Prison break blast

By Dave Taylor
The film opens three years in the past, with John and Lara a happily married couple, doting on their 3-year-old son Luke (played at 3 by twins Tyler and Toby Green, then at 6 by Ty Simpkins). Theyre passionately in love and have a good life together.

Flatline

By Dave Taylor
The film opens with a scene of blue energy bolts shooting into Los Angeles and emitting a hypnotic ray that causes people to walk blindly into the light, just to be sucked up into the sky and thence into the bowels of a strange, alien vessel. Flash back 15 hours to when Brooklyn couple Jarrod (Eric Balfour) and Elaine (Scottie Thompson) land in L.

Guilty of misdirection

By Dave Taylor
Kenny Waters (the always-superb Sam Rockwell) is the redneck brother of Betty Anne Waters (Hilary Swank). Set in the small rural town of Ayer, Mass., I felt like every single character in the film was an unpleasant stereotypical hillbilly swearing, drinking, fighting and mistreating their spouses and children.

Charming, in a bloody way

By Dave Taylor
The next scene launches the viewer three years ahead to a Texas border town. The story changes to Senator McLaughlin (Robert De Niro) running for re-election on a draconian anti-immigration platform. His cynical media manipulation plan includes hiring a Mexican day laborer to hurt, but not kill, him.

Making a game of it

By Dave Taylor
Scott (Michael Cera) is a 23-year-old slacker living in Toronto. He has no job and just drifts from activity to activity, notably including playing bass in his band “Sex Bob-Omb.

An indecisive mash-up

By Dave Taylor
NYPD super-cops Highsmith (Samuel L. Jackson, who has become a parody of himself) and Danson (the ever-likable Dwayne Johnson) overshadow everyone else in their precinct with their ludicrously over-the-top heroics in the line of duty. $12 million in damages to capture criminals with a quarter-pound of marijuana? All in a day’s work.

Well-seasoned action flick

By Dave Taylor
There’s a half-hearted attempt to portray Salt’s domestic side in a scene where she’s watching a YouTube video on folding napkins so that her anniversary dinner will be “perfect,” but that’s quickly forgotten once Russian defector Orlov (Daniel Olbrychski) shows up and accuses her of being a sleeper agent.

Magic needed

By Dave Taylor
The result is a film that, while enjoyable, is shallow and unsatisfying, demonstrating yet again that Nic Cage has forgotten how to act. He walks through his role as Master Sorcerer Balthazar Blake, and even in scenes when he should have been elated, terrified or angry, bland Nic Cage is all we get.

Nolan delivers again

By Dave Taylor
Inception is one of the most complicated stories I’ve ever seen on the big screen, but if you can figure out what’s going on, it’s an amazing movie filled with mind-boggling visuals and an intriguing exploration of the subconscious. It might also be the best movie of the summer, if not 2010.

Too much violence — despicable

By Dave Taylor
The story has Gru (voice of Steve Carell trying to sound Russian) as an evil mastermind, ensconced in suburbia. Beneath his house is a vast subterranean lair where he’s plotting to (insert evil laugh) commit the perfect crime.
