Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 130 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Matt Reeves
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Keri Russell, Andy Serkis

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.

Deliver Us from Evil

Deliver Us from Evil
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Scott Derrickson
  • Cast: Eric Bana, Édgar Ramírez, Olivia Munn

Sarchie (Bana) is an NYPD cop turned demonologist; he and partner Butler (McHale) investigate a series of crimes which reveal a malevolent presence. Despite a decent performance from Bana and some skilful effects it's preachy, grisly and stupid, with heavy-handed symbolism, a confusing storyline and all the nuance and balance of Fox News.

Earth to Echo
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 89 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Dave Green
  • Cast: Teo Halm, Astro, Reese Hartwig

Kids' drama, in which Tuck (Bradley), Alex (Halm) and Munch (Hartwig) find an alien stranded in the desert, and attempt to get him back to his spaceship. An artless and shameless copy of Super 8; those who think they could make a better herky-jerky found-footage movie may well, in this instance, be correct.

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.

If I Stay
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: RJ Cutler
  • Cast: Chloë Grace Moretz, Mireille Enos, Jamie Blackley

When young cellist Mia (Moretz) and her family are involved in a car accident, she finds her spirit self wondering whether her life is worth returning to. An interesting premise spoiled by an almost comically soft-focus tragedy-lite approach and a screenplay that swarms with clichés.

The Incredibles

The Incredibles
  • 2004
  • USA
  • 120 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Written by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T Nelson, Holly Hunter, Sarah Vowell, Spencer Fox, Jason Lee, Samuel L Jackson, Elizabeth Peña, Brad Bird

Bob Parr (AKA Mr Incredible) is an overweight insurance clerk living in suburbia, but this wasn't always the case. Once upon a time he was a popular do gooder superhero, as was his wife Helen (AKA Elastigirl). But one night something went wrong and all superheroes had to be reassimilated into society through a kind of witness protection scheme. The Parrs now have an average family life with some very unaverage kids, but someone is about to test this family's unity to the max. Astounding, witty and funny Pixar animated adventure film that pushes all the right buttons and references all the best films and classic TV series. Let's face it, this may just be too good for mere kids.

  • 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.

  • US
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Luke Greenfield
  • Written by: Luke Greenfield, Nicholas Thomas
  • Cast: Jake Johnson, Damon Wayans Jr, Rob Riggle

Ryan (Johnson) and Justin (Wayans) are two loser flatmates who decide to pretend to be LAPD officers, only to fall foul of psychopathic criminal Mossi (D'Arcy). Some good ideas and the leads' comic chemistry are let down by uncertain writing, misguided directorial choices and sloppy editing, but it's amiable enough.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Nathan Greno, Byron Howard
  • Cast: Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy

Disney/Pixar funk-up of the classic tale of Rapunzel that is nonetheless traditional to the core, blessed with catchy musical numbers and a plethora of scenes ripped off directly from the studio's own back catalogue (see Aladdin, Little Mermaid et al). Funny and impressive, but lacking charm.

Amadeo (Grint) is a whiz at table football but unlucky at everything else, forced to square off against the bullying Flash (Head) in an attempt to save his village. Cheekily inventive 3D animation from Argentinean director Campanella, standing out from other animated family fare by its quirky characterisation and dry wit.
