Pathology (18) 94min •• When new intern Ted (Milo Ventimiglia) stumbles across a very nasty little secret at a university hospital in Philadelphia, he knows he has to act. The trouble is that the future of his career revolves around him turning a blind eye. Pedestrian, clichéd TV-inspired horror thriller (ER and CSI should sue). Rent Lars von Trier’s The Kingdom TV series instead. Out now on general release.
Deception (15) 107min •• Another year another chronic thriller starring Ewan McGregor. In this one he plays accountant Jonathan who is bored and lonely until he meets lawyer Wyatt (Hugh Jackman). Wyatt introduces him to the dark pleasures of a sex club called The List (sadly no relation) but Jonathan is soon over his head when he becomes the prime suspect in the disappearance of a mysterious young lady (Michelle Williams). Turgid sub-Hitchcockian nonsense. General release from Fri 25 Apr.
Iron Man (12A) 125min (unable to review at press time) Actor/director Jon Elf Favreau’s big screen adaptation of Stan Lee, Don Heck, Larry Lieber and Jack Kirby’s superhero comic series starring Robert Downey Jr. Reviewed next issue. General release from Fri 2 May.
