3 Days to Kill

Picking up where the "kick-ass old dudes" genre hallmark of Taken and Taken 2 left off, Kevin Costner stars as an aging Secret Service agent just trying to be a family man to his estranged family. Retired and facing a terminal illness, our hero is offered an experimental drug that might save his life. In exchange he's given the titular play on words--a short-term assignment to hunt down "the world's most dangerous terrorist." Luc Besson (The Transporter, Taken) wrote it, McG (Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, This Means War) directed it. So ... lotsa things blow up. 117 minutes PG-13.

Frozen

This wonderful CG cartoon--a loose adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen's "The Snow Queen"--is Disney's most Disney film in ages. It's an unapologetic, old-school musical filled with funny sidekicks and not one but two princesses. Kristen Bell ("Veronica Mars") holds her own as the plucky Nordic princess trying to help her winter-conjuring sister. But Broadway baby Idina Menzel is a force to be reckoned with at the terrified young woman with the snow-throwing powers. Josh Gad (The Book of Mormon) steals all the laughs as a talking snowman with a sunny disposition. 108 minutes PG.

Gravity

Alfonso Cuarón (Y Tu Mamá También, Children of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) directs this heavy-duty thriller about a medical engineer and an astronaut (Sandra Bullock, George Clooney) working frantically to save themselves after an accident leaves them spinning hopelessly adrift through space. A technical jaw-dropper and a white-knuckle survival tale, this one will take your breath away in many ways. 90 minutes PG-13.

Lone Survivor

Mark Wahlberg stars in this blunt, true-life, Saving Private Ryan-esque war drama about four members of SEAL Team 10 who participated in a spectacularly failed mission to capture a notorious Taliban leader. The film, depicting the explosive chaos of the crumbling mission, is rather frenzied. But it's got a tense, life-during-wartime intensity to it. It was shot in New Mexico, which may explain why the mountains of Afghanistan look so damn familiar. 121 minutes R.

The Monuments Men

George Clooney directs this based-on-a-true-story action drama about a World War II platoon assigned the unlikely task of rescuing great works of European art from the hands of Nazi thieves. Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, Cate Blanchett, John Goodman and Jean Dujardin star. If only the script were more "movie"-like and less "history lecture"-like. 118 minutes PG-13.

The Nut Job

A bunch of city park-dwelling squirrels plot an Ocean's Eleven-style caper to rob a nut store. Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph, Jeff Dunham and Gabriel Iglesias are among the voicecast of this CGI feature. It comes to us from the makers of the Canadian-South Korean cartoon series "Bolts and Blip." It's the most expensive South Korean co-produced animated film in history. So there's that. 86 minutes PG.

Ride Along

Squeaky, hyperactive comedian Kevin Hart--who I believe dispatched Chris Tucker in one of those Highlander-style "There can be only one" deals several years ago--stars alongside Ice Cube in this basic mismatched buddy cop comedy. Hart plays a motor-mouthed security guard engaged to marry the sister of tough-guy Atlanta Police detective Ice Cube. Cube tries to scare him off with a 24-hour ride along--during which, of course, they fight bad guys and bond. 100 minutes PG-13.

RoboCop

This grim-faced reboot of Paul Verhoeven's hyperbolically violent, wonderfully subversive action movie parody from 1987 loses the original's sense of humor and most of its reason for being. Brazilian director José Padilha (Elite Squad) works up some decent tension, but the script is less of an adrenalized cop movie and more of a mouthy rumination on the ethics of allowing multinational security firms to turn dead cops into superpowered cyborgs. 108 minutes PG-13.
