[ATTENTION: This review reveals content of the movie.]
It started out looking pretty promising what with the ape culture and different personalities in the ape city. Enter the humans, on a mission to restore the power dam. Human are depticted as laughably predictable stereotypes -- good human, bad human! You can tell who the bad humans are, they have long hair or don't shave enough and look kind of smelly. Also, they think apes are dumb animals. But wait! There are 'bad' apes, too so between the bad apes and the bad humans war is inevitable. The 'war' was a little confusing for a while, like who is winning here but don't worry, the music will tell you how to feel. Yes, the score. At every possible opportunity, the score was either very, very moving, or very, very ominous or well, just very, very whatever you the viewer are supposed to be feeling about all this just in case you weren't sure. This sound track re-defined intrusive. During the big battle scene the 'bad' ape actually rides a horse full tilt with a gun in each ala John Wayne in True Grit-- I nearly laughed out loud. The action (when not being interrupted by touching scenes of how nice and family oriented apes are) and clichés, are non-stop. There are a few cute moments of interaction between the 'good' humans (of course) and some of the apes, and the special effects are well done, but overall it's a waste of computer generated effects.

You think Jaws (rated 10!) was the first "scare on the beach movie?". If the criteria is predictability, only David Lynch movies should get above 8! And if we were to sick to original screenplay idea, we would only watch movies made before 1950!

Overall, this was a very entertaining movie. I was very pleased to see the 2 casts of X-men brought together. It's unfortunate that a few of the roles from great actors i.e. Halle Berry, Anna Paquin, Ian McKellan were diminished. Most of the focus is on the past events surrounding Wolverine, Xavier, Magneto, and Mystique. The SFX were top notch and the action and the suspense throughout was fantastic. There were some really neat action sequences, but nothing mind blowing. You essentially get what you'd expect from the X-Men series. I liked the dark post apocalyptic feel of the movie as it was a definite change for this series. The score is menacing and hopeful, at the same time. I didn't like that Xavier never explained how he survived the events of X-men The Last Stand. This is a glaring plot hole that could have easily been fixed with a quick flashback/expository scene. Please stay until the end of the credits. Might be important for the next sequel!!

Excellent dramatic fight for rights and survival. But-the ending left me cold. No pun intended- Chris Evans proves his acting ability.

I enjoyed this movie a lot. The CGI is extremely good, but the plot gets cheesy at times. It is well worth seeing which I did in 3D. Characters were quite predictable (good/bad in everyone), but overall one of the better movies of its type.

Mais qu'est ce qu'ont tous les critiques dans les journaux avec les comparaisons entre Volcano et Amour? Je viens de voir Volcano, qui est sur la reconquête d'un amour perdu, et la redécouverte de la vie par quelqu'un qui n'en attendait plus rien. Il n'a rien de la froideur clinique du film de Haneke. On est plus proche de Bergman ici, et il faut vraiment ne pas aller chercher bien loin ou bien être aveugle aux subtilités pour s'arrêter à la comparaison entre les deux films. Oui, les deux films parlent de personnes du troisième âge, et de la maladie de l'un d'entre eux. C'est tout, fini la comparaison. Le film de Haneke est très bien, mais Volcano dégage une douceur et une tendresse que j'ai rarement vues au cinéma, et certainement pas chez Haneke. La salle était en pleurs quand le film s'est terminé, je pense que c'est une des plus belles histoires d'amour que j'ai vus au cinéma. Il y avait peu de gens dans la salle quand j'y suis allé, j'espère qu'au moins les commentaires positifs vont encourager d'autres à venir découvrir ce film. Ce serait dommage de passer à côté.

There aren't a lot of movies that I would rate highly (mostly due to major 'suspension of disbelief' or absence of decent story-line or an overabundance of CGI) but I really enjoyed this film. This version of Sleeping Beauty is sweet and amusing (except for the 3 babysitting-fairies that I found too childish/annoying) And I love the music (although I thought it was Angelina who was singing the theme song!)

Dinesh D'Souza's writing does point out the good in America, but he fails to provide real balance in his point of view, particularly when it comes to slavery.

Being longtime fans of Hunter S. Thompson, and hungry for any new material about him and his 'sidekick' Ralph Steadman, my husband and I went to see this documentary about the man behind the crazy art that accompanied Hunter's writings. It was exciting and enlightening to see the genius of Steadman at work, step by step creating his style of art that has come to be a well-known expression of their disdain for the social and political ills of society when combined with Hunter's writings. We never understood, before this, the influence Steadman must have had on Hunter, and visa-versa. We thought Hunter was the crazy genius, but this documentary shows how they were both really meant to be together in this world. We both thought Johnny Depp's involvement was important as a friend who loved Hunter and who asked the few needed questions that revealed to us how important a person Steadman was to Hunter, and what an amazing artist and person Steadman is in his own right. His arrival in America and his first impressions of NYC were haunting and revealing of the kind of human being he is. We both recommend this documentary to anyone who loved Hunter Thompson. It really tells us an amazing and integral part of his story.

Terrible film. Tasteless. Not funny. Crude. Irritating beyond belief. Left as soon as I sensed my husband was feeling the same way. Avoid. SilverCity staff are always accommodating, and offered us passes because we did not have a good experience.

22 Jump Street is a movie that seems to take pride in the fact that it shoudn't even exist. Rarely has a sequel, particularly a comedic one, been so in love with the notion of trashing itself. From wink at the camera dialogue like "this case is EXACTLY like the last one" to a closing credit sequence showing audiences what 40 Jump Street would look like, this movie seems to get the absurdity of sequels in a way that very few films ever have. Hill and Tatum are yet again the big reason why it works as well as it does, although Ice Cube lends a big comedic hand this time. It meanders a little more than it should and the laughs aren't as plentiful nor as creative as 21. However, there are several side splitting moments and enough smug self awareness to make this a sequel that deserves a chance, even if its own writers clearly don't think so.

This may be appealing to some who are non critical and will watch anything religious. I would not sit through this movie if it was free. I would not watch it on a bus, a train or a plane... but I paid to see it, and I sat there for the entire movie, thinking something redeeming might happen. I mean, I like Greg Kinnear, and Kelly Reilly has potential, but there was NOTHING redeeming about this ridiculous and frankly pointless waste of time. It might be a good way to entertain the kids at Sunday school or on a rainy day at a religious summer camp, but for me there are way better ways to waste time and money!

David Schatzky

Unfocussed, scattered, but visually sometimes interesting despite the lack of context. As a documentary it needs a point of view, and one is left with the impression that a Burtynsky photograph is much more powerful and informative on its own than is a film inspired by his work. The bits and pieces showing Burtynsky at work seemed irrelevant and pointless.

Not really a big Jolie fan […] However, my Mrs. was going with a friend and so my 5 year old and I stayed to watch... thankfully through the whole movie, I might add. Well acted, only as much dialogue as the intelligent needed. Thinking of one review that seemed to want pointless nattering. Beautifully shot and a movie where 3D did make it a bit better yet. Best of all, a truly great version on an old tale that had been told the old way enough times already. Whether I liked her or not (Jolie), Maleficent couldn't have been played better. Best movie I recall all year and I almost didn't go! Thanks real people who put their reviews up here as well. 'Professional' critics have become virtually useless. Can't imagine what they didn't like here but clearly they are more about politics than real movie reviews. Power to the Cinemaclock reviewers... the real opinions that count.

We really liked this movie. The scenes of India were beautiful and educational. A very heartwarming story and the movie was produced with a wonderful portrayal of human thoughts, actions, and reactions. Go see it, you won't be sorry. It would have been nice for the ending excerpts to include the real players and where they were now.

I recently re-watched this movie after forgetting whether I liked it or not, and discovered once more why I completely forgot about this movie. The movie and characters are beyond cheesy, and there's just to twist to the plot. Dantes spends 1h20 min in a jail cell, 20 min as Count and maybe 15 min to fully accomplish his revenge. Really? So much for a climax (although to be fair, Dantes and the old mentor were very well played). If you're really looking for a movie based on vengeance but with a solid plot line, watch "The Mask of Zorro" with Antonio Banderas instead.

Charming is exactly the right word to describe this movie. There isn't a cliché not used but it was so well done that I just didn't care. Jon Favreau managed to pull off a very rare feat; he directed a really good movie which he wrote... and to top it off, starred in as well. All the characters were well acted and directed and it's worth the price of admission to see Sofia Vergara in action... she can't help but steal every scene she's in. It's a silly, feel good movie... but there's nothing wrong with that if it's done well... and this one is.

“Wow” what a waste of film, filmed to dark, endless no story - story line, killed off main actor first 15 min., then your stuck with junk film, until the last 15 min. When you get Godzilla action, and even that is flashed back and forth with more junk story line, If you need a reason to stop going to movies this is it! I wouldn’t even buy the DVD for 2.99$ Ok there was one good part (I got free popcorn).

Meeh... maybe just me, but these CGI show pieces are wearing thin. When will actors be simply made animated characters and not even have to act (but only supply voice)? Like Avatar, the hype preceded the delivery by a long shot. This one was ok, and I was so tempted to give it a 7. But... looking back, it's pretty much the same old. Give a guy with animation skills a couple of months and he can create a movie without having to build any props at all.

Very good movie, story, acting and effects. Successfull in creating a mood from the very beginning. The only negative: Saw it in unfortunately in Imax 3D, so I suggest that you do not waste the extra cash. The extra would be better spent on a better audio rather than unneeded supposedly enhanced viewing.

Another 'amazing' disappointment, I thought they might do better with this one than the 1st reboot movie. At this rate we are going to need another reboot!!! Yes, the visuals were good, but they had poor development and casting of Harry Osborn. All the villains seem to decide to make spider man their #1 enemy for no apparent reason (like the 1st reboot movie)! Very poor choice for an ending to the movie. Can't they just stick to a good comic storyline... there are so many... weird.

Should have been titled Noah and the Transformers. Well, given Cecile B. DeMille's early entry of the Ten Commandments into this genre of bad movies in fantasyland and literally 100's of silly tv and Hollywood movies made since then about the Bible, I suppose it was only a matter of time before we woke up to the fact that Hollywood is exposing the Bible for what it is to them, just one big morality play to exploit for cold hard cash. Did you get that Sarah Palin, these movies are fantasies, they are not to be taken as the literal truth? Of course, the Bible-thumping Christians sitting behind me didn't seem to know the difference either since they insisted on giving a running commentary on everything that was wrong with the story and laughed or snickered throughout, all of which made it rather difficult for me to enjoy how ridiculous the movie really was. Since the movie ad listed Noah as an adventure drama I didn't know it was in fact supposed to be an epic comedy. This is one for the books.

Given some of the negativity expressed, I thought it might be dire. Had a moment or two, solid acting, interesting visuals. Really, a pretty decent yarn, and relatively good way to escape for a couple of hours. That's the job statement, in my view. Costner was credible, Amber Heard a bit mis-cast, if lovely, but didn't let her role down. I do think Connie Nielsen, and especially Hailee Steinfeld pretty much flew the movie. In other years, perhaps a lower rating, but it's slim sledding out there. Not a classic, nor a film school topic piece, but that's OK!
