Heading to the theater this weekend? Get caught up with what the critics have to say about this week's new releases.
The Last Exorcism
MRQE Metric: 64
As EW's review says, "Any movie with the word exorcism in the title is inviting you to compare it to a movie that a great many people consider the scariest horror film ever made." And, that's exactly what The Last Exorcism is up against. The film tells the story of a priest who documents his final exorcism, while exposing corruption within his ministry. Being presented as "lost footage," the film hopes to find the same chills that movies like The Blair Witch Project achieved with great success.

Ocean's Eleven, but critics warn the flick might be too stylized for its own good.

Mesrine: Killer Instinct
MRQE Metric: 75
Jacques Mesrine. Killer Instinct, based on Mesrine's autobiography, documents the rise of the notorious gangster, played by Vincent Cassel, as a soldier who returns home and gets seduced by the easy money of Paris in the 1960s. The second part, Public Enemy No. 1, comes to theaters next week. Critics praise Cassel's performance, but warn the story might be best seen as a whole.
