The Guarantee

A missed opportunity, a poor and underwhelming depiction that lacks a real punch.

Nightcrawler

With an on-form Gyllenhaal and a distinct look, Nightcrawler plumbs the atmospheric depths of Los Angeles nightlife for satire, but comes up with only broad media sideswipes.

Life After Beth

Not as original as it thinks nor as funny as it needs to be, the decidedly mediocre Life After Beth coasts by on Aubrey Plaza's charm.

An intriguing setup and a solid lead in Denzel Washington can't quite help The Equalizer overcome its more generic action leanings.
