Whoever to combine torture porn with an indictment of our legal system should be chopped limb from limb.

'Law Abiding Citizen' Wants to Have its Gore and Condemn it Toonew

Somewhere in here is a call to reform for a flawed system where innocence is undermined by bureaucracy. But it's hard to hear that message with all the explosions and brooding. Say what you will about Saw -- at least it doesn't preach pacifism as its characters are eviscerated.

Star Power Shorts Out in Be Coolnew

Gray should be cutting Tarantino royalty checks considering how much he lifts from that director's act. Travolta and Thurman re-do their Pulp Fiction sexy dance, and black characters launch irate Tarantino-esque monologues over the use of the "N" word.

The follow-up to Elmore Leanard's Get Shorty is rife with star talent but short on inspiration.

Get Shoddynew

Be Cool is redundant to the point of being absolutely pointless, a sequel that's almost a note-for-note, beat-for-beat redo of its predecessor, only with all the entertaining stuff left out.
