One Sentence Movie Reviews: "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," "Apocalypto," "The Most Dangerous Game"
The Most Dangerous Game (1932, NR)
It definitely has its suspenseful moments, but on the whole the film is melodramatic, over-acted, and severely dated.
Apocalypto (2006, R)
A typical Mel Gibson film: visually compelling scenes, a strong narrative, and a twisted fascination with gore combine to create a movie that is entertaining enough but somehow seems less deep than it should have been.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006, PG-13)
Although 24-year-old Lucas Black looks ridiculously old to be a high school student and the rest of the acting is pretty poor as well, the cars are cool and the rudimentary plot managed to hold my attention most of the time.
