Harrison Ford is a tall drink of water... no, make that a tall drink of lemonade, in this film that features easily one of Ford's best performances. He smolders, absolutely smolders as John Book, a Ph…
Now, people who know me well know that I have a soft spot for disaster movies. I want to see that tidal wave destroy a major coastal city! I want to see famous landmarks topple, blow up, or crack in h…
Honestly, even at nearly two-and-a-half hours long, there’s nary a wasted second or throwaway scene or drawn-out sequence that could have been snipped in director David Fincher’s dark and enthralling …
Jake Gyllenhaal, from the moment he is on screen, is fantastically riveting. I won't say he is unrecognizable in his role as Lou Bloom, a conscience-free opportunist with a shocking lack of moral comp…

More than that, though, Mr. Brooks looks to be the best worst movie that will be released in 2007—it is so spectacularly bad that it’s almost brilliant in its crappiness and I fully expect it to clean…
The names on the movie poster should make any action-movie fan drool: Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Willis, Li, Lundgren, Statham, Rourke, and on, and on. My god, ALL these ass-kickers in one movie??! Yes…
