Avengers: Age of Ultron

Avengers: Age of Ultron
  • 2015
  • US
  • 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.

Blade Runner: The Final Cut

Blade Runner: The Final Cut
  • 1982
  • US
  • 112 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer

Fifteen years on from the 1992 'Director's Cut', Scott has had another bash at his sci-fi opus which pitted Deckard (Ford) against a slew of replicants. Now a more linear, voiceover-free film noir, for once a great film has been made better thanks to advances in special effects technology and thoughtful rethinking.

Child 44
  • 2015
  • 15
  • Directed by: Daniel Espinosa
  • Written by: Richard Price/Tom Rob Smith
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Joel Kinnaman, Noomi Rapace, Gary Oldman

Leo (Hardy) is a military policeman in the Stalin-era Soviet Union, tasked with investigating a series of child killings that are unacknowledged by the state. Hardy and Rapace lead an excellent cast, and although it packs in a little too much it's a pleasingly pulpy thriller.

Cinderella

  • 2015

  • 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.

Insurgent

  • Directed by: Robert Schwentke
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Miles Teller

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and the remnants of the Dauntless race tirelessly hither and thither in part 2 of the Divergent series. Woodley does very well with what she's given, but the other parts are underwritten and it all feels like a build-up to the extended finale of this bewildering and hardly essential franchise.

The DUFF
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Ari Sandel
  • Cast: Mae Whitman, Allison Janney, Bella Thorne,

When teenager Bianca (Whitman) is called out by her social circle as their DUFF – Designated Ugly Fat Friend – she decides to rid herself of the label. Heartfelt if somewhat formulaic comedy about staying true to yourself, with a smart script and outstanding performances from Whitman and Janney as her supportive single mother.

  • 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.

Get Hard

Get Hard
  • 2014
  • US

  • Directed by: Etan Cohen
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Kevin Hart, Alison Brie

Hedge fund exec James (Ferrell) is to be sent to prison for fraud, so he persuades law-abiding car wash owner Darnell (Hart) to teach him how to survive in prison, on the grounds that Darnell is black. If you can stand lots of jokes about prison rape, it's occasionally brilliant, if somewhat uneven.

The Good Lie

  • 110 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Philippe Falardeau
  • Cast: Reese Witherspoon, Arnold Oceng, Ger Duany, Emmanuel Jal, Corey Stoll, Sarah Baker, Kuoth Wiel

A group of Sudanese orphans escape the horror of the civil war by walking 800-odd miles to a refugee camp; years later, they are relocated to the USA. Witherspoon gives generous support but the central players (chiefly Oceng, Duany and Jal) are charismatic and moving, as are the children who play their younger selves.

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.

John Wick (Reeves), a retired hitman in mourning for his wife, gets back in the game when mob kingpin's clueless son Iosef (Allen) kills his puppy. One of Reeves' best roles yet, in a stylish hitman-with-a-heart thriller crammed with satisfying action sequences, solid direction, innovative cinematography and terrific production design.

A Little Chaos
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 116 min

  • Directed by: Alan Rickman
  • Cast: Kate Winslet, Helen McCrory, Stanley Tucci

Sabine (Winslet), a widowed landscape gardener in 1682 Paris, is commissioned to work on the gardens of Versailles, but her friendship with the head gardener (Schoenaerts) provokes the fury of his scheming wife (McCrory). Crowd-pleasing period drama; what it lacks in historical accuracy it makes up for with fine performances, an engaging story and strong direction from Rickman.

  • 2014
  • US
  • PG
  • Directed by: Shawn Levy
  • Cast: Ben Stiller, Robin Williams, Dan Stevens, Ricky Gervais, Rebel Wilson, Ben Kingsley, Owen Wilson

Former museum nightwatchman Larry (Stiller), now a manager at New York's Museum of Natural History, goes to London to rekindle a magical object. Stiller looks bored, and despite some refreshing cameos and the last, shining glimpse of Williams, it's so laboured and lousy it makes you want to punch yourself in the face.

This sequel to The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (yes, you may have guessed) has an ensemble cast, and follows the expansionist dreams of Sonny. He has his eye on a second property, but there are still predicaments to resolve in his first.

Life goes on at usual in Bikini Bottom until real-life pirate Burger-Beard (Banderas) causes apocalyptic mayhem; SpongeBob and arch-nemesis Plankton must team up to defeat him. Despite a lazy superhero plot twist in the final act, it has enough colourful characters and hilarious one-liners to keep both kids and adults entertained.
