Most Wanted

It's slow and predictable, but this action thriller written by star Keenen Ivory Wayans contains a few surprisingly subtle moments. Wayans, a crack-shot marine unjustly convicted of murder, is on his way to death row when he's snapped up by corrupt lieutenant colonel Jon Voight, who persuades him to participate in the assassination of an above-the-law industrialist in exchange for his freedom. But he's framed for an even-higher-profile murder, and he and Jill Hennessy, a doctor who inadvertently videotaped it, go on the lam. Their understated relationship has an appealing sort of minimalism. Wayans doesn't bother to explain his situation to Hennessy, who thinks he's abducting her; he just continues trying to stay alive and clear his name, and eventually she gets the idea. Directed by David Glenn Hogan.
