It's so perfectly contrived and mechanical and fresh as a daisy, it's infuriating. And only the sly, insistently subversive Christopher Plummer is on our side.1965
[Book] has been brought to the screen with a Jumbotron sensibility, a shaky camera to emphasize the action and a shakier grip on the subject's emotional core.2012
A canned 'feisty-pants' Disney product and 'Wicked' knockoff from start to finish.2013
A largely humorless movie that plays like the sensitive white man-goes-native saga, Dances with Wolves in Outer Space.2009
In emphasizing angst over energy, the movie is much like its hero -- not the dashing crime fighter in a bodysuit but the introspective nerd who both endears and exasperates.2002
Judging by the the movie's enduring popularity, the message that stupidity is redemption is clearly what a lot of Americans want to hear.1994
Now, seen in the actual 2001, it's less a visionary masterpiece than a crackpot Looney Tune, pretentious, abysmally slow, amateurishly acted and, above all, wrong.1968
Noisy, slick, and shallow, Scott's MTV-like actioner became emblematic of 1980s blockbusters, reflecting in its macho bravado and cheap elitism the mood of the Reagan era.1986
ReviewMovieYear
Spends so much time being cleverly hip and spoofing all things Disney that it struggles to find its own identity.2001
The movie's dragged down by a droopy male lead, [saccharine narration], music the filmmakers lean on like a car horn and an insulting, inconsistent approach to elderly dementia.2004
An overwhelming and indistinguishable deluge of flying wreckage, sporadic explosions, and gnarled heaps of metal.2007
[Film] is the story of one packrat pre-tween princess whose [...] kingdom is only matched in depth by her remarkable sense of consumer-minded entitlement.1989
I've had mosquito bites that were more passionate than this undead, unrequited, and altogether un-fun pseudo-romantic riff on Romeo and Juliet.2008
A film that worships itself with every frame. A sprawling, boisterous fantasy, but one that takes itself as seriously as if it were a documentary.2002
Mr. Bolt has reduced the vast upheaval of the Russian Revolution to the banalities of a doomed romance.1965
