(Thriller, PG-13)

Zinema 2

"Son of God"

(Historical drama, PG-13)

The first feature in recent memory telling us a life-spanning story of Jesus Christ recounts the events with great reverence but, alas, is not a good movie. The special effects are just OK, and in the title role, Portuguese-born heartthrob Diogo Morgado hits a lot of wrong notes. (Richard Roeper) 1.5 stars

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug"

(Fantasy, PG-13)

There's far less fussing about in this movie than in its precursor "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," and although "Smaug" moves at a faster pace it still feels over long. At least this leg of the quest features giant spiders. Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen and Richard Armitage return to star. (Richard Roeper) 3 stars

Zinema 2

"The Lego Movie"

(Family comedy, PG)

"The LEGO Movie" is the first full-length theatrical LEGO adventure. The original 3D computer-animated story follows Emmet (Chris Pratt), an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared. Summary by Warner Bros

Duluth 10, Lakes 10, Premiere

"The Monuments Men"

(Historical action, PG-13)

One of the most old-fashioned and at times almost breezy World War II films in recent memory is about middle-aged curators recovering art stolen by the Nazis. George Clooney directs himself and his co-stars (including Matt Damon and Bill Murray) as if he had watched "The Dirty Dozen" on a continuous loop for a week. (Richard Roeper) 3 stars

(Drama, PG-13)

Based on the 2009 investigative book by BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith, "The Lost Child of Philomena Lee," "Philomena" focuses on the efforts of Philomena Lee (Judi Dench), mother to a boy conceived out of wedlock -- something her Irish-Catholic community didn't have the highest opinion of -- and given away for adoption in the United States. After starting a family years later in England and, for the most part, moving on with her life, Lee meets Sixsmith (Steve Coogan), a BBC reporter with whom she decides to discover her long-lost son.

(Sci-fi action, PG-13)

The 2014 version of "RoboCop" takes advantage of the superior technology available now, but doesn't match up to the original when it comes to story and cast. As Alex Murphy, the wounded officer converted into RoboCop, Joel Kinnaman comes across as a wooden human being AND a wooden robot. (Richard Roeper) 2 stars
