  • It's a supernatural epic that never feels quite colossal or consequential enough, as well as an utter waste of Dwayne Johnson‘s unique dopey-flirty charm. show more

  • It may sound like a backhanded compliment to praise this sometimes cheesy movie for never taking itself too seriously, but in a summer of bloated spectacles, this modesty should not be underestimated. show more

  • Director Brett Ratner has always been associated with spectacle but, even for him, this represents a misstep because the "wow!" factor is muted. show more
