The movie manages to be humorous and witty enough at times to overcome the insanity of its plot and its more juvenile elements, but the final act in particular collapses the whole thing.
There are some interesting plot twists scattered amongst the predictable plot points, and the casting was diverse enough to follow the "world is at peace" premise. The ultimate faults of this movie are cheese and plot holes, in particular the man getting up and walking after supposed years of being comatose, especially considering he seemed to be hooked up to pretty standard (i.e. not advanced) medical equipment. They never mentioned he was a descendant of Beatrix Kiddo. This movie is, at best, a good first draft. It would need some serious editing to be considered good.
A deeply insightful and witty exploration of teen angst and, to a lesser degree, clique mentality.
These movies consistently face two problems: 1. the pop culture references they choose to parody are stale and clichéd by the time the movie comes out, and 2. even if they were more timely, the jokes just aren't that funny. Really, there's no chance of success here.
A phenomenal movie. Complex, engrossing script with a great twist ending, amazing cinematography, and ingenious use of bright red blood. Truly an amazing film.
Very exciting, suspenseful, insightful, and acted to perfection. I'm starving for a sequel.
An average story elevated by a brilliant color palette, an upbeat soundtrack, a talented cast, and funny jokes.
Enigmatic, suspenseful, deeply engrossing, and beautifully acted, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is a puzzle of a movie that viewers will enjoy piecing together.
It's not great storytelling by any means (not surprising, since it's Adam Sandler), but this is one of the few Adam Sandler movies that is actually funny.
This is your typical SyFy movie. Hyperbolic and poorly written in nearly every way.
Willow is undeniably cute and provides decent entertainment, but the story is too cliched and unoriginal to succeed.
Although the visuals in the movie are consistently great, The Polar Express suffers from bipolar disorder (much like two of its characters) and is too incoherently scattered.
Cheap special effects and a distracting plot leave The Serpent And The Rainbow colorless.
A blatantly banal and mediocre story any five-year-old is capable of writing that's full of unintentionally creepy animation, stereotypical characters, and awkward dialogue.
The Chipmunks hype is over. Can we all just accept that and move on?
There's nothing especially deep or groundbreaking about Rat Race and the plot is ludicrous, but at the end of the day it's funny.
Just from the trailer, I can tell this movie will be good.
Despite a somewhat bloated running time, Boogie Nights is a highly intriguing and engrossing look into the rise and fall of a pornstar in the 1980s.
This one manages to deliver much more than you'd expect. It's not perfect and perhaps doesn't explore the gender war as much as it could have, but the story is heart-warming, the characters are likeable, and overall it's an enjoyable experience.
To be honest, I thought this was quite ridiculous. It had a charm at times, but it was overshadowed by a pretty random plot with non-believable (and in some cases unlikeable) characters and a lack of focus.
