MOVIE REVIEWS
 
Liam Neeson and Joel Kinnaman play a father and son trying to survive a mobster's wrath in "Run All Night," a 2015 Warner Brothers release.

Run All Night

A well-made movie that could have been better, in which the quiet, talkie parts are more interesting than the mayhem.
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.

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.

Tales from the Darkside (1990)

"Tales From The Darkside" rides the wave of 1980s anthology horror, but the stories seem to be too little, too late despite the "King" and "Romero" tags.

John Wick

"John Wick" holds no candle to Keanu Reeves' holy trinity of action films, but it should count as time off for good behavior from his stint in movie jail.

Out of the Furnace

A gripping slow-burn thriller, "Out of the Furnace" is an unrelenting slice of red-blooded Americana.

Arrow Inside

Arrow: Season 1

DC and the CW have finally hit the mark with a dark, modern-day reimagining of one of DC's finest superheroes, Green Arrow.

Chalán (Gofer)

Despite giving away an important plot twist in the opening sequence, "Gofer" oozes genuine drama.

Parker

"Parker" isn't run-of-the-mill. It's the work of misfits who broke into a mill shuttered on the edge of town and fired up machines without knowing how they work.
The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2

The Expendables are back and blowing every bad guy and '80s action movie cliche out of the water.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “Licence to Kill”

Timothy Dalton didn't have much time to probe 007's psyche. But the small things add up to a bigger accomplishment than is usually acknowledged.

You Only Live Twenty-Thrice: “For Your Eyes Only”

After "Moonraker," the franchise had nowhere to go but up. What a surprise to see some vision restored to the series, even if it's sometimes far from 20/20.

Contraband

This unexpectedly shrewd and efficient, if imperfect, Murphy's Law thriller is probably as close to that "Italian Job" sequel as Mark Wahlberg will ever get.

Setup

50 Cent is surprisingly not the weak link in this modern-day heist film.
