    Mr. Peng has charisma, though his moves are less convincing than those of an earlier Fei.... But “Legend” does offer the hefty authority of Mr. Hung, who at 64 can still — almost — hit, kick and do wire work with the best of them.

    Mr. Hosoda is skilled with fight scenes, and his settings — the pastel-hued Jutengai and the drab Shibuya, evoked at times with surveillance-camera perspectives and crowd-paranoia angles — are impressive. But the characterizations and conflicts here are strictly generic

    The pieces don’t entirely cohere, but Ms. Smith has a promising sensibility.

    Mr. Irons handily hits the emotional beats, as does Mr. Patel.

    The ending to this fable misses the opportunity for broader metaphorical resonance, but getting there has its own unnerving rewards.

    We are largely left with the images, which take us far, if not far enough.

    Mr. Klein is well served by his actors, who exude conviction, charisma and palpable ardor.
    • 48 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    Almost every image in this movie — from webcams, websites and laptop cameras — appears on a monitor. Scenes pulse with the Internet’s speed and sprawl, aided by clever editing that pops. The effect is insular, off-putting and disconcertingly familiar.

    Narrative depth may be in short supply, but the energy, invention and humor are bracing.
    • 66 Metascore

    Mr. Gilady, a documentarian making his fiction feature debut as a writer and director, over-stacks the deck with this belabored if artfully shot story.

    The movie benefits greatly from Mr. Amoedo’s largely steady direction and the uniform acting skills of its Chilean cast (performing in English).

    [A] modest, proficient thriller.

    The film may leave you hungry for deeper insight into some its most renowned purveyors.

    Mr. Chi, making his feature debut with Tentacle 8, lavishes attention on his characters at the expense of the through line binding them.
    • 73 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    The actors are uniformly impressive, and Mr. Wheatley’s longtime cinematographer, Laurie Rose, shooting in black and white, combines stunning pastoral compositions with bursts of graphic violence punctuated by blazing flintlocks.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Andy Webster
    A savvy exercise in inspirational feel-good cinema lightly seasoned with grit.

    • 60 Andy Webster
    The director, Joey Kuhn, making his feature debut from his own script, has created fairly credible and sympathetic characters, despite the 1-percenter milieu.

    Mr. Payet, who is one of the film’s directors and screenwriters, is a comedy star in France, and this movie is facile with its comic rhythms and dramatic flow.

    There’s much sympathy but little tension in P J Raval’s new documentary.

    A kaleidoscopic travelogue depicting demonstrations of faith worldwide.

    Mr. Wirthensohn, who has known Mr. Reay since both were models, sees Mr. Reay’s life as a metaphor for the vanishing middle class. But Mr. Reay merely comes across as an aging casualty of Manhattan fashion, vainly chasing his fortune in a fickle industry that prizes youth.

    The Boy, despite remarkable performances and gorgeous imagery, does not sufficiently flesh out its subject.
    • 26 Metascore

    This isn’t activism; it’s by-the-numbers suspense.

    Only You is served very well by Ms. Tang (a star of Ang Lee’s “Lust, Caution”). Whether playing elated, sorrowful, coy or petulant, she consistently provides the spark the movie could use more of.

    [A] competent but slight thriller.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Webster
    Though rich in period detail, the movie grows tiresome with solemn, protracted soap-operatic encounters laden with glowering stares and tearful outbursts.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 50 Andy Webster
    This frenetic movie has moments of wit, and Ms. Feiffer, a seasoned screen and Broadway performer, has range, stamina and charisma.

    The movie may suffer from a surfeit of excesses, but it does have arresting, if overwrought, things to say about domestic abuse in India.

    Having painted Victor as a transgressive offender, Mr. Senese backpedals furiously with a coda asserting the potential rewards of genetic manipulation. It isn’t convincing.

    Mr. Hough, a “Dancing With the Stars” champion, impresses with his footwork and sufficiently fulfills his romantic-lead duties. BoA is cute and appealingly impudent, but a bit more remote. On the floor, however, their chemistry ignites.
