MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Sean Penn stars in "The Gunman," a 2015 action-thriller directed by Pierre Morel ("Taken") and released by Open Road Films.

The Gunman

An ill fit for Sean Penn on fronts of art and altruism, "The Gunman" plays like something the actor, co-writer and producer probably loathes: "voluntourism."
Liam Neeson is a father trying to save his son from a mobster's wrath in "Run All Night," a 2015 Warner Brothers release.

Run All Night

Wheezing, limping and lumbering all night much more than it runs, Liam Neeson's most arthritic action movie to date isn't one with a number wedged in its title.

Sharlto Copley provides the motion-capture performance and voice of the robotic title character in "Chappie," a 2015 Columbia Pictures release directed by Neill Blomkamp.

Chappie

"Chappie" is neither the easy kind of bad nor the sort from which co-writer / director Neill Blomkamp can't bounce back ... but damn, does it hurt to watch.

INDIANAPOLIS!! Win Passes to “Chappie”!

Win free movie passes to see the new sci-fi action film "Chappie," starring Hugh Jackman and Sigourney Weaver, directed by Neill Blomkamp of "District 9"!

"Seventh Son" (2015) starring Jeff Bridges.

Seventh Son

"Seventh Son," starring Jeff Bridges, is a serviceable sword-and-sorcery movie that offers just enough for genre fans.
Lien Chen (Wei Tang) and Nicholas Hathaway flee after a violent attack from nefarious hackers in Universal Pictures' techno-thriller "Blackhat," directed by Michael Mann.

Blackhat

Because we know the muscularity of which Michael Mann is capable, something so flabby feels frustrating — even as it's bleak, brooding, beautiful and watchable.

Liam Neeson reprises his role as Bryan Mills — on the run after being framed for the murder of his ex-wife — in "Tak3n," a 2015 release by 20th Century Fox.

Tak3n

"Tak3n" picks up where the series disappointingly left off — Liam Neeson as more badass than dadass — but at least the actor makes a go at his character again.
