Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6
  • 2014
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Williams, Don Hall
  • Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, T. J. Miller, Daniel Henney, Maya Rudolph

Hiro (Potter) is a 14 year old robotics genius who, after a family tragedy, teams up with inflatable robot Baymax (Adsit) to become crimefighting superheroes. This Disney adaptation of a Marvel comic deals with dark themes of loss and grief but also has plenty of heart and some big laughs, especially from Adsit.

Chappie

Chappie
  • 2015
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Neill Blomkamp
  • Cast: Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver

Weapons developer Deon (Patel) reprogrammes the titular police robot into self-awareness, but then the robot's kidnapped (by Yolandi and Ninja of Die Antwoord) as part of an underworld scheme. Yolandi is believable but Ninja is awful, and despite dynamic action sequences the approach to big themes is simplistic and badly mishandled.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • U
  • Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
  • Cast: Lily James, Richard Madden, Cate Blanchett, Helena Bonham Carter, Holliday Grainger, Sophie McShera, Stellan Skarsgård, Nonso Anozie, Derek Jacobi, Hayley Atwell, Ben Chaplin

Cinderella (James) loses her parents and is left with stepmother Lady Tremaine (Blanchett) and cruel stepsisters (McShera and Grainger); but soon enough, she's off to the ball. Weitz's crafty script has enough surreal touches to keep you interested and the result, while hardly a new take on the story, is still a pleasant surprise.

Insurgent
  • 2015
  • US
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Schwentke
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and the remnants of the Dauntless race tirelessly hither and thither in part 2 of the Divergent series. Woodley does very well with what she's given, but the other parts are underwritten and it all feels like a build-up to the extended finale of this bewildering and hardly essential franchise.

  • 2013/2015

Fast & Furious 7

Furious 7
  • 2015
  • US
  • 140 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: James Wan
  • Written by: Chris Morgan
  • Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Lucas Black, Jason Statham

Deckard (Statham) is a Special Forces assassin determined to get revenge on the team after his brother has been left in a coma. With the shark rapidly receding in the wake of the franchise's waterskis, the latest instalment is insane but has a puppyish desperation to please, and doesn't take itself too seriously.

Focus

  • 104 min

  • Directed by: Glenn Ficarra/John Requa
  • Cast: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro

Nicky (Smith) is a lifelong con man who takes wannabe swindler Jess (Robbie) under his wing, only to fall for her; dull romantic twists and not-very-ingenious stings ensue. The two stars have almost no chemistry and the film's greatest scam is that it fools you into thinking it's going to amount to more than it does.

Get Hard

Get Hard
  • 2014
  • US
  • 15
  • Directed by: Etan Cohen
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie

Hedge fund exec James (Ferrell) is to be sent to prison for fraud, so he persuades law-abiding car wash owner Darnell (Hart) to teach him how to survive in prison, on the grounds that Darnell is black. If you can stand lots of jokes about prison rape, it's occasionally brilliant, if somewhat uneven.

The Gunman

  • 2015
  • Spain/UK/France
  • 115 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Pierre Morel
  • Cast: Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Javier Bardem

Jim Terrier (Penn) is a hired assassin who undertakes a political hit; years later he becomes a target, and must find who wants him dead. Risible thriller with a clichéd script that wastes good actors (Bardem, Rylance, Penn himself) in a clumsy attempt to reinvent its star and producer as an action hero.

  • Cast: Rihanna, Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez, Steve Martin

Oh (Parsons) is part of an alien race who've colonised Earth by decanting humans to amusement parks in Australia, but he's forced to team up with lost little girl Tip (Rihanna). A confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

The Penguins of Madagascar

The Penguins of Madagascar
  • 2014
  • US
  • 92 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Darnell, Simon J. Smith
  • Cast: Tom McGrath, Chris Miller, John DiMaggio, Christopher Knights, Benedict Cumberbatch, John Malkovich, Ken Jeong, Annet Mahendru, Peter Stormare

The espionage-savvy penguins team up with an interspecies special forces group, to tangle with octopus/scientist Dr Octavius Brine (Malkovich). The knockabout style offers few chances for genuine drama and the result is a lighthearted, frenetic but rather unimaginative romp, a step down from the psychedelic wit of Europe's Most Wanted.

  • 2015

  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Written by: Brad Ingelsby
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Genesis Rodriguez, Joel Kinnaman

Jimmy (Neeson), a lonely alcoholic and associate of gangster Shawn Maguire (Harris), is broken by regret for his sins, but when Maguire puts out a hit on Jimmy's son Michael (Kinnaman), we know what'll happen: Liam Kicks Ass. Solid, watchable actioner with fine work from Neeson and Kinnaman; no classic but satisfactory.

The Seventh Son

The Seventh Son
  • 2013
  • UK/US
  • Directed by: Sergey Bodrov
  • Cast: Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges

Tom Ward (Barnes), the seventh son of a seventh son, becomes apprentice to the last of the 'spooks', Master Gregory (Bridges), with the aim of eradicating supernatural forces. Enjoyable hokum, with Moore wonderfully bitchy and Bridges unleashing Brian Blessed-like levels of ham. To be treasured by connoisseurs of truly bad film.

  • Cast: Antonio Banderas, Clancy Brown, Tom Kenny

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.

  • Directed by: Steve Loter
  • Cast: Voices of: Mae Whitman, Megan Hilty, Lucy Liu, Raven-Symoné, Anjelica Huston, Ginnifer Goodwin, Rosario Dawson, Mel B

When Tink's friend Fawn (Goodwin) befriends a mysterious creature in the woods, scout fairy Nyx (Dawson) decides to capture it before it can do any damage. The animation is agile and colourful and Goodwin delivers a likable central performance; it could have been funnier, but otherwise a charming addition to the franchise.

  • 2014

  • Written by: Michael R. Perry
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick

Lonely factory worker Jerry (Reynolds) has regular conversations with his cat and dog, which take an odd turn when he kills a female co-worker. Satrapi's candy-coloured vision perfectly complements Perry's gleefully twisted script, and Reynolds (who voices all the animals) plays a blinder.

Nick Wild (Statham), a security expert working the backstreets of Vegas, gets a price on his head when he goes after a mobster for assaulting his friend Holly (Garcia-Lorido). Goldman's hard-bitten dialogue is laboured, the fight scenes are dull and it's a nasty mess all round.
