THE BOTTOM LINE: Hartnett elevates a by-the-numbers crime drama

Don’t expect “Inherit the Viper” to be a great film, but you can expect a nice performance by Josh Hartnett. He elevates a pretty average crime drama into something watchable....

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Midway’ delivers a riveting, historical drama

“Midway” is a surprisingly solid historical drama that faithfully mixes fact with old Hollywood melodrama. There’s a bit too much reliance on CGI, and the dialogue is a bit stiff,...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘The Hurt Locker’ Remains a Riveting, Devastating Look at War

A decade after it won Best Picture, “The Hurt Locker” still holds up as an authentic, unflinching look at the men who go to war, and how they deal with...

THE BOTTOM LINE: There’s Still a Little Magic in the Aging Comedy Duo

"Jay and Silent Bob Reboot" isn’t the comedy revelation you would hope for. It’s silly and obscene, but it misses as much as it hits. A lot of the jokes...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Judy’ soars on Zellweger’s masterful performance.

‘Judy' isn’t quite the comprehensive biopic you would hope for and it doesn’t pack the emotional punch it should have. However, Renee Zellweger is fantastic in the lead, and her...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Last Blood’ is a Disappointing End for an Iconic Hero

Rambo deserves far better than this by-the-numbers rush job of an actioner. It does little to evoke the themes or feel of previous films, and relies on disjointed, often gory...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Universal Soldier still kills it after all these years

Universal Soldier is hardly a classic, but it’s a lot of fun, and features both Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren at their best. Don’t take it too seriously, and...

THE BOTTOM LINE: Anna is serviceable, but isn’t quite unique

Anna will remind you of many other “female spy” films, including some of Luc Besson’s classics. That's not a bad thing at all. While it isn’t quite original, it is...

It isn’t the definitive vampire film, but Daybreakers will surprise you with its approach. There are themes of conservationism and class warfare, but there is also plenty of blood and...

THE BOTTOM LINE: ‘Lock Up’ is 80s Stallone at his cliche-laden best

The plot is predictable, and you’ll get every prison-movie trope ever conceived, but Stallone somehow makes it all watchable. The 4K transfer shows significant improvement to the video over previous...
