Black Panther

Black Panther
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ryan Coogler
  • Cast: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong'o, Danai Gurira, Martin Freeman, Daniel Kaluuya, Angela Bassett, Forest Whitaker, Andy Serkis

T’Challa (Boseman) ascends to the throne of Wakanda after his father is killed, and he and former lover Nakia (Nyong’o) must avenge the theft of an artefact made of Wakanda’s precious vibranium. Ground-breaking superhero story with awesome action; Boseman is agile and impressive, but the female contingent is superb and sombre themes sit comfortably alongside comedy.

Coco

Coco
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Lee Unkrich
  • Cast: Anthony Gonzalez, Gael García Bernal, Benjamin Bratt, Renée Victor, Ana Ofelia Murguia, Edward James Olmos

Miguel (Rivera) is a 12-year-old Mexican boy who wants to be a musician, but his family disapproves. Then he steals a guitar from a mausoleum and finds himself in the Land of the Dead. An eye-popping mosaic of a kids’ movie which pays proper respect to Mexican folklore, its sincerity and creativity are ultimately winning.

The Commuter

The Commuter
  • 2018
  • US / UK
  • 1h 44min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Jaume Collet-Serra
  • Cast: Liam Neeson, Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson

Michael McCauley (Neeson) is made redundant one day. On the train home, the mysterious Joanna (Farmiga) makes him a cash offer to find someone. Neeson and Collet-Serra’s fourth collaboration is as generic as it sounds, with breathless action, numerous plot holes and a ludicrous story.

Den of Thieves

Den of Thieves
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 20min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Christian Gudegast
  • Cast: Gerard Butler, 50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Evan Jones, Dawn Olivieri, Mo McRae, Max Holloway

An elite unit of the LA County Sheriff’s Department crosses paths with the state’s most successful heist crew. There are plenty of twists, and writer-director Gudegast makes a reasonable job of the robbery and shoot-out, but it’s too clearly in thrall to Michael Mann’s Heat, and Butler is no Pacino.

Early Man

Early Man
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Nick Park
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Tom Hiddleston, Maisie Williams, Timothy Spall, Richard Ayoade, Selina Griffiths, Johnny Vegas, Mark Williams, Gina Yashere, Simon Greenall

Gormless caveman Dug (Redmayne) and his clan are menaced by Bronze Age invader Lord Nooth (Hiddleston), until twinkle-toed defector Goona (Williams) joins them to help them unite. Deliciously daft prehistoric fun from Park and his team on top form, with winning human touches, plenty of sight gags and painful puns.

Ferdinand

Ferdinand
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Carlos Saldanha
  • Written by: Munro Leaf
  • Cast: Kate McKinnon, David Tennant, Bobby Cannavale

Ferdinand (Cena) is a Spanish bull who prefers sniffing flowers to staring down bullfighters; shipped off to a farm, he has to escape both the slaughterhouse and the ring. Amiable animation which, although funny, is too overcrowded and unfocused to be really satisfying.

Fifty Shades Freed

Fifty Shades Freed
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • Directed by: James Foley
  • Written by: E.L James
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson

Christian Grey (Dornan) and new bride Ana (Johnson) wrestle with married life, but are pursued by a knife-wielding stalker whose identity is known to the audience all along. It’s easy to see where he’s coming from, as you’ll learn to hate them too. Not a climax, just an ending.

The Greatest Showman

The Greatest Showman
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 45min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Michael Gracey
  • Cast: Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron, Michelle Williams, Rebecca Ferguson, Zendaya

A musical version of the life of showman and genius of hype PT Barnum (Jackman), and how he went from running a museum of ‘curiosities’ to promoting Swedish soprano Jenny Lind (Ferguson). Jackman has rock-star charisma and Gracey delivers a kaleidoscopic, family-friendly spectacle.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Bobby Cannavale

Four high school teens in detention discover the magical board game Jumanji, now a video game, and after being sucked into it they become the avatars they’ve chosen. Crude but amusing sequel to the 1995 original, with Black having a ball as he gets in touch with his inner prom queen.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure

Maze Runner: The Death Cure
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 42min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Wes Ball
  • Cast: Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Nathalie Emmanuel, Giancarlo Esposito, Aidan Gillen, Walton Goggins, Ki Hong Lee, Barry Pepper, Will Poulter, Patricia Clarkson

The final part of the trilogy sees Thomas (O’Brien) determined to rescue his fellow glader Minho (Lee) from the clutches of WCKD. Thomas is, as usual, the dead weight that stops these movies from taking off, while the treacherous but conflicted Teresa (Scodelario) is far more interesting. A so-so series winds to its so-so ending.

Paddington 2

Paddington 2
  • 2017
  • UK/France
  • 1h 43min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Paul King
  • Cast: Ben Whishaw, Hugh Grant, Brendan Gleeson, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Julie Walters, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi, Madeleine Harris, Samuel Joslin, Imelda Staunton

Paddington (Whishaw) falls foul of a dastardly scheme to steal the key to a hidden fortune. The sequel to the wildly successful first film is implausibly even better, with spiffing action pieces, seemingly throwaway gags paying rich dividends later, and splendid performances from all, with Grant brilliant as the has-been thespian villain. Joyful stuff.

The Bellas are all struggling in the workplace after leaving college, so they get the old gang back together to tour European army bases. It plays out as an entertaining variety show mixed with an action thriller, with enough energy to deliver cheesy and diverting fun.
