After several years of major releases, it has finally become clear what the DreamWorks strategy is: Each summer, they try to revive some long-dormant Hollywood genre by giving it a splashy, special-effects-laden modern spin. In 1998, they successfully revived the flag-waving World War II epic with Steven Spielberg's "Saving Private Ryan." Last summer, they tried (with considerably less success) t ... ...
