HUNTINGTON, WV (HNN) -  Three films, including Clint Eastwood's latest directorial effort, J. Edgar, open this weekend, but they are all somewhat anti-climatic. Everyone awaits next week's newest Twilight Saga in which Belle becomes pregnant. "Breaking Dawn" will open at 12:01 a.m. Thursday night/Friday morning in most cinemas; others will begin the celebration with a triple feature of the first three flicks from the series beginning around 4 p.m. on Thursday afternoon. (Separate admission required; does not include admission to the midnight  "Breaking Dawn").

COURAGEOUS MINI REVIEW REMINDER: If you liked/loved "Fireproof," then catch "Courageous" before its theatrical run comes to an end. The film's message about fatherless families comes in a Christian perspective. It's a little on the Baptist preachy side (in places), but the evangelical message goes with the territory of ethical and moral choices among four members of the police department. Although it takes courage to bust the bad guys, sometimes, more tenacity comes from working out problems in your family or making ethical decisions at work, even when a stand means turning in evidence against a fellow officer. The acting is above average (no award winners), and, the decisions made have consequences beyond the immediate. Cool car chase and shoot out.

TOWER HEIST: Hand out a toast to The Donald for the year's most visible yet subtle product placement. The structure used for the film is Trump Tower, but that's in small print as the credit's roll. The premise combines comedy and drama as a group of service workers suffer the fate of a Bernie Madoff styled character --- their pensions have been flittered away. Instead of accepting BROKE, they form a "gang" and stage their own robbery retribution. Eddie Murphy brings his acting career back from rigor mortis playing a small time crook now playing with the big dudes. Filled with twists, turns and tweaks (I won't give away the red car secret), the amateurs combine their knowledge of "routines" at the building for an attempt to bring justice to those whose savings has been swiped.
