The Foreigner

The Foreigner is a gritty and realistic tale of power and corruption with Jackie Chan in a dramatic role unlike any we've seen from him before. Behind his fast-as-lightning martial arts, though, is a grim and empty man with tears rolling down his cheeks. These tears poignantly show us the inner [...]

Green Lantern

The special effects abound in this comic book extravaganza. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds) is the first human ever chosen to be part of the intergalactic order of the Green Lantern Corps. He is chosen to defeat Parallax, a fierce beast-like villain who threatens the very universe itself. Hal cannot see [...]

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

Beyond Borders

If you’re looking for a feel-good movie, this isn’t it. This one is filled with disturbing scenes not meant for the squeamish. Children suffer with malnutrition as buzzards wait nearby for death to arrive. Surgery is performed without anesthesia. The film does however have some merit and may [...]

Vertical Limit

Like “Twister,” the action/disaster film of a couple years ago, “Vertical Limit” gives the viewer one exciting special effect or death-defying stunt after another. It makes “Raiders of the Lost Ark” look like a subliminal relaxation video. Unfortunately, like with “Twister,” these [...]
