Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (PG)
Ice Age 2: 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 2 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. Although this is not typical Lee material, he manages to invest it with some from-the-hip social and racial commentary. Kathryn Eastburn

The film chronicles the Corps of Discovery, led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, into uncharted territory to find a water passageway to the Pacific Ocean. Not reviewed

Cinemark 16 IMAX

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

The Wild (G)
The creative apocalypse may be upon us now, for I have never seen a film so blatantly like another as The Wild is like last year's Madagascar. Legal professors could stand these two flicks side by side to demonstrate the concept of "points of similarity" that help determine whether a work has been plagiarized. While the parallels between the two films might actually verge on the actionable, the real crime The Wild commits is being incomparably dull. MaryAnn Johanson
