Tom Cruise fights for his life in 'Edge of Tomorrow.'
'Edge Of Tomorrow,' with an intriguing premise and the ability to see it through to a satisfying conclusion, is more than razzle-dazzle visual effects.

Truly original science-fiction ideas are few and far between, at least within the realm of Hollywood moviemaking, so "Oblivion" scores points for both its premise and its execution—up to a point.

'Jack Reacher' is ridiculous…and exciting…and funny…and cheesy. It’s also a great vehicle for Tom Cruise, even though readers of Lee Child’s best-selling novels are complaining that he doesn’t resemble the author’s description of that character.

It’s easy to see how 'Rock of Ages' became a crowd-pleaser on Broadway, where audiences got caught up in the energy of 80s hit songs performed live. The film adaptation (credited, astonishingly, to three screenwriters, including the show’s creator Chris D’Arenzio) is a dreary collection of clichés and caricatures that doesn’t have one ounce of honest emotion in its elongated 123 minutes.

Unlike most movie series, this one has actually improved with each new installment since its debut in 1996; the last one, directed by J.J. Abrams, reinvigorated the concept, while this fourth entry—which the studio seems to want to downplay as a 'Mission: Impossible' film, given the tiny typeface they’re using in its ads—is the best yet, a breathtaking, globe-trotting action yarn that pulls out all the stops.
