Here are snapshots of what our reviewers thought of the movies opening this week in the Seattle area. (Star ratings are granted on a scale of zero to four.)

★★★½ “Abominable” (PG; 97 minutes): This charming, delightful animated kids movie follows a spirited girl (voiced by Chloe Bennet) as she dedicates herself to returning a young yeti to his home on Mount Everest. The visuals are lovely; the story is strong; the music is appealing. Full review. Multiple theaters. — Soren Andersen, Special to The Seattle Times

★★★ “Judy” (PG-13; 118 minutes): Rupert Goold’s movie, set during the final year of Judy Garland’s life, is all over the place. But when Renée Zellweger is on screen, “Judy” jolts to life. Full review. Multiple theaters. — Moira Macdonald, Seattle Times arts critic

★★★ “Monos” (R; 102 minutes): This violent, beautiful and powerfully watchable movie takes its title from the code name used by a group of teenage guerrillas who, on a mud-soaked Colombian mountaintop, have been tasked with guarding an American hostage. Full review. In Spanish, with subtitles, and some English. SIFF Cinema Uptown. — Michael O’Sullivan, The Washington Post

Also opening

★★★½ “The Day Shall Come” (not rated, for mature audiences; 87 minutes): British satirist Christopher Morris hasn’t ever held back with his mercilessly dark, socially biting humor. His most recent film, a brutally, bitterly funny treatise on race and law enforcement in America, is no exception. “Based on a hundred true stories,” in this fable of a naive radical and the scheming FBI agents who seek to groom him into a terrorist for their own political gains, no one is safe from Morris’ sharply skewering eye. Anna Kendrick and Marchánt Davis star. Varsity. — Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
