Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Joss Whedon
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Jeremy Renner, James Spader, Samuel L. Jackson

Ultron, an artificial intelligence created by Tony Stark (Downey Jr) to keep the peace, goes rogue and decides to kill off the Avengers. Barely logical but impressively entertaining superhero fun; Johansson and Olsen are central to the action and Whedon's script is strong, snappy and irreverent, but it doesn't have much emotional impact.

Child 44

Child 44
  • 2015
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Richard Price/Tom Rob Smith
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman

Leo (Hardy) is a military policeman in the Stalin-era Soviet Union, tasked with investigating a series of child killings that are unacknowledged by the state. Hardy and Rapace lead an excellent cast, and although it packs in a little too much it's a pleasingly pulpy thriller.

A Little Chaos

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Alan Rickman
  • Cast: Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Stanley Tucci

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

Woman in Gold

Woman in Gold
  • 2015
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Curtis
  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Andrew Garfield, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl

Maria (Mirren), an Austrian woman who escaped her homeland before WW II, teams up with lawyer Randol (Reynolds) in a fight to retrieve paintings stolen by the Nazis. Mirren and Reynolds have pleasing chemistry but Curtis fails to give this true story a clear direction or emotional impact.
