NOW PLAYING

"The Dark Knight" (PG-13). Dark indeed, this latest "Batman" movie takes awhile to build narrative momentum. Also, the late Heath Ledger as the volatile Joker basically steals the movie from its star, Christian Bale as a brooding Bruce Wayne/Batman. With Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Morgan Freeman. Grade: B- TownMall Regal Cinemas (11:30 a.m., 12:00, 3:00, 3:30, 6:30, 7:00, 9:45,10:15), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (12:30, 3:45, 6:45, 9:50)

"Hancock" (PG-13). The humorous premise is that Will Smith is a superhero who is a skid row alcoholic in his personal life. Many sociological jokes hit their target early in the movie, but the story starts to lose touch with behavioral reality owing to an extreme plot twist and a barrage of conventional special effects. With Charlize Theron and Jason Bateman. Grade: B- TownMall Regal Cinemas (12:15, 4:00, 6:30, 9:15), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (6:55, 9:25)

"Mamma Mia!" (PG-13). You'd better love the silly pop songs by the '70s group ABBA if you attend this adaptation of the Broadway musical about a young woman's search for the identity of her father. With Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth and Stellan Skarsgard. Grade: B+ TownMall Regal Cinemas (11:45 a.m., 3:45, 6:45, 9:15), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (12:55, 4:05, 7:10, 9:40)

"The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" (PG-13). Not reviewed. Brendan Fraser stars in this adventure sequel as an explorer who must stop an emperor from taking over the world. Rob Cohen directs. TownMall Regal Cinemas (12:15, 4:15, 7:15, 10:00), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (12:40, 4:00, 7:00, 9:35)

"Step Brothers" (R). Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly play extremely childish middle-aged men who become squabbling stepbrothers. It's a sloppy comedy, but enough of the juvenile humor hits to make it enjoyable. Grade: B- TownMall Regal Cinemas (11:45 a.m., 4:00, 7:15, 9:30), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (12:35, 2:50, 5:10, 7:20, 9:45)

"Swing Vote" (PG-13). Not reviewed. This satirical comedy stars Kevin Costner is an apathetic voter who becomes a national curiosity when an election comes down to his vote. Joshua Michael Stern directs. TownMall Regal Cinemas (12:00, 3:30, 7:00, 9:45)

"Wall-E" (G). The nearly wordless opening section of this animated movie is quite distinctive, as the title robot explores a skyscraper-filled city that has been abandoned by people. Although the rest of the story becomes much busier and loses some of that special quality, it's always entertaining. Grade: B TownMall Regal Cinemas (11:30 a.m., 3:45, 6:45, 9:30), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (12:45, 3:50)

"The X-Files: I Want to Believe" (PG-13). It's not always easy to believe the murder mystery developments here, but fans of the old TV series will be pleased to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson return to their investigative roles in a world where the paranormal is normal. Grade: C+ TownMall Regal Cinemas (12:30, 4:15, 7:30, 10:00), Carrolltown 6 Cinemas (12:50, 3:55, 7:05, 9:30)
