Efforts to restore investor confidence in Greece's struggling economy took a double blow this week when a major European bottler and a prominent dairy company announced relocation plans.

This time, it's ticket buyers who get 'Taken'

In nature, lightning occasionally strikes the same place twice. In the movies, it almost never happens. So as good as Liam Neeson was in “Taken,” as good as he often is in “Taken 2,” the sequel - about the family of all those Albanians he killed in “Taken” taking their revenge - is an often silly movie where the strain to stay credulous shows.

'Watch' breathes life into familiar genre

You've seen the buddy cop movie a million times before, especially the mismatched buddy cop movie. Having the police officers come from different racial backgrounds is an especially tried-and-true element of this genre; it allows them to make fun of each other for the way they talk, the stuff they like, the activities that take up their free time. It's good for a reliable laugh, in theory.

Your time's all that will be 'Stolen' with this thriller

At some point during the filming of the heist thriller “Stolen,” in which he plays an FBI agent chasing an elusive master thief (Nicolas Cage), Danny Huston must have said “Waaaaaillll shoo.' I'm-o wear me this heyah porkpie hat from heyah on out. See if I don't, Cher.”

A 'Premium Rush' through Manhattan

Michael Shannon plays a villain with “impulse-control issues” in the bike-courier thriller “Premium Rush.” Shannon fans will salivate at the thought of that. Nobody can turn on the “impulse-control” scary like Michael Shannon.

Expanding the Expendables too much

Every blow 'em up movie fan should be ready to be even more “exciterbated” by the entourage of even more outdated action heroes in “The Expendables 2.” The group of soldiers-for-hire is led by Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), who takes charge of another mission devised by spy boss Church (Bruce Willis).

A new legacy is 'Bourne'

"The Bourne Legacy" picks up where the last Bourne film left off. But this time, without Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) himself. Director Tony Gilroy maintains the quality and tone set by director Paul Greengrass in the last two Bourne movies, but uses a new protagonist, Aaron Cross (Jeremy Renner), who was trained like Bourne to be a secret super agent.

'Dark Knight Rises' ends as epic letdown

Christopher Nolan concludes his Batman trilogy in typically spectacular, ambitious fashion with “The Dark Knight Rises,” but the feeling of frustration and disappointment is unshakable.
