Before I Go To Sleep

Before I Go to Sleep
  • 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

  • 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.

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).

  • 122 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lasse Hallström
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Om Puri, Manish Dayal

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.

Let's Be Cops

  • US
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Luke Greenfield
  • Written by: Luke Greenfield, Nicholas Thomas
  • 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.

  • 89 min

  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Written by: Stephen Beresford
  • Cast: Bill Nighy, Dominic West, Andrew Scott

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.

  • Cast: Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz, Rob Corddry

Happily married Annie (Diaz) and Jay (Segel) try to spice up their sex life by recording it on his iPad, but an accidental sync sends the film to several other devices; charmless slapstick ensues, with an interesting premise spoiled by a fumbled and decidedly old-fashioned treatment.

  • 2014
  • US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Tim Story
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Gabrielle Union, Wendi McLendon-Covey

The characters from the 2012 travel to Las Vegas for a wedding, where low-rent Hangover-style shenanigans ensue. Much of the energy comes from pint-sized motormouth Hart, who as best man Cedric has most of the (few) laughs; ultimately there are just too many characters, but at least it's shorter than the first movie.

  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens, David Harbour

Drug dealer Kenny Kristo (Stevens)'s wife has been kidnapped, with unfortunate consequences, and he hires alcoholic private eye Matt Scudder (Neeson) to find out who did it. 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.
