Ten years after the events of 2011's Rise of the Planet of the Apes, simian leader Caesar (Serkis) must work with human leader Malcolm (Clarke) to forge an alliance between apes and men. Thought-provoking and exciting, with fine performances from Serkis, Clarke, Oldman and Kebbell, it's a blockbuster for grown-ups.

The Expendables 3

The Expendables 3
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 126 min
  • Directed by: Patrick Hughes
  • Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas

Mercenary Barney Ross (Stallone) goes up against colleague-gone-rogue Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), a ruthless arms dealer. The action is fine, and the interplay between the somewhat ageing stars remains the film's biggest asset, but a lazy script, watered-down violence and general lack of risk-taking make for predictable viewing.

  • Directed by: James Gunn
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Vin Diesel, Bradley Cooper, Lee Pace, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan, Djimon Hounsou, John C. Reilly, Glenn Close, Benicio del Toro

When space adventurer Peter Quill (Pratt) finds himself sharing a prison cell with assassin Gamora (Saldana), genetically-modified bounty-hunting raccoon Rocket (Bradley Cooper) and other crims, they must face power-hungry evildoer Ronan (Pace). With a gag-stuffed script, lively direction and outstanding performances, this adaptation of an obscure Marvel comic is enormous fun.

  • 96 min
  • Directed by: Damon Beesley, Iain Morris
  • Cast: Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas, Blake Harrison

Eternal teenagers Will, Simon, Neil and Jay head to Australia in pursuit of Jay's lovely ex, Jane (Bewley). Heaving with bad-taste humour, it manages to feel less tired than the first film thanks to energetic direction, honed performances and some truly spectacular stupidity.

  • US
  • 89 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Quale
  • Written by: John Swetnam
  • Cast: Sarah Wayne Callies, Richard Armitage, Jeremy Sumpter

Gary (Armitage) is an Oklahoma dad with two estranged sons, one of whom needs rescuing when tornadoes come to town … but it's difficult to care about the stereotypical characters in this clichéd disaster drama, and the frustrating decision to shoot it found-footage style makes it nauseating to watch and hard to follow.

The Lego Movie

The Lego Movie

  • U
  • Directed by: Phil Lord/Christopher Miller
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Will Ferrell, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Charlie Day, Liam Neeson, Morgan Freeman, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Cobie Smulders

Emmett (Pratt), a regular Lego construction worker, finds himself acclaimed as the 'Special', who will save the Lego universe from evil Lord Business. Fast, funny, blisteringly paced and hugely inventive, it's also so layered with ironic detachment that the attempt at a sincere final act falls flat; still, good fun for adults and kids.

  • US/France
  • 89 min

  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Written by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Morgan Freeman, Analeigh Tipton

Lucy (Johansson) is forced to be a drug mule by crime boss Mr Jang (Choi), but when the drugs leak into her system, she acquires superhuman powers. Insane and largely humourless but ambitious and entertaining action flick, and it's satisfying to see a formidably intelligent and physically ferocious female at the centre.

  • 124 min

  • Directed by: Craig Gillespie
  • Cast: Jon Hamm, Aasif Mandvi, Bill Paxton, Suraj Sharma, Lake Bell, Alan Arkin

JB Bernstein (Hamm) is a struggling sports agent in Major League Baseball who has the idea of harnessing the fast-bowling skills of cricketers. Based on a true story, this is an uninspired triumph-of-the-underdogs dramedy with little to offer anyone who isn't besotted with baseball, cricket or the leading man.

  • 2 stars
  • 2014

  • 83 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Roberts Gannaway
  • Cast: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen

When perky aeroplane Dusty (Cook) is forced to give up racing, he decides to retrain as a firefighter under crusty-but-fair Blade Ranger (Harris). Gannaway's sequel is better than the dismal original, but even as simple-minded entertainment it's a pity about the sexual and racial stereotyping and broad, male-orientated humour.

  • US
  • 102 min

  • Directed by: Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller
  • Cast: Jessica Alba, Powers Boothe, Josh Brolin, Rosario Dawson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Eva Green

Marv (Rourke) teams up with Dwight (Brolin) on a mission to rescue Dwight's former lover Ava (Green) from her sadistic husband. Rodriguez and Miller's follow-up to 2005's Sin City is, like its predecessor, a visual masterpiece but in narrative terms it's a schlocky, sweaty exercise in style over substance.
