With its strong cast, great action sequences and suspenseful atmosphere, “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” triumphs as commendable blockbuster entertainment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Even with Schwarzenegger leading the charge, “Sabotage” bites the dust.
“Divergent” tries to come into its own but fails in its strive for individuality, all because it can’t recognize the absence of color and depth within its uninteresting personality.
“300: Rise of an Empire” revels in its ancestor’s distinctive blood-soaked glory, and therefore wins over fans thirsting to see Greece and Persia do battle again.
“Non-Stop” is a passable airplane thriller, designed to entertain while up in the air and to be forgotten once disembarking.
High on spectacle and history, but low on acting caliber and story, “Pompeii” gets trapped in its own unrelenting rain of volcanic fire.
“Winter’s Tale” sports elegant visuals and has its beautiful moments, but its thematically overstuffed romance, due in no small part to underdeveloped supernatural aspects and several cases of miscasting, falls short of a tale worth telling.
Zipping with energetic heart and undeniable fun, “The Lego Movie” is well-built entertainment for the whole family, and a dream come true for Lego fans.
