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.

Chappie

Chappie
  • 2015
  • US
  • 120 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Neill Blomkamp
  • Cast: Sharlto Copley, Hugh Jackman, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver

Weapons developer Deon (Patel) reprogrammes the titular police robot into self-awareness, but then the robot's kidnapped (by Yolandi and Ninja of Die Antwoord) as part of an underworld scheme. Yolandi is believable but Ninja is awful, and despite dynamic action sequences the approach to big themes is simplistic and badly mishandled.

Cinderella

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

  • 12A
  • 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.

  • 2015

  • 140 min

  • 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.

Fifty Shades of Grey
  • 2015
  • US
  • 18
  • Directed by: Sam Taylor-Johnson
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Luke Grimes, Victor Rasuk, Jennifer Ehle

Despite its troubling gender politics and distinct lack of plot, the likeable Johnson brings nuance and charm to a paper-thin character; Dornan manages to offer a hint of humanity; and given the many constraints, this sleek, fairly trim and occasionally sensual adaptation is the best imaginable outcome.

  • Directed by: Glenn Ficarra/John Requa
  • Cast: Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Rodrigo Santoro

Nicky (Smith) is a lifelong con man who takes wannabe swindler Jess (Robbie) under his wing, only to fall for her; dull romantic twists and not-very-ingenious stings ensue. The two stars have almost no chemistry and the film's greatest scam is that it fools you into thinking it's going to amount to more than it does.

  • US/UK
  • 134 min

  • Directed by: David Ayer
  • Cast: Brad Pitt, Shia LaBeouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Peña, Jon Bernthal, Jason Issacs, Scott Eastwood

The tale of a Sherman tank crew, led by Sgt Don 'Wardaddy' Collier (Pitt), in the final weeks of WW II. Grim and intense (heads and limbs blown off, bodies crushed under tanks) but in one of his finest performances, Pitt shows the humanity beneath the gung-ho façade; Lerman is also impressive as the rookie.

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.

Gone Girl
  • 2014

  • Directed by: David Fincher
  • Cast: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike

Nick (Affleck) comes home on his fifth wedding anniversary to find his wife Amy (Pike) gone, and a series of revelations cast him in the worst possible light. Fincher directs with cool proficiency and a sense of brutal fun; Affleck is perfect, and Pike gives a bravura, breakout performance.

  • 2015
  • Spain/UK/France
  • 115 min

  • Directed by: Pierre Morel
  • Cast: Sean Penn, Idris Elba, Jasmine Trinca, Javier Bardem

Jim Terrier (Penn) is a hired assassin who undertakes a political hit; years later he becomes a target, and must find who wants him dead. Risible thriller with a clichéd script that wastes good actors (Bardem, Rylance, Penn himself) in a clumsy attempt to reinvent its star and producer as an action hero.

  • 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 confusing and uninteresting story, wall-to-wall Rihanna songs, twee dialogue and Parsons' annoyingly whiny voice make for a grating experience.

Eggsy (Egerton) is a streetwise petty criminal, who debonair secret agent Harry (Firth) inducts into Kingsman, a super-secret spy organisation going up against bonkers, lisping billionaire Richmond Valentine (Jackson). Egerton is confident and engaging, Firth is visibly enjoying himself, and despite the odd puerile joke it's riotously entertaining.

Paddington

Paddington
  • 2014
  • UK
  • 95 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw (voice), Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins

The story of an illegal immigrant from Peru and his efforts to be integrated into British society. He's a bear, by the way. Whishaw imbues the CGI Paddington with immense charm, the rest of the cast are excellent and the exuberant direction and smart, knowing script make for a genuine delight.

Jimmy (Neeson), a lonely alcoholic and associate of gangster Shawn Maguire (Harris), is broken by regret for his sins, but when Maguire puts out a hit on Jimmy's son Michael (Kinnaman), we know what'll happen: Liam Kicks Ass. Solid, watchable actioner with fine work from Neeson and Kinnaman; no classic but satisfactory.

The Seventh Son

The Seventh Son
  • 2013

  • Directed by: Sergey Bodrov
  • Cast: Ben Barnes, Julianne Moore, Jeff Bridges

Tom Ward (Barnes), the seventh son of a seventh son, becomes apprentice to the last of the 'spooks', Master Gregory (Bridges), with the aim of eradicating supernatural forces. Enjoyable hokum, with Moore wonderfully bitchy and Bridges unleashing Brian Blessed-like levels of ham. To be treasured by connoisseurs of truly bad film.

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.

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.

  • 2013

Kaguya (voiced by Moretz in the English dub) is magically born to a bamboo cutter (Caan) and his wife (Steenburgen), but she's devastated when he moves to the city so that she can become a princess. Enchanting, admirable fable about the damaging effects of stereotypes; Kaguya's father is not cruel, just terribly misguided.

Lonely factory worker Jerry (Reynolds) has regular conversations with his cat and dog, which take an odd turn when he kills a female co-worker. Satrapi's candy-coloured vision perfectly complements Perry's gleefully twisted script, and Reynolds (who voices all the animals) plays a blinder.

Nick Wild (Statham), a security expert working the backstreets of Vegas, gets a price on his head when he goes after a mobster for assaulting his friend Holly (Garcia-Lorido). Goldman's hard-bitten dialogue is laboured, the fight scenes are dull and it's a nasty mess all round.
