Valentines Day

This romantic comedy is on the light side, with nothing very serious or earth-changing happening. It is basically about some hook-ups and break-ups as it shares several vignettes. No one story or couple is focused on for long and the movie moves on to another couple. It is a fast paced movie for [...]

Law Abiding Citizen

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 [...]

The Soloist

It's intriguing that this film is based on a true story. Nathaniel Ayers (Jamie Foxx) is a homeless man but different than most. He is a musical prodigy who attended Julliard and who has a mental illness. When L.A. Times news reporter Steve Lopez (Robert Downey Jr.) comes across him on the street [...]

The Kingdom

“The Kingdom,” is a powerfully moving story dealing with the United States presence in the kingdom of Saudi Arabia. When a coordinated attack leaves over two hundred US citizens dead in Saudi Arabia, a FBI strike team is able to get permission through back channels to investigate the incident. [...]

Dreamgirls

“Dreamgirls" takes the audience into a facsimile of the world of Motown in the 60's. It reveals the underbelly of the recording business including payola schemes and the struggle black entertainers had to endure in the white-dominated pop music world. Like the Broadway musical from which its [...]

Miami Vice

Michael Mann tries to take us back to a couple of characters many watched in the 80's. Unfortunately, he is a better TV director than a movie director and it shows. Grainy film footage stitched in with many scenes shot with hand held cameras make for a jittery ride. The film is long with little [...]

Jarhead

Jarhead is the furthest thing away from a family film that I have seen in a long, long time. It contains at least 2 f-words per minute in the dialog, not to mention all the other graphically obscene language. There are several sex scenes and negative dialog about women, girlfriends and wives [...]

Stealth

This film is only two hours long, but it felt as though it dragged on for much longer. It is full of spectacular special effects, with more explosions than a Fourth of July celebration, but the story never seems to climax. I sat in the theatre, patiently waiting for the movie to grab my full [...]

Ray

Jamie Foxx does an amazing job playing Ray Charles Robinson in this movie about one of the most beloved entertainers in American history. He has captured the essence of Charles in this dramatic and emotional portrayal. This biography takes place in the early part of Ray's life when he began his [...]

Collateral

In Collateral, Max is basically a good, hardworking man. He is mentally manipulated and physically forced into a hostile partnership with Vincent. Vincent’s moral code somehow permits him to use people if he pays them and then to take the lives of others if he is being paid for it. He shows no [...]
