Tony Gilroy, best known for writing credits on all three “Bourne” films, has poured the energy pent-up during a decade and a half in Hollywood into this strong and confident directorial debut about desperate men searching for redemption in a cold and ruthless world of high stakes corporate and legal shenanigans. Gilroy starts with his impressively heightened and dramatic dialogue, his ability to get people to talk articulately while they’re at a fever pitch of anxiety and concern. Added to this is an unlooked for gift for creating intensity on screen. As a director, Gilroy has an unmistakable instinct for the emotional jugular and a breakneck storytelling style that pulls you through his story, no stragglers allowed. (2:07) R for language, including some sexual dialogue.

The third installment of the “Resident Evil” franchise picks up several years after the T-virus from the earlier films has spread around the world, turning those infected into the walking dead, and even zombie dogs and a sky full of zombie crows dot the landscape. (1:33) R for strong horror violence throughout and some nudity.

3:10 TO YUMA
What’s most impressive about this new version of the 1957 classic starring Russell Crowe as a charismatic outlaw and Christian Bale as the downtrodden rancher who crosses his path is that James Mangold directs it with such energy and passion it’s as if he didn’t know it’s all been done before. Approaching this material with the enthusiasm of a famished man confronting his first square meal in days, Mangold has brought welcome intensity to the project, giving “3:10 to Yuma” a visceral, immediate quality that makes it realistic and mythic all at the same time. (1:57) R for violence and some language.
