    Yes, there are numerous iconic scenes throughout, and some wonderful set pieces and action sequences certainly get our attention from time to time. But it is far too tedious to hold our interest for its entire two hour plus runtime. Shyamalan has shown time and time again that he is a much better filmmaker when forced to work with a shorter leash.

    ★★★

    The Upside is an odd-couple buddy story ultimately about bridging our divisions and understanding the impact people can have on each others’ lives.

    The themes explored in The Upside are certainly nothing new, and neither is Burger’s film particularly stylish, uniquely structured, or earth-shattering in its singularity. Yet for a remake of a French film that has been run through the Hollywood filmmaking machine that we all know has a unique ability to really screw things up, this one certainly could have been much, much worse.

    ★★★★★

    It's long but I was glued to the screen for the entire 154 minutes. Extremely brutal, heartbreakingly beautiful, and one of DiCaprio's best to date. Well deserving of its hard R rating as it's more graphic than any horror movie you'll ever see.

    ★★★

    Big, dumb, and stupid but a pure blast from beginning to end! We so dont deserve Jason Statham. It’s not Jaws, but it IS “The Meg!”
