The Expendables

The Expendables
You know that scene in every action movie since 1974 when the guy jumps into the water after being blown off an edge by a massive, flaming ball of death? Yeah, that's The Expendables in a nut. If it isn't on fire, crumbling to pieces, being chased by a thousand guys in face paint and getting torn apart by a rapid-fire shotgun, it probably isn't in The Expendables.

This is the kind of film we used to spit-ball with friends in a kind of 'wouldn't it be cool if...?' scenario all the biggest action stars coming together for one massive orgy of violence and bloodletting. Really, the concept is so tantalizing that we harboured a flickering flame of hope for this one; Sylvester Stallone called upon his action movie counterparts, roping in some of the biggest, toughest Ess-Oh-Bees out there for a movie that promised all the hallmarks of classic hard-action films we love to pieces (mostly things exploding and quippy one-liners).

From Paris with Love

From Paris with Love
John Travolta wipes out most of the Asian and Arab population of France in From Paris with Love, a plotless, pointless shoot 'em up directed by Pierre Morel (Taken) from a story by Luc Besson. Travolta plays Charlie Wax, a CIA operative sent to Paris to take down drug dealers or anyone who works in a Chinese restaurant or designs dresses or looks at him sideways or might be a terrorist, in this non-sensical ultra-violent R-rated action film that exists only to please those into high body counts.
Besson takes credit for the story, but really there's not much of an actual plot in evidence. I'm guessing that whatever storyline Besson initially came up with, he was able to jot down on a single post-it note. The hows and whys of what's going down on screen aren't nearly as important as the spiffy ways dreamed up to kill off at least 30, 40, maybe even 50 or more - who's counting? - of what I'm assuming are supposed to be bad guys over the course of an hour and a half. Travolta even employs a bazooka at one point to take out a car loaded with a bomb heading straight toward an American diplomatic caravan.

Guide to Recognizing Your Saints

Guide to Recognizing Your Saints
A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints illustrates that it's still possible to do something interesting with a familiar premise. Writer/director Dito Montiel, who has based the film on his memoirs, tells the story of a man who escaped from his "old" neighborhood to find success elsewhere, and hasn't looked back since. Now, with his father on his deathbed, he is trying to bridge a twenty year gap. The movie is not without flaws - editing has left parts of the film feeling choppy, there are a few too many directorial "flourishes," and the modern day segments get short shrift - but the performances are heartfelt and the ways in which Montiel refuses to oversentimentalize the story work.

Buffalo Soldiers

Buffalo Soldiers
During the summer of 2003, Miramax Films is courting controversy. First, with the release of The Magdalene Sisters, the distributor was accused of being anti-Catholic. Now, with the release of Buffalo Soldiers, the charge is one of being unpatriotic. It's easier to understand the former indictment than the latter one. The Magdalene Sisters is a good movie, but it's not hard to see why some Catholics would be offended by it. Buffalo Soldiers, however, is a dark satire in the same vein as M*A*S*H and Dr. Strangelove, and, just because it offers a negative portrayal of the U.S. military circa 1990, it's hardly fair or reasonable to label it as "anti-American."

Over the Hedge

Over the Hedge
Over the Hedge, a feature-length adaptation of the popular comic strip, offers further proof that the Golden Age of Digital Animation has come and gone. This is arguably the most entertaining animated film since The Incredibles, but it's not much more than an enjoyable diversion. There are cute CGI animals, clever dialogue, a satirical look at suburban America, and a preachy moral, but it doesn't amount to much. Considering how the marketplace has changed, maybe it's unfair to compare Over the Hedge with the likes of Toy Story, Shrek, and Finding Nemo, but there's a world of difference. Those films engaged audiences of all ages on a variety of levels. This one falls in their shadow in terms of both ambition and achievement.

I Am Love

I Am Love
I Am Love falls into the select category of films that are easier to admire than like. Director Luca Guadagnino's arm's length approach to the story creates a buffer between the audience and the main character - something that works well during the first half but fails to create the emotional resonance to provide the second hour with its full power. For I Am Love to succeed on all levels, one needs to empathize with Tilda Swinton's Emma, but the stylistic choices made by Guadagnino keep the viewer in the position of a detached observer. As good as Swinton's performance is, and it's very good, it is difficult to connect with Emma. In many ways, I Am Love becomes an exercise in studying technique and, while that's something scholars and film students may appreciate, it's not the most fulfilling way to approach a production for the average movie-goer.

City of Lost Children

City of Lost Children
In 1991, the creative team of Jean-Pierre Jeunet and Marc Caro introduced movie-goers to their nightmarish view of a post-apocalyptic world where troglodytes inhabited the underground and a butcher relied on apartment tenants to keep his meat cabinet full. Delicatessen, a bizarre black comedy, became something of a cult hit -- certainly not everyone's fare, but those who got it, loved it. Now, four years later, Jeunet and Caro are back, and, with their latest film, The City of Lost Children, it's apparent that they have neither moderated their approach nor mainstreamed their vision. The City of Lost Children is as visually striking and daringly offbeat as its predecessor.
