  • Directed by: Nima Nourizadeh
  • Cast: Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Uma Thurman

Mike (Eisenberg) is a West Virginia stoner about to pop the question to girlfriend Phoebe (Stewart) when he's attacked by two men and discovers assassin skills he didn't know he had. Energetic action comedy with a witty and surprisingly sweet screenplay; Stewart and Eisenberg are great.

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.

The Bad Education Movie

The Bad Education Movie
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 90 min

  • Directed by: Elliot Hegarty
  • Cast: Jack Whitehall, Mathew Horne, Sarah Solemani, Harry Enfield

In this big-screen adaptation of the sitcom, disastrous teacher Alfie Wickers (Whitehall) takes his suspiciously small class on a school trip to Cornwall. A confusing and offensive mess, likely to appeal only to Whitehall completists interested in seeing prosthetic recreations of his balls on multiple occasions.

  • 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.

  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

Hitman: Agent 47
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Aleksander Bach
  • Cast: Rupert Friend, Hannah Ware, Zachary Quinto

Katia (Ware) is the estranged daughter of a scientist (Hinds) who's credited with the creation of genetically engineered assassins, and now she's being hunted by one, Agent 47 (Friend). Derivative reboot of an already forgettable franchise; Friend is efficient, but Ware lacks authority, the story makes no sense and it's generally charmless, mindless and cursory.

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.

  • 2015

  • 116 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Guy Ritchie
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Armie Hammer, Alicia Vikander, Elizabeth Debicki, Hugh Grant

This stylish rendition of the 60s spy series suffers from a vague and clunky script, but is somewhat redeemed by the skilful casting of Cavill and Hammer. Grant has enormous fun as the shadowy controller Waverly, and there's one incredible set piece you don't want to miss.

  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin

  • 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.

  • Cast: Cara Delevingne, Nat Wolff, Cara Buono

Q (Wolff) and friends go on a trip to find Q's childhood friend and ultimate crush Margo (Delevingne), who has disappeared. This adaptation of John Green's novel tries to pick apart the cliché of the manic pixie dream girl but a fantastic supporting cast and indie pop soundtrack aren't enough to save it.

When aliens challenge Earth to a series of giant video game contests, disgruntled middle-aged gamer Sam (Sandler) is called on by former childhood friend Will (James), now US President, to step up. Lazy, self-satisfied exercise in 80s nostalgia, with honourable mentions for Gad, Cox and Dinklage in a scene-stealing turn as an arrogant Donkey Kong expert.

  • Cast: Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Nicholas King

A young mother and her son move into a house haunted by a monster with a posse of snuff-film-addicted ghost children, which works out about as well as you'd expect. Lacklustre sequel which gives far too much screen time to its monster and which is less scary than irritating.

Biopic of rap group NWA, focusing on the recording of their debut album, their subsequent fallings-out and eventual disintegration. Mitchell is excellent as Eazy-E and despite some second-half problem, it's punchy, provocative and packed with attitude, worthy of comparison with the similarly themed Boyz n the Hood and 8 Mile.

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

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.
