‘Seberg’ review: Kristen Stewart can’t save superficial biopic of New Wave icon

If “Breathless” star Jean Seberg hadn’t existed, a hard-boiled novelist would have had to invent her – a glittering Hollywood/New Wave icon of modern style and civil rights outspokenness who survived a gantlet of male impresarios only to be laid low by FBI smear tactics harsher than any showbiz gossip monger’s.

Review: ‘Bad Boys for Life’ refreshing tribute to ’90s action cinema

Martin Lawrence walks away with “Bad Boys for Life,” reminding audiences what a crucial element he is to the unique mix of action and comedy that makes the “Bad Boys” work. The yin and yang, push and pull of the soft goofball Marcus (Lawrence) and his partner, the hardened Mike (Will Smith), is thrown into even starker relief when Marcus becomes a grandfather. His desire to retire clashes with Mike’s quest for vengeance after being shot by a mysterious motorcyclist, testing the whole “for life” part of the pals’ mantra. Forget boyhood; Marcus just wants to see them become a few “good men.”
