Black Sea

Black Sea
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 115 min
  • Directed by: Kevin Macdonald
  • Cast: Jude Law, Scoot McNairy, Karl Davies, Konstantin Khabensky

Robinson (Law) is a Scottish former submarine captain who leads a rag-tag crew of engineers to salvage a downed Russian sub laden with Nazi gold. Law is a commanding presence (he nails the Aberdeen accent) and a superb supporting cast, plus impressive cinematography, make for a powerfully claustrophobic atmosphere.

Dumb and Dumber To

Dumb and Dumber To
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 109 min
  • Directed by: Bobby Farrelly, Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Jim Carrey, Jeff Daniels

Twenty years after the original movie, Harry (Daniels) and Lloyd (Carrey) go on a road trip to find Harry's daughter Penny (Melvin). Despite some simple and effective gags the plot is too contrived with not enough payoff, and the Farrellys have retained their signature bad taste but left out the heart.

Frozen
  • 4 stars

  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Buck
  • Cast: Voices of Kristen Bell, Josh Gad, Idina Menzel

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.

Get Santa

Get Santa
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/US
  • 102 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Christopher Smith
  • Cast: Rafe Spall, Jim Broadbent, Warwick Davis

When Santa (Broadbent) crashes his sleigh just outside London and gets arrested, it's up to ex-con Steve (Spall) and his young son Tom (Connor) to organise a jailbreak and save Christmas. Broadbent and Spall are excellent and Scanlan is marvellous as a Trunchbull-like prison officer. An imaginative, madcap and sometimes macabre family movie.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US/New Zealand
  • 144 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peter Jackson
  • Written by: Fran Walsh (screenplay), Philippa Boyens (screenplay), Peter Jackson (screenplay), Guillermo del Toro (screenplay), J. R. R. Tolkien (novel)
  • Cast: Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, Benedict Cumberbatch, Graham McTavish, Ken Stott, Hugo Weaving, James Nesbitt, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Billy Connolly, Evangeline Lilly, Christopher Lee, Cate Blanchett, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood

Smaug's on the rampage, Thorin is consumed with greed and war breaks out. The final instalment of Jackson's Middle-earth adventures features moments of spirited action and some terrific performances, but like the other Hobbit films it pales in comparison to the episodes of the previous trilogy.

When Nick (Bateman), Dale (Day) and Kurt (Sudeikis) are conned by an unscrupulous tycoon (Waltz), they plot to kidnap his unctuous son (Pine). Limp sequel to the so-so original, with even the outtakes barely raising a smile.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 125 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Francis Lawrence
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore

Carving the final book in the Hunger Games series into two movies pays off, giving rhythm to a story that might otherwise have felt rushed. Action and politics are confidently balanced, Sutherland is deliciously vile as ever, Hutcherson is finally given something interesting to do and while Lawrence is rightly the star, the older actors are a pleasure.

The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK/USA
  • 113 min
  • Directed by: Morten Tyldum
  • Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode

Historical drama about Alan Turing (Cumberbatch), father of modern computer science; how he and a team of codebreakers figured out how to beat the German Enigma machine during WWII, and his tragically early death. Triumphant slice of British heritage drama, with great emotional force and a touching performance from Cumberbatch.

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb

Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.

  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguins of Madagascar
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of Europe's Most Wanted.

  • US
  • 102 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Theodore Melfi
  • Cast: Bill Murray, Melissa McCarthy, Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Chris O'Dowd

Vincent (Murray) is a war hero turned lonely, misanthropic drunkard, who becomes a comically inappropriate babysitter to neighbour Oliver (Lieberher). Murray and Lieberher are a fine double act, Watts is a hoot as a pregnant Eastern European prostitute/pole-dancer, and despite a conventionally tear-jerking finale it's mostly scrappy and likable.

  • 76 min

  • Directed by: Steve Loter
  • Cast: Voices of: Mae Whitman, Megan Hilty, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, Anjelica Huston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rosario Dawson, Mel B

When Tink's friend Fawn (Goodwin) befriends a mysterious creature in the woods, scout fairy Nyx (Dawson) decides to capture it before it can do any damage. The animation is agile and colourful and Goodwin delivers a likable central performance; it could have been funnier, but otherwise a charming addition to the franchise.
