Transformers: The Last Knight

June 21, 2017
"Transformers: The Last Knight" is the fifth installment of this franchise and features a few good thoughts such as a character's statement that "without personal sacrifice, there can be no victory" and that anyone stepping forward can wind up being a hero. However, other than this, there are a lot [...]

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot

March 4, 2016
Effective January 1st, 2009, The Dove Foundation Review Team has ceased reviewing all NC-17 rated movies and certain extraordinarily explicit R, PG-13 and PG-13 Horror rated films. This decision was reached due to the fact that Dove reviewers are parents or grandparents with conservative [...]

Transformers: Age of Extinction

June 27, 2014
When Cade Yeager finds a old dilapidated trunk, he brings it home to try and fix it or part it out. Little does he know the change and danger this truck will bring in his life. It is no ordinary truck, it is the body of the Auto-bot Transformer, Optimus Prime. Cade discovers the truth, along with [...]

World War Z

June 21, 2013
This film is surely better than many zombie movies in that it deals with an entire world pulling together to halt the zombies from spreading their rabies and infecting the mass population. It features suspense and fine actors, particularly Brad Pitt as Gerry Lane, who has to leave his family to [...]

Pain and Gain

April 26, 2013
I have rarely been as offended by the content of a film as I was with this one. The title should be "All Pain and No Gain" because that's what I felt 15 minutes into the film when I walked out of the theater. The beginning of this movie contained more sex, language and drug use than most of the [...]

Transformers: Dark of the Moon

June 30, 2011
I was pleased to see that "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" has more story this time around than its predecessor, the last installment which was part two in the series. It still is a "busy" film. At times so much is happening on the screen with fights and battles and storyline and character nuances [...]

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

June 24, 2009
This film makes the mistake of overkill. It lasts two and a half hours and could and should be trimmed down to ninety minutes. There are way too many fights and battles as well. I know a lot of young people and "Transformers" fans enjoy the battles, and the special effects in this film are amazing, [...]

Transformers (2007)

July 3, 2007
This movie joins the rank of films which barely miss out on being approved by Dove. It is rated a three in the language category of our content scale, and a three means it can't be approved. It would have been had it been a two rating but, unfortunately, it wasn't. There is simply a lot of language [...]

Tears Of The Sun

March 7, 2003
This picture, while not based on actual events, provides insight into the horrors of ethnic cleansing and religious persecution throughout many parts of the world. It contains graphic brutality. The American soldiers show compassion as they encounter gross injustices, risking their lives to save [...]

Spider-Man

May 3, 2002
Although the scene is often filled with fighting, most of the violence is neither graphic nor gory. However, a few moments in the climatic battle may be more graphic than necessary as Spiderman takes a brutal beating. There are two uses of "Jesus" as an exclamation, and several mild obscenities and [...]
