Ant-Man

Ant-Man
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Hayley Atwell

A winning addition to Marvel's cinematic universe, Ant Man follows Dr Hank Pym (Douglas) as he fails in re-sizing himself, but unexpectedly imbues himself with the ability to talk to and control insects. With winning performances from Rudd, Cannavale and Douglas, this charming and eccentric heist film has a great sense of humour, though it's not all light-hearted. Father-daughter relationships add splendid emotional weight, while the film also addresses the female-fronted superhero film dilemma. Yes, there's mayhem, but it’s gilded with a sense of responsibility and mischief, all of which adds up to an utter delight.

  • 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 grating experience, thanks to a confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice.

Hot Pursuit

Hot Pursuit
  • 2015
  • US
  • 87 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anne Fletcher
  • Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Sofía Vergara

Cooper (Witherspoon) is an ambitious and gung-ho Texan cop whose clumsiness has made her a laughing-stock; then she has to escort drug-dealer's-wife Daniella (Vergara) across the state. The two stars have appealing interplay and Vergara is very funny, but the script demands too much shrieking and squeaking and the action is underpowered.

  • 2015

  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

Jurassic World
  • 2015
  • US
  • 124 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Colin Trevorrow
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Ty Simpkins, Nick Robinson

Dino-geek Gray (Simpkins) visits Jurassic Park with brother Zach (Robinson); the park's manager, their aunt Claire (Howard), is less than attentive until a new creation runs amok and raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) steps in. Despite a merely functional screenplay, it has enough scares, scale, ideas and variety to keep everyone entertained.

The Legend of Barney Thomson

The Legend of Barney Thomson
  • 2015
  • UK/Canada
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Robert Carlyle
  • Cast: Robert Carlyle, Emma Thompson, Ray Winstone

Barney (Carlyle), a downtrodden Glasgow barber, accidentally stabs his boss Wullie (McCole) to death, and then has to cover up the crime. Carlyle's directorial debut has some decent performances, including his own, but is seriously let down by a garbled, unfunny script, discordant photography and woefully dated gallows humour.

  • Directed by: Henry Hobson
  • Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson

When humanity is afflicted by an outbreak of 'necroambulist' virus, stoic farmer Wade (Schwarzenegger) opts to look after his afflicted teenage daughter Maggie (Breslin) rather than hand her over to the authorities. A moody, sensitive zombie movie about the death of a child, with fine performances from the leads.

Magic Mike XXL

Magic Mike XXL

  • Directed by: Greg Jacobs
  • Cast: Channing Tatum, Alex Pettyfer

Mike (Tatum) takes a weekend away from his business to join his stripper buddies on a road trip to … a stripping convention. Winning blend of male bonding and female fantasy, with the men much more likable than most all-male comedy ensembles. As sweet and steamy as fresh cherry pie.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min

  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg

Ethan (Cruise) and the gang are on the trail of the nefarious Syndicate when their unit is dissolved by the CIA. With jaw-dropping action, ingenious gadgets and a striking performance from Ferguson as the mysterious Ilsa, this is a a slick, accomplished and hugely entertaining slice of mayhem.

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.

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.

Ted 2

Ted 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 116 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Seth MacFarlane
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane, Jessica Barth

Though the novelty factor of the original has disappeared, the return of foul-mouthed teddybear Ted (voice of MacFarlane) and his best bro and thunder buddy John (Wahlberg) is a welcome one. This shamelessly puerile comedy begins after our furry friend and his new wife Tami-Lynn (Barth) are denied the chance to adopt a baby, and sees Ted embark on a crusade to New York to appeal against the decision and reclaim his liberties. This sequel is lewd and loud, and for every gag that flops, two belters are right behind it.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 125 min

  • Directed by: Alan Taylor
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, Matt Smith

More time-travel hi-jinks as the Resistance battles Skynet and timelines collide all over the shop. Solidly workmanlike action sequences meet bewilderingly confusing writing and the characters are soon as lost as the audience, in what feels more like a parody of the franchise than the dawn of a new era.
