An intense trip to 'The Town'

Directed by and starring Ben Affleck, this Boston heist story is a well-written and superbly cast drama with some of the most intense robbery scenes since Samuel L. Jackson held up McDowell's in Coming to America. OK, bad example. They're considerably more intense than that.

'Devil' delivers close-quartered thrills

Maybe it's because M. Night Shyamalan didn't direct, more so because he didn't write, and further more because he apparently only conceived of the story, but 'Devil' is a surprisingly tense thriller in the vein of horror-meets-whodunnit.

'Resident' Boredom

Sometime, somewhere, someone said, "I'd like to see Milla Jovovich throw projectiles at me, but not really."

Whenever, wherever, whoever...

'The American' delivers quiet suspense

Funny enough, The American seems more European.

Oceans apart from the high-octane, erratically shot suspense thrillers that are far too...

'Machete' a fun return to the grindhouse

'Machete' is exactly what you'd expect from a full-length feature based on a faux B-movie trailer.

An exorcise in banality

David Stamm's 'The Last Exorcism' is the horror movie that almost could.

Regal Cinema 7 - Now in 3-D!

After years of "Sorry, not shown in 3-D" disclaimers, Boone's Regal Cinema 7 has finally entered the next dimension.

'Piranha' remake a bloody good time

'Piranha 3-D' is like a Roman orgy of cinematic decadence, a gleefully gratuitous gore- and flesh-fest that knows its place and, surprisingly, does not bite.

'Scott Pilgrim' wins the day

Scott Pilgrim represents one of director Edgar Wright's bolder moves, a headfirst trip into its characters' fantastical interpretation of reality, infused with video game lore and comic book know-how, where stylized fights come out of nowhere, defeated villains burst into coins, and enough points earn a much-needed 1-up.

'Expendables' fun but forgettable

Everything about Sylvester Stallone's testosterone-fueled, ultra-violent The Expendables is over the top, and not in that Stallone arm-wrestling sense.

Fun time with 'The Other Guys'

Directed by Adam McKay (Anchorman), The Other Guys is genuinely funny, its experienced stars and writers (McKay and Chris Henchy) working in hilarious harmony to deliver laughs aplenty - more than anyone would expect from a summer comedy.

Efron stares in 'Charlie St. Cloud'

Charlie St. Cloud is a movie with a message, and that is, "Zac Efron has blue eyes."

'Dinner for Schmucks' a fare comedy

Steve Carell serves some laughs, but a flavorless screenplay with watered down writing leaves Dinner for Schmucks in the drive-thru lane.

'Salt' low on flavor

Remember that Angelina Jolie movie? The one where she shoots at things, all attractive like?

Then she jumps on a moving vehicle, and shoots...

'Inception' most brilliant

Can Christopher Nolan make a bad film?

Considering his track record (Memento, The Prestige, The Dark Knight, to name a few), it sounds like...

'Sorcerer's Apprentice' low on magic

For a movie about magic, Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice is like a hat without a rabbit - no magic, but hey, nice hat.

'Predators' is old-school fun

Most action directors seem to take the term "fast-paced" too literally, making sure their shooting style mirrors the quick-moving narrative. Not director Nimrod Antal, who has made an old-school, action-packed, suspenseful and, most importantly, fun sequel in Predators.

'Last Airbender' breaks wind

Despite decent special effects and some colorful closing credits, Airbender is pure "B," falling in that "so bad it's good" category, the same reserved for ironic viewing and homespun riffing - funny, but in the wrong ways.

Cruise-Diaz chemistry saves formulaic Knight

Tom Cruise hasn't come a long way from leaping maniacally on Oprah Winfrey's couch.
