Admit One 3/19

By Zach

Not a particularly exciting week for new movies but there are three new ones to choose from, let’s find out what the critics think.

Repo Men

Starring: Jude Law, Forest Whitaker, Alice Braga, Liev Schreiber

Directed by: Miguel Sapochnik

Plot: In the future, a company called The Union has made medical breakthroughs that allow them to replace any organ with a mechanical replacement.  However, if you can’t make your payments it gets repossessed.

Rotten Tomatoes Freshness: 19%

Critic Consensus: “Repo Men has an intriguing premise, as well as a likable pair of leads, but they’re wasted on a rote screenplay, indifferent direction, and mind-numbing gore.”

The Bounty Hunter

Starring: Gerard Butler, Jennifer Aniston, Christine Baranski, Jason Sudeikis

Directed by: Andy Tennant

Plot: Bounty hunter Milo thinks he has landed the perfect gig when he he’s asked to track down his ex wife Nicole and bring her to jail.

RT Freshness: 10%

Critic Consensus: “Gerard Butler and Jennifer Aniston remain as attractive as ever, but The Bounty Hunter‘s formula script doesn’t know what to do with them — or the audience’s attention.”

Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Starring: Zachary Gordon, Steve Zahn, Devon Bostwick, Chloe Moretz

Directed by: Thor Freudenthal

Plot: Greg Heffley must brave the terrifying world that is middle school.

RT Freshness: 51%

Critic Consensus: “Unlike its bestselling source material, Diary of a Wimpy Kid fails to place a likable protagonist at the center of its middle-school humor — and its underlying message is drowned out as a result.”
