  • A smart aleck-y kidnapping caper that whooshes around to a thumping electronic beat. show more

  • A mercilessly convoluted version of a Twister, that genre in which the plot whacks us as if it's taking batting practice. I will not hint at anything that happens. I will simply observe that it's all entertaining. show more

  • Nobel Son is not good. Nor is it bad. It exists, instead, somewhere in the middle ground of interesting enough to hold one's attention without actually providing any fresh, sensible or nonderivative developments. show more

    This was a great movie. Bryan Greenberg was fantastic as Barkley and Alan Rickman was great as always.
