    ★★

    CAPSULE REVIEW: I was interested in seeing "Molly" after modestly enjoying the solid c-movie "Kill Mode" by Thijs Meuwese, a relatively young Dutch unknown that has an uncanny ability to mimic genre cinema. This one looks and smells a lot like "Turbo Kid", an often-declared cult movie that precedes "Molly" by two years.

    TOUGH GUYZ 2: STOP OR MY GRANDPA' WILL SHOOT: I laughed my head off watching this ridiculous movie. But I wasn't particularly amused. It was the type of laughter that villains in bad movies are prone to engage in, dry and sarcastic. Anyway. Every single actor, including the lovely and apparently slumming Amy Ryan seems to be suffering from tetanus. Fiddy Cents seems even more wussier than he uses to, Stallone speaks in somber, three-word sentences that sound like profound…
