A snowplow driver goes on a mission of revenge after a family member dies mysteriously.

Vanity Fair’s Richard Lawson calls it “an engrossing kind of misfire, far more intriguing for its experiments in style than for being yet another movie about a taciturn Neeson taking names.” Wall Street Journal’s Joe Morgenstern is unimpressed: “The stupidity lacks smarts in the script department.”

FEATURED STORIES

Rolling Stone’s Peter Travers calls it “an infuriating mess … has already earned a place among the year’s worst movies.” The Atlantic’s David Sims, however, posits, “‘Serenity’ may not make it onto many critics’ top 10 lists come the end of 2019. But it’s certain to be one of the more unforgettable viewing experiences of the year.”

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

Directed by Mike Mitchell; voiced by Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett

Denizens of the toy world face the threat of alien invaders in this sequel to the 2014 movie.

Christy Lemire of RogerEbert.com says, “While it’s a lot of fun, it isn’t as consistently clever or thrilling as its predecessor.” Detroit News’ Adam Graham did not feel as entertained: “‘Lego 2’ is like stepping on a Lego.”

Directed by Todd Strauss-Schulson; stars Rebel Wilson, Priyanka Chopra, Liam Hemsworth, Adam DeVine

Cynical about love, an architect is knocked unconscious and wakes up in an alternate world.
