There's no wasted motion in "The Package" (citywide), a post- glasnost political thriller in which an Army sergeant, wrongly wanted for murder, stumbles onto an international anti-disarmament conspiracy. The movie races from scene to scene, moment to moment, country to country, with the breakneck velocity of a motorcycle crashing through a computer room.

Whoosh!! "Days of Thunder" just streaked in (citywide), fast as a race-car paint job and about as flat. The movie's excitement comes from its racing footage; its massive case of attitude comes from producers Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer's assurance that they can retool the formula of "Top Gun," bless it with a little sprinkle of Valvoline and send it out as a brand-new movie. They have a few things working for them. Tom Cruise's slowly dawning grin remains unassailable.

In its first 15 minutes the thoroughly winning "Josh and S.A.M." (citywide) reveals just how painful divorce can be for children as poignantly as any movie imaginable.

"Grumpier Old Men" brings back Jack Lemmon and Walter Matthau as those feisty seniors, John and Max, next-door neighbors in a small Minnesota town, and Ann-Margret as John's lovely wife of six months. Joining them is Sophia Loren, a big plus in an overly contrived comedy strewn with less-than-hilarious geriatric sex jokes that gets by on its formidable star power.

In "Dead Heat" (selected theaters), Treat Williams and Joe Piscopo play a zombie cop and his jocular partner, up against a shadowy scientific syndicate that revives corpses and undead hooligans for its criminal endeavors. It's the kind of goofy idea that might almost work: Williams plays "Roger Mortis," a clean-cut cop who gets decompressed in a dog-execution chamber and then scientifically resurrected by the criminal's apparatus--though only for 12 hours.

One of the latest hoaxes unearthed by the San Fernando Valley Folklore Society (snopes.com) is an e-mail that warns of an unusual street hazard. "What happens is that when you stop for a red light, a young nude woman comes up and pretends to be washing your windshield," the e-mail said. "While she is doing this, another person opens your back door and steals anything in the car."

Remember "Beverly Hills Cop"? It was a loose-jointed movie you could have fun at if you wanted to badly enough--manic but energized, its scatter-gun violence somewhat offset by its sassy, engaging characters. "Beverly Hills Cop II" (citywide) isn't a sequel, it's a heart attack.
