Now playing: 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty"

...there's some criticism of corporate greed, but it's not the focus. It's not the take home. Also noteworthy is Sean Penn in a fairly small, but very nice role as O'Connell, the elusive photographer. "Walter Mitty" isn't a "perfect...

Department of Corrections launches major recruitment camapaign between your nose and chin,'' Lloyd tells trainees. Inmates are less likely to comply with officers who put on a Sean Penn tough guy act than with someone who talks to them like a person, he said. The recruitment blitz is the first since Spring...
'Drive' takes a dark, grim turn

...Killers" or anything, but was actually more reminiscent of a lesser known Oliver Stone film called "U-Turn," with Sean Penn. If you haven't seen the film, I'd recommend it with reservations. The acting and writing is all good, but the...

...this film. After all, they did re-edit the film themselves after Kramer turned in his final cut. But so did Ford and Sean Penn, who eventually had himself cut out of the picture entirely because he disagreed with one subplot. In the end, however...

Protagonist makes 'Wild' hard to like

...fate is pretty well documented. It also goes to the heart of my criticism, both of him and of the film. Directed by Sean Penn, "Into the Wild" is a beautiful-looking film. It is very well acted, and aside from a few trippy, seventies-style...
The good, the bad and the ugly of 2007

...beautifully made, but just missed the mark in terms of storytelling, which was notable considering the people involved. Sean Penn's gorgeously shot journey film, "Into the Wild," works on almost every level except in tone where we are asked to...
'Darkness' goes over the edge

...fully made its way into Gibson's acting. I kept thinking of other movies I'd seen about vengeance-mad fathers; Sean Penn in "Mystic River" or Kevin Bacon in "Death Sentence," a movie that's not great but 10 times as emotionally affecting...
Dark, disturbing and worth viewing

...first, the Clint Eastwood helmed "Mystic River," was nominated for just about every award in the book, and brought Sean Penn and Tim Robbins acting Oscars. "Gone Baby Gone" was Ben Affleck's directorial debut, and was a near perfect film...
The Cold Light of Day

Opens Friday, Apr 6, 2012 Synopsis: The naked body of a murdered little girl is found in a forest surrounding a small Eastern European town. It's the third case in a row, and local police detective Victor Marek (Richard E. Grant) is on the killer's trail, but his superior, Novak (James Laurenson), needs to solve the crime quickly in order to boost his political career. So he arrests some suspicious hippie who later hangs himself in a prison cell. Though Marek is ordered to close the case, he continues to work on it on his own. He rents an old gas station and a house in the area where the murders took place. Working from a drawing done by one of the murdered girls he tries to find the clues for the identity of the killer. Marek becomes so obsessed with his quest that when he meets Milena (Lynsey Baxter), a single young woman with a little daughter (Perdita Weeks), he does not hesitate to use the child as the bait for the criminal. Though the film plot bears a strong resemblance to Sean Penn's movie The Pledge, it is actually a remake of the 1958 German film It Happened in Broad Daylight, scripted by Swiss writer Friedrich D├╝rrenmatt, who later reworked his original screenplay into the novel The Pledge. ~ Yuri German, Rovi Cast: Richard E.
