MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Vin Diesel and Deepika Padukone star in "xXx: Return of Xander Cage," a 2017 Revolution Studios / Paramount Pictures film.

xXx: Return of Xander Cage

Both the worst of the series and difficult to really begrudge, "xXx: Return of Xander Cage" is what passes for January action-movie alchemy.
Nicolas Cage stars as Eddie King, an unhinged criminal, in "Arsenal," a 2017 Lionsgate release.

Arsenal

Nicolas Cage's unexpected revival of one of his campiest characters elevates, however slightly, an otherwise unremarkable VOD disaster.

Mitch Henessey (Samuel L. Jackson) and Charly Baltimore (Geena Davis) try to take down evil government rogues in "The Long Kiss Goodnight," Renny Harlin's 1996 action-thriller distributed by New Line Cinema.

Class of 1996: ‘The Long Kiss Goodnight’ / ‘Broken Arrow’

It's been one helluva year. So let's just talk about some great 1996 explosions, OK?
Marion Cotillard and Brad Pitt star in "Allied," a 2016 Paramount Pictures release directed by Robert Zemeckis.

Richie Gecko (Quentin Tarantino) and Seth Gecko (George Clooney) look on in disbelief as Santanico Pandemonium (Salma Hayek) holds court in 1996's "From Dusk Till Dawn," a Dimension Films release.

Class of 1996: ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’

Quentin Tarantino & Robert Rodriguez's vampire-siege flick sizzles like capsaicin-spiked grindhouse meatloaf baked & served under the wire of its sell-by date.
Tom Cruise plays Jack Reacher in "Jack Reacher: Never Go Back" from Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Jack Reacher: Never Go Back

The worst movie Tom Cruise has ever made. Sadder still? He knows it, too.

Before he cracks heads, Christian Wolff (Ben Affleck) must crunch some numbers in "The Accountant," a 2016 action-drama from Warner Brothers.

The Accountant

"The Accountant" embraces icy reserve early before turning blowtorches of dull sentiment, clunky exposition, unsurprising surprises & illogical twists upon it.

Deepwater Horizon

A multimillion-dollar movie about mistakes made to hold onto one-millionth of a profit percentage, but it mostly finds value in the right places.
