CRITICS’ CHOICES

“Midnight Special” — A Michael Shannon-starring drama that announces the arrival of Jeff Nichols as a filmmaker in total control of his technique as well as our emotions. A bravura science fiction thriller that explores emotional areas such as parenthood and the nature of belief, it’s a riveting genre exercise as well as something more. (1:51) PG-13.

“Zootopia” — Bursting with a rich blend of timely themes, superb voice work, wonderful visuals and laugh-out-loud wit, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ latest is quite simply a great time at the movies. (Gary Goldstein, March 4) (1:48) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:35, 1, 3:40, 6:20, 9 p.m.; Fri.-Sun.: 2, 4:40, 7:25, 9:55 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 2:20, 4:50, 7:20, 9:50 p.m.

ALSO PLAYING

“Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” — Zack Snyder, a strong technician whose slam-bang emphatic, occasionally operatic style seems made for comic book adaptations, has been well-served by an adept script co-written by Chris Terrio and David S. Goyer, which raises a number of interesting issues. (2:31) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:30, 1:30, 2:50, 5, 5:40, 8:30 p.m.; Fri.-Sun.: 1:30, 4:10, 5:10, 8:40 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 1:30, 2:30, 6, 8:30, 9:25 p.m.

“The Divergent Series: Allegiant” — This next installment taken from the best-selling books is the kind of movie where when a character says “We’re gonna be OK,” you know their troubles are just beginning. Especially if that character’s name happens to be Tris Prior. (2:01) PG-13.

“London Has Fallen” — This by-the-numbers slog, which returns stars Gerard Butler and Aaron Eckhart, represents a geopolitical obliteration fantasy flushed from the mind of the angriest and dumbest and most conspiracy-minded among us. (1:39)

“Miracles From Heaven” — While the film runs a bit long, and the heartstrings-tugging becomes overwrought, overall, this family melodrama starring Jennifer Garner is surprisingly effective, even for those of little faith. (1:49) PG.
