The Steven Seagal experience returns to the multiplexes after a two- to three-year absence. Its star allegedly has spent the intervening years slimming down and buffing up. Still, while every hair remains resolutely in place, Seagal seems to strain more than usual in "Exit Wounds" to hold up both his Dick Tracy visage and Bruce Lee swagger. Where once he would have insisted on dominating every set piece and sequence, Seagal seems almost relieved to let the younger, buffer guys in the cast do the heavy lifting and stylized leaping.

When it comes to "NYPD Blue's" acting ensemble, it's difficult not to think of Kim Delaney, who played Det. Diane Russell for six seasons on the Emmy-winning series. And though Jill Hennessy left "Law & Order" in 1996 after three seasons, there are still fans who think of Assistant Dist. Atty. Claire Kincaid when they hear her name. It's not too surprising.

"Molly" seems like a TV movie masquerading as a big-screen feature; its saving grace is that it offers Elisabeth Shue a splendid part in the title role. At 28, Molly, who is autistic but highly functional, has lived in an institution since the death of her parents 15 years before. She has been well cared for and formed a bond with one of the staffers, Sam (Thomas Jane). Molly suffers from a severe learning disorder, but a cutoff in government spending is thrusting her into the outside world.
