Get Him To The Greek Review


Very Good
With all the hallmarks of an Apatow production (vulgarity, racy humour, adults acting like children), this Forgetting Sarah Marshall spin-off is lively and silly enough to keep us giggling. But its darker moments make the tone rather uneven.

Aaron (Hill) works at a Los Angeles record label that's struggling to make money, so he proposes restaging the iconic Greek Theater gig by fading rock star Aldous Snow (Brand) 10 years ago. Then his intense boss (Combs) sends Aaron to London to accompany the notoriously unreliable Aldous back to L.A. by way of New York and Las Vegas. And of course nothing goes as planned, all coloured by trouble both guys are having with their girlfriends (Moss and Byrne). Will they make it to the Greek in time?

Law Abiding Citizen Review


Weak
Super-slick filmmaking masks this thriller's reprehensible message that violence can solve any problem. It's so beautifully shot and nicely underplayed by the cast that viewers could be fooled into believing that it's coherent or acceptable. But it's neither.

Clyde (Butler) has his happy life destroyed when a psycho (Stolte) kills his wife and daughter, but his lawyer Nick (Foxx) accepts a plea bargain that lets the killer out of jail in three years. A decade later, Clyde starts his revenge. A spot of brutal torture and murder lands him in prison, but he continues from behind bars with his violent mission to take down the legal system. It's up to Nick and a cop (Meaney) to figure out how he's doing this before he kills them too.

Battle Of The Brave Review


Weak
Epic romance, period setting (18th century war between Britain and France over control of Canada), amazing cast (check out the last few names), Celine Dion song on the soundtrack... sounds like a recipe for success. Unfortunately, it was not to be. The film was retitled from its original Nouvelle-France to the generic Battle of the Brave and eventually dumped on DVD, at least in the U.S.

Backflash Review


Good
As it is, Ray's (Robert Patrick) video store isn't doing so hot (maybe locating it in the desert isn't the best idea...), but when he stops to pick up a hitchhiking Harley (Jennifer Esposito) -- fresh out of prison -- his life gets even crazier. Harley, it seems, has a couple million illicit dollars stashed in a safe deposit box, and maybe she'll take Ray along to get it out, promising him half. But what's the story with Colm Meaney's mobster on her trail? And Harley's old partner -- where'd he go?

While there's a fair amount of confusion in Backflash (a title which really means nothing but which I guess someone thought sounded cool), the twists are fairly garden variety and can be spotted coming from a mile away. Ray is a patsy in this whole thing? Well of course he is, just as sure as he'll find a way out of it. Or is Ray really running the show?

Claire Dolan Review


OK
A clinically austere art house film, Claire Dolan is Lodge Kerrigan's follow-up to the rigorous Clean, Shaven. He opens with cool, carefully composed images of impassive skyscrapers, a hollow wind whistling through, before moving to the reticent, emotionally disconnected title character.

Claire Dolan (Katrin Cartlidge, Naked) is a high priced prostitute, so down on her luck she phones her johns from a pay phone. "I miss you. I want to see you. I really want you inside me. I can be there in ten minutes." All her human interaction is reduced to a minimalist bargaining of her goods for exchange.

The Englishman Who Went Up A Hill But Came Down A Mountain Review


Very Good
If you're expecting a big joke about the unfortunate title of this film, you'll be disappointed. Everyone else has done it already. I saw the film late, and I'm just not falling into that trap.

With that out of the way, The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain refers to the title character, Hugh Grant, who is given this wacky Welsh nickname as the result of some wacky events surrounding the wacky title hill/mountain.

Monument Ave. Review


Good
Weird little Ted Demme movie about (what else?) drugs and thugs. Denis Leary plays a low-level gangster in an Irish mob, forced to maintain utmost secrecy when one of his best friends is capped by the boss right in front of his eyes (and in a rather jarring sequence). Curious story, it tells us about loyalty but never says whether that's a good or a bad thing. Not to mention, it's always tough to take Leary seriously in a dramatic role. At least he really is Irish.

Mystery, Alaska Review


OK
Oh no. Someone let David E. Kelley out of his cage for a second time this year. This time, the water in his Lake Placid is frozen over, giving us the setting for Mystery, Alaska.

The title's surely a Mystery and gives you no clues about the film - so what's it all about? Those expecting a schlocky horror flick like Lake Placid will be let down. Is it a surreal and light dramedy like Ally McBeal? That's closer. Reality: Mystery, Alaska is simply a grown-up version of The Mighty Ducks. Hey, this is a Disney film.

Layer Cake Review


Good
A stylish, dynamic thicket of thorny underworld twistsand deceptions, "Layer Cake" stars Daniel Craig ("Roadto Perdition," "EnduringLove") in a charismatically dodgy performanceas "a businessman whose commodity happens to be cocaine."

Beginning with a voice-over that provides cheeky insightinto the savvy it takes to stay ahead in Britain's organized-crime drugtrade, he sets the stage for a story full of unexpected sharp edges thatmake it increasingly unlikely his character will ever reach his statedgoal of early retirement.

"You know why people like you can't leave this business?You make too much money for people like me," says Craig's boss (KennethCranham), an uncouth kingpin who puts on country-club airs as he intimidatesour anonymous hero (whose name is never mentioned) into a job way out ofhis depth -- hunting down an associate's sexy, strung-out missing daughter.

But the girl is barely a jumping-off point for the stimulatinglybyzantine plot of "Layer Cake," in which one stupid mistake byan irresponsibly flashy small-time associate who calls himself "TheDuke" (Jamie Foreman) begins a domino effect of revelations, double-crosses,paybacks and bursts of violence -- all of which come tumbling down on Craig'shead.
