Forty-seven Meters Down (PG-13, ***): Mandy Moore and Clair Holt play sisters on a bonding trip to Mexico whose swim-with-the-sharks adventure turns terrifying when their shark cage breaks free and sinks to the bottom of the ocean. Writer/director Johannes Roberts mostly uses the confines of the tight setting for claustrophobic scares, turning the lightless depths into a spin on haunted-house darkness where a monster lurks somewhere out of sight. He’s perhaps a bit too enamored of plot twists, the sharks are more menacing in shadow than up close, and the actresses’ faces are obscured for most of the movie by cumbersome diving masks that at times reduce them to what is essentially voiceover acting. But even though its sharpest edges have been sanded down to PG-13 standards, the movie still has plenty of glorified B-movie thrills. Anyone holding their breath through The Shallows or even the more existential, slow-paced fright of Open Water will squirm in their seats as Moore and Holt face a dwindling air supply and toothy terror from all sides.

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II (PG-13, ****): James Gunn’s highly anticipated followup to his surprise-hit space adventure manages to make the phrase “more of the same” seem like a compliment. De facto captain Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) returns with his squabbling surrogate family (Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel). After the cosmic miscreants screw over a race of uptight space douches, they’re bailed out by a super-being named Ego (Kurt Russell) who reveals himself to be Peter’s father. But back on Ego’s home planet, Peter’s fellow Guardians suspect trouble, while a trio of villains from their past (Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, and Sean Gunn) pursue them. Gunn’s poptopia of candy-colored space spectacle and 1970s top-forty hits puts the comic back in comic-book movie. The sequel is grand in scale but intimate in story, and heavy on the jokes and intricately choreographed action setpieces. Maybe a bit too heavy, as it runs long at nearly two and a half hours. But if it’s too much of a good thing, it’s only a little too much— and by the time the inevitable sequel rolls around, you’ll be ready for more.

< It Comes at Night (R, **1/2): Writer/director Trey Edward Shults’s paranoid post-apocalyptic horror movie is a claustrophobic, small-scale nightmare that generates a tremendous amount of tension before dissolving into coy abstractions right at the moment originality is demanded. Shults shows an undeniably deft hand with atmosphere and a meditative pacing that belies that chaos churning just beneath the still surface. Paul (Joel Edgerton) lives with his wife (Carmen Ejogo) and son (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) in a self-sufficient house in the woods. Some unspecified contagion has reduced society to nearly nothing, but when Paul invites another hard-up family to stay with them the tensions between the groups threaten to expose them to dangers both from without and within. The unknown is one of the most powerful tools in horror moviemaking, but Shults is willing to concede too much to mystery, leaving open too many of the movie’s central questions in a move that feels less brave and more uncertain.

The Mummy (PG-13, *): A Tom Cruise movie about a powerful figure who makes a pact with a religious cult to gain eternal youth... but he plays a different character? That’s just one of the many missteps in Universal’s woefully misbegotten kinda-remake of their monster-movie classic, alleged to be the first in a Marvel-style shared universe of interrelated characters. Their efforts to emulate the cash cow de jour are most apparent with Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), leader of a secret monster-hunting organization who helps Tom Cruise’s treasure hunter track down an ancient mummy (Sofia Boutella) with superpowers that vary depending on the necessities of the plot. This incarnation of the classic tale is neither the haunting love story of the original nor the zippy adventure of the 1999 Brendan Fraser-starring version. Rather, it’s a generic action-effects summer blockbuster where the horror tropes just happen to be the visual motif digitally plastered over the green screen in front of which the actors perform. Featuring Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance.

Wonder Woman (PG-13, ****): It’s hard to argue that we need more superhero movies, but the dearth of women-centric comic-book fare gives this movie its reason for being. Patty Jenkins more than delivers on the promise, making the first DC movie in a long time to live up to the status of its icon, Princess Diana (Gal Gadot), who ventures off her all-women island paradise to help a wayward World War I pilot (Chris Pine) return home so she can stop the war. A sluggish start and an uninspired climax keep the movie from being great, but there’s greatness in star Gadot and in Jenkins’s overall vision, which delivers the first genuinely inspiring hero in a long time. Wonder Woman is a character to whom audiences can both aspire and relate, and the scenes of her battling through No Man’s Land in the trenches of the Great War are thrilling. This is smart, bombastic stuff, transcending the ubiquity of the superhero movie-industrial complex with the help of an ace supporting cast that includes Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, David Thewlis, and Danny Huston.

Also in or Coming to Local Theaters

All Eyez on Me (R): Biopic about the late rapper and actor Tupac Shakur, played here by Demetrius Shipp Jr.

> Baby Driver (R): Shaun of the Dead and Scott Pilgrim director Edgar Wright helms this zippy, music-fueled action flick about a getaway driver (Ansel Elgort) with a hearing condition who must zoom his way through a disastrous criminal conspiracy hatched by Kevin Spacey, Jon Hamm, Jon Bernthal, and Jamie Foxx.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (PG): Computer-animated adaptation of the popular kids’ book series about a pair of buddies who hypnotize their principal into believing he’s a bumbling superhero. Featuring the voices of Kevin Hart, Jordan Peele, Nick Kroll, Kristen Schaal, Ed Helms, and more.

Cars III (G): Another sequel for Pixar’s least-inspired but toy-friendly franchise, featuring the return of racer Lightning McQueen (Owen Wilson) and perhaps a smidge less Mater (Larry the Cable Guy).

Megan Leavey (PG-13): Military biopic tearjerker about a real-life Marine (played by Kate Mara) who saved several lives during a deployment in Iraq with the help of her trained combat dog.

Paris Can Wait (PG): The Trip, but with mixed genders in the car as Diane Lane heads to Paris with Arnaud Viard, a friend of her distant husband (go figure: Alec Baldwin), to eat their way across France... and romance probably follows. From Eleanor Coppola of the famous directorial family. (Wissmann)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (PG-13): Dead men may tell no tales, but Disney can’t stop telling Jack Sparrow stories— no matter how waterlogged. Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) reunites with old pals (Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush, and Orlando Bloom) and meets a new enemy (Javier Bardem) in this fifth installment in the franchise.

Rough Night (R): A wild bachelorette party gone wrong leads to the death of a male stripper in this raucous comedy starring Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Zoë Kravitz, Ilana Glazer, and Jillian Bell.

Transformers: The Last Knight (PG-13): It’s another Transformers movie, with an indecipherable, irrelevant plot and scenes of massive destruction directed by Michael Bay. That’s either a ringing endorsement or a dire warning. Take it as you will. Featuring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci, and John Turturro.

The relentless magnitude of summer blockbusters can be wearying. Every other movie is a new apocalyp
Bryan Miller
Video Comentary

The relentless magnitude of summer blockbusters can be wearying. Every other movie is a new apocalypse. A city must be sacrificed weekly to appease the box-office gods. On a light week, Spider-Man spares a metropolis. On an especially tough weekend, it’s all the Rock can do to navigate his speedboat through the smoldering wreckage of society.

There’s something especially, perhaps unduly, satisfying about a gussied-up B-movie like Forty-seven Meters Down. The micro scale and survivalist horror premise suggest grindhouse glory the movie never comes close to achieving. What we get instead is a surf-waxed version carefully sanded down to PG-13 edgelessness. Even still, it retains its pulpy pleasures. Claustrophobics and anyone with a nagging fear of open water— or being eaten alive by a bloodthirsty beast of the sea— will do some squirming in the theater seats.

Responsible, heartbroken Lisa (Mandy Moore) and her carefree younger sister Kate (Claire Holt) are on a bonding trip to Mexico when they decide to divert from the more laid-back program of drinking, sunbathing, and flirting with handsome local dudes. They sign up for a dubiously licensed swim-with-the-sharks tour that takes a disastrous turn when their shark cage breaks free and sinks to the ocean floor below, to the tune of forty-seven meters. (The title, alas, does not refer to a traffic-horror movie about the number of available street-parking spaces at any given time in the city of Chicago.)

Forty-seven Meters Down dutifully but expediently speeds through its expository prologue, just enough time to establish some mostly superfluous backstory and show how the sisters move toward disaster one small bad decision at a time, so that we don’t feel like their watery fate is deserved.

Finally, with the snap of a rusty winch, the cage sinks and the movie gets started in earnest.

Lisa and Kate are besieged with calamity on the ocean floor. Not only is their cage still surrounded by great white sharks, but their air supply is limited, Lisa faked her way through the scuba test, the radio signal doesn’t reach below forty meters, and the cage itself is pinned shut by a piece of debris.

Writer/director Johannes Roberts faces his own filmmaking challenges in the briny deep— or whatever studio water tank passes for the briny deep. He’s already set a movie inside a storage container in Storage Twenty-four, so he’s fairly adept with a confined setting. That his two leads spend most of the movie wearing face-obscuring scuba masks is another problem entirely.

Moore and Holt do their best with what is often reduced to a voiceover performance. We can’t see their eyes, and in the dark water even their hair looks alike. The only way to distinguish them is the modesty levels of their bathing suits. A handful of moments aside, most notably a grueling sequence with Moore trying to free her trapped leg, both performers could be stunt divers (when in fact both actresses spent a ton of time underwater).

If Roberts can’t entirely surmount the challenges inherent in the setting, he at least makes good, old-fashioned horror-movie use of it. In most shark-attack fare, the tension exists between the clarity of view above the surface and the total mystery beneath it. Here, deep down where the light barely reaches, the ocean floor is as dark and labyrinthine as a haunted house.

At the very least, it’s easy to know if Forty-seven Meters Down is worth your while. If you found existential terror in the plight of the hopelessly adrift divers in Open Water, rather than just a lot of floating boredom, you’ll be suitably freaked out here. It lacks the crispness and concision of Jaume Collet-Serra’s The Shallows, in which a shark trapped a bleeding Blake Lively atop a gnarl of rock, but the effect is much the same. Roberts isn’t reinventing the captain’s wheel, but he’s sharp enough to at least keep pace with his predecessors.

Video Comentary

The Mummy is a Tom Cruise movie about a powerful figure who makes a pact with a religious cult to gain eternal youth... but he plays a different character.

That’s just one of the many missteps in Universal’s woefully misbegotten kinda-remake of their monster movie classic. The Boris Karloff-starring 1932 original is a haunting love story, and the 1999 Brendan Fraser version is a delightful Indiana Jones knockoff with a supernatural bent. This shambling creature is more a travesty in the Frankensteinian sense, a soulless thing crudely stitched together from bloody chunks of Mission Impossible, the Marvel Universe, and a hundred other grave-robbed sources, sparked to life by the electric power of its star’s ego.

First thing’s first: Tom Cruise cannot simply find a mummy like some pencil-necked Egyptologist. As the generically named treasure hunter Nick Morton, he shoots his way to one with a missile, then dredges it up from the depths of its sandy chamber with the help of his ex-girlfriend (Annabelle Wallis) and his comic-relief sidekick (Jake Johnson).

Team Tom excavates the shriveled body of Ahmanet (Sofia Boutella), a patricidal, fratricidal Egyptian princess who made a deal with an evil god to gain her father’s power. The subsequent curse leaves her with a wholly undefined set of superpowers that wax and wane as the plot requires. She can psychically control Nick, except when she can’t; she can walk through bullets but sometimes can’t take a punch; she can summon sandstorms, scary animals, and skeletons, but she can’t stop Nick from driving away in a truck.

The Mummy is a god-awful hodgepodge pulled in opposing directions by several different agendas, none of which seem to be “Tell a compelling, self-contained story.” Its primary concerns are establishing a Marvel-style shared universe of characters, and being a Tom Cruise movie.

The Universal monsters were actually the first group of characters to populate a shared universe. After their own star turns, Dracula, Frankenstein’s monster, the Wolfman, and company crossed paths in a slew of films, most notably House of Frankenstein and House of Dracula.

Rather than draw on their own history, Universal apes Marvel’s formula, right down to the magical MacGuffin gemstone that will open a portal to an evil universe, and a crack agency of secret agents with a charismatic leader, Dr. Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe). He’s attempting to bring the various monsters together, Avengers-style, to fight a larger threat. Not only is Crowe’s Nick Furious version of Jekyll ridiculous, but all of his dialogue sounds like he’s narrating trailers for future movies.

As a Tom Cruise movie, it checks the essential boxes. Tom Cruise grimly defying G-forces in an airplane? Check. Running really fast a lot with his hands making that karate-chop motion? Check. Unsubtle implications of sexual prowess despite no discernable human connection with the female lead? Check.

Portions of the movie are clearly bent around its star’s preferences, while the rest of it is a warped attempt to impersonate the cash-cow franchise de jour. The result is a twisted mess of an action movie whose horror tropes are just the generic fill-in for whatever computer-generated threat is to be digitally plastered over the green screen in front of which the actors perform. It’s a tiresome, charmless mess, an artless, cynical calculation as cold and stiff as a corpse.

Just be honest with the title, fellas— call it The Munny.

Video Comentary

At the opposite end of the horror-movie spectrum from The Mummy is It Comes at Night. Writer/director Trey Edward Shults’s sophomore feature is an intensely atmospheric, small-scale tale of post-apocalyptic fear and paranoia, one that prefers to leave most of its greatest threats implied. Alas, being the opposite of a bad movie isn’t quite the same as being a great movie.

What we don’t know largely defines It Comes at Night.

We don’t know the source or specifics of the contagion that has destroyed society. We don’t know how grave the damage, how far-reaching the scope. All we know is confined to a house in the woods, where Paul (Joel Edgerton) is holed up with his wife Sarah (Carmen Ejogo) and their teenaged son Travis (Kelvin Harrison Jr.). They have a generator, a water purifier, and a dwindling food supply.

We don’t know how the contagion managed to claim Paul’s father, even when the family follows a strict protocol of wearing gas masks and protective gear outside and has their home hermetically sealed. But it got him, covering his body with ghastly lesions, and we meet the family as they burn the corpse. That grim chore has an especially strong effect on Travis, whose night terrors grow more intense.

And we don’t know the true motivations of Will (Christopher Abbott), an intruder who claims he thought he was breaking into an unoccupied house. Sarah and Paul tentatively agree to let Will bring his own wife and son (Riley Keough and Griffin Robert Faulkner)— and their small stash of food and farm animals— to live in the house.

The house may be sealed, but the fear creeps in from all sides. Nagging inconsistencies in Will’s story rouse Paul’s suspicions. Will’s friendly wife Kim rouses other emotions entirely in Travis, who presumably hasn’t seen a girl close to his own age in a long time. And Will’s spooky young son seems to have a sleepwalking problem... or something more sinister.

This is more than enough material for a claustrophobic horror movie, and Shults shows a knack for building tension. He favors long takes and a slower pace whose stillness belies the chaos just beneath the surface. He’s excessively reliant on dream sequences and an overbearing score, but mostly Shults takes a subtle, sly approach more focused on existential dread than jump scares.

Yet It Comes at Night ultimately frustrates viewers with a third act so open-ended it teeters on meaninglessness. The most frightening thing may always be the unknown, but fidelity to basic storytelling begs for at least some answers. Shults piles so many vagaries and abstractions together— chopped-up dream sequences layered with fragmented scenes full of manipulative omissions— that the conclusion is a muddle.

The ideas come through just fine: the terror of an impossibly uncertain moral quandary, and a primal fear of others that calls to mind our current debate over foreign refugees. Yet practically speaking, the first hour of It Comes at Night is just an austere survivalist thriller dwelling on the same questions as every other episode of The Walking Dead. It’s fine, but it’s table setting for a third act where the movie should distinguish itself rather than balk right at the moment originality is demanded.

< Alien: Covenant (R, **1/2): Ridley Scott’s return to his return to the Alien franchise serves as an unambiguous link between his high-minded prequel Prometheus and the original 1979 creature feature that made him famous. It’s not an apology for Prometheus, but Scott offers the fanbase an olive branch or two in the form of gory alien horror sequences in exchange for indulging his more high-concept sci-fi storytelling. The result is an awkward hybrid that sends a group of space colonists (including Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demián Bichir, and android Michael Fassbender) down to a planet that holds the legacy of a lost ship, the Prometheus. The movie’s beautiful but patience-testing first third gives way to a second act that’s mostly all philosophizing, before sending them back to space for a horror-movie finale. The tonal shifts don’t work, especially what feel like perfunctory scenes of gore devoid of suspense. The monsters, once the stuff of nightmares, now join the undistinguished list of numbing, cartoonish computer effects.

< Baywatch (R, *): This would-be-blockbuster remake of the famously trashy 1990s TV show actually fails to live up to the standards of its source material. The original seems oddly, charmingly chaste in the context of this blunderingly bawdy grossout comedy riff on the concept, which veers between unfunny awfulness and odd stretches of self-seriousness. Not even the mighty Dwayne Johnson, starring as head lifeguard Mitch Buchannon, can drag this hunk of junk up from the bottom of the ocean floor. He leads an elite team of lifeguards (including Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, and Ilfenesh Hadera, along with comic relief Jon Bass and bad-boy new recruit Zac Efron) as they try to disrupt a drug ring run by an evil land developer (Priyanka Chopra). It’s unfunny during weirdly long stretches of development for its shoddy plot, and it’s somehow even more unfunny when deploying limp jokes. It fails even at the level of nostalgia and titillation, perhaps the two easiest qualities for any movie on which to capitalize.

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II (PG-13, ****): James Gunn’s highly anticipated followup to his surprise-hit space adventure manages to make the phrase “more of the same” seem like a compliment. De facto captain Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) returns with his squabbling surrogate family (Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel). After the cosmic miscreants screw over a race of uptight space douches, they’re bailed out by a super-being named Ego (Kurt Russell) who reveals himself to be Peter’s father. But back on Ego’s home planet, Peter’s fellow Guardians suspect trouble, while a trio of villains from their past (Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, and Sean Gunn) pursue them. Gunn’s poptopia of candy-colored space spectacle and 1970s top-forty hits puts the comic back in comic-book movie. The sequel is grand in scale but intimate in story, and heavy on the jokes and intricately choreographed action setpieces. Maybe a bit too heavy, as it runs long at nearly two and a half hours. But if it’s too much of a good thing, it’s only a little too much— and by the time the inevitable sequel rolls around, you’ll be ready for more.

It Comes at Night (R, **1/2): Writer/director Trey Edward Shults’s paranoid post-apocalyptic horror movie is a claustrophobic, small-scale nightmare that generates a tremendous amount of tension before dissolving into coy abstractions right at the moment originality is demanded. Shults shows an undeniably deft hand with atmosphere and a meditative pacing that belies that chaos churning just beneath the still surface. Paul (Joel Edgerton) lives with his wife (Carmen Ejogo) and son (Kelvin Harrison Jr.) in a self-sufficient house in the woods. Some unspecified contagion has reduced society to nearly nothing, but when Paul invites another hard-up family to stay with them the tensions between the groups threaten to expose them to dangers both from without and within. The unknown is one of the most powerful tools in horror moviemaking, but Shults is willing to concede too much to mystery, leaving open too many of the movie’s central questions in a move that feels less brave and more uncertain.

The Mummy (PG-13, *): A Tom Cruise movie about a powerful figure who makes a pact with a religious cult to gain eternal youth... but he plays a different character? That’s just one of the many missteps in Universal’s woefully misbegotten kinda-remake of their monster-movie classic, alleged to be the first in a Marvel-style shared universe of interrelated characters. Their efforts to emulate the cash cow de jour are most apparent with Henry Jekyll (Russell Crowe), leader of a secret monster-hunting organization who helps Tom Cruise’s treasure hunter track down an ancient mummy (Sofia Boutella) with superpowers that vary depending on the necessities of the plot. This incarnation of the classic tale is neither the haunting love story of the original nor the zippy adventure of the 1999 Brendan Fraser-starring version. Rather, it’s a generic action-effects summer blockbuster where the horror tropes just happen to be the visual motif digitally plastered over the green screen in front of which the actors perform. Featuring Annabelle Wallis, Jake Johnson, and Courtney B. Vance.

Wonder Woman (PG-13, ****): It’s hard to argue that we need more superhero movies, but the dearth of women-centric comic-book fare gives this movie its reason for being. Patty Jenkins more than delivers on the promise, making the first DC movie in a long time to live up to the status of its icon, Princess Diana (Gal Gadot), who ventures off her all-women island paradise to help a wayward World War I pilot (Chris Pine) return home so she can stop the war. A sluggish start and an uninspired climax keep the movie from being great, but there’s greatness in star Gadot and in Jenkins’s overall vision, which delivers the first genuinely inspiring hero in a long time. Wonder Woman is a character to whom audiences can both aspire and relate, and the scenes of her battling through No Man’s Land in the trenches of the Great War are thrilling. This is smart, bombastic stuff, transcending the ubiquity of the superhero movie-industrial complex with the help of an ace supporting cast that includes Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, David Thewlis, and Danny Huston.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (PG-13): Dead men may tell no tales, but Disney can’t stop telling Jack Sparrow stories— no matter how waterlogged. Captain Jack (Johnny Depp) reunites with old pals (Keira Knightley, Geoffrey Rush, and Orlando Bloom) and meets a new enemy (Javier Bardem) in this fifth installment in the franchise.

> Rough Night (R): A wild bachelorette party gone wrong leads to the death of a male stripper in this raucous comedy starring Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Zoë Kravitz, Ilana Glazer, and Jillian Bell.

 

> Transformers: The Last Knight (PG-13): It’s another Transformers movie, with an indecipherable, irrelevant plot and scenes of massive destruction directed by Michael Bay. That’s either a ringing endorsement or a dire warning. Take it as you will. Featuring Mark Wahlberg, Josh Duhamel, Stanley Tucci, and John Turturro.

Alien: Covenant (R, **1/2): Ridley Scott’s return to his return to the Alien franchise serves as an unambiguous link between his high-minded prequel Prometheus and the original 1979 creature feature that made him famous. It’s not an apology for Prometheus, but Scott offers the fanbase an olive branch or two in the form of gory alien horror sequences in exchange for indulging his more high-concept sci-fi storytelling. The result is an awkward hybrid that sends a group of space colonists (including Katherine Waterston, Danny McBride, Billy Crudup, Demián Bichir, and android Michael Fassbender) down to a planet that holds the legacy of a lost ship, the Prometheus. The movie’s beautiful but patience-testing first third gives way to a second act that’s mostly all philosophizing, before sending them back to space for a horror-movie finale. The tonal shifts don’t work, especially what feel like perfunctory scenes of gore devoid of suspense. The monsters, once the stuff of nightmares, now join the undistinguished list of numbing, cartoonish computer effects.

Baywatch (R, *): This would-be-blockbuster remake of the famously trashy 1990s TV show actually fails to live up to the standards of its source material. The original seems oddly, charmingly chaste in the context of this blunderingly bawdy grossout comedy riff on the concept, which veers between unfunny awfulness and odd stretches of self-seriousness. Not even the mighty Dwayne Johnson, starring as head lifeguard Mitch Buchannon, can drag this hunk of junk up from the bottom of the ocean floor. He leads an elite team of lifeguards (including Alexandra Daddario, Kelly Rohrbach, and Ilfenesh Hadera, along with comic relief Jon Bass and bad-boy new recruit Zac Efron) as they try to disrupt a drug ring run by an evil land developer (Priyanka Chopra). It’s unfunny during weirdly long stretches of development for its shoddy plot, and it’s somehow even more unfunny when deploying limp jokes. It fails even at the level of nostalgia and titillation, perhaps the two easiest qualities for any movie on which to capitalize.

< Fate of the Furious (PG-13, ****): Is Fate of the Furious a good movie by traditional standards? That’s the wrong question. The question is, “Does the Rock throw a torpedo at a truck?” That answer is yes. Eight movies into the series, a full four since it transitioned from ground-level drag-racing flick to gravity-defying superheroics, no franchise delivers exactly what its audience wants, for all the good and bad that entails. So the flimsy story here attempts to connect several installments via hacker-turned-puppet-master Cypher (Charlize Theron), who turns Dom (Vin Diesel) against his wife Letty (Michelle Rodriguez) and the rest of the team (now including Dwayne Johnson, Kurt Russell, Tyrese Gibson, and Ludacris). In a gleeful bit of illogic, the gang decides to conscript Fast VII supervillain Deckard Shaw (Jason Statham) to join their cause, which significantly ups the Statham factor, so fine, sure. The story is flimsier than ever, the stakes never more arbitrary, yet this eighth Fast and Furious movie still manages to thrill through the scale and audacity of the setpieces and a larger-than-life cast.

Guardians of the Galaxy Volume II (PG-13, ****): James Gunn’s highly anticipated followup to his surprise-hit space adventure manages to make the phrase “more of the same” seem like a compliment. De facto captain Peter Quill (Chris Pratt) returns with his squabbling surrogate family (Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, and Vin Diesel). After the cosmic miscreants screw over a race of uptight space douches, they’re bailed out by a super-being named Ego (Kurt Russell) who reveals himself to be Peter’s father. But back on Ego’s home planet, Peter’s fellow Guardians suspect trouble, while a trio of villains from their past (Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, and Sean Gunn) pursue them. Gunn’s poptopia of candy-colored space spectacle and 1970s top-forty hits puts the comic back in comic-book movie. The sequel is grand in scale but intimate in story, and heavy on the jokes and intricately choreographed action setpieces. Maybe a bit too heavy, as it runs long at nearly two and a half hours. But if it’s too much of a good thing, it’s only a little too much— and by the time the inevitable sequel rolls around, you’ll be ready for more.

Wonder Woman (PG-13, ****): It’s hard to argue that we need more superhero movies, but the dearth of women-centric comic-book fare gives this movie its reason for being. Patty Jenkins more than delivers on the promise, making the first DC movie in a long time to live up to the status of its icon, Princess Diana (Gal Gadot), who ventures off her all-women island paradise to help a wayward World War I pilot (Chris Pine) return home so she can stop the war. A sluggish start and an uninspired climax keep the movie from being great, but there’s greatness in star Gadot and in Jenkins’s overall vision, which delivers the first genuinely inspiring hero in a long time. Wonder Woman is a character to whom audiences can both aspire and relate, and the scenes of her battling through No Man’s Land in the trenches of the Great War are thrilling. This is smart, bombastic stuff, transcending the ubiquity of the superhero movie-industrial complex with the help of an ace supporting cast that includes Robin Wright, Connie Nielsen, Elena Anaya, David Thewlis, and Danny Huston.

It’s a grimly fitting irony that Wonder Woman can’t just Biff! Bam! Pow! her way through a superhero
Bryan Miller
Video Comentary

It’s a grimly fitting irony that Wonder Woman can’t just Biff! Bam! Pow! her way through a superhero movie like the fellas. It’s not enough that she can simply be the centerpiece of a good movie.

No, the greatest danger facing Wonder Woman isn’t the supervillain Ares or Lex Luthor or even Zack Snyder. It’s the nexus of socio-political agendas in which she finds herself trapped, assailed on all sides by thinkpieces, fanboys, “men’s-rights activists,” and purse-snatching Hollywood prognosticators.

The superhero movie-industrial complex has underserved women for years, and DC comics has befuddlingly left Wonder Woman, inarguably one of the world’s ten most iconic comic-book characters, on the bench. Now that they’ve finally granted her a movie of her own, feminists and fangirls are eager to celebrate, and the mere fact of their enthusiasm was cause enough to rouse a cadre of misogynistic jerks. (For example, see the tempest in a popcorn tub over the Alamo Drafthouse’s planned women-only screening of the film.)

It’s hard to actually hear the damn movie over the clash of ideologies, or to suss out from the reviews in the hype: Yeah, but is it really any good?

The answer is yeah, kinda. It’s a thoroughly coherent, occasionally thrilling blockbuster that’s refreshing enough in its novelty to compensate for its streaks of overfamiliarity.

Wonder Woman is at times awfully reminiscent of the first Captain America and Thor movies, but its structure comes not from comics but Disney princesses. The movie begins with a pre-teen Diana scrambling through her gorgeous storybook island home, where she lives with an all-female warrior clan of Amazons. She’s Belle dancing through the streets in Beauty and the Beast, greeting the villagers— or, more recently, Merida from Brave or princess Moana.

What happens to Disney heroines (and most of the heroes, too)? They make impetuous decisions based on their ambition, have a fight with their parents, must go on adventures and fall in love before squaring off against the villains, often peripheral family members.

After an overlong, exposition-heavy coming-of-age prologue on the island, our headstrong princess grows up to be Gal Gadot, and learns her family’s secrets from her badass aunt (Robin Wright) and queen mother (Connie Nielsen). Turns out Diana is actually half-Amazon and half-god, fathered by Zeus for the express purpose of battling the war-crazed god Ares.

When World War I spy Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) crashes on the island, bringing word— and bloody evidence— of a global conflict beyond the sea, Diana takes him along on a singleminded search to kill Ares, whom she thinks must be responsible for a worldwide war.

Though it takes Wonder Woman some time to gather momentum, the second act is excellent. Pine makes a nice tagalong as Diana storms first through the English patriarchy and then literally takes No Man’s Land by force as she dispatches German soldiers on the war front. It’s dazzling stuff, with the gorgeous Gadot gleaming and powerful in her patriotic armor as she battles against a backdrop of grey skies and muck.

Alas, the movie settles for something simpler and more rote for its uninspired climax, which looks too much like a videogame cut scene featuring Danny Huston, Elena Anaya, and David Thewlis. (If you have to watch a videogame, though, it might as well feature those three.)

But director Patty Jenkins gets it right when it counts. Mostly importantly, she and Gadot have created a terrific character to whom audiences can both aspire and relate. Gadot is both conventionally beautiful and physically powerful-looking. Her eyes also flash with wonder and optimism, making her the inheritor to the throne of Christopher Reeve’s Superman. Unlike the DC comic-book fare of late, this is a fun movie with a cohesive storyline starring a character people would actually want to be— or at least be friends with.

It’s tough to make an argument that we need more superhero movies. The dearth of women-centric comic-book films at least gives Wonder Woman a reason for being. Jenkins goes one better by not just delivering on the promise, but doing it with verve. Here’s the rare property that truly does beg for a sequel.
