Warriors of the Rainbow: Seediq Bale Part 1 (賽德克.巴萊[上]:太陽旗)

In “Seediq Bale” (賽德克‧巴萊), director Wei Te-sheng (魏德聖) asks viewers to suspend their preconceptions and get inside the ethics of the Seediq people, as the entire narrative unfolds “through the prism of Seediq beliefs.”
Conan the Barbarian (王者之劍3D)

No one ever turns into a giant snake in the new “Conan the Barbarian.”
Cowboys & Aliens (星際飆客)

The genre mash-up of “Cowboys & Aliens” is more a mush-up, an action yarn aiming to be both science fiction and Old West adventure but doing neither all that well.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes (猩球崛起)

“Rise of the Planet of the Apes” is first-class entertainment, packed with clever, unsettling and even inspired ideas. A well-crafted prequel to the long-running “Apes” series, it offers a few winks to fans of that cycle of films.
The Killer Who Never Kills (殺手歐陽盆栽)

Another Taiwanese singer has made his movie debut: Jam Hsiao (蕭敬騰). The popular entertainer stars as a sympathetic contract killer who saves lives, but fails short of saving his first feature film “The Killer Who Never Kills” (殺手歐陽盆栽).
Captain America: The First Avenger (美國隊長)

Let Tony Stark make the wisecracks and Nick Fury give the intimidating commands.
Wu Xia (武俠)

With this title and lead actor Donnie Yen (甄子丹), there was no doubt that “Wu Xia” (武俠) would be a quality action film. However, it is obvious that Cantonese director Peter Chan (陳可辛) has never limited his directorial projects to an action film.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2 (哈利波特:死神的聖物2)

After a decade following the adventures of our favorite boy wizard, those anticipating the epic showdown between Voldemort and Harry Potter will not be disappointed.
Transformers: Dark of the Moon (變形金剛3)

All the technical promise of decades of “aliens invade” thrillers, from “Independence Day” (ID4:星際終結者) through “Battle: Lost Angeles” (世界異戰), and the best comic character actors money can buy serve “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” well.
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (神鬼奇航:幽靈海)

At two hours and 16 minutes, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” — the fourth film in the ridiculously successful Disney franchise — is the shortest in the series. But it still feels overlong and overstuffed; needlessly convoluted yet, at the same time, phoned-in.
