Those Who Wish Me Dead (out May 13) is an action-thriller about a teenage boy fleeing some well-resourced hitmen. He teams up with a smokejumper played by Angelina Jolie to outrun them. It’s rare to be saying this but the best elements here are the villains. They’re smart guys and their detailed strategic discussions make for good listening. The rest of the film is a more formulaic hero story. Grade: B.
