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.

Big Hero 6

Big Hero 6
  • 2014
  • US
  • 108 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Williams, Don Hall
  • Cast: Ryan Potter, Scott Adsit, Jamie Chung, Damon Wayans Jr., Génesis Rodríguez, T. J. Miller, Daniel Henney, Maya Rudolph

Hiro (Potter) is a 14 year old robotics genius who, after a family tragedy, teams up with inflatable robot Baymax (Adsit) to become crimefighting superheroes. This Disney adaptation of a Marvel comic deals with dark themes of loss and grief but also has plenty of heart and some big laughs, especially from Adsit.

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.

  • US
  • 106 min

  • 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.

Fast & Furious 7

Furious 7
  • 2015
  • US
  • 140 min
  • 12A
  • 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.

  • Directed by: Tim Johnson
  • 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.

Into the Woods

Into the Woods
  • 2014
  • US
  • 124 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Marshall
  • Cast: Meryl Streep, Emily Blunt, James Corden, Anna Kendrick, Chris Pine, Tracey Ullman, Christine Baranski, Johnny Depp

Disney's long-in-the-making adaptation of Sondheim and Lapine's musical, in which a clutch of fairytale characters help a baker (Corden) and his wife (Blunt) lift a curse which prevents them from having a baby. Despite some great moments, the story drags; if you're a fan it's likely to please, but it won't win anyone else over.

Mad Max: Fury Road

Mad Max: Fury Road
  • 2015
  • US/Australia
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: George Miller
  • 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.

Man Up

Man Up
  • 2015
  • UK/France
  • 88 min
  • 15
  • 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.

Pitch Perfect 2

Pitch Perfect 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 114 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Elizabeth Banks
  • 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.

Poltergeist

Poltergeist

  • Directed by: Gil Kenan
  • 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.

  • Directed by: Brad Peyton
  • 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.

Selma
  • 2014
  • US
  • 128 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ava DuVernay
  • Cast: David Oyelowo, Carmen Ejogo, Tim Roth, Tom Wilkinson

The story of the 1965 civil rights marches from Selma to Montgomery, with Martin Luther King (Oyelowo) facing a nervous President Johnson (Wilkinson) and Alabama's racist Governor Wallace (Roth). Among a stellar cast Oyelowo is exceptional, and DuVernay and Webb capture both the greatness and the limitations of King's achievements. Essential.

Spooks: The Greater Good

Spooks: The Greater Good
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 104 min
  • 15
  • 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.

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.

Lincoln's current Odeon is on Brayford Waterfront in the heart of the town (the original Odeon, a much-loved art deco building on High Street, having passed into independent ownership as the Ritz.) The nine-screen Odeon is fully accessible, with wheelchair spaces and an infrared system for the hard-of-hearing in each auditorium.

The Brayford complex has multi-story car parking, which has a flat evening charge after 6pm, and also houses a variety of bars and restaurants. Lincoln bus and train stations are each about five minutes' walk away.
