Bride Of The Wind Review


Weak
Sarah Wynter doesn't quite have the chops, Bruce Beresford doesn't quite have the heart, and the audience probably doesn't have anywhere near the level of interest to sustain this biopic about Alma Mahler nee Schindler, the wife of composer Gustav Mahler and the mistress of a handful of other men down the line. The thesis here is that There's Something About Alma, something that inspires greatness in artists of all forms (including painter Gustav Klimt), but Beresford never gets close to putting his finger on just what that is.

The 6th Day Review


OK
You've seen the ads. You know the story. So is The 6th Day the same movie as Total Recall, just without the blonde? Not really, but don't feel bad if you have a little déjà vu along the way.

Rest assured, you're watching an Arnold Schwarzenegger vehicle. This time he's not a spy or a commando, he's Adam Gibson, an extreme snowboarding tour guide in the not-so-distant future, an era that includes a company called RePet can clone your dog, cat, or snake. Or you can pick up a Sim-Pal, a child-size doll (with real hair that grows) that makes for one of the creepiest props I've seen since that miniature, squirting chicken in Eraserhead.

Lost Souls Review


Terrible
It looks like Winona Ryder gets two strikes in a row in 2000, as the long-delayed Lost Souls emerges as one of the worst duds of the year. How bad can it be? Well, the only moments of terror in this ostensible horror flick are brought about by the appearance of the words "Producer: Meg Ryan," giving you chills in a way that only those words can.

Hopefully the last in a line of man vs. devil movies let loose by Y2K hysteria coupled with the success of The Sixth Sense (which wisely steered clear of religious metaphors altogether), Lost Souls actually ranks below End of Days and just about ties the pitiful Bless the Child for sheer badness.

Race Against Time Review


Grim
Cary Elwes as bad guy? Eric Roberts as good guy? What could be more bizarre... except this farfetched tale of legalized suicide in the near future that has Roberts on the run from an Evil Medical Establishment run by Chris Sarandon(!) Some relatively big stars went to a lot of trouble to make a real mess of a movie that basically has Roberts on the run from armored guards for an hour and change.

Lost Souls Review


Weak

If spooky movies based on tenets of Catholicism are your bag, you can do a lot worse than "Lost Souls," in which Winona Ryder stars as a once-possessed woman trying to find and save a man destined to become Satan incarnate.

It's no "Exorcist" -- although it is cashing in on that film's rerelease -- but at least this faith-based frightener doesn't invent "missing" books of the Bible to advance its plot like the pathetic action hybrid "End of Days." At least it's not inundated with shopworn demonic clichés like the pathetic "Bless the Child." At least it's not just an exercise in style over substance, like the Goth/MTV genre entry "Stigmata."

No, "Lost Souls" actually has quite a bit going for it before narrative loose ends begin to unravel the whole picture.

The 6th Day Review


Grim

Underneath "The 6th Day's" Schwarzenegger schmaltz of expensive explosions, showpiece stunts and utterly extraneous jet-helicopter chases, there's an intelligent cautionary thriller about science run amuck which has been trampled to death.

Taking place in a future that is "sooner than you think" -- a high-gloss world of virtual girlfriends, self-driving cars and illegal cloning -- the plot is basically a rehash of "Total Recall" in which Arnold plays a seemingly average joe whose life is turned upside-down by the cogs of a giant conspiracy.

Schwarzenegger is Adam Gibson, an oh-so-suburban dad who owns a souped-up helicopter charter service. On the day he's been hired to drop a paranoid billionaire (Tony Goldwyn) on a mountain top for a day of skiing, Adam switches chopper duties with his business partner (Michael Rapaport) so he can go to the mall and get a RePet -- a genetic copy of the family dog -- before his daughter finds out the critter died.

Bride Of The Wind Review


Weak

The supernaturally beautiful and intelligently pensive-looking Sarah Wynter makes quite an entrance as Alma Mahler at the beginning of "Bride of the Wind."

Arriving at a cocktail party in turn-of-the-Century Vienna, she sheds her wrap to reveal a corseted red dress that would be a knockout even if the scene wasn't shot in black-and-white with the dress the only splash of color. Director Bruce Beresford is just illustrating the point that when Alma entered a room, people noticed.

As she passes through the party, the color follows her, bringing the screen to life, but even without the aid of symbolic contrast, Wynter ("American Psycho," "The 6th Day") would still dominate the frame. This is as it should be since her character is a woman who captured the hearts and inspired the works of several great artists of her time.
