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: 'Ninjago' doesn't click like previous Lego movies

If you're of a certain age and childless, it's entirely possible you haven't the foggiest idea what a "Ninjago" – of the latest Lego movie – might be. Apparently it is both a show and a toy, but that's as far as I got into the Wikipedia article. With the wild success of both "The Lego Movie" and "The Lego Batman Movie," released just earlier this year, it stands to reason that Warner Bros. would strike while the iron is hot and churn out more Lego-themed movies, like "The Lego Ninjago Movie," which sadly proves that when it comes to the super fun Lego movies, there can be diminishing returns.
