Perseus braves the treacherous underworld to rescue his father, Zeus, captured by his son, Ares, and brother Hades who unleash the ancient Titans upon the world.
Silly fantasy action film with a drifting plot; the effects and creatures, however, will entertain an adolescent audience.
Maltin**: "Ho-hum, grim-faced action film relies heavily on CGI effects but isn't supported by a decent script, so it's hrad to get involved. The result: a lot of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
The lives of two Danish families cross each other, and an extraordinary but risky friendship comes into bud.
Stirring and intense study of pacifism amidst an otherwise relentlessly violent world.
Maltin***1/2: "...a story both gripping and harrowlingly believable, an exploration of violence that simmers just below the surface of polite society."

After saving the life of one of the civilians inside, a firefighter finds himself trapped in a burning warehouse with a broken leg and looks back upon his life.
Above-average drama intended to celebrate the heroics of firefighters, sympathetic but quite sentimental.
Maltin***: "Warm depiction of firemen's lives as brothers in an extended family. Full of white-knuckle sequences depicting daring (but realistic) rescue operations, which cumulatively pay tribute to some of the bravest men on earth. Solid, old-fashioned storytelling."
