Movie Reviews: Hellboy, Little, Mary Magdalene, Missing Link

A unique female perspective on the message of Jesus elevates the Biblical drama Mary Magdalene. Rich character study and a lovely sense of place elevate Kent Jones' Diane. The 19th-century-set supernatural thriller The Wind suffers from both a lack of scares and wispy thematic subtext.

MaryAnn Johanson finds a cartoonishly awful protagonist at the center of the animated Missing Link. The gender-and-age-reversed spin on Big winds up feeling like a kid's idea of grown-up life in Little.

Eric D. Snider wishes the muddled reboot Hellboy (pictured) could be sent back to the hot place to cook a little longer.

Also opening this week, but not screened for press: the youth-skewing romantic drama After.

In this week's feature review, Transit turns its sort-of-a-period-piece into a warning about not learning lessons from the past.
