Two documentaries about improbable underdogs come to Utah theaters this week, along with the return of a Pixar favorite and an effective new comedy team.
Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart (pictured) elevate the buddy action comedy of Central Intelligence
with their tremendous chemistry in a tale of guys making peace with the high-school persona that used to be their identity. The dynamic documentary Dark Horse
chronicles a group of working-class friends who become owners of a championship race horse, while Raiders! The Story of the Greatest Fan Film Ever Made
tells of childhood friends whose shot-for-shot remake of Raiders of the Lost Ark
might finally be finished.
Eric D. Snider finds the profoundly mediocre biopic Genius
—about literary editor Max Perkins and his various famous clients—offering little insight into any of its characters.
In this week's feature review, Pixar's Finding Dory
is a perfectly solid sequel that still reminds how much more creative Pixar is capable of being.
