“RoboCop,” “Lone Survivor” and “Son of God” lead the releases Tuesday, June 3. Star ratings are by Seattle Times movie reviewers, freelancers or wire services. For full reviews, search the title at seattletimes.com. Release dates are subject to change.

★★★½  “RoboCop” (PG-13): This remake of the 1987 sci-fi thriller stays true to the original’s concept — fatally maimed Detroit policeman Alex Murphy (this time played by Joel Kinnaman) restored to life as a cyborg enforcer — “while branching out in all sorts of interesting directions,” writes reviewer Soren Andersen. “There are plenty of high-tech gunbattles ... which make it a real pulse-pounder. But it’s the intelligence behind the gunplay that makes it distinctive.”

★★★  “Lone Survivor” (R): Outgunned and outnumbered, four Navy SEALs (Mark Wahlberg, Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch and Emile Hirsch) — on a reconnaissance mission in Afghanistan to hunt down a ruthless Taliban commander — battle fiercely and suffer grievously. Writer-director Peter Berg based his movie on an incident that took place in the summer of 2005.

★★  “Son of God” (PG-13): The big-screen spinoff of the History Channel miniseries “The Bible” follows the life of Jesus, starring Diogo Morgado.

 ★★ “In the Blood” (R): A newlywed (Gina Carano) fights — with bone-crunching skill — to find her husband (Cam Gigandet) after he disappears on their Caribbean honeymoon.

★  “The Motel Life” (R): Two brothers (Emile Hirsch and Stephen Dorff) go on the run after a hit-and-run accident.
