American Sniper

American Sniper
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 134 min
  • Directed by: Clint Eastwood
  • Cast: Bradley Cooper, Sienna Miller, Jake McDorman

Eastwood, noted for his kinship with the common soldier, is the ideal director for this true-life drama based on the autobiography of Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle (Cooper). Cooper continues to be impressive but the film unravels when it shows Kyle's home life, failing to engage with either marital or wider political issues.

Birdman

Birdman
  • 4 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 119 min
  • Directed by: Alejandro González Iñárritu
  • Cast: Michael Keaton, Emma Stone, Edward Norton, Andrea Riseborough, Zach Galifianakis, Naomi Watts, Amy Ryan

Riggan Thompson (Keaton) played Birdman, a popular Hollywood superhero, but that was a while ago and he's having trouble getting the second art of his career started. A stellar cast (Norton, Watts, Stone) and fluid script prop up an award-worthy turn from Keaton, all mesmerisingly photographed by Lubezki. Highly imaginative.

Into the Woods

Into the Woods
  • 3 stars
  • 2014
  • US
  • 124 min
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Johnny Depp

Disney's long-in-the-making adaptation of Sondheim and Lapine's musical, in which a clutch of fairytale characters help a baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt) lift a curse which prevents them from having a baby. Despite some great moments, the story drags; if you're a fan it's likely to please, but it won't win anyone else over.

Taken 3

Taken 3
  • 2 stars
  • 2015
  • US
  • Directed by: Olivier Megaton
  • Written by: Luc Besson, Robert Mark Kamen
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Maggie Grace, Forest Whitaker

Bryan Mills (Neeson), ex-CIA operative, arrives at his apartment to find his ex-wife (Janssen) dead and himself framed for the crime. The third instalment of this increasingly creaky franchise feels as dozy as a pensioner in the midday sun; the fights and pile-ups are fine, but the characters are almost an afterthought.

Testament of Youth

Testament of Youth
  • 3 stars
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 129 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Kent
  • Cast: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington, Taron Egerton

Vera (Vikander) is a wilful and intelligent English girl; when her friend Victor (Morgan), fiancé Roland (Harington) and brother Edward (Egerton) go off to fight in WW I, she follows them to be a nurse. Sparing and respectful adaptation of Brittain's 1933 memoir; tasteful rather than innovative, it still packs a punch.

The Theory of Everything

  • 123 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones, Tom Prior

Stephen Hawking (Redmayne) and Jane Wilde (Jones) lock eyes at a university party, but their budding love affair is given a blow by his diagnosis of motor neurone disease. Redmayne is astonishingly good and Jones inspires sympathy and admiration, but the script is never really convincing.
