Capsule Reviews

Jan. 23: Capsule reviews of feature films

AMERICAN SNIPER 3 stars. Bradley Cooper delivers a powerful turn as Chris Kyle, the real-life Navy SEAL credited with the most kills of any sniper in U.S. military history. Clint Eastwood directs this taut Iraq War-era drama, although the sequences with Kyle returning stateside are diminished by textbook scenarios of family dysfunction and discord. 2 hrs. 12 R (violence, profanity, adult themes) — Steven Rea

ANNIE 2 1/2 stars. Ho-hum remake, and update, of the movie musical about a plucky orphan and the moneyed patriarch whose icy heart is toasted like campfire marshmallows once he lets the girl into his life. Beasts of the Southern Wild’s Quvenzhané Wallis is a charmer in the title role, Jamie Foxx, as the Daddy Warbucks-ian Will Stacks, is a cell phone mogul who, sadly, appears to be phoning his performance in. 1 hr. 58 PG (adult themes) — Steven Rea

Movie Reviews

‘Strange Magic’ is lame animated Lucas fare from Disney

2

“Strange Magic” is a cartoon fantasy cooked up from a half-baked idea from George Lucas.

The hook in that this tale of fairies fighting goblins over a love potion is that every minute or three, some fairy, elf or goblin bursts into song. Those songs cover over 60 years of pop music history, from Elvis to ELO (the title tune), The Four Tops to Lady Gaga. And since they’re covered by everyone from Evan Rachel Wood to Alan Cumming and Broadway baby Kristin Chenoweth, parents will have a “Who WAS that?” puzzle, something to while away the time with as their kids doze off in the seats next to them.
