  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 146 min
  • 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.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Nick Cassavetes
  • Written by: Melissa Stack
  • Cast: Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Kate Upton, Taylor Kinney, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Lisa Maffia, Nicki Minaj

When lawyer Carly (Diaz) falls for Mark (Coster-Waldau), he seems too good to be true. He is: he's already married to Kate (Mann), and is having another affair with Amber (Upton). Cassavetes' film squanders its subversive wronged-women-seek-revenge premise in clichés, weak gags and an all-round lack of sass.

  • 2014
  • US/France
  • 103 min
  • 15
  • 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.

  • Written by: Don Rhymer, Carlos Saldanha

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.

In the fifth of the franchise, the crew enters a TV dance competition in the hope of landing a deal, but must resist the temptations of Las Vegas. Never mind the undercooked romance and the thin supporting stories – the dancing is as brilliant as ever.

Gateshead's Metrocentre is the largest shopping centre in the UK, with a mind-bending two million square feet of retail floor area, so no wonder its Odeon is correspondingly giant-sized, with 17 screens including an IMAX. Each screen has wheelchair spaces and an infrared sound system is in place for customers with hearing difficulties. All screens also offer audio description and subtitling.

The cinema offers over 18s the Gallery, a licensed bar with unlimited snacks and soft drinks, and it's big enough to have its own cafe and Ambar bar and lounge; drinks purchased in Ambar can be taken into the auditorium. There are regular film quiz nights on Thursday evenings from 8pm, and both the cafe and bar have free wi-fi.

Metrocentre itself is big enough to have its own chapel, but with over 340 stores and food and drink outlets ranging from Pizza Hut to a cocktail bar, there are plenty of places to relax. As far as getting there is concerned, the centre has not only its own bus station (with a shuttle bus service taking 15 minutes from the centre of Newcastle) but its own train station. There is ample parking.
