When Le Gris viciously assaults Carrouges’ wife (Jodie Comer), she steps forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy.

3 chiles — NO TIME TO DIE

Daniel Craig’s fifth and final outing as the secret MI6 superagent James Bond is a fittingly complicated and ultimately satisfying send-off for the actor, whose character as the film gets underway isn’t even Agent 007 any more, but a retiree. The film kicks off with Bond on holiday with his honey, sexy psychiatrist Madeleine Swann, whom we met in Spectre. No Time to Die‘s villain comes in the form of Rami Malek’s Lyutsifer Safin, whose motivation in seeking a genetically programmable bioweapon is murky. An old friend from earlier films, CIA handler Felix Leiter (Jeffrey Wright), shows up to help, while Bond’s replacement at MI6 (a delightful Lashana Lynch) is briefly our hero’s rival. There are a few other surprises along the way, the most meaningful of which involve Bond himself. Years of loss and betrayal have hardened his psychic armor. This chapter-closing installment in the action-thriller saga culminates in an act of not just trust, but something more profound — something both vulnerable and powerful. (Michael O’Sullivan/The Washington Post) Action/adventure, rated PG-13, 163 minutes, CCAC, Regal Santa Fe Place, Violet Crown

3 chiles — VENOM: LET THERE BE CARNAGE

Reporter Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) shares his body — and brain — with a symbiotic alien with a taste for human brains called Venom. Eddie is tired of his corporeal roommate constantly badgering him about the lack of head-eating; Venom is frustrated with Eddie’s lack of ambition and is sure that breaking a big story is just what Eddie needs. That story arrives in the form of unhinged serial killer Cletus Kasady (Woody Harrelson). Eventually Kasady ends up infected by a Venom-like symbiote named Carnage: he’s redder, he’s meaner, and he has way more arms. And the fight is on. It’s a fun fight, to be sure. What the script lacks in originality it makes up for with a streamlined story, a sharp pace, and quips galore. This sequel inhabits the same comfortably dumb space as its predecessor. If you liked the first one, you’ll like this one. (Kristen Page-Kirby/For The Washington Post) Adventure/superhero, rated PG-13, 120 minutes, Regal Santa Fe Place, Violet Crown
