RECENT 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."
Sean Penn stars as Andrew Daulton Lee, who was convicted of espionage for his involvement in selling U.S. intelligence to the Soviets, in 1985's "The Falcon and the Snowman."

Class of 1985: “The Falcon and the Snowman”

Although this biopic is mostly engaging, the truth of Christopher Boyce and Andrew Daulton Lee's lives may be stranger and stronger than its historical fiction.

Class of 1993: “Carlito’s Way”

With unexpected humanism and a dynamic Al Pacino performance, "Carlito's Way" remains the best film of Brian De Palma's compelling, often confounding, career.

Gangster Squad

Blunt and brisk in its own inoffensive way, "Gangster Squad" is still a piece of meathead cinema and one that's mostly sizzle, no steak.
