Mel Gibson Crosses the Line in 'Edge of Darkness'new

In the pair of emotionally contradictory images that open Mel Gibson’s Edge of Darkness, swollen corpses surfacing on a moonlit river are followed without pause by grainy home video of a little girl playing in the surf.

Looking Back: Mel Gibson Atones, Defeated

Acting in his first film since 2003, Mel Gibson is a bit rusty as retiring Boston homicide detective Thomas Craven in a part corporate-thriller and part old-school revenge fantasy that feels dated from the start.

James Blondnew

This is the James Bond origin story wherein we get to discover, along with incoming blond Bond Daniel Craig, where 007 got his suave daredeviltry.

Cool newcomer Daniel Craig and this third adaptation of Casino Royale give us OO7 at his most lethal.

Bond Beginsnew

Bond has gone dark, very dark in this latest 007 installment, which marks a return to an original Ian Fleming novel as its literary source.

The Best Superspy Yet

Daniel Craig more than capably fills 007's shoes in a Bond film that shatters formula constraints and delivers nail-biting action in a considerably darker mode.

Foiled Againnew

Maybe it's time for this tired old blade to stop swinging.

Whereas the Zorro of yore was a cunning subversive with a libidinous guerrilla panache, this new take with a tyke added is more like Leave It to Zorro.

The Legend of Zorro

The film falls flat in its seriously siesta-inducing pace.

As far as this belated Zorro sequel is concerned, better never than late.

Sequel Taints Your Memory of First Filmnew

Despite reuniting Antonio Banderas, Catherine Zeta-Jones and director Martin Campbell, The Legend of Zorro proves so sloppy, silly and over-acted that the signature "Z" should stand for "Zero."

The Moore, The Merrier

The Legend of Zorro recalls the preposterous fun of 1970s James Bond.
