  • Cast: Jack O'Connell, Sam Reid, Sean Harris

Belfast, 1971: Gary (O'Connell) is a young British soldier who, on his first night patrol, gets separated from his unit and finds himself wandering the backstreets. O'Connell is marvellous as the luckless soldier but the complex power-play between the IRA, loyalist paramilitaries and the British Army make for more than just a thriller.

The Best of Me

  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Michael Hoffman
  • Cast: James Marsden, Michelle Monaghan, Liana Liberato

Dawson (Marsden), an insanely handsome, inexplicably single oil rig worker who's also got hidden depths (he reads Stephen Hawking), has pined for his high-school girlfriend (Monaghan) for 21 years. Then they meet. An even-more-listless-than-usual Nicholas Sparks adaptation with the button-pushing ability of a blind man and an ending of industrial-strength stupidity.

Dolphin Tale 2
  • 2 stars
  • 2014

  • Directed by: Charles Martin Smith
  • Cast: Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd, Nathan Gamble

Winter, the bottlenose dolphin with the prosthetic tail, needs a friend, and teenager Sawyer (Gamble), kindly mom Lorraine (Judd) and moody doctor Clay (Connick Jr) have to find one. An overqualified cast are wasted in this colourless true-life story, set firmly in the cinematic tradition of tiresome animal-related do-gooding.

Dracula Untold
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US

  • Directed by: Gary Shore
  • Cast: Luke Evans, Charles Dance, Sarah Gadon

In this Dracula origin story, Vlad III, Prince of Wallachia (Evans), is a warrior and a family man, who sells his soul to protect his people from the Turkish hordes. There's good work from Evans and Gadon and a show-stopping performance from Dance (under layers of prosthetics), but overall it's po-faced and humourless.

  • 2014

  • 131 min

  • Directed by: Antoine Fuqua
  • Cast: Denzel Washington, Marton Csokas, ChloĆ« Grace Moretz

Obsessive-compulsive loner McCall (Washington) befriends Teri (Moretz), a teenage Russian prostitute; when her pimp hospitalises her, he decides to even things up a bit. Nominally derived from the 80s Edward Woodward TV series, it's really just a relentless, brutal, unsubtle thriller, with Washington an effective killing machine and Fuqua expertly cranking up the tension.

  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr, Robert Duvall, Vera Farmiga

When hotshot defence lawyer Hank Palmer (Downey Jr) goes home to small-town Indiana for his mother's funeral, he finds himself defending his crotchety dad (Duvall), the town judge, on a murder charge. A corny, shamelessly manipulative and overlong blend of Grisham-style thriller and old-fashioned tale of family reconciliation, it's still able mainstream entertainment.

  • 150 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Mike Leigh
  • Cast: Timothy Spall, Paul Jesson, Dorothy Atkinson

Portrait of the last 25 years of the life of painter Joseph Mallord William Turner (Spall). A work of great beauty, wit and poignancy, presenting the artist as unapologetically gruff but sympathetic and spectacularly eccentric. Leigh's latest demonstrates a command of his craft to rival that of his subject.

  • 2 stars
  • 2014

  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Jane Fonda

When Judd (Bateman)'s father dies, he goes home to to sit Shiva with mother Hilary (Fonda), sister Wendy (Fey) and brother Phillip (Driver). Though some of the family dynamics ring true, the strokes are so broad that comedy and drama are equally dulled; in comparison to something like Jason Reitman's Young Adult, it's all too safe and predictable.
