The Da Vinci Code (PG-13)
For all the brouhaha, The Da Vinci Code is really nothing but the Hardy Boys dressed up in the provocative attire of questioning centuries-old Christian beliefs about the divinity of Jesus Christ, the role of Mary Magdalene and other aspects of the faith. If you take this stuff seriously, one way or another, you're sure to be duped. You've got to hand it to Dan Brown: So dark the con of man, indeed. Steve Davis

Ice Age 2: The Meltdown (PG)
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. Scott Renshaw

*United 93 (R)
I can't tell you if writer/director Paul Greengrass got it right as a history lesson. And I can't conceive of how it might be perceived by those whose loved ones are portrayed struggling and dying in an unimaginable situation. All I can say is that United 93 delivers an experience so intense and immediate that I literally felt myself sweating as events unfolded, a knot of anxiety churning in my stomach. Scott Renshaw

Chapel Hills 15

*V For Vendetta (R)

Picture Show

*X-Men: The Last Stand (PG-13)
Sure, director Brett Ratner is no Bryan Singer, the man who made the first two X-Men movies into intelligent, emotionally resonant films that even non-comics fans could love. Yes, Ratner's music-video attention span and inability to linger on a shot for more than a few seconds blunts the impact of some of X-Men: The Last Stand's big emotional moments. Nonetheless, he liked Singer's films as much as you did, and he hasn't tried to fix what ain't broke. Gary Susman
