The Four

For martial-arts action, it mostly adds up.


Action

Rod Lott
One easy way to review The Four would be to call it a kung-fu X-Men. Hell, director Gordon Chan (The King of Fighters) already has a pair of sequels planned. The big difference, of course, is that this Chinese/Hong Kong film is a period piece set nearly a thousand years ago. Therefore, it’s not interested in adamantium blades, but counterfeit coins.

Oblivion

Cruise into a dystopian future.


Sci-Fi

Rod Lott
Oblivion marks the second Tom Cruise vehicle in a row — Jack Reacher being the first — to underperform at the box office and underwhelm critics, yet turns out to be not bad. Not bad at all! (Scientology backlash? Signs point to “yes.”)
