Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

The filmmakers can go through the motions again, but for the first time in the 25-year-old franchise, it seems like folly to do so.


Izzy Gets the F--- Across Town

Izzy does come across as a one-note character until the movie's climactic confrontation.


The Catcher Was a Spy

The shift toward spy craft is far less fascinating than the man behind it.


A Kid Like Jake

A Kid Like Jake dances around its central subject.


Incredibles 2

Their super-heroics feel genuinely super.


Tag

Tomsic's approach to the hijinks is almost cartoon-like, which is fine for, well, cartoons.


Superfly

It's one thing to update a movie for modern sensibilities. It's an entirely other thing to miss the point of what you're remaking.


Gotti

There's not really a story here. It's more a series of recognizable scenes from any number of gangster movies.


Hearts Beat Loud

Establishes its central relationship subtly, naturally, and thoroughly.
