12 Strong

12 Strong
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Nicolai Fuglsig
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Peña, William Fichtner

US Army Captain Mitch Nelson (Hemsworth) is put in command of a small unit fighting its way on horseback to a Taliban stronghold. A strong cast and large-scale production don’t quite compensate for a John Wayne-esque story that offers gratifying triumphalism in place of difficult political questions.

All The Money In The World

All The Money In The World
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 13min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Michelle Williams, Christopher Plummer, Mark Wahlberg, Charlie Plummer

The story of the kidnapping of the grandson of miserly industrialist J Paul Getty (Plummer). Plummer, who was a last-minute replacement for the now-disgraced Kevin Spacey, brings understated gravitas and Williams is noble and credible as the kidnap victim’s mother Gail. A sometimes blood-boiling morality tale, pulled off by Scott with remarkable aplomb.

Coco

Coco
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lee Unkrich
  • Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Edward James Olmos

Coco (Rivera) is a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to be a musician, but his family disapproves. Then he steals a guitar from a mausoleum and finds himself in the Land of the Dead. An eye-popping mosaic of a kids’ movie which pays proper respect to Mexican folklore, its sincerity and creativity are ultimately winning.

The Commuter

The Commuter
  • 2018
  • US / UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Michael McCauley (Neeson) is made redundant one day. On the train home, the mysterious Joanna (Farmiga) makes him a cash offer to find someone. Neeson and Collet-Serra’s fourth collaboration is as generic as it sounds, with breathless action, numerous plot holes and a ludicrous story.

Darkest Hour

Darkest Hour
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 54min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Wright
  • Cast: Gary Oldman, Kristin Scott Thomas, Ben Mendlesohn, Ronald Pickup

May 1940: the situation in Europe is worsening, and Britain needs a new prime minister. The latest in a very long line of recent Churchill performances is by far the best: Oldman is virtually unrecognisable and attacks the part with relish, with Scott Thomas excellent as his wife Clemmie. It may veer into hero worship but it’s a confidently handled crowdpleaser.

Downsizing

Downsizing
  • 2017
  • US
  • 2h 15min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Alexander Payne
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christoph Waltz, Hong Chau, Kristen Wiig, Jason Sudeikis

When a Norwegian institute develops a successful process of human miniaturisation, people flock to take part so as to minimise the impact of humans on the planet. Mild-mannered comedy and gentle romance which looks beautiful but is sentimental and meandering.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Nick Park
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, Selina Griffiths, Johnny Vegas, Mark Williams, Gina Yashere, Simon Greenall

Gormless caveman Dug (Redmayne) and his clan are menaced by Bronze Age invader Lord Nooth (Hiddleston), until twinkle-toed defector Goona (Williams) joins them to help them unite. Deliciously daft prehistoric fun from Park and his team on top form, with winning human touches, plenty of sight gags and painful puns.

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 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

Insidious: The Last Key
  • 2018
  • 1h 43min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Robitel
  • Cast: Lin Shaye, Leigh Whannell, Angus Sampson

Parapsychologist Dr Elise Rainier (Shaye) faces her most fearsome and personal haunting yet – in her own family home. An unexpectedly moving fourth instalment features and excellent performance from the charismatic Shaye, and sensitive themes of silencing women and domestic abuse are well-handled.

  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale

Four high school teens in detention discover the magical board game Jumanji, now a video game, and after being sucked into it they become the avatars they’ve chosen. Crude but amusing sequel to the 1995 original, with Black having a ball as he gets in touch with his inner prom queen.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Maze Runner: The Death Cure
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Wes Ball
  • Cast: Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson

The final part of the trilogy sees Thomas (O’Brien) determined to rescue his fellow glader Minho (Lee) from the clutches of WCKD. Thomas is, as usual, the dead weight that stops these movies from taking off, while the treacherous but conflicted Teresa (Scodelario) is far more interesting. A so-so series winds to its so-so ending.

Molly's Game

Molly's Game
  • 2017
  • 2h 20min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Aaron Sorkin
  • Cast: Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner

Competitive skier Molly Bloom (Chastain) turns to running professional poker games after suffering a career-ending sports injury. Sorkin’s directorial debut features much of his crisp dialogue which Chastain and Elba manage to make sound natural; shame about the script’s dispiriting preoccupation with Molly’s daddy issues.

My Little Pony: The Movie
  • 2017

  • Directed by: Jayson Thiessen
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Kristin Chenoweth, Liev Schreiber

The Friendship Festival of Canterlot is disrupted by ruthless unicorn Tempest Shadow (Blunt), so Twilight Sparkle (Strong) and pals must embark on a rescue mission. It manages to showcase the brand without sacrificing every last ounce of soul, and is cute, simple and surefooted enough for its target audience, if not for anyone else.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

The Bellas are all struggling in the workplace after leaving college, so they get the old gang back together to tour European army bases. It plays out as an entertaining variety show mixed with an action thriller, with enough energy to deliver cheesy and diverting fun.

The Post
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 56min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Steven Spielberg
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Tom Hanks, Sarah Paulson

The story of how the Washington Post, led by its publisher Katherine Graham (Streep) and editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks), got the chance to print devastating revelations about US involvement in Vietnam. An old-fashioned Hollywood showstopper with a stellar supporting cast, and sizeable if predictable performances from the leads.

  • Cast: Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong'o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio del Toro, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran

Rey (Ridley) meets Luke (Hamill) to learn all about the Force. Johnson expands on the casualties-of-war theme, making magnificent, roaring action sequences and leading the viewer through a blood-stained moral labyrinth. Driver returns with a vengeance, Dern is terrific and it hits the sweet spot between nostalgia and gripping storytelling.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri
  • 2017
  • UK / US
  • 1h 55min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Martin McDonagh
  • Cast: Frances McDormand, Woody Harrelson, Sam Rockwell, Peter Dinklage

Exasperated by the police’s failure to catch her daughter’s murderer, Mildred Hayes (McDormand) buys ad space on the titular billboards to tear a strip off the police chief (Harrelson). McDonagh’s latest delicately balances the lingering pain of the crime itself with dark comedy, and a superb cast is topped by a magnificent performance from McDormand.
