A WALK AMONG THE TOMB­STONES In 1987’s Lethal Weapon, Danny Glover fa­mously said of ac­tion and gun­fights, “I’m too old for this [stuff].” Liam Nee­son is much older now than Glover was then, and he’s only get­ting warmed up. Here he plays an ex-cop, hired to avenge a drug king­pin whose wife was mur­dered. Rated R. 113 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14, Santa Fe. (Not re­viewed) ZULU This near-clas­sic 1964 Bri­tish ad­ven­ture film earned a beau­ti­ful restora­tion job on its 50th an­niver­sary and is now mak­ing its rounds at screen­ings in se­lect ci­ties. It’s based on the real-life story of 150 sol­diers who suc­cess­fully held off an at­tack by 4,000 Zulu war­riors, and the sec­ond half of­fers non­stop grit­tily filmed ac­tion with a rous­ing score by John Barry. It’s easy, though, to find the faults in the first half — too much stilted di­a­logue, clichéd char­ac­ters, and an un­nec­es­sary turn from Jack Hawkins as a crazed preacher. But it’s bound to be fun to watch on the big screen. Not rated. 138 min­utes. Jean Cocteau Cin­ema, Santa Fe. (Robert Nott) stun­ning vis­tas and, as be­fore, sump­tu­ous meals — laugh­ing all the way. On their sec­ond out­ing as food re­view­ers, Steve Coogan and Rob Bry­don, play­ing fic­tional ver­sions of them­selves, re­verse roles; this time Coogan is the more set­tled of the two. The im­pro­vised tête-à-têtes and (mostly) spot-on im­per­son­ations that made the first film a de­light haven’t changed. Not rated. 108 min­utes. The Screen, Santa Fe. (Michael Abatemarco)
