This is one of those movies where any attempt at describing it will spoil it. It's magical and slow and sad. However, ultimately it makes no sense whatsoever.
A government assassin learns he has been cloned by a rogue lab bent on raising an army of perfect soldiers.
A fair movie. It brings nothing new or interesting, and has generally uninspired writing and action. Thinking back on it, it does seem derivative of so many other movies.
A boy is abused, gets hit on the head, is institutionalized and has a daydream.
Raises the bar for acting with this character. A good movie, but definitely not traditional. Riveting without a particularly obvious thread. It could have been a whole lot better, but it would have needed to delve into the true and far darker roots of the main character; his mother, and you can't do that because she's a woman.
After watching this movie I just realized I didn't see the earlier one. Whoops.
A military man of small renown and great skill is swept up into a conflict that engulfs his nation in war, driving a wedge between himself, his people and his love.
A movie the likes of which I've never seen and doubt I ever will again.
- aka Potop (.pol)
- This is the second of the three book series colloquially called "The Trilogy".
- Personally I was thinking of The Princess Bride - (1987 movie).
A police officer almost dies in the course of duty, but is converted into a cyborg.
When it came out I was given the impression that it would be bad, especially compared to the original, but it was fair. Not good, but fair.
A remake of RoboCop - (1987 movie)
A Templar turning monk is swept back into his craft.
A great and gritty movie.
A street urchin is adopted into royalty to become an unusual prince in the unusual circumstances of his day;
A bubblegum movie. Pretty and decently-engaging.
Properly titled Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
A city sculpted by technology has a poverty-stricken underbelly and grand political schemes.

Some sort of school for not-superheroes is heroic, but one of them becomes less heroic, requiring HERoism.
aka X-Men: Dark Phoenix
An elite enemy group infiltrates the presidency of the United States, and initiates a plan to force the world into disarmament and submission.
A standard American action movie™ of no note.
- Properly titled G.I. Joe: Retaliation
