The Amazing Spider-Man 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 142 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Marc Webb
  • Cast: Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Jamie Foxx, Dane DeHaan

Peter Parker (Garfield) goes up against new supervillains Electro (Foxx) and Harry Osborn (DeHaan). Garfield and Stone have enormous chemistry, Foxx and DeHaan bring complexity and pathos, and the rebooted franchise continues to capture the original character's wise-cracking energy in a way that the Raimi trilogy didn't.

  • 2 stars
  • 2014

  • 139 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Neil Burger
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Kate Winslet

In a dystopian future where people are assigned to different factions of society based on their talents, Tris (Woodley) discovers that she's dangerously multi-talented. The story seems over-familiar, director Burger takes too long to set things up and despite appealing performances from Woodley and James, there's little peril or excitement.

Princess Anna (Bell) is disturbed to find that her sister Elsa (Menzel) can create ice and snow, but when Elsa goes into exile the kingdom freezes, and Anna and friends must find her. With no celebrity voice-overs or pop culture gags, just a venerable story, good songs and classic characters, it's an old-fashioned delight.

Gustave H (Fiennes), the flamboyantly orderly concierge of the Grand Budapest Hotel, likes to romance the elderly guests, but when his wealthy lover (Swinton) dies mysteriously, he finds himself framed for murder. Perhaps Anderson's most uncompromisingly eccentric and perfectly realised film to date, with an astonishing and revelatory comic performance from Fiennes.

  • 3 stars
  • 2013
  • US/Ireland
  • 91 min
  • Directed by: Ruairi Robinson
  • Cast: Liev Schreiber, Romola Garai, Elias Koteas, Olivia Williams

Days before the end of a six-month mission to the surface of Mars, the team is exposed to a fossilised bacteria that starts turning them into deadly space zombies. The cast is excellent, there's stunning cinematography, and in spite of the pulpy story and some confusing editing it's an engaging sci-fi thriller.

  • 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.

  • Cast: Jared Harris, Sam Claflin, Olivia Cooke

Britain, 1974: Professor Coupland (Harris) gets a group of students to conduct experiments on Jane (Cooke), in the hope of curing her mental troubles. Demonic goings-on ensue. Bogged down in backstory and exposition, this bland shocker does the revived Hammer Films brand no favours.

  • 2011
  • Indonesia/USA
  • 100 min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gareth Evans
  • Cast: Iko Uwais, Doni Alamsyah, Yayan Ruhain

An Indonesian SWAT team storms a Jakarta tower block intending to take down crime lord Tama (Sahetapy), but finds itself trapped. About as good a film as you can make about men repeatedly punching each other in the face; Evans' low-budget, high-impact approach has enormous gusto and ingenuity.

  • Written by: Gareth Evans
  • Cast: Iko Uwais, Arifin Putra, Alex Abbad, Oka Antara, Tio Pakusadewo, Julie Estelle, Cecep Arif Rahman, Yayan Ruhian, Ryuhei Matsuda, Kenichi Endo, Kazuki Kitamura

In Evans' sequel to his 2011 original, rookie cop Rama (Uwais) goes undercover to infiltrate an organised crime ring. Despite astonishing action set-pieces, the story is over-complicated and while fans of the first film will be pleased, casual viewers will be exhausted by the end of 150 minutes.

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.
