Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 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.

Cinderella

Cinderella
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 105 min
  • 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.

  • Directed by: Dan Fogelman
  • Written by: Dan Fogelman
  • Cast: Melissa Benoist, Al Pacino, Christopher Plummer

Danny (Pacino) is an ageing rocker, still pumping out his old hits on tour, who receives a letter of advice written to him years earlier by John Lennon, but never sent, causing him to re-evaluate his life. Pacino is likeable as the shambolic, self-centred Danny.

  • 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.

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.

  • Written by: George Miller, Brendan McCarthy, Nico Lathouris
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Nicholas Hoult, Zoë Kravitz, Abbey Lee, Riley Keough, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Nathan Jones, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley

Reluctant hero Max (Hardy) is drawn into helping Imperator Furiosa (Theron, excellent), who's liberated a group of sexually enslaved women and is being pursued for her trouble by the grotesque Immortan Joe (Keays-Byrne). Precision-executed lunacy, a brilliantly feminist 'western on wheels' with a generous helping of heart.

  • Directed by: Ben Palmer
  • Written by: Tess Morris
  • Cast: Lake Bell, Simon Pegg, Henry Lloyd-Hughes

Cynical thirtysomething journalist Nancy (Bell, nailing an English accent) accidentally steals someone else's blind date, Jack (Pegg) and ends up falling for him. Although it's poorly-plotted and sometimes crude, the very likeable Bell makes the dialogue crackle and Pegg is more engaging than he's been in a long time.

  • 2014

  • Directed by: Xavier Picard, Hanna Hemilä
  • Cast: Russell Tovey, Nathaniel Parker, Tracy Ann Oberman, Stephanie Winiecki

The Moomins holiday in the South of France and fall in love with casino gambling and ritzy boutiques – all except for Moominmamma (Oberman), who heads for the beach. The elegant hand-drawn animation is a pleasure, although the casual pacing might not appeal to kids weaned on breathless action. A nostalgic treat.

  • Cast: Anna Kendrick, Skylar Astin, Anna Camp, Brittany Snow, Rebel Wilson, Ester Dean, Alexis Knapp, Hana Mae Lee, Adam DeVine, Kelley Jakle, Chrissie Fit, Hailee Steinfeld, Katey Sagal, Elizabeth Banks

After a catastrophic wardrobe malfunction at the White House, the Barden Bellas attempt to get their groove back in a Eurovision-like song contest. Despite highlights such as Lee's brilliantly weird performance as Lilly, the knowing charm of the original is diluted and Wilson's schtick, in particular, is starting to grate.

  • Cast: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clements

Eric (Rockwell) and Amy (DeWitt), three kids in tow, move into a new house in a typical American movie suburb, and strange things start happening. Likeable performances (including Harris as a TV ghostbuster) can't rescue this remake of the Spielberg/Hooper 1982 original from being not very terrifying or thrilling.

  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Alexandra Daddario, Carla Gugino, Colton Haynes, Morgan Griffin, Art Parkinson, Archie Panjabi, Todd Williams, Ioan Gruffudd, Will Yun Lee, Kylie Minogue, Paul Giamatti

An LA Search & Rescue pilot's ex-wife and her new man take his daughter to San Francisco. Meanwhile, in another part of the film, science guys are acting worried. Disaster movie! Johnson is great company, the supporting cast is fun and although the timing of the release is unfortunate, it's tremendously entertaining earthquake-based tosh.

Uptight everyman (Miller) and stoner friend (Pally) take to the road to rescue stranded nerdy friend #3 (Middleditch): it's like the guys from Drunk History trying to recall the plot of The Hangover, and in a perfect world would be the nail in the coffin of the 'White People vs. Mexico' movie.

When the Farmer gets lost in the Big City, Shaun (Fletcher) and his friends leave Mossy Bottom Farm to rescue him. With a steady stream of hilarious, well-timed sight gags, it's a beautifully made comedy for the whole family, packed with the kind of detail that rewards future viewings.

  • 2015

  • Directed by: Bharat Nalluri
  • Cast: Peter Firth, Kit Harington, Elyes Gabel, Jennifer Ehle

When MI5 bigwig Harry (Firth) apparently commits suicide, his rogue godson Will (Harington) is ensnared to find out the truth. The TV show's big-screen outing is very enjoyable but cinematically pedestrian, neither anywhere near the Bond/Bourne standard nor as grittily realistic as it thinks it is, but Firth and Harington play well together.

Susan (McCarthy) is a CIA office worker, the support to super-spy Bradley Fine (Law); when disaster strikes, Susan's withering boss Elaine (Janney) sends her into the field. Funny, exciting and genuinely ambitious spy spoof with an appealing performance from McCarthy, and Byrne exceptional as the arrogant villainess. Hugely likable.

  • Cast: Milla Jovovich, Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson

Kate (Jovovich) is a security hotshot who finds herself framed for murder and on the run, pursued by the authorities and a deadly assassin (Brosnan). Jovovich is an appealing lead, but a talented supporting cast is wasted on dull chases and a nonsensical plot, while Brosnan is just amusingly terrible.

Science-obsessed teenager Casey (Robertson) teams up with mysterious Athena (Cassidy) and child-genius-turned-grump Frank (Clooney) to unlock the secrets of a mysterious pin. Futuristic family adventure, refreshingly driven by two young women; Casey and Athena are inspiring heroes and the visuals are stunning.

When the world's animals board Noah's ark to escape from the flood, two junior creatures fall overboard and must find their way back to the ship. The extremely predictable story is a bit too similar to Finding Nemo and there's none of the wit, voice-over wizardry or impressive visuals of a Pixar production.
