The heartbeat of “Transcendence” comes from solid performances in the leading roles.

I yearn for a summer movie season without sequels. I know, call me a dreamer, but watching movies like "Red 2" is positively dispiriting.

This exhausting film harps on the magician’s ultimate trick, misdirection. That word describes the very nature of "Now You See Me," which purports to tell a clever story when all it’s doing is whirling in an endless spiral.

Not all family films are created equal. This one was inspired by the remarkable real-life story of a dolphin named Winter who washed ashore in Florida, had to have its tail amputated, and taught itself to swim even without the appendage. As it turns out, that wasn’t the end of Winter’s challenges.
