  • Directed by: John Erick Dowdle
  • Cast: Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge, Perdita Weeks

When Archaeologist/adventurer Scarlett (Weeks) searches the Paris Catacombs for the Philosopher's Stone, she and fellow adventurers Benji (Hodge) and George (Feldman) find themselves haunted by supernatural goings-on. Pacy and suitably creepy horror enlivened by strong work from Weeks and Feldman, although the found footage element could have been dropped.

  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Rowan Joffe
  • Cast: Nicole Kidman, Colin Firth, Mark Strong

Christine (Kidman) is an amnesiac, unable to recall her marriage to husband Ben (Firth) and the incident which caused her amnesia in the first place; can neuropsychologist Dr Nash (Strong) help? Stylish but superficial thriller which makes for an entertaining evening's viewing, but – like Christine – you may not remember much the next day.

The Boxtrolls

The Boxtrolls
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 97 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Graham Annable, Anthony Stacchi
  • Cast: Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Ben Kingsley, Elle Fanning, Toni Collette, Jared Harris, Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, Richard Ayoade, Tracy Morgan

Eggs (Hempstead-Wright) lives underground with a family of Boxtrolls, marginalised creatures who make their home from rubbish. But then the trolls are hunted by a group of exterminators, led by the grotesque Snatcher (Kingsley). Adventurous, intense and sometimes disturbing animated movie, with plenty to keep adults occupied; whether kids will respond is another question.

  • 4 stars

  • 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
  • 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: Phillip Noyce
  • Cast: Brenton Thwaites, Jeff Bridges, Meryl Streep

In a bland, conformist future, one person – the Giver (Bridges) – retains the collective memory of a time before conformity, and it's time for a replacement (Thwaites). Despite good work from Bridges and Streep, it's odd that a story which prizes individuality should make for such a formulaic teen movie.

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.

Indian patriarch Papa (Puri) decides to open a restaurant in the French countryside, directly opposite a Michelin-starred joint run by Madame Mallory (Mirren); cue romantic complications between son Hassan (Dayal) and Mallory's sous-chef Marguerite (Le Bon). Mirren's imperiousness almost redeems it, but an undercooked third act makes for an insipid conclusion.

  • 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.

  • Cast: Simon Bird, James Buckley, Joe Thomas, Blake Harrison

Eternal teenagers Will, Simon, Neil and Jay head to Australia in pursuit of Jay's lovely ex, Jane (Bewley). Heaving with bad-taste humour, it manages to feel less tired than the first film thanks to energetic direction, honed performances and some truly spectacular stupidity.

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Luke Greenfield

  • 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.

  • 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.

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.

During the 1984-84 UK miners' strike, a group of young lesbian and gay activists travel from London to Wales to help a mining community in trouble. Unashamedly fizzy and cheering take on a true story about two groups who bonded together against small-mindedness and vile tabloid headlines.

Affable Oxford undergraduate Miles (Irons) is courted by the Riot Club, an exclusive university society devoted to hedonism, but then a Club dinner in the back room of a pub becomes increasingly vile. Claflin is outstanding as the villainous Alistair, and Scherfig's film, in its portrayal of dangerously antisocial upper class twits, is appropriately discomforting and immersive.

Unintentionally amusing adaptation of Lawrence Block's novel, with a half-hearted performance from Neeson and hackneyed dialogue; an absurd mix of deadly serious thriller and Cop and a Half-style buddy movie.

This cleverly targeted family romp set in the world of videogames marks a step up both commercially and artistically for the non-Pixar side of Disney animation. The script is brilliantly witty; the visuals sweep, swoop and sparkle; and the message about flawed individuals finding their own way to be heroes is a kindly one, intelligently expressed.
