21 Bridges

21 Bridges
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Brian Kirk
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch, JK Simmons

Andre Davis (Boseman) is a Manhattan detective who teams up with Boston narcotics detective Miller on an investigation of a couple of cop killers. It’s an action-packed blood-bath with well-directed chase sequences, which nevertheless struggle against a predictable and cliché-ridden screenplay.

Abominable

Abominable

  • US / China
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Jill Culton
  • Cast: Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, Tsai Chin, Michelle Wong

A cute, blue-eyed Yeti is found hiding on the roof of a Shanghai apartment building, and teenager Yi (voiced by Bennett) and her friends Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai) decide to help him get back to the Himalayas. Enjoyable, smartly paced and gorgeously animated; hardly very original, but full of comic relief and heart.

  • 2019

  • Directed by: James Gray
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Tommy Lee Jones, Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler, Donald Sutherland

In the near future, Roy McBride (Pitt) is an astronaut searching for his father Clifford (Jones), himself a pioneering space explorer. But Roy’s classified mission turns deadly. Gray’s stellar third film is a huge step up, mixing horror and action with deeper themes and anchored by a dazzling turn from Pitt, who has never been better.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Conrad Vernon, Greg Tiernan
  • Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney

The titular family, Morticia (Theron), Gomez (Isaac), Wednesday (Moretz) and Pugsley (Wolfhard), are targeted by reality TV host Margaux Needler (Janney). The voice cast is decent and the style pays homage to Charles Addams' drawings, but it misses the darkly Gothic spirit of both the original and the Barry Sonnenfeld films, being disconcertingly family-friendly.

The Aeronauts

The Aeronauts
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 1h 40min
  • Directed by: Tom Harper
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Felicity Jones,

In 1862, meteorology pioneer James Glaisher (Redmayne) takes flight in a hot air balloon piloted by Amelia Wren (Jones). Old-school adventure with spectacular effects and a neatly layered screenplay; any predictability is offset by the film’s charm and the fond chemistry between Redmayne and Jones.

  • Written by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Cast: Stephen Odubola, Micheal Ward, Khali Best

Timmy (Odubola) befriends Marco (Ward), but they find themselves on separate sides of an increasingly ugly gang rivalry. Rapper-turned-writer/director Onwubolu, telling a story drawn from his own upbringing, draws compelling turns from Ward and Odubola and it packs a huge punch.

The Current War

The Current War
  • 2017
  • us
  • 1h 45min
  • Directed by: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
  • Cast: Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Nicholas Hoult

The tale of the 19th century battle to become the company that runs America’s electrical system, featuring mercurial showman Thomas Edison (Cumberbatch) and stolid engineer George Westinghouse (Shannon). Despite elegant cinematography and impressive set-pieces, it feels like an epic saga squashed into a tight canvas; a solid period drama that never quite comes to life.

  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Cliff Curtis

Danny (McGregor) is still recovering from the events at the Overlook Hotel, when his young friend Abra (Curran) is targeted by an evil cult led by Rose the Hat (Ferguson). McGregor is affecting, Curran is impressive and Ferguson is deeply sinister, but jarring imagery and laboured references to The Shining break the spell.

  • 2019

  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.

The Goldfinch

  • Directed by: John Crowley
  • Cast: Oakes Fegley, Ansel Elgort, Nicole Kidman

When Theodore (Fegley)’s mother is killed during a childhood trip to New York’s Metropolitan Museum, he steals a priceless 17th century oil painting. This adaptation of Donna Tartt’s Pulitzer-winning novel is meticulously crafted and faithful but meandering, and for all its pleasures it never becomes the sum of its parts.

The Good Liar

  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Nell Williams

Roy (McKellen) is a con man who targets wealthy widows, and when he targets Betty (Mirren) her son Steven (Tovey) becomes suspicious. It’s a blend of several genres which don’t quite fuse and is ultimately diverting but far from essential.

  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

  • Cast: Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Woody Harrelson

The story of the Battle of Midway, the WWII encounter that shifted the war in the Pacific in the Americans’ favour. Emmerich assembles a solid if rather uninspiring cast, the CGI-honed battle sequences are competent but not exactly nerve-shredding and the characters are two-dimensional.

  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

Shaun and his gang of sheep are getting up to mischief that puts them at odds with sensible sheepdog Bitzer; then an alien craft arrives. This dialogue-free pristinely shambolic stop-motion romp is, in its deft way, a crowd-pleaser for everyone, with enough Close Encounters references to keep parents interested.

The Sun Is Also a Star

  • Directed by: Ry Russo-Young
  • Cast: Yara Shahidi, Charles Melton, Anais Lee

Natasha (Shahidi) and Daniel (Melton) meet and wander around Manhattan for a day, while she’s struggling to keep her family from being deported to Jamaica. The blissed-out love letter to New York tonally jars with the underlying pessimism, and plot contrivances let its good intentions down, but it looks luminous and the flaws deserved to be overlooked.

In present-day Mexico City, Sarah Connor (Hamilton) forms fractious ties with augmented future soldier Grace (Davis) to protect Dani (Reyes) from a cyborg (Luna). Miller knows Hamilton is his trump card, and this female-focus reset brings heart, horror, focus and ferocity back to the series. Refreshing..

Tallahassee (Harrelson), Wichita (Stone), Columbus (Eisenberg) and Little Rock (Breslin) are ‘back for seconds’ as Columbus acknowledges in a voiceover. At first it seems a bit familiar, but the charm of the original slowly takes over: the action sequences are lively and the characters are as endearing as ever.
