actor: Daniel Craig

The Golden Compass

Dove recently viewed "The Golden Compass", which incorporates some nice cinematography including scenes of snow-capped mountains. The child actors are also quite adept in their various roles in the picture. The movie itself, however, tends to be slow moving and lackluster when it does not center on [...]

The Invasion

This movie jumps into the plot very quickly. Maybe too quickly. There is not much foundation laid and suddenly the aliens are possessing everyone's bodies with a flu-like virus which takes effect when they fall asleep. The film does appropriately escalate as it nears the climax and there is a great [...]

Casino Royale

"Casino Royal" takes us back to see how Bond became Bond. I must say that I was pleasantly surprised that there was little actual blood but then most of the older 007 movies were fairly tame in this sense. The action was ever lasting accept for a longer than needed poker game and the language is [...]

Munich – Filtered

May 9, 2006
Although this was a great movie and very informational about the aftermath of the Munich hostage event, it was full of adult themes that would not be good for little eyes. We cannot approve it as a family friend as the violence and drug content is very [...]

Munich

May 9, 2006
"Munich" is a very well done film that shows the talent and genius of Steven Spielberg. Like in "Schindler's List", Spielberg chooses to graphically show all the violence, sex and nudity that he envisions happening as the Israeli assassins go about their mission to eliminate those responsible for [...]

Enduring Love – Filtered

May 3, 2005
Daniel Craig stars as Joe Rose in this chilling and intense psychological thriller. Joe has planned an intimate picnic in the England countryside with his girlfriend Clair (Samantha Morton), when a hot air balloon plunges down upon them from the sky with a young boy trapped in the basket. Joe and [...]

Enduring Love

Enduring Love shows how strongly a traumatic experience can affect someone’s life. After witnessing the death of the man, everything in Joe’s (Daniel Craig) life constantly reminds him of that incident. The movie does a great job showing the torment Joe puts himself through, blaming himself [...]

Sylvia

February 10, 2004
Sylvia is an art film that will likely appeal to a narrow audience. There is intense beauty in the scenery and videography throughout the film, especially the ocean scenes of Cape Cod. Dove cannot award The Dove Seal to Sylvia because of profanity and nudity, although both elements are tastefully [...]

Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

November 13, 2001

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Unlike the video game, there are deadly moments where the pacing lags and the story becomes convoluted, but then the action kicks in. Adults who enjoyed the "Indiana Jones" films and the first two "Batman" installments may find the MTV-styled production values, with its quick and constant editing [...]

I Dreamed of Africa

August 29, 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Wanting something affirmative to say about this content-friendly film, I keep coming back to the title. It’s a good title. Unfortunately, “I Dreamed of Africa” is a watered down, uninspiring rip-off of “Out of Africa.” Ms. Basinger is the main letdown. Although she is uninhibited about [...]
