Salt

Salt
There are moments of well-crafted thrills in “Salt” and Jolie reliably carries them off, but the desire of the filmmakers to put off thinking about the finale until they absolutely had to produces a hollow lack of satisfaction instead of the thunderous catharsis they’re looking for. You could make a case that it is an excellent example of the kind of film it is, but it’s nothing more than that.[Lees verder]

Inception
Compared to most of this year’s releases, “Inception” should still impress and, at the very least, inspire some worthwhile discussion, but it’s hardly the heady blockbuster summertime savior that audiences have been waiting for.[Lees verder]

Inception
While this may not be Christopher Nolan’s most immediately accessible movie–it actually requires you to pay attention and use your brainÂ… yes, in the summer–it’s certainly his most personal and most daring film, the type of summer movie that leaves you thinking well after it’s over, immediately wanting to see it again in case you missed anything the first time.[Lees verder]

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice
I’m not asking for deep philosophy or character development, but something besides perfunctory plot development is needed or else you just get something hollow. “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice” is hollow.[Lees verder]

Despicable Me
A good vocal performance by Steve Carrell and a few gags work, which is about all that saves it from the junk pile, but not by much.[Lees verder]

Predators
If you’re a fan of the original “Predator,” then NimrГѓВіd Antal’s movie makes for a far more satisfying sequel than the weak 1990 follow-up or any of the “AvP” movies, maybe because it makes more of an effort to create the vibe and tension that worked so well in the original.[Lees verder]

The Last Airbender
While “The Last Airbender” is a great looking film that will entertain kids, problems with the script and acting make this a movie that adults will likely be bored with.[Lees verder]

The Twilight Saga: Eclipse
It’s not a great piece of filmmaking, but it’s competent and entertaining and only rarely silly and considering the hole the series has been in, that’s quite a feat.[Lees verder]

Grown Ups
While not the worst movie any of this cast have done, it’s far from their best work either, the results being a semi-funny “This is Your Life, Adam Sandler ” where the sum of the parts rarely achieves anything as funny as Sandler might have done on his own.[Lees verder]

Knight and Day
Instead of watching it, you’re better off putting “Knight and Day” in a time capsule and singing some Don McLean, ’cause this is the day the movie star died.[Lees verder]
