Mr. Moviefone reviews '30 Minutes or Less,' 'Final Destination 5,' 'Glee: The 3D Concert Movie,' 'The Help'
This week at the movies, you can "gleek" out, death has your number, and Jesse Eisenberg is a walking time bomb in "30 Minutes or Less."
Eisenberg plays a slacker pizza delivery guy who gets kidnapped by a couple of other slackers and is forced to rob a bank. He has nine hours to do the job or the kidnappers set off explosives strapped to his chest. Also starring are Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride.
The Reel Deal: It ain't art, and it looks like it was made for $20, but these guys are funny and at least the movie knows when to get in, deliver a few laughs and get out. I'm in.
No one can cheat death in "Final Destination 5."
If you've seen one through four, then you know the storyline. A group of people escape a disaster that was supposed to kill them. So death starts picking them off one by one in some of the most bizarre ways possible.
The Reel Deal: They said the last "Final Destination" was the final "Final Destination," but if you keep buying tickets to crappy movies, even death can't make 'em stop. I'm out.
It's a hit musical TV series, and now it's a full-length movie. It's "Glee: The 3D Concert Movie."
Join the stars of "Glee" as they hit the road for a live concert. The film features the music and moves fans have come to love, plus backstage and fan interviews.
The Reel Deal: With more singing, dancing and gleeness than most can stand, the "Glee" concert movie is pretty much for gleeks only, but you're gonna gleek out! For you, I'm in.
And a bestselling novel about breaking down racial barriers makes it to the big screen in "The Help."
Emma Stone plays a young writer who secretly enlists the help of a group of housekeepers to write a book about what life is really like in 1960s Jackson, Miss. Their stories force the people around them to take a good, hard look at the changing times.
The Reel Deal: With a stunning cast, a perfect sense of time and wonderfully drawn characters, "The Help" is a real grownup movie that you do not want to miss. I'm in.
