    Mile 22 is one nasty piece of work. It’s an action picture that’s hard-core to the core, populated entirely by killers with nary a truly sympathetic figure among them. But it does deliver.

    Hughes’ handling of the material is unfailingly serious but the picture’s tendency to stray into the ridiculous robs it of the majesty the director so clearly hoped to achieve.

    Thanks to McKinnon, “Spy” is a fun summer picture that is truly, weirdly special.

    It’s an absorbing character study of a most intriguing man.

    There’s the old cliché that says, “so-and-so is such a great actor he could read the phone book (whatever that is; as I said, it’s an old cliché) and make it interesting.” That’s pretty much what Washington pulls off in EQ2.

    There’s a lot going on here, which leads to a whole lot of gassy exposition to explain it all.... Think of it as torture by blah-blah.

    There is advocacy. And then there is propaganda. The Trolley, with its overcooked rhetoric, falls into the latter category.

    There are a lot of moving parts here, and Pearce fits them together with admirable skill. Originality isn’t his strong suit, but “Artemis” has enough snaky twists and turns and moody energy to make it a fun ride.

    At more than two hours, it’s simply too long. However, thanks to Collette’s work, “Hereditary” is a horror movie that really sinks its claws into you.

    Woodley and Claflin make an attractive pair, but they’re not particularly convincing playing people deeply, deeply in love. There’s something lacking in the conviction department there.

    Good fun, and all that, but its flawed central performance ultimately makes “Solo” a distinct disappointment.

    The picture is a no warts-and-all look at Francis’ papacy, but rather emphasizes his humanity and humility. Those personal qualities and his words are sources of hope In this politically fraught and fevered age.

    The original “Deadpool” caught lightning in a bottle. The sequel sparks only intermittently.

    Watch this movie and you might die, of boredom.

    The emphasis here is on the splashy spectacle with those insider-knowledge elements jammed together in a frenetic hodgepodge.

    Monster-movie fans will certainly get their money’s worth in this one.

    The blending of the realistic elements such as the planning and preparations for the raid with the more surreal aspects of the picture feels forced and awkward. In real life, the raid was an astonishing success, but the movie is ultimately a failure.

    Gringo has no spark, no fizz. Its scenes sag like overstretched taffy. Flavorless taffy.

    The visuals are gorgeous. The mood is unsettling from start to finish. Annihilation is a strong sophomore effort from a very talented filmmaker.

    As long as the third and, one hopes, final installment is, it feels even longer. There’s more of it, much more, yet paradoxically, much less.

    It’s a remarkable true tale of great heroism. It’s also an account of a clash of cultures.

    [Neeson's] impressive physicality, (a tower among men), his rumbly basso-profundo voice and his impressive demeanor give him a natural gravity that allows him to rise above the most absurd material. And he does exactly that in The Commuter.

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is reasonably clever and reasonably diverting.

    The humor is broad and obvious (yes, Ferdinand winds up in a china shop, with predictable results), but there are a number of scenes that hit the mark.

    Last Jedi is deep. It’s also rollicking. It’s right up there with the very first “Star Wars” in terms of its enjoyability factor. It’s a triumph.

    It’s heart that’s overflowing with love, poignancy, humor, color and music.

    With its well-drawn characters (a Linklater trademark) and mood of quiet restraint, Last Flag Flying touches the heart at a deep level.

    Only the super-speedy Flash, played by Ezra Miller, lightens up the proceedings. Miller’s goofy eager-beaver take on the character, very reminiscent of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man, is the picture’s saving grace.

    A colossal waste of time and the moviegoer’s dollars. That’s the bottom line of Daddy’s Home 2.

    Blade of the Immortal is a pretty good title for a samurai movie. I’ve got a better one: “10,000 Corpses.”
