13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
  • 2016
  • US
  • 144 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber

Dramatic retelling of the 2012 attack by Islamic militants on US diplomats in Benghazi. Good actors are wasted in this worthless extended Republican Party election broadcast, which eschews nuance, interest in non-Americans, respect for women and basic humanity in favour of shaky camerawork, jingoism, unbridled misogyny and explosions.

The Big Short
  • 2015

  • 22/01/2016
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam McKay
  • Written by: Michael Lewis, Adam McKay, Charles Randolph
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Karen Gillan, Brad Pitt

In the middle of the biggest property boom in American history, a group of financial experts bets that it's all about to collapse. A righteous, angry call to arms dolled up with satirical absurdity, irony, montage, knowing cinematic and pop culture references, snappy dialogue and smoking hot performances from an astonishing cast.

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag
  • 2015
  • Spain
  • 94 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Enrique Gato
  • Cast: Dani Rovira, Michelle Jenner, Carme Calvell

When villainous energy magnate Richard Carson questions the validity of the original moon landing, the race is on for NASA to return to the moon and stop Carson rewriting history. Despite a promising theme, this lame CG adventure is lacking in laughs, ideas or charm and just about scrapes by on good intentions.

Daddy's Home

Daddy's Home
  • 2015
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini

Brad (Ferrell) lives with new wife Sarah (Cardellini) and is bonding with her kids when her unreliable ex-husband Dusty (Wahlberg) barges into the picture, wanting her back. A good premise quickly turns crass and unfunny; Cardellini is wasted in an underwritten role and a single, lazy, sexist joke is spread over 96 forgettable minutes.

Dad's Army

Dad's Army
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 60 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Written by: David Croft, Hamish McColl, Jimmy Perry
  • Cast: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson, Blake Harrison, Tom Courtenay, Daniel Mays, Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea find a German spy in their midst – don't panic, indeed. Faithful but strangely pointless recreation of the classic sitcom, in which fine actors like Jones, Nighy, Gambon etc only succeed in being inferior imitations of the originals. Like the characters themselves, brave but ultimately foolhardy.

  • US
  • 119 min

  • Directed by: Tom Hooper
  • Written by: David Ebershoff, Lucinda Coxon
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Amber Heard, Alicia Vikander

Copenhagen painter Einar Wegener (Redmayne) has a loving marriage with fellow artist Gerda (Vikander), who encourages him to don women's clothes, prompting his realisation that he wants to become a woman. Touching and dignified real-life tale of 1930s transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, although at times it suffers from its own sumptuous respectability.

  • US
  • 102 min

  • Directed by: Dan Mazer
  • Written by: John Phillips
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch

Recently widowed (and aptly-named) Dick (De Niro) collars his straight-arrow grandson Jason (Efron) to drive him to Florida so he can get laid. Cruel, lazily scripted and spineless effort from British director Mazer, which tries and fails to redeem its relentlessly crass gags with an unconvincing sweet-natured ending.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Written by: Darren Lemke, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, R Stine
  • Cast: Jack Black, Amy Ryan, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush,

Teenager Zach (Minnette) develops a crush on his home-schooled neighbour Hannah (Rush), whose mysterious father (Black) keeps her locked up. This greatest-hits adaptation of RL Stine's horror stories unleashing a host of fan-favourite monsters instead of focusing on just one; it's pacey and enjoyable with Black on fine comic form, and the teen trio are likeable.

How To Be Single
  • 2016
  • US
  • Directed by: Christian Ditter
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, Rebel Wilson

Comedy about life and love, set in New York City. It's not a classic NYC romcom though: it's about learning how to be single.

  • Directed by: Nicholas Hytner
  • Written by: Alan Bennett
  • Cast: Maggie Smith, Alex Jennings, Dominic Cooper, James Corden

Writer Alan Bennett (Jennings, uncanny) allows cantankerous drifter Miss Shepherd (Smith) to make his Camden Town driveway her home for 15 years. Bennett's screenplay of this 'autobiopic' is a delight, showing how human kindness can be hilariously begrudging, but some of its conceits can be distracting.

Point Break
  • 2015
  • US
  • 114 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ericson Core
  • Cast: Luke Bracey, Ray Winstone, Edgar Ramirez

Adrenaline junkie Johnny (Bracey) joins the FBI and is put on the trail of the Robin Hood-ish Bodhi (Ramirez) and his gang of stunt-performing merry men. Pointless remake of Bigelow's fondly-remembered 1991 original, with neither subtext nor characterisation, and stunts that resemble adverts for energy drinks.

  • Directed by: Tim Story
  • Written by: Greg Coolidge, Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi
  • Cast: Olivia Munn, Kevin Hart, Ice Cube

Surly Atlanta cop James (Cube) takes his bumbling soon-to-be brother-in-law Ben to Miami on the trail of drug dealers. Munn is appealing as a no-nonsense cop but it's all painfully lazy and complacent, and not nearly as funny as it thinks it is.

  • Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Michael B. Jordan, Tessa Thompson

Adonis (Jordan) is the illegitimate son of deceased boxing legend Apollo Creed, who acquires a coach and father figure in the shape of Rocky Balboa (oh come on, you know who). Coogler injects heart, wit and personality into a stirring revival, with beautifully choreographed fights and real poignancy.

Joy, known as Ma (Larson), has been held captive in a shed for seven years by a man referred to as Old Nick (Bridgers). Her five year old son Jack (Tremblay) has never known anywhere else. Their journey to freedom is gripping and emotionally fraught, and Tremblay and Larson are excellent.

  • Cast: Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton

McCarthy's tale of how the Boston Globe's investigation team unearthed cases of sexual abuse and cover-ups within the Catholic church is up there with All the President's Men, with a fine cast (Keaton, McAdams, Ruffalo, Tucci) serving a nuanced, complex script: no one, except the victims, is entirely blameless. Remarkable.

  • Cast: John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he? Fans can rejoice: Episode VII is sensational and surprisingly emotional, with a finely-crafted script and effects that never overpower the performances. Star Wars is back in a big way.

  • Written by: John McNamara, Bruce Cook
  • Cast: Elle Fanning, Bryan Cranston, Diane Lane

Screenwriter Dalton Trumbo (Cranston) finds his career coming to a sudden end when he is blacklisted and accused of being a communist. McNamara’s breezy screenplay condenses complex events and an eventful life into a trim, accessible feature, and Cranston is compelling. Informative and entertaining.
