The Adjustment Bureau (命運規劃局)

With his thick build and narrow stare, Matt Damon has proven effective and often surprisingly affecting as killing machines (“The Bourne trilogy”), athletes (“Invictus”) and even blowhards (“The Informant!”, “True Grit”) — men who stand apart from everyone around them.
I Am Number Four (獵殺第四行者)

Great, another Chosen One. The action tale “I Am Number Four” is mostly familiar stuff, presenting the latest teen outsider coming into possession of his latent superpowers just in time to battle evil forces intent on world chaos.
The Green Hornet (青蜂俠)

Someday, hopefully someday soon, 3D will be exposed for the sham that it is.
Shaolin (新少林寺)

A commercial kung fu film in every sense but one; “Shaolin” possesses a nationalist urgency that treads into historically murky waters.
Season of the Witch (魔女神兵)

So here's the gimmick in “Season of the Witch”: It takes place during the 14th century, but everyone speaks in contemporary language, which might have been acceptable if the dialogue were clever or intelligent or funny or, you know, good.
Tron: Legacy (創:光速戰記)

Hugely high-tech and forward-thinking in its day, “Tron” now looks cheesy and quaint in retrospect, with its blocky graphics and simplistic blips and bleeps.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 (哈利波特:死神的聖物Ⅰ)

The long goodbye for the most successful film series of the century thus far begins with “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1,” the darkest and least characteristic of the batch.
Red (超危險特工)

Critics often gripe about the blink-and-you've-missed-it frenzy of action sequences in today's Hollywood thrillers.
Legend of the Fist: The Return of Chen Zhen (陳真:精武風雲)

What do you get if you cross a wartime kung fu drama with Donnie Yen (甄子丹) fist-pumping to Andrew Lau's beat? The answer is another remake of the 1972 Bruce Lee classic “Fist of Fury.”
City Under Siege (全城戒備)

In summing up “City Under Siege” (全城戒備) you could just use one word: ridiculous. But actually, it's beyond that.
