On screen this week: 'Narnia,' 'The Tourist,' 'All Good Things'

By Anne Kenderdine

Even the lion looks impressed with the special effects in "Narnia." (Twentieth Century Fox)

Here's how the Post critics ranked this week's releases:

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (PG) "It isn't every kid's movie that wrestles with the subject of faith in a higher power, or sin, or the afterlife. And it isn't every kid's film that can do it so entertainingly." -- Michael O'Sullivan

The Tourist (PG-13) "The high wattage of stars Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie cast the film in a spotlight that would be unflattering for most movies, least of all an insubstantial, tension-free thriller like this." -- John Anderson

I Love You Phillip Morris (R) "The movie strains credulity, at times above and beyond the jaw-dropping events on which it is based." -- Michael O'Sullivan

All Good Things (R) "As absorbing and detailed as 'All Good Things' is, it never manages to levitate beyond tawdry movie-of-the-week voyeurism." -- Ann Hornaday

Marwencol (NR) "[Filmmaker Jeff] Malmberg's thoughtful, compassionate film is about many things -- the mysteries of the brain and the creative spirit, the passions and motives of one idiosyncratic individual. But at its heart, it's about the communities we forge -- real and imagined -- to save our own lives." -- Ann Hornaday
