Keenen Ivory Wayans, Jill Hennessy

Talk show host Wayans is in action-hero mode hereā€”and one mighty glum guy. With good reason. In Most Wanted, he plays a Marine falsely fingered as the triggerman when the First Lady is assassinated. He must avoid capture while simultaneously exposing the real bad guys, a military bigwig (Jon Voight, spitting nails) and a billionaire (Robert Culp). All of which means lots of chases, explosions and jumps off roofs. Wanted won't be found wanting by action fans, but neither is it ever more than routine. (R)
