Ice Age: The Meltdown (PG)
Like the original Ice Age, in many ways the sequel is a celebration of the kind of unconventional families that don't fit the red-state profile. But ultimately, Ice Age: The Meltdown isn't particularly interesting. It not only lacks a genuine antagonist, but compelling character development as well. If the creators of Ice Age devoted even half as much energy and invention to the main story as they did to the acorn-obsessed rodent Scrat, we'd be talking about a classic for the ages instead of a lot of dead air between moments of brilliance.

*Inside Man (R)
Smooth Denzel Washingon faces off with hyper-cool Clive Owen in this Spike Lee joint, a bank heist flick that's haphazardly structured but energized by Lee's visual verve. Terence Blanchard's mood-shifting soundtrack links organically to the on-screen action, and Lee's lighting director paints the film determinedly urban and gritty. Although this is not typical Lee material, he manages to invest it with some from-the-hip social and racial commentary. Washington's performance, per usual, is wonderfully natural and mature.

Lucky Number Slevin (R)
Lucky Number Slevin is quite a frisky piece of popcorn because it's clear it isn't taking itself too seriously. Until, that is, it begins taking itself too seriously. After the fun of Lucky Number Slevin's first half wears off, there's nothing left but the loud sound of filmmakers patting themselves on the back. Scott Renshaw

*V For Vendetta (R)
Even in an era when the term "graphic novel" has given the comic book an air of legitimacy, you probably think you know what you're getting from a movie like V for Vendetta, which is based on an illustrated story. And you probably aren't expecting what may be the most politically subversive blockbuster ever created. Scott Renshaw
