of heart that shows he's trying to will a movie into being.

Rango (2011)
Verbinski has made an animated feature unlike any other on the current mainstream landscape: For a big-budget animated picture, Rango sure is an odd little varmint.

Nothing that happens in Take Me Home Tonight is surprising or affecting, and none of it is funny, either.

There's a lot that works in Heartbeats -- so much that its flaws stand out in disappointingly sharp relief.
