Gemini Man

Henry Brogan's international hitman days have taken their toll, leaving him feeling soulless and alone. But one day into retirement, Henry (Will Smith) discovers that the federal government has used his last kill to conceal Gemini—a secret soldier-cloning project founded by Clay Verris (Clive [...]

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

"Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets" plays less like candy-colored swashbuckler like, say, James Cameron's "Avatar" or James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" and more like a science fiction rendering of Tom Sawyer. The plot has one common thread involving an alien race facing annihilation, [...]

Killer Elite

Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R-rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative values. As such, we feel that we [...]

Duplicity

March 20, 2009
One of the few things this film has going it for it is the chemistry between Julia Roberts as Claire Stenwick and Clive Owen as Ray Koval. They are witty and clever with each other and although it is not clear whether each is trying to nail the other one in intelligence matters or not, things [...]

The International

The plot of this film is interesting but it's the kind of film in which a trip to the restroom would certainly put a person behind, and possibly regarding key moments. The theme of putting an end to the terrorists behind a corrupt bank is certainly a theme which many people can relate to in [...]

Shoot ‘Em Up

“Shoot ‘Em Up” is a film that delivers exactly what the title promises. The film exhibits lots of guns, lots of blood, lots of language, and some sex. Clive Owen strikes a great balance as the good guy dealing with a bad past and Paul Giamatti is delicious as the villain. When a newborn’s [...]

Children of Men

At first I thought this might be a "Logan's Run" for the new century but I was quickly aware that this would not be the case. In this depressing futuristic world, Woman can no longer get pregnant and the world has completely gone to civil wars. This film suffers for many reasons as it never [...]

Inside Man – Filtered

August 8, 2006

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Denzel, Denzel, Denzel! "Inside Man" was a great movie, especially if you enjoy watching Denzel Washington. It was captivating, interesting and it kept moving. The only violence was some shooting between the SWAT Team and the bank robbers, a couple of punches and some rough handling of some of the [...]

Inside Man

"Inside Man" has a very interesting premise and catches your attention right from the beginning. While being well written, I found that Russell Gewirtz really likes the f-word and other obscene language that easily could have been left out of the story. Denzel puts in a good performance as the [...]

Derailed – Filtered

March 21, 2006
"Derailed" was an entertaining and well-made film. It was captivating and very interesting. However, it did contain material that restricts it from being approved by Dove. For example, the two main characters were having an affair throughout the film and many fights resulted in death or bloody body [...]
