    REVIEW | "Hanna" is the Ass-Kicker that "Sucker Punch" Wanted to Be

    In "Hanna," director Joe Wright successfully recycles almost every action movie trope of the past decade.

    In "Kati with an I," documentarian Robert Greene ("Owning the Weather") turns his camera on his teenage half-sister on the brink of her high school graduation.

    Upgrading her production values without compromising her minimalist style, Kelly Reichardt has nonetheless made her most accessible movie with "Meek's Cutoff," a spare, defiantly unconventional western that traffics in atmosphere and the subversion of expectations rather than any kind of easy resolu...

    movie review: Source Code

    Source Code is perfectly agreeable entertainment, so long as you don’t ask too much of it. It has an intriguing science-fiction premise that hints at deeper issues but, in truth, the movie doesn’t want to disturb us or make us think too much.

    REVIEW | Adrien Brody's Diminishing Returns Continue With "Wrecked"

    Here's a triple bill dying to be made: "Buried," in which Ryan Reynolds spends the entire running time in a coffin; "127 Hours," featuring James Franco, an immovable boulder and little else; and the newly released "Wrecked," a modest survival tale starring Adrian Brody as a car-crash victim trapped ...

    REVIEW | Duncan Jones' "Source Code" Messes With Your Head and Your Heart

    Drawing on time-shifting concepts reminiscent of "Groundhog Day" and "Run Lola Run," Duncan Jones' "Source Code" inhabits the spirit of old-school sci-fi while effectively providing a measure of pathos. As he did in his prior film, "Moon," "Source Code" showcases Jones' ability to provide ample ente...
