Longtime local film critic Hap Erstein gives us his take on the latest films.
A movie about a terrorist plot on the White House, an animated film starring the voice of Nicolas Cage and what appears to be a very suspenseful picture that you probably never heard of. All of these and more are at theaters and Hap Erstein with PalmBeachArtsPaper.com gives us his reviews.
"Olympus Has Fallen" - The White House, code-named "Olympus", is under attack by terrorists. Gerard Butler is a disgraced Secret Service agent who has to break in and rescue the President, played by Aaron Eckhart. Morgan Freeman also stars in this film.
"The Croods" - Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds lead a star-studded cast of voice actors in an animated feature about a family of cave people facing extinction if they don't try new things. It's also out in 3D.
"Admission" - Tina Fey and Paul Rudd star in a romantic comedy directed by the guy who brought us "About a Boy", which starred Hugh Grant.
"Stoker" - A young lady's father dies in a car crash and her uncle comes to stay with her and her emotionally unstable mother, played by Nicole Kidman. The daughter never knew Uncle Charlie. It's billed as a horror, suspense, thriller.
