    Assassin’s Creed Review

    Assassin’s Creed is a step in the right direction for video game movies but slick action and beautiful visuals are undercut by a hollow hero story.

    It toys with some interesting concepts, but Morgan ultimately favors generic action over developing its core ideas into something more fascinating.

  • Bad Moms Review

    Bad Moms Review

    Bad Moms deserves credit for mixing things up in the genre, but its reliance on caricatures prevents it from being as memorable as it could have been.

  • Jason Bourne Review

    Jason Bourne Review

    Jason Bourne is a serviceable Bourne franchise installment, but an uninventive and unnecessary epilogue to the original Bourne movie trilogy.

  • Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Review

    Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates Review

    Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates hits the basic mandates of R-rated comedy but falls flat in its effort to be as insightful as it is funny.

  • The Legend of Tarzan Review

    The Legend of Tarzan Review

    There’s a great Tarzan adventure somewhere in Legend of Tarzan, but the movie is too overstuffed and rough around the edges to fly high.
