The Yes Men Fix The World
(12A) 86min ●●●●
Prankster duo Mike Bonanno and Andy Bichlbaum continue the work they started in 2004’s The Yes Men. This time they take the capitalist fat cats and expose the people profiting from Hurricane Katrina and the folk behind the Bhopal disaster who have never been prosecuted. Your blood will boil, when you’re not laughing.

Another year another enjoyable Robert Rodriguez children’s adventure film. Set in the suburb of Black Falls, where all the houses look the same and everyone works for Black Box Unlimited Worldwide Industries Incorporated, whose Black Box is the ultimate communication gadget that’s sweeping the nation. 11-year-old Toe Thompson (Jimmy Bennett) doesn’t care about any of that until one day a mysterious rainbow-coloured rock falls from the sky and hits him in the head. Soon the neighbourhood is swarming with tiny spaceships, crocodile armies and much more. Slyly anti-corporate kiddie caper with an able cast (including William H Macy and James Spader) and fun digital effects.
General release from Fri 21 Aug.
