FIRST impressions can be deceiving. Especially in the case of "Lost's" Emilie de Ravin. Scurrying into a coffee bar in Toluca Lake 20 minutes late -- De Ravin was stuck in traffic -- the actress seems fragile, almost waiflike. Tiny -- she's 5 feet 2 -- the 24-year-old Australian has that same gamin quality of the young Audrey Hepburn or Leslie Caron. Just like those two legendary performers, De Ravin was also a ballet dancer.

The original "Carrie" must be spinning in its film vault. Instead of being allowed to rest in peace, another movie classic has been pointlessly redone. NBC is billing this three-hour version of "Carrie," which airs at 8 tonight and is rated TV-14, as a more faithful adaptation of Stephen King's horror novel because it includes scenes director Brian De Palma and screenwriter Lawrence Cohen left out of the 1976 original -- which only confirms that truer doesn't necessarily mean better.

There's a Hollywood joke that goes, "There are two kinds of agents: bad agents and worse agents." That same range of adjectives could apply to the nasty political operatives who populate the ugly action-thriller "Operation: Endgame," now making a theatrical pit stop before its late-July DVD release. If the script, credited to Sam Levinson "based on an original screenplay by Brian Watanabe" (a dubious ascription at best) spent as much time on character development as it did concocting its raft of explicitly vulgar putdowns, it might have had some actual flesh on its bones.

It helps that "The Chameleon" is based on a true story because much of what occurs in writer-director Jean-Paul Salomé's tight adaptation of Christophe D'Antonio's book might otherwise seem a bit dubious. That's not to say this moody thriller about professional liar Frédéric Bourdin is without intrigue, it's just better viewed with, er, logistical tolerance. The film finds Nicky, a Baton Rouge, La., youngster missing since 1996, turning up four years later in France claiming he was abducted from his hometown with traumatic consequences.

Rian Johnson's debut feature, "Brick," won the Special Jury Prize for originality of vision at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005, but its description -- a noir mystery set in a California high school -- didn't grab me at all. The prize, it turns out, is as apt as the description is limited. Johnson has taken a well-worn, much-revised genre, adapted to what's become a cliched setting and transcended both in the process.

There's only one thing that loves Robert Pattinson more than his legions of hysterical teenage fans and that's the camera. Which helps but doesn't quite save the earnest new romantic drama "Remember Me," whose filmmakers hang everything on those chiseled cheeks and moody eyes. Like Tyler, the angst-ridden 21-year-old NYU student he plays, scowling between class and the coffee shop where he pours all those conflicted feelings into a battered journal, the "Twilight" star is still very much a work in progress.

Green Zone Universal, $29.98; Blu-ray, $39.98 Did "Green Zone" arrive five years too late or 10 years too early? Director Paul Greengrass and writer Brian Helgeland adapt Rajiv Chandrasekaran's nonfiction book "Imperial Life in the Emerald City" into a jittery thriller that deals less with the absurd bureaucracy surrounding the American occupation of Baghdad than with the attempts of one soldier (played by Matt Damon) to learn why his commanders are feeding him bad intelligence.
