Movie Review: Water for Elephants

imageAlthough pretty as a postcard, Water for Elephants (C-) is as formulaic as a tale can be that blends animal cruelty and forbidden love. At pachydrm pace, this three-ring melodrama fails to ring true. Robert Pattinson has acting skills on par with Luke Perry. Witherspoon and Waltz dial it in as the other stock characters in the most mediocre show on earth.

I've reviewed films for more than 20 years. Current movie reviews of new theatrical releases and direct-to-video or streaming films are added weekly to the Silver Screen Capture movie news site. Many capsule critiques originally appeared in expanded form in my syndicated Lights Camera Reaction column.
