Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

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.

Earth to Echo

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.

Edge of Tomorrow

Edge of Tomorrow
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 113 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Doug Liman
  • Written by: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton
  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Emily Blunt, Bill Paxton

With Earth under attack from aliens, cowardly soldier Cage (Cruise) is killed, only to wake up the day before, stuck in a time loop. Groundhog Day crossed with Starship Troopers? Yep, and despite a nonsensical coda it's enormous fun, with a witty script, superb work from Cruise and Blunt, and thrilling action sequences.

Grace of Monaco

Grace of Monaco
  • 3 stars
  • 2013
  • Belgium, Italy, France, Monaco, US
  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Olivier Dahan
  • Cast: Nicole Kidman, Tim Roth, Frank Langella, Parker Posey

The tale of the transformation of Hollywood star Grace Kelly (Kidman) into a princess of Monaco, and her ensuing clashes with Hitchcock (Griffiths) and de Gaulle (Penvern). Possibly thanks to executive meddling during the edit, it's a confused and flyweight piece with little emotional depth.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy
  • 4 stars
  • 2014

  • 122 min
  • 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.

Hercules

Hercules
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • Directed by: Brett Ratner
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, John Hurt, Ian McShane

Hercules (Johnson) is used to relying on mercenaries, trickery and suggestion to enhance his reputation, but when's called to defend Thrace from a warlord and his supernatural army, he's put to a proper test. Ratner keeps things light, with knowing humour papering over the lack of emotional depth. Daft but watchable.

  • Directed by: Sajid Nadiadwala
  • Cast: Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Nawazuddin Siddiqui

In this madcap remake of the 2009 movie, uptight psychiatrist Shaina (Fernandez) reminisces about her romance with bad boy thief and adrenaline junkie Devi (Khan). Fernandez is a fierce dancer, Khan not so much, faring better in comedy and action scenes. Droll, bewildering and outrageous.

  • Directed by: James DeMonaco
  • Cast: Frank Grillo, Carmen Ejogo, Zach Gilford

Engagingly blunt sequel to 2013's low-budget home invasion sensation The Purge: here, LA cop Sergeant (Grillo) finds himself defending four innocent people from the annual night of state-sanctioned, city-wide lawlessness. With striking performances from Grillo and Ejogo, it's patchy but proficient, and an intelligent expansion of the franchise.

Blu (Eisenberg) and Jewel (Hathaway) travel to the Amazon to discover Jewel's family, but old adversary Nigel (Clement) is keen on revenge. Amiable sequel to the macaw-themed 2010 original; despite dubious racial stereotyping in the supporting cast, there's enough colour and incident to make for passable family entertainment.
