Holliday Grainger plays Bernie’s newly minted fiancée, worriedly waiting out the storm.

Rest assured, there are car chases and shoot-outs at regular intervals, but only one chase – which Ben visualizes as a video game – has much novelty. You’ve seen one car crash, you’ve seen them all.

With Christmas releases and Oscar contenders still filling the multiplexes as a calendar year ends, January has long been traditionally considered the dumping ground for new releases, comprised mostly of last year’s leftovers or genre schlock designed for fast pay-off – and frequently dire....

Newcomers Elias and Lukas Schwarz play twin brothers, named Elias and Lukas. Their mother (Susanne Wuest) has returned from the hospital after facial reconstruction, her bandaged face suggesting no less than Franju’s 1960 classic Eyes Without a Face (Les yeux sans visage)....
