Admit One 4/27

Safe

Starring: Jason Statham, Catherine Chan, Robert John Burke, James Hong, Anson Mount

Directed by: Boaz Yakin

Plot: A former cop, Luke Wright, become the guardian of a 12 year old girl who has memorized a sequence of numbers that every major crime organization in New York City is willing to kill for.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 55%

Critic Consensus: “While hard-hitting and violently inventive, Safe ultimately proves too formulaic to set itself apart from the action thriller pack — including some of its star’s better films”

The Raven

Starring: John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans, Brendan Gleeson, Oliver Jackson-Cohen

Directed by: James McTiegue

Plot: Edgar Allen Poe is recruited by the Boston police to help them catch a serial killer who is using Poe’s stories as inspiration for horrible murders.

RT Freshness: 21%

Critic Consensus: “Thinly scripted, unevenly acted, and overall preposterous, The Raven disgraces the legacy of Edgar Allen Poe with a rote murder mystery that’s more silly than scary”

The Five Year Engagement

Starring: Jason Segel, Emily Blunt, Chris Pratt, Alison Brie, Lauren Weedman, Mimi Kennedy

Directed by: Nicholas Stoller

Plot: After Tom proposes to Violet, the couple doesn’t come close to actually getting married for another five years.

RT Freshness: 62%

Critic Consensus: “While certainly overlong, The Five-Year Engagement benefits from the easy chemistry of its leads and a funny, romantic script with surprising depth and intelligence”

The Pirates: Band of Misfits

Starring: Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Martin Freeman, David Tennant, Imelda Staunton, Brian Blessed

Directed by: Peter Lord

Plot: A misfit Pirate Captain and his crew set out to win the Pirate of the Year award against stiff competition and the furious Queen Victoria’s hatred of pirates.

RT Freshness: 88%

Critic Consensus: “It may not quite scale Aardman’s customary delirious heights, but The Pirates! still represents some of the smartest, most skillfully animated fare that modern cinema has to offer”
