Well-acted and paced, while displaying the beauty of the Scottish countryside, Sacrifice is a solid, albeit not entirely original, thriller that harkens upon many tropes familiar to the genre.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is yet another monumental missed opportunity for a studio that badly needed a sure thing, though WB/DC should be happy to settle for its presumed financial success given the film’s immense shortcomings. Comic books movies are all the rage, and for a nerd like
