Summer Movie Scorecard 2017


Leap! (2017)

Adjusted Score: 40.71%
Critics Consensus: From its bland story to its unremarkable animation, Leap! does little to distinguish itself from a long list of like-minded -- and superior -- family-friendly alternatives.
Synopsis: 11-year-old orphan, Félicie (Elle Fanning) has one dream - to go to Paris and become a dancer. Her best friend... [More]
Directed By: Eric Summer, Éric Warin

Adjusted Score: 50.553%
Critics Consensus: The Hitman's Bodyguard coasts on Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds' banter -- but doesn't get enough mileage to power past an overabundance of action-comedy clichés.
Synopsis: The world's top protection agent (Ryan Reynolds) is called upon to guard the life of his mortal enemy, one of... [More]
Directed By: Patrick Hughes

Adjusted Score: 49.19%
Critics Consensus: Everything, Everything should tug young adult heartstrings fairly effectively, but may not be quite engrossing enough to woo less melodramatically inclined viewers.
Synopsis: A teenage girl (Amandla Stenberg) is unable to leave her home because she has an immunodeficiency that makes her allergic... [More]
Directed By: Stella Meghie

Adjusted Score: 48.96%
Critics Consensus: Paris Can Wait's likable stars are ill-served by a film that lacks interesting ideas or characters and has little to offer beyond striking travelogue visuals.

Directed By: Eleanor Coppola


Rough Night (2017)

Adjusted Score: 50.302%
Critics Consensus: Rough Night's gifted stars are certainly good for some laughs, but their talents aren't properly utilized in a scattered comedy that suffers from too many missed opportunities.

Directed By: Lucia Aniello


Churchill (2017)

Adjusted Score: 54.098%
Critics Consensus: Churchill gets sterling work out of Brian Cox in the leading role, but it isn't enough to overcome a muddled and ultimately unsuccessful approach to an incredible real-life story.

Directed By: Jonathan Teplitzky


The Glass Castle (2017)

Adjusted Score: 57.256%
Critics Consensus: The Glass Castle has an affecting real-life story and a hard-working cast in its corner, but they aren't enough to outweigh a fundamentally misguided approach to the material.
Synopsis: Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric, resilient and tight-knit family, THE GLASS CASTLE is a remarkable story of unconditional love.... [More]
Directed By: Destin Daniel Cretton


The Dinner (2017)

Adjusted Score: 50.2%
Critics Consensus: The Dinner's strong ensemble isn't enough to overcome a screenplay that merely skims the surface of its source material's wit and insight.
Synopsis: When Stan Lohman (Richard Gere), a popular congressman running for governor, invites his troubled younger brother Paul (Steve Coogan) and... [More]
Directed By: Oren Moverman

Adjusted Score: 59.538%
Critics Consensus: Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets uses sheer kinetic energy and visual thrills to overcome narrative obstacles and offer a viewing experience whose surreal pleasures often outweigh its flaws.

Directed By: Luc Besson


47 Meters Down (2017)

Adjusted Score: 59.843%
Critics Consensus: 47 Meters Down doesn't take its terrifying premise quite as far as it should, but its toothy antagonists still offer a few thrills for less demanding genre enthusiasts.
Synopsis: Two sisters vacationing in Mexico become trapped in a shark cage on the ocean floor. As their oxygen starts to... [More]
Directed By: Johannes Roberts


Despicable Me 3 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 66.542%
Critics Consensus: Despicable Me 3 should keep fans of the franchise consistently entertained with another round of colorful animation and zany -- albeit somewhat scattershot -- humor.
Synopsis: Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions,... [More]

Adjusted Score: 77.083%

Directed By: David F. Sandberg


Cars 3 (2017)

Adjusted Score: 78.966%
Critics Consensus: Cars 3 has an unexpectedly poignant story to go with its dazzling animation, suggesting Pixar's most middle-of-the-road franchise may have a surprising amount of tread left.
Synopsis: Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers, the legendary Lightning McQueen (voice of Owen Wilson) is suddenly pushed out... [More]
Directed By: Brian Fee


Alien: Covenant (2017)

Adjusted Score: 80.993%
Critics Consensus: Alien: Covenant delivers another satisfying round of close-quarters deep-space terror, even if it doesn't take the saga in any new directions.

Directed By: Ridley Scott


Landline (2017)

Adjusted Score: 78.603%
Critics Consensus: Landline's talented cast -- and a fast-paced approach from director/co-writer Gillian Robespierre -- help this charming multi-generational dramedy overcome a familiar storyline.
Synopsis: When two sisters suspect their father (John Turturro) may be having an affair, it sends them into a tailspin that... [More]
Directed By: Gillian Robespierre
