Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
  • 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.

Deliver Us from Evil

Deliver Us from Evil
  • 2 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Scott Derrickson
  • Cast: Eric Bana, Édgar Ramírez, Olivia Munn

Sarchie (Bana) is an NYPD cop turned demonologist; he and partner Butler (McHale) investigate a series of crimes which reveal a malevolent presence. Despite a decent performance from Bana and some skilful effects it's preachy, grisly and stupid, with heavy-handed symbolism, a confusing storyline and all the nuance and balance of Fox News.

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.

The Expendables 3

The Expendables 3
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 126 min
  • Directed by: Patrick Hughes
  • Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford, Wesley Snipes, Antonio Banderas

Mercenary Barney Ross (Stallone) goes up against colleague-gone-rogue Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), a ruthless arms dealer. The action is fine, and the interplay between the somewhat ageing stars remains the film's biggest asset, but a lazy script, watered-down violence and general lack of risk-taking make for predictable viewing.

  • 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.

  • Directed by: Damon Beesley, Iain Morris
  • 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.

  • US
  • 89 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return

Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return
  • 2 stars

  • US
  • 88 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Finn/Dan St Pierre
  • Cast: Voices of Lea Michele, Hugh Dancy, Patrick Stewart, Jim Belushi, Kelsey Grammer, Dan Aykroyd, Martin Short

Dorothy (Michele) finds herself back in Oz on a mission to save it from the evil Jester (Short). A cheerless and cynical cash-grab, riding on the coattails of previous and far better Oz adaptations, with cheap-looking animation, lazy voice work, weak humour, a dreary, two-dimensional story, and a soundtrack full of Bryan Adams.

  • Directed by: Roberts Gannaway
  • Cast: Dane Cook, Ed Harris, Julie Bowen

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.
