This lengthy adaptation of the highly acclaimed superhero epic—which many consider the greatest graphic novel—remains faithful to its source material, retaining most of the complex storytelling, stunning visuals, heady themes, and R-rated content.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine
The summer movie season kicks off with a merely serviceable prequel to the X-Men franchise, recounting the tragic back-story of everyone's favorite claw-wielding mutant.
Nearly 60 years after his debut in Japan, the teen robotic superhero finally gets a big-screen computer-animated feature with predictable but pleasing results.
The Dark Knight Rises
A rousing and satisfying—if conventional—conclusion that fails to rise to the level of excellence of its predecessors.
Iron Man 3
Two movies about power—Pain & Gain and Iron Man 3—that remain strangely toothless.
Man of Steel
Snyder's Superman reboot is visually stunning and well-acted, but lacks the humanity of The Kings of Summer, a little coming-of-age movie with a big heart.
