"Robocop" marks Brazilian documentarian-turned action director José Padilha’s American debut, but it doesn’t reveal anything other than an ability to execute high-octane action scenes.

When a movie has as much going for it as this one, it’s discouraging when it doesn’t deliver on its promise. Yet 'Lawless' pulls the magician’s trick of distraction, offering enough superficial entertainment value—with atmospheric use of locations, charismatic actors, and spurts of shocking violence—to divert attention from its faults.

It’s almost too much to hope for: a summer blockbuster that’s compelling, original, well-crafted and perfectly cast. Yet that is precisely what director and co-writer Christopher Nolan has given us in 'The Dark Knight Rises'.

I told Meryl Streep, “I hope you know you are loved,” and she said she did at that moment, even though “I thought my career was washed up twenty years ago.”

When a film has so many attributes—including superior performances and a tangible sense of time, place, and atmosphere—it’s tempting to overlook its shortcomings. That wouldn’t be honest, but at least I can begin on a positive note. From the casting of Gary Oldman as veteran MI6 agent George Smiley to the depiction of life in the espionage community of the 1970s, 'Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy' delivers the goods.
