Taken 3

"Taken 3" features an action-packed plot line and, considering this is the third film in the series, a pretty interesting story and mystery to solve. Liam Neeson has seemingly lost nothing in his physical arsenal as he elbows bad guys, punches them, races after them in his car, etc. The story [...]

There Be Dragons

Dove Approved for 18+

This story of different choices and their consequences is based on true events. The title, "There Be Dragons", has a double meaning. It was used by the mapmakers of old to designate uncharted waters that may have unknown dangers or "dragons". The term is also used by the filmmaker as a metaphor [...]

Dark Water

Dahlia Williams suffers from migraine headaches throughout the film and boy did I have a big headache myself when I left this sad excuse for a film. As with many suspense films and horror films, much of the storyline is far fetched. Dahlia and her daughter Ceci move into this apartment building [...]

As Tom remembers parts of his affair with Claire, flashbacks include a scene of graphic sex and nudity. Along with a few British 'bloodies', the dialogue includes several strong obscenities and a number of crude words. In keeping with the time period, several characters frequently smoke and a [...]

Arabian Nights

July 18, 2000

Dove Approved for Ages 12+

Filmed in Turkey, “Arabian Nights” is a wonderful story, with exotic locations and impressive production values. Some parents may be leery of a film featuring magic and an evil-looking genie, but these are well-constructed parables, each containing a moral. The good vs. evil yarns contain [...]

Mission Impossible 2

May 24, 2000
Aided by James Bond-styled action and stunts, beautiful locations, and a breathtaking leading lady, this is an exciting adventure. It is a typical action-packed summer movie where the good guys best the villains. Surprisingly lacking in objectionable material, however, we could not quite approve [...]
