Assassin's Creed

Assassin's Creed
  • 2016
  • France/US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Justin Kurzel
  • Cast: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Michael K. Williams, Ariane Labed, Jeremy Irons, Brendan Gleeson

Callum Lynch (Fassbender) is a convicted murderer who wakes up in a research facility to find that his ancestor was a 15th century Spanish assassin and he's to travel in time and wage war against the Knights Templar. The set pieces are spectacular but the flip-flopping between past and present messes up the rhythm, and it's all a bit pedestrian.

Ballerina

Ballerina
  • 2016
  • France / Canada
  • 89 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Eric Summer / Éric Warin
  • Cast: Voices of Dane DeHaan, Elle Fanning, Maddie Ziegler

Orphaned Félicie (Fanning) strives to reach her dream of performing ballet at the Grand Opera House, with the help of mentor Odette (Jepsen). A ballet version of The Karate Kid, it looks nice but the soundtrack is a mish-mash and the story is formulaic and lacks comic zing.

Bridget Jones's Baby

Bridget Jones's Baby
  • 2016
  • UK
  • 123 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sharon Maguire
  • Cast: Renée Zellweger, Colin Firth, Patrick Dempsey

Bridget (Zellweger) is back, and pregnant, either by handsome American Jack (Dempsey) or Mark (Firth), the ex she never got over. Cue babymaking shenanigans. Bridget's fretting about being a 'spinster' comes across as self-hatred, and the men don't deserve the poor treatment she gives them. Not cute, not charming; just awful.

The Bye Bye Man

The Bye Bye Man
  • 2017
  • US
  • 96 min

  • Directed by: Stacy Title
  • Cast: Douglas Smith, Lucien Laviscount, Cressida Bonas, Jenna Kanell

Elliot (Smith), best friend John (Laviscount) and girlfriend Sasha (Bonas) find themselves haunted by the creepy titular spirit who possesses you if you say his name (whooo). Unoriginal teen horror with some bog-standard CGI and a flimsy gesture towards exploring the psychology of mass murder.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them
  • 2016
  • UK/US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: David Yates
  • Written by: J.K. Rowling
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Katherine Waterston

Newt Scamander (Redmayne), a socially-challenged animal whisperer of sorts, has to gather up the fantastic beasts which have escaped from his briefcase and are roaming 1920s New York. A suitably magical spin-off, with Rowling's screenplay skilfully balancing dark and light, and director Yates maintaining a thrilling pace and exciting spectacle.

  • US
  • 121 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Written by: Dan Brown (novel)
  • Cast: Tom Hanks, Felicity Jones, Ben Foster

Professor Robert Langdon (Hanks) wakes up in a hospital with a bullet wound to the head, a kindly female sidekick (Jones) and a whole lotta skimpily-researched exposition to do. A half-decent plot and a strong international cast make this perhaps the least disappointing of the Dan Brown adaptations.

La La Land
  • 2016
  • US
  • 126 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Damien Chazelle
  • Cast: Emma Stone, Ryan Gosling, J.K. Simmons

In Los Angeles, aspiring actress Mia (Stone) falls for jazz musician Sebastian (Gosling). Audaciously inventive homage to classic movie musicals, technically wonderful and joyously emotional, with Gosling as a goofy idealistic charmer and Stone showing the versatility, vulnerability and talent of a young Shirley MacLaine. Irresistible.

  • Australia/UK/US
  • Directed by: Garth Davis
  • Written by: Saroo Brierley, Luke Davies
  • Cast: Dev Patel, Rooney Mara, David Wenham, Nicole Kidman

The true story of Saroo Brierley, who aged five is separated from his mother and family in India, declared lost and adopted by an Australian couple, only to track his family down years later using Google Earth. Hugely emotional, remarkably assured debut from Davis, with fine performances.

Live By Night

  • Directed by: Ben Affleck
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Scott Eastwood, Zoe Saldana

Joe Coughlin (Affleck) is a mobster and WW1 veteran who aims to avenge the death of his lover. Lavish production values and fine performances aside, Affleck the actor doesn't quite get under his character's skin and this isn't up to the standard of his previous directorial work.

  • Cast: Casey Affleck, Michelle Williams, Lucas Hedges, Kyle Chandler, Gretchen Mol

Lee (Affleck) is a carefree small-town guy who, when his brother dies, is given the job of raising his nephew (Hedges). A masterful blend of high drama, quirky characterisations and incidental detail, with a soulful, heartbreaking turn by Affleck at its core.

  • 103 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Ron Clements, John Musker
  • Cast: Auli'i Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Temuera Morrison, Nicole Scherzinger, Rachel House, Jemaine Clement, Alan Tudyk

Moana (Carvalho) is a plucky Polynesian girl who revives the voyaging tradition of her island tribe, with the help of buffoonish demigod Maui (Johnson, exuberantly sending himself up.) The unabashed positivity is pure Disney but Bush's zingy screenplay satirises the studio's princess obsession and there's a refreshing lack of a love interest. A spirited, vividly realised and genuinely rousing adventure.

Twelve-year-old Conor (MacDougall) has a mother (Jones) who's battling cancer and a father (Kebbell) who's walked out; then a yew-tree-shaped monster with Neeson's voice comes into his life. Coming-of-age tearjerker with a sometimes thin story, but fine performances from Jones and MacDougall.

During a 120-year space journey to a new planet, Jim (Pratt) wakes up early from hibernation, and faced with the prospect of living entirely alone, he wakes up Aurora (Lawrence). Despite sleek and inventive visuals, it's a predictable love story that turns out to be an empty vessel.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Jean-Loup Felicioli, Alain Gagnol
  • Cast: Marcus D'Angelo, Jared Padalecki, Vincent D'Onofrio

Leo (D'Angelo) is a seriously ill young boy whose illness has the side-effect that he can leave his body and fly over the city; he uses this to help an injured cop (Padalecki) tangling with a crime boss (D'Onofrio). Refreshingly dark tale from the directors of A Cat in Paris, sensitive but unsentimental.

Scorsese's long-planned passion project, an adaptation of Shusaku Endo's 1966 novel about two 17th century Catholic priests (Garfield & Driver) who travel to Japan in search of their mentor (Neeson). Fervently told and unusually cerebral – if a little black and white – it's a work of courageous severity and contemplation.

Kevin (McAvoy) suffers from dissociative identity disorder; when he kidnaps three teenage girls, best pals Marcia (Sula) and Claire (Richardson) and troubled loner Casey (Taylor-Joy), multi-personality strangeness ensues. With superb work from McAvoy and Taylor-Joy, this is easily Shyamalan's most compelling and intelligent movie in years.

Storks used to deliver babies, but now they run an Amazon-style delivery service; then ambitious stork Junior (Samberg) and colleague Tulip (Crown) have to deliver an actual baby. Colourful animation and some amusing voice work can't fix the gigantic plot holes, which will leave both parents and kids scratching their heads.

James (Treadaway) is a homeless heroin addict who gets onto a support programme, which offers him a flat on condition he stick to the rules. Enter the titular cat, which forces James to care for something else. Based on a true story; Treadaway is very watchable, and Bob the cat is (largely) played by himself. Gritty and heartwarming.

The story of pilot Chesley 'Sully' Sullenberger (Hanks), who became an unassuming hero in 2009 after successfully ditching a US Airways Airbus 320 on the Hudson River. Eckhart gives strong support as co-pilot Jeff Skiles but the film belongs to Hanks, whose understated performance, with the skilful re-enactments of the crash, make for riveting drama.

Trolls are cute creatures who love EDM and warm hugs, but they're preyed on by Bergens, toothy monsters who think eating Trolls will bring happiness. Hyperactive buddy movie with dazzling visuals and lots of ditzy fun, but not as fresh or original as some of the competition.

Selene (Beckinsale) makes an alliance with her former coven, which fears an attack from the werewolves. The world's dullest vampires are back, still droning on about the same old back-story, and engaging in poorly staged and repetitive action sequences. Beckinsale does her very best, but this franchise is long overdue for a stake through the heart.

Breezy, likeable comedy with Cranston superb as the troubled father and Franco on home turf as the boyfriend, while Key almost steals the show as Laird's Cato / butler.
