Another Mother's Son

Another Mother's Son
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 103 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Menaul
  • Cast: Jenny Seagrove, Julian Kostov, Ronan Keating, John Hannah, Amanda Abbington

Louisa Gold (Seagrove) is a widowed Jersey shopkeeper with two sons fighting in WW2 when the Channel Islands are occupied by the Germans; she takes in an escaped Russian POW (Kostov). The look and atmosphere of 40s Jersey is well caught, but the story is predictable and it feels like a tame TV drama.

Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast
  • 2017
  • US
  • 129 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Emma Watson, Dan Stevens, Emma Thompson, Luke Evans, Ewan McGregor, Josh Gad

Belle (Watson) is forced to live with a Beast (Stevens) in this live-action retelling of the 1991 blockbuster. Watson is winsome but feisty, Evans as Gaston is splendid of voice and hilariously odious, McGregor brings much joie de vivre to ‘Be Our Guest’, and it’s an enchantingly realised delight.

The Boss Baby

The Boss Baby
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 97 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Tom McGrath
  • Written by: Marla Frazee/Michael McCullers
  • Cast: Miles Christopher Bakshi, Alec Baldwin, Tobey Maguire, Steve Buscemi

The Boss Baby (Baldwin) is a tot with the mannerisms of a ruthless corporate tycoon, who upsets seven-year-old Tim (Bakshi). The frantic visual style and crude slapstick overwrite the charm of the original story by Marla Frazee, and there’s not much for audiences to take to their hearts.

Free Fire

Free Fire
  • 2016
  • France, UK
  • 90 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ben Wheatley
  • Cast: Cillian Murphy, Sharlto Copley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer

Boston, 1978: Chris (Murphy) is an IRA member looking to buy guns from Vern (Copley), with the help of go-betweens Justine (Larson) and Ord (Hammer): it soon descends into violence. Copley is very funny and there's some terrific dialogue, but Wheatley's latest sees him fumble the ball, with a threadbare plot that's merely an excuse for a movie-length shoot-out.

Ghost in the Shell

Ghost in the Shell
  • 2017
  • US
  • 107 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rupert Sanders
  • Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Pilou Asbæk, Michael Pitt, Takeshi Kitano, Juliette Binoche

Major (Johansson) is a human brain harvested from a body that cannot be saved, and placed in a cyborg shell to be an asset to elite crime busters Section 9. Barnstorming action, incredible production design, a nicely diverse cast with Johansson spectacularly measuring up to the role’s physical and emotional demands, and a killer geisha robot: what’s not to like?

Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island
  • 2017
  • US
  • 118 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jordan Vogt-Roberts
  • Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, Brie Larson, Jing Tian, Toby Kebbell, John Ortiz, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Terry Notary, John C. Reilly

In 1973 a team of scientists goes to explore a recently discovered island with its own ecosystem, which turns out to include a 100-foot-tall ape which can punch helicopters out of the sky. Kong himself is impressive, if his fellow beasts are less so, and a great cast and able direction make this a monstrously entertaining actioner.

Logan

Logan
  • 2017
  • US
  • 137 min

  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Patrick Stewart, Dafne Keen, Stephen Merchant

Grey-haired, boozy and ailing, Logan (Jackman) is caring for the now elderly Charles Xavier (Stewart) when he encounters a young mutant girl, Laura (Keen). A glorious swansong for Wolverine; the world-weary tone, low-key setting and ballsy climax really impress. First class.

The Lost City of Z

The Lost City of Z
  • 2016
  • US
  • 141 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Charlie Hunnam, Robert Pattinson

The true story of the Amazonian expeditions of British army officer Percy Fawcett (Hunnam), which inspired Conan Doyle’s The Lost World. Despite good work from Hunnam, Miller as Percy’s plucky wife and Pattinson as his loyal sidekick, it’s a languorous and sometimes confusing story which sometimes becomes The Lost City of Zzzzz.

  • 2016
  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Wedge
  • Written by: Jonathan Aibel, Glenn Berger
  • Cast: Jane Levy, Amy Ryan, Lucas Till, Holt McCallany

What would happen if monster trucks had real monsters in them? Some cute moments, some nifty visual puns and a spicy and spectacular performance from Levy, but basically, this is what happens when a studio executive develops a film idea with his four-year-old son.

  • US
  • 124 min

  • Directed by: Dean Israelite
  • Cast: Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott, RJ Cyler, Becky G, Ludi Lin, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Banks

Five misfit teenagers take too long to bond into a primary-coloured superteam, in this third crack at a cinema version of the TV show. Banks has a ball as the cackling, lunatic villain Rita Repulsa, but it never finds its footing, resorts to the usual superhero ultra-carnage, and powers down long before the end.

  • USA
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kelly Asbury
  • Written by: Stacey Harman/Pamela Ribon
  • Cast: Demi Lovato, Ariel Winter, Julia Roberts, Joe Manganiello

Smurfette (Lovato) and her friends go on a quest to help her find her place in the village, and the result is a series of chases, a few under-cooked girl-power nods and a lot of sappiness. Undemanding kids might have a good time; adults will have to grin and smurf it.

Viceroy's House

Viceroy's House
  • 2017
  • UK / India
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gurinder Chadha
  • Cast: Gillian Anderson, Michael Gambon, Hugh Bonneville, Manish Dayal, Huma Qureshi

Lord Louis Mountbatten (Bonneville) is to oversee Britain’s withdrawal from India and the ensuing partition, but he and his wife Edwina (Anderson) witness the violence erupting through the country. A below-stairs romance between Dayal and Qureshi is frustratingly insipid and the Indian characters are all unforgivably poorly drawn. Despite some good acting, timid and inert.
