Scorsese expends some much time and effort creating atmosphere and setting up situations, that when the big revelation finally arrives, expectations are so high that the pay off is a letdown.

The movie, directed by Martin Campbell, is solid entertainment, with a decent script and some choice dialogue.

Crazy Heart (2009)
The movie serves as a showcase for Bridges. Through his body language and demeanor, you can imagine the toll the years of wear and tear have inflicted.

A Single Man (2009)
"A Single Man" is a tender, subtle and elegant feature. It is sensitive, soulful and true to its time.

"The Lovely Bones" is a skeleton of a movie, lacking any sense of life and vitality.

3.5/4
"The Young Victoria" is a sumptuous character study that takes its time charting the transformation of a young girl born to rule into a queen ready to rule.

4/4
Director Lee Daniels shows you a world scarier than any imagined for some horror film because it is real -- just outside our doors or around the corner

Nine (2009)
As a musical -- and a movie -- "Nine" is not at all memorable. It is cheesy and underwhelming.

3/4
What is appealing is to see a romantic date movie in which the protagonists are well past puberty and are likely AARP members.

4/4
"Up in the Air" belongs to Clooney. He easily fits into a character who is at ease with himself and enjoys living a lifestyle in which he can go about unencumbered.

3.5/4
Invictus (2009)
As directed by Clint Eastwood, "Invictus" is an inspirational story about fortitude, spirit and reconciliation.

A cynic may consider "Everybody's Fine" schmaltzy hogwash; others may want to call or write their fathers just to remind them that they are loved and not forgotten.

An Education (2009)
The screenplay by author Nick Hornby is exceptional: Witty, observant and wise.

4/4
Sheen gives a magnificent performance. His Clough is a character you can neither like nor admire. You watch this walking train wreck in amazement as he continually steps on his own feet with his overactive mouth.

As I left the theater, I found that my thumbs ached. I hadn't realized that, during certain parts of the movie, I was pressing imaginary buttons as if trying to control some video game.

"New Moon" is basically a 130-minute chick flick during which the three main protagonists spend a lot of time looking with cow eyes at each other's faces.

2012 (2009)
It is as if screenwriters Roland Emmerich, who also directed, and Harald Kloser simply screened earlier films and borrowed bits and pieces.
