The A-Team Review


Terrible
Jarringly over-edited with virtually no space for character or plot coherence, Carnahan's noisy movie strains to turn the corny 1980s TV show into something achingly hip and cool. But this only works in very brief moments.

Eight years after meeting during an action caper, four fast-thinking US Rangers are an unstoppable military team: organisational expert Hannibal (Neeson), charm-merchant Face (Cooper), tough-driving BA (Jackson) and riotously unpredictable Murdock (Copley). But when a CIA-sponsored raid goes wrong, they end up on the wrong side of the law, pursued by a slippery CIA operative (Wilson) and a hard-as-nails military officer (Biel) who has a history with Face. And they'll need to blast rather a lot of things to smithereens to prove their innocence.

Chaos (2005) Review


Grim
Though it ended up going straight to DVD in the U.S. (after earning a total of about $1 million in France), Chaos surprises by opening with a real bang. Might something good actually come of this? The film opens with a big bank heist -- always a reliable crowd-pleaser -- in which Wesley Snipes' Lorenz holes up and makes a bunch of demands, including that suspended cop Quentin Conners (Jason Statham) be brought in to negotiate. But just when things look like they're going to get interesting, Lorenz blows up the bank, the hostages all run out, and Lorenz vanishes... along with the movie's engagement.

Chaos immediately descends into doldrums, with Conners and extremely strange partner Shane (Ryan Phillippe) trying to figure out who Lorenz is and why he robbed a bank but didn't steal anything. Cat and mouse ensues, Seven style, until we figure out the truth that's been telegraphed since the very beginning. (And trust me, everything you need to fill in the pieces can be found in the last two paragraphs.)

Klepto Review


OK
Now here's a funny idea: Kleptomaniac teen and shopping mall security guard fall in love and have a grand adventure.

Cute premise, and Klepto is indeed plenty charming... but ultimately it becomes too serious for its own good, forgetting that it's basically, you know, a love story between a kleptomaniac (and otherwise troubled) teen and shopping mall security guard that is better played for ironic laughs.

Mission: Impossible Review


Weak
You heard it here first: When big Mission: Impossible TV fans leave the theater after seeing the film version of their favorite TV show, the most common opinion will be, "I'm pissed off."

Telling you why would spoil what little plot Mission: Impossibleactually has, so I won't. Instead, let me try to shed a little light on what is a messy, uneven production that had so much promise but delivers so little.

When Night Is Falling Review


Weak
You know right from the start that When Night Is Falling isn't going to be the uplifting tale that you might have thought it would be, as it cuts quickly from a bizarre underwater dream to a scene in which the main character, Camille (Pascale Bussières), discovers her dog has died.

Patricia Rozema's odd melodrama tells Camille's story. A Calvinist professor at a Christian college, she is on the fast track to a position as co-Chaplain of the university along with her conservative boyfriend Martin (Henry Czerny). Suddenly, circus performance artist Petra (Rachael Crawford) comes into her life, and everything changes. Petra is almost obsessively infatuated with Camille, and the once-traditionalist Camille very quickly finds herself developing an inexplicable attraction for Petra.

Clear And Present Danger Review


Weak
Jack Ryan returns for a third outing in Clear and Present Danger, reuniting Harrison Ford's Ryan with director Phillip Noyce, who also directed Ford-as-Ryan in Patriot Games.

Too bad that with plenty of raw material (notably Willem Dafoe as an American mercenary working in Columbia), Danger comes up awfully short. For starters, what is our CIA hero doing poking around in the Colubian drug trade? Sure, he's rooting out a huge conspiracy that goes all the way up the U.S. political ranks, but must we be subjected to endless Latino stereotypes en route to that? Clancy is always at his best when he's dealing with terrorists or Russians. Here we have a plot (nearly 2 1/2 hours in length) that trots out the usual exploding drug factories and endless cartel assassinations. Ryan's escape from a troublesome mission is infamous for the bad guys' repeated inability to hit a near-motionless target.

The Ice Storm Review


Excellent
Kitschy seventies comedy does battle with some painful dramatics in Ang Lee's highly-regarded The Ice Storm, but the question of which of these wins is still in the air.

It's 1973, and the sexual revolution is in full bloom. So are the thick shag carpets, glass-bead necklaces, Watergate hearings, and teen angst. And its an Arctic Thanksgiving weekend in Connecticut where these things all come together, at the home of a small and highly dysfunctional family.

The Exorcism Of Emily Rose Review


Weak

Part spine-tingling horror movie, part unorthodox courtroom drama, "The Exorcism of Emily Rose" maintains a surprisingly deft balance between the two parts of its plot, but still runs into trouble because it's ironically more credible as the former than the latter.

Inspired by the real trial of a priest (Tom Wilkinson) charged with negligent homicide for an exorcism gone wrong, co-writer and director Scott Derrickson provides the film with flashbacks to the alleged possession of a naive Catholic college student (newcomer Jennifer Carpenter) that are far more down-to-earth than any effects-driven exorcism chiller -- and therefore more disturbing as well.

Carpenter's ability to contort her face and body into seemingly broken forms is spooky enough all on its own, but add her over-dilated eyes, her bug-eating, her self-mutilation, her demonic speaking-in-tongues and the decaying faces with scooped-out eyes she sees all around her, and Emily Rose makes "The Exorcist's" Regan MacNeil look like a carnival ride.
