THE BOURNE LEGACY — This fourth film in the franchise may seem heady and disorienting and hard to follow at first — until you realize it's really about drug addiction, and the lengths to which a junkie will go to get his fix. PG-13 for violence and action sequences. 135 mins.


1/2



BRAVE — A beautiful-to-look-at princess story that begins promisingly but still feels old-fashioned and safe. PG for scary action, rude humor. 93 mins.




THE CAMPAIGN – Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis have come together to take a shot at politics. R for language, partial nudity, sexual content. 85 mins.



THE DARK KNIGHT RISES – It has dozens of characters, an epically complicated vision of good and evil and a score that rises up every few minutes. What's missing is the anguish, perversity and danger that gave such weight to its predecessor. PG-13 for action violence, sensuality, strong language. 164 mins.




DIARY OF A WIMPY KID: DOG DAYS – An adolescent boy tries to survive summer misadventures in such fraught situations as swimming at the public pool and going camping. PG for rude humor. 94 mins.




THE EXPENDABLES 2 – When you're filling the screen with every big-screen action star of the past 25 years – except for Mel Gibson, Wesley Snipes and Steven Seagal – and every one of them needs his own body count, you see the problem. R for strong bloody violence. 101 mins.


1/2



HOPE SPRINGS — You don't have to be married for 31 years like the stuck-in-a-rut couple Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones play to feel inspired by the film's message about the importance of keeping your relationship alive. PG-13 for mature thematic content involving sexuality. 99 mins.


.



ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT – That squirrel-rat combination called Scrat, as usual, inadvertently causes a cataclysmic event. PG for mild rude humor and action. 87 mins.




THE ODD LIFE OF TIMOTHY GREEN — Adapting a short story by Ahmet Zappa (son of Frank), Peter Hedges tries for old-fashioned wholesomeness only to flounder amid a well-intended but sappy tale of a childless couple mystically granted a test run at parenthood. PG for mild thematic elements and brief language. 104 mins.




PARANORMAN — The frequently wondrous and whimsical visuals far surpass the disappointingly slipshod story of an 11-year-old boy named Norman who can see and speak to the dead. PG for scary action and images, thematic elements, some rude humor and language. 92 mins.




SPARKLE — This remake of the 1976 girl-group tale is like a box of July Fourth sparklers: It sizzles briefly. Not how we'd like to remember Whitney Houston or welcome Jordin Sparks to the big screen. PG-13 for mature thematic content involving domestic abuse and drugs, and for violence, language and smoking. 116 mins.



TED – A pot-smoking, four-letter-word-spewing, anthropomorphic teddy bear is front and center in this deliciously weird assault on middle-class American values. R for crude and sexual content, pervasive language and some drug use. 106 mins.




TOTAL RECALL – In the future, a factory worker's role-playing mental vacation as a super-spy goes awry, leaving him a hunted man and blurring the lines between reality and fantasy. PG-13 for intense sci-fi violence/action, sexual content, brief nudity and language. 116 mins.
