Eight Below (PG)
Eight Below is pretty amazing. You'll marvel at the dogs, sure, but you'll also be astonished that Mr. 2 Fast 2 Furious (Paul Walker) continues to get lead roles. Director Frank Marshall makes Jerry Shepard and Davis McClaren's trip quick-moving and riveting, but you may as well tune out when the movie starts cutting back and forth between the humans, safely back in America, and the dogs, left to fend for themselves in increasingly perilous conditions. Tricia Olszewski

The reality of Harrison Ford's advancing years makes Firewall feel like a slightly different chapter in his film history. He's playing a computer geek whose best butt-kicking days have passed him by and that subtext delivers more drama than the script can muster. Scott Renshaw
