Two new movies in theaters this weekend, reviews underwhelming

There are two new movies opening this weekend in the movie theaters. However, as has been mentioned before, there are few big blockbusters intended by studios for this time of year. We are between the summer and fall seasons, and the studios are dumping their films that they feel should get a theater release, but are not destined for greatness.

Here are the movies opening August 29, 2014:

The November Man - Pierce Brosnan, Olga Kurylenko, Will Patton. Brosnan is a former secret agent (NOT James Bond, either) known as The November Man. He is a former CIA-agent known for his ability to kill and kill well. He has been retired for some time now, trying to live a quiet life, until he is asked out of retirement. It soon turns bad as moles within the organization reveal themselves and the danger gets higher and more intense. However, critics are saying that this one is boring, does nothing particularly original and is easily forgettable. Rated R.

As Above, So Below - Edwin Hodge, Ben Feldman, Perdita Weeks. Yet another installment in the found footage horror genre. This one takes place below the streets of Paris where one of the world's largest collection of bones make up the catacombs. A group of explorers and ghost hunters ventures down there and soon discover that the catacombs house a terrible, terrifying secret. Critics are saying that this one is just another boring entry in the found footage genre. Although it starts with a promising premise, it soon degenerates into mediocrity and cliches. Rated R.
