Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson returns as DSS Agent Luke Hobbs in "Furious Seven," a 2015 Universal Pictures release directed by James Wan.

Furious Seven

It respectfully sends off Paul Walker amid momentum microbursts, but "Furious Seven" feels more like joyless, obligatory due diligence than a fun thrill ride.

Julius J. Carry III stars as Sho'Nuff in "The Last Dragon," a 1985 TriStar Pictures release.

Class of 1985: “The Last Dragon”

Striking a funky, daffy, multi-genre, low-budget sweet spot, “The Last Dragon” takes an inner-city poke at the hero’s journey without taking the piss out of it.
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.
