Capsule reviews of feature films

ATOMIC BLONDE. 2.5 stars. Charlize Theron is a rampaging British agent in Berlin as the wall collapses in 1989, teaming with another agent (James McAvoy) to help a defector and find a traitor. Works well as actioner, not so well as espionage thriller. 1 hr. 55. R (violence, nudity) – Gary Thompson

Movie review: 'Ingrid Goes West' is light but fun

The dark comedy "Ingrid Goes West" – a sort of Instagram-age variant on "Single White Female" – doesn't have much to say, but it has some fun saying it. Ingrid (an intense Aubrey Plaza), a troubled young woman with a history of social-media stalking, moves to Los Angeles to follow Taylor (Elizabeth Olsen), whose perfectly curated life seems to be a model for all that Ingrid's lacks. (Taylor is a sunny, crackle-voiced blonde who's always going on about being #blessed.) Things, I need not say, do not go well.

Movie review: 'Leap!' trips over its sloppy story

The animated feature "Leap!" pirouettes onto screens this weekend, hoping to snag the attention of young audiences during the dog days of summer. This Canadian production, originally titled, "Ballerina," finally hits U.S. theaters equipped with a Carly Rae Jepsen summer jam, "Cut to the Feeling." But you'll spend an hour and 27 minutes waiting for the film to cut to that tune because the ramshackle storytelling leaves much to be desired in this tale of a young girl finding passion and purpose through dance.
