Directed By: Tony Leondis

Adjusted Score: 16313%
Critics Consensus: The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature may be a slight improvement over its predecessor, but its frantic animated antics still offer minimal entertainment to all but the least discriminating viewers.

Directed By: Cal Brunker

Adjusted Score: 27408%
Critics Consensus: Cacophonous, thinly plotted, and boasting state-of-the-art special effects, The Last Knight is pretty much what you'd expect from the fifth installment of the Transformers franchise.
Synopsis: As war with the Transformers rages on, inventor Cade Yeager forms an unlikely alliance with Bumblebee, an English lord and... [More]
Directed By: Michael Bay


All Eyez on Me (2017)

Adjusted Score: 21890%
Critics Consensus: Despite Demetrius Shipp Jr.'s fine lead performance, All Eyez on Me is mostly a surface-skimming, by-the-numbers biopic of a larger-than-life icon.
Synopsis: The true and untold story of prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur (Demetrius Shipp Jr.), from his early... [More]
Directed By: Benny Boom

Directed By: Nikolaj Arcel


The Mummy (2017)

Adjusted Score: 30511%
Critics Consensus: Lacking the campy fun of the franchise's most recent entries and failing to deliver many monster-movie thrills, The Mummy suggests a speedy unraveling for the Dark Universe.
Synopsis: A battle in the Middle East accidentally unearths Ahmanet, a betrayed Egyptian princess who was entombed under the desert. Now,... [More]
Directed By: Alex Kurtzman


The House (2017)

Adjusted Score: 22311%
Critics Consensus: The House squanders a decent premise and a talented cast on thin characterizations and a shortage of comic momentum.
Synopsis: Desperate for money, a couple and their neighbor start an underground casino in their quiet suburban neighborhood. As the money... [More]
Directed By: Andrew Jay Cohen


Wish Upon (2017)

Adjusted Score: 22943%
Critics Consensus: Wish Upon is neither scary nor original, but its fundamental flaws as a horror movie may make it destination viewing for after-midnight camp genre enthusiasts.
Synopsis: A teen (Joey King) starts to veer down a dark and dangerous path when an old music box grants her... [More]
Directed By: John R. Leonetti


Baywatch (2017)

Adjusted Score: 28934%
Critics Consensus: Baywatch takes its source material's jiggle factor to R-rated levels, but lacks the original's campy charm -- and leaves its charming stars flailing in the shallows.
Synopsis: When a dangerous crime wave hits the beach, Mitch Buchannon leads his elite squad of lifeguards on a mission to... [More]
Directed By: Seth Gordon

Adjusted Score: 20786%
Critics Consensus: With an all-new cast but the same juvenile humor, Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul finds the franchise still stuck in arrested -- and largely unfunny -- development.
Synopsis: Young Greg Heffley must accompany the rest of his family on a road trip for a relative's birthday celebration. His... [More]
Directed By: David Bowers

Adjusted Score: 23787%
Critics Consensus: No consensus yet.
Synopsis: Young Bruce Lee is trying to make a name for himself while working as a martial arts instructor in 1964... [More]
Directed By: George Nolfi

Adjusted Score: 27729%
Critics Consensus: The Book of Henry deserves a few points for ambition, but its tonal juggling act -- and a deeply maudlin twist -- may leave viewers gaping in disbelief rather than choking back tears.
Synopsis: An 11-year-old boy devises a plan to help the girl next door whose family harbors a dark and dangerous secret.... [More]
Directed By: Colin Trevorrow

Adjusted Score: 43460%
Critics Consensus: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword piles mounds of modern action flash on an age-old tale -- and wipes out much of what made it a classic story in the first place.
Synopsis: Robbed of his birthright, Arthur grows up the hard way in the back alleys of the city, not knowing who... [More]
Directed By: Guy Ritchie

Adjusted Score: 43249%
Critics Consensus: Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales proves that neither a change in directors nor an undead Javier Bardem is enough to drain this sinking franchise's murky bilge.
Synopsis: The evil Capt. Salazar and his deadly ghost sailors pursue Jack Sparrow as he searches for the legendary Trident of... [More]


Snatched (2017)

Adjusted Score: 45252%
Critics Consensus: Snatched has a pair of terrifically talented stars, but their presence isn't enough to compensate for this rote comedy's threadbare plot and scattershot laughs.
Synopsis: Dumped by her boyfriend, Emily persuades her mother, Linda, to accompany her on an exotic getaway to South America. The... [More]
Directed By: Jonathan Levine


Kidnap (2017)

Adjusted Score: 38942%
Critics Consensus: Kidnap strays into poorly scripted exploitation too often to take advantage of its pulpy premise -- or the still-impressive talents of its committed star.
Synopsis: A typical afternoon in the park turns into a nightmare for single mother Karla Dyson when kidnappers snatch her young... [More]
Directed By: Luis Prieto
