  • 1h 55min

  • Directed by: Doug Liman
  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, Lola Kirke

Barry Seal (Cruise) is a once hotshot pilot turned family man, bored of life in commercial air travel, but then a mysterious man (Gleeson) turns up with an offer of undercover CIA work. It’s a hoot with an edge, as Barry gets more embroiled with CIA-sponsored terrorism; good to see Cruise thriving outside his usual zone.

Annabelle: Creation

Annabelle: Creation
  • 2017
  • Directed by: David F Sandberg
  • Written by: Gary Dauberman
  • Cast: Miranda Otto, Philippa Coulthard, Stephanie Sigman

When dollmaker Samuel (LaPaglia) and his wife Esther (Otto) open their creaking home to a group of orphans, little do they know that their late daughter’s bedroom contains a demonic doll. Routine horror with a flimsy narrative driven by Samuel and Esther’s increasingly poor decisions; this fourth film in the franchise is one too many.

Atomic Blonde

Atomic Blonde
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Charlize Theron, James McAvoy, John Goodman, Sofia Boutella,

Lorraine Broughton (Theron) is an MI6 agent tasked with finding a list of double-crossing agents, aided by dodgy fellow spy David (McAvoy) as she kicks the arses of an army of foes in 1989 Berlin. Basically a showcase for Theron’s sparring ability and withering looks, it features authentically exhausting fights and is a shamelessly derivative but fun actioner.

  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 1h 29min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower
  • 2017
  • Directed by: Nikolaj Arcel
  • Cast: Katheryn Winnick, Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey

Gunslinger Roland (Elba) engages the help of New York teenager Jake (Taylor) in a battle to save the titular tower from the menacing Man in Black (McConaughey). Writer-director Arcel turns King’s dark book into a disappointing YA adventure with little tension or gravitas, and Elba’s charm is offset by McConaughey’s unintentionally comical impersonation of Viggo Mortensen.

  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin

Gru (Carell) and new wife and fellow agent Lucy (Wiig) are ensconced with their adorable adopted daughters when supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) decides to take revenge on Hollywood for neglecting him. It’s all a bit familiar but it skilfully balances kid and adult appeal with its madcap approach and embarrassment of mischievous energy.

Detroit
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Kathryn Bigelow
  • Cast: John Boyega, Anthony Mackie, Algee Smith, Will Poulter

In Detroit, 1967, during city-wide rioting, armed police descend on the Algiers Motel and subject innocent partygoers to a vicious all-night interrogation. Bald, confrontational, uncomfortable filmmaking which uses an impressive ensemble (Boyega, Poulter, Mitchell, Mackie) to bring home the force of state-sanctioned hatred and racism.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tony Leondis
  • Cast: T. J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Jennifer Coolidge, Jake T. Austin, Christina Aguilera, Sofia Vergara, Patrick Stewart

Gene (Miller) is a ‘meh’ emoji living in Textopolis who can’t help displaying mixed emotions. Targeted for deletion, he goes on the run with perky Hi-5 (Corden) and hacker Jailbreak (Faris). A combination of product placement, ingratiating voice work and barrel-scraping studio desperation, it’s a witless and blandly generic journey of self-discovery.

  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 36min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Stella Meghie
  • Cast: Amandla Stenberg, Nick Robinson, Anika Noni Rose

Maddy (Stenberg) is a funny, intelligent and beautiful 18-year-old, confined to her home by a severe immune deficiency disease; when smouldering Olly (Robinson) moves in next door, she is smitten with him. What begins as an amiable melodrama takes a dark turn in a rushed, implausible and unpleasant denouement involving Maddy’s illness and her mother.

Girls Trip

  • Directed by: Malcolm D Lee
  • Cast: Regina Hall, Queen Latifah, Jada Pinkett Smith

Four lifelong friends travel to New Orleans for the annual Essence Festival and rediscover their wild sides. The fact that peeing on a crowd of partygoers is depicted as a show of female solidarity and mega dance-offs are the way to recover from hallucinogenic absinthe freak-outs makes this an indecently refreshing tonic of a film.

  • US

  • Directed by: Patrick Hughes
  • Written by: Tom O'Connor
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson, Elodie Yung, Salma Hayek

Michael Bryce (Reynolds) is an elite bodyguard tasked with transporting imprisoned assassin Darius Kincaid (Jackson) to the Hague, to testify against a Russian warlord. Hilarious mismatched buddy hi-jinks disappointingly fail to ensue. Hayek has a nice role as Kincaid’s very sweary wife, though.

  • Directed by: Steven Soderbergh
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Adam Driver, Seth MacFarlane, Riley Keough, Katie Holmes, Daniel Craig

Jimmy (Tatum), his brother Clyde (Driver) and sister Mellie (Keough) enlist the help of redneck jailbird and explosives expert Joe Bang (Craig) to rob the Charlotte Motor Speedway. Soderbergh’s latest comedy heist movie is perhaps his best, with a great cast, a satisfying plot and witty dialogue.

Moana
  • 2016
  • US
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
  • 2017
  • Canada/US/South Korea
  • PG
  • Directed by: Cal Brunker
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph

In this inexplicable sequel to the underwhelming 2014 original, Surly Squirrel (Arnett) teams up with idealistic Andie (Heigl) and Precious (Rudolph) to save their park from the Mayor (Moynihan). The characters are unappealing and the script relies on uninspired action and flat non-jokes. At least there’s no ‘Gangnam Style’ this time.

Terminator 2: Judgement Day
  • 1991
  • US
  • 2h 17min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Cameron
  • Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Edward Furlong

In a reprogrammed role that said much about his changed image since the first movie, Arnie becomes the underdog fighting to protect mother and child from another more advanced cyborg. With an element of uncontrived human compassion lurking throughout the gloriously expensive action sequences, as Schwarzenegger's cyborg develops human feelings, this is more than just a $100 million fairground ride.
