Fist Fight
NEW YORK (CNS) — We have to inquire: What kinds of audience laughter are the makers of the misbegotten "Fist Fight" (Warner Bros.) going for? Broad guffaws at human frailties? Nope, none of that. Expansive hoots at outrageous physical comedy? Again, not here. That leaves bitter, humorless sneering at various forms of human degradation. If there's a sweet spot for that, this film has found it.

The Great Wall

NEW YORK (CNS) — Those seeking nothing more from a movie than sheer spectacle may be satisfied with director Zhang Yimou's visually interesting but thoroughly implausible action adventure "The Great Wall" (Universal).

Epic in scale, the film is shallow in emotion and characterization. On the upside though, its central romance is completely chaste and its dialogue mostly free of cursing.

Lion

NEW YORK (CNS) — The incredible true story of one orphan's 20-year odyssey to find his way back home roars to cinematic life in "Lion" (Weinstein). Taken from his native India as a boy, Saroo Brierley (Dev Patel) grew to manhood in a loving adoptive family in Australia. But he was haunted by his lost childhood and the beloved mother (Priyanka Bose) he left behind. His 2013 memoir (written with Larry Buttrose), "A Long Way Home," inspired this poignant and uplifting film, directed by Garth Davis.
