5 films to avoid in movie theaters this week
Go out to dinner instead.
Not all the newest movies can be blockbusters. (Though there are some!) Here are this week's worst movies:
Bullet To The Head: Choppy and bordering on incoherent, Bullet to the Head is Sylvester Stallone’s answer to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s The Last Stand, an action exercise in “Here’s how we used to do it.”
Movie 43: This collection of gross and raunchy film shorts has big stars but few actual laughs.
Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters: Hansel and Gretel grow up with a grudge in this R-rated horror action comedy fairy tale that’s weakened by the dialogue and story line.
Broken City: Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe battle for the moral low ground in this double-crossing, gritty city drama.
Gangster Squad: This weightless splatter of bloodshed focuses on the LA police department’s hunt for notorious gangster Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn).
