13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi
  • 2016
  • US
  • 144 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Michael Bay
  • Cast: John Krasinski, James Badge Dale, Pablo Schreiber

Dramatic retelling of the 2012 attack by Islamic militants on US diplomats in Benghazi. Good actors are wasted in this worthless extended Republican Party election broadcast, which eschews nuance, interest in non-Americans, respect for women and basic humanity in favour of shaky camerawork, jingoism, unbridled misogyny and explosions.

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip
  • 2015
  • US
  • 86 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Walt Becker
  • Written by: Ross Bagdasarian, Janice Karman, Randi Mayem Singer
  • Cast: Jason Lee, Justin Long, Matthew Gray Gubler, Jesse McCartney, Bella Thorne, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, Tony Hale

The three squeaky-voiced vermin hit the road on a mission to stop their owner Dave (Lee) from proposing. A passing reference to John Waters' 1972 cult classic Pink Flamingos, which features an infamous excrement-eating scene, highlights the extent to which this film serves pretty much the same substance to the viewer.

  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam McKay
  • Written by: Michael Lewis, Adam McKay, Charles Randolph
  • Cast: Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Karen Gillan, Brad Pitt

In the middle of the biggest property boom in American history, a group of financial experts bets that it's all about to collapse. A righteous, angry call to arms dolled up with satirical absurdity, irony, montage, knowing cinematic and pop culture references, snappy dialogue and smoking hot performances from an astonishing cast.

Capture the Flag

Capture the Flag
  • 2015
  • Spain
  • 94 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Enrique Gato
  • Cast: Dani Rovira, Michelle Jenner, Carme Calvell

When villainous energy magnate Richard Carson questions the validity of the original moon landing, the race is on for NASA to return to the moon and stop Carson rewriting history. Despite a promising theme, this lame CG adventure is lacking in laughs, ideas or charm and just about scrapes by on good intentions.

Daddy's Home
  • 2015
  • US
  • 96 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, Linda Cardellini

Brad (Ferrell) lives with new wife Sarah (Cardellini) and is bonding with her kids when her unreliable ex-husband Dusty (Wahlberg) barges into the picture, wanting her back. A good premise quickly turns crass and unfunny; Cardellini is wasted in an underwritten role and a single, lazy, sexist joke is spread over 96 forgettable minutes.

Dad's Army
  • 2015

  • Directed by: Oliver Parker
  • Written by: David Croft, Hamish McColl, Jimmy Perry
  • Cast: Toby Jones, Bill Nighy, Michael Gambon, Bill Paterson, Blake Harrison, Tom Courtenay, Daniel Mays, Catherine Zeta-Jones

The Home Guard of Walmington-on-Sea find a German spy in their midst – don't panic, indeed. Faithful but strangely pointless recreation of the classic sitcom, in which fine actors like Jones, Nighy, Gambon etc only succeed in being inferior imitations of the originals. Like the characters themselves, brave but ultimately foolhardy.

  • US
  • 119 min

  • Directed by: Tom Hooper
  • Written by: David Ebershoff, Lucinda Coxon
  • Cast: Eddie Redmayne, Amber Heard, Alicia Vikander

Copenhagen painter Einar Wegener (Redmayne) has a loving marriage with fellow artist Gerda (Vikander), who encourages him to don women's clothes, prompting his realisation that he wants to become a woman. Touching and dignified real-life tale of 1930s transgender pioneer Lili Elbe, although at times it suffers from its own sumptuous respectability.

  • Directed by: Tim Miller
  • Written by: Rhett Reese, Paul Wernick
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Morena Baccarin, Gina Carano, Ed Skrein

Cynical crook Wade Wilson (Reynolds) undergoes an experimental procedure to transform him into a superhero, but emerges as the scarred and revenge-bent Deadpool. The emphasis on knowing humour is a bit obnoxious but it's a lot of fun, and Reynolds, with his likeability and swagger, was born to play the title role.

  • Directed by: Dan Mazer
  • Written by: John Phillips
  • Cast: Robert De Niro, Zac Efron, Zoey Deutch

Recently widowed (and aptly-named) Dick (De Niro) collars his straight-arrow grandson Jason (Efron) to drive him to Florida so he can get laid. Cruel, lazily scripted and spineless effort from British director Mazer, which tries and fails to redeem its relentlessly crass gags with an unconvincing sweet-natured ending.

  • US
  • 100 min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Peter Sohn
  • Cast: Voices of Lucas Neff, John Lithgow, Frances McDormand, Neil Patrick Harris, Judy Greer, Bill Hader

Set in a world in which the cataclysmic asteroid that wiped out the dinosaurs had actually missed Earth and let them roam in peace, it's the tale of young Arlo (Ochoa), an apatosaurus who gets separated from his family and who teams up with mutt-like human boy Spot (Bright.) Debut director Sohn doesn't quite lift it to Pixar's heights but his voice work steals the show in this likeable kids' adventure.

  • PG
  • Directed by: Rob Letterman
  • Written by: Darren Lemke, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, R Stine
  • Cast: Jack Black, Amy Ryan, Dylan Minnette, Odeya Rush,

Teenager Zach (Minnette) develops a crush on his home-schooled neighbour Hannah (Rush), whose mysterious father (Black) keeps her locked up. This greatest-hits adaptation of RL Stine's horror stories unleashing a host of fan-favourite monsters instead of focusing on just one; it's pacey and enjoyable with Black on fine comic form, and the teen trio are likeable.

How To Be Single

How To Be Single
  • 2016
  • US
  • Directed by: Christian Ditter
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, Rebel Wilson

Comedy about life and love, set in New York City. It's not a classic NYC romcom though: it's about learning how to be single.

  • 12A
  • Directed by: David O Russell
  • Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro

Joy Mangano (Lawrence) is a young mother coping with her dysfunctional family; the story traces her invention and development of the Miracle Mop. Russell's screwball drama never really finds its tone and although Lawrence is probably too young, she plays Joy with gusto; only now and again does it rise to the heights of Russell's earlier work.

Peter (Miller) is a 12 year old orphan living in London during the Blitz when he's snatched away to Neverland by pirates acting on behalf of Blackbeard (Jackman). Messy, pantomimish and full of incongruous ideas; the spirited and likeable Miller is the only thing about it worth watching.

Point Break

  • Cast: Luke Bracey, Ray Winstone, Edgar Ramirez

Adrenaline junkie Johnny (Bracey) joins the FBI and is put on the trail of the Robin Hood-ish Bodhi (Ramirez) and his gang of stunt-performing merry men. Pointless remake of Bigelow's fondly-remembered 1991 original, with neither subtext nor characterisation, and stunts that resemble adverts for energy drinks.

  • 2016

  • Cast: Lily James, Sam Riley, Bella Heathcote, Matt Smith, Emma Greenwell

Elizabeth Bennet (James) and her sisters live in Regency England, which is experiencing a plague of the undead; luckily she has fighting skills learned in China (eh?). James, Riley as Mr Darcy and the rest are all good fun, but it feels like a decent Austen adaptation weighed down with superfluous zombies.

  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Leonardo DiCaprio, Will Poulter

Hugh Glass (DiCaprio) is a fur trapper and frontiersman who, after being attacked by a bear, is left for dead by colleage John Fitzgerald (Hardy). An audacious, immersive and highly accomplished tale of how true grit can overcome pure hell, with excellent performances, especially from DiCaprio.

  • Written by: Greg Coolidge, Phil Hay, Matt Manfredi
  • Cast: Olivia Munn, Kevin Hart, Ice Cube

Surly Atlanta cop James (Cube) takes his bumbling soon-to-be brother-in-law Ben to Miami on the trail of drug dealers. Munn is appealing as a no-nonsense cop but it's all painfully lazy and complacent, and not nearly as funny as it thinks it is.

Adonis (Jordan) is the illegitimate son of deceased boxing legend Apollo Creed, who acquires a coach and father figure in the shape of Rocky Balboa (oh come on, you know who). Coogler injects heart, wit and personality into a stirring revival, with beautifully choreographed fights and real poignancy.

Joy, known as Ma (Larson), has been held captive in a shed for seven years by a man referred to as Old Nick (Bridgers). Her five year old son Jack (Tremblay) has never known anywhere else. Their journey to freedom is gripping and emotionally fraught, and Tremblay and Larson are excellent.

  • Cast: Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, John Leguizamo

Kate (Fey) and Maura (Poehler) are close but contrasting siblings who return to the family home to sort out their childhood knick-knacks. Shamelessly silly and simplistic, it's packed with gags; if at times things feel a little desperate, there are some genuinely hilarious set-pieces and Poehler in particular elevates it beyond a whole-lotta-crazy.

  • Cast: Francesca Capaldi, Madisyn Shipman, Noah Schnapp

Charlie Brown (Schnapp) is an anxious schoolboy who wants to impress a cute red-haired girl, but only his inspirational dog Snoopy can show him the way. Reverential, crowd-pleasing animation which scores by keeping the stakes small and the scale personal, with some exhilarating set-pieces as Snoopy pursues his Red Baron nemesis.

McCarthy's tale of how the Boston Globe's investigation team unearthed cases of sexual abuse and cover-ups within the Catholic church is up there with All the President's Men, with a fine cast (Keaton, McAdams, Ruffalo, Tucci) serving a nuanced, complex script: no one, except the victims, is entirely blameless. Remarkable.

From the ashes of the Empire, the villainous First Order rises up to destroy Luke Skywalker (Hamill) – but where is he? Fans can rejoice: Episode VII is sensational and surprisingly emotional, with a finely-crafted script and effects that never overpower the performances. Star Wars is back in a big way.

Derek Zoolander (Stiller) is living in the New Jersey woods as a 'hermit crab' after the collapse of his centre for 'kids who can't read good' and the death of his wife, but then he and former rival Hansel (Wilson) are drawn into a plot. Chaotic, scattershot, largely laugh-free sequel to the fondly-remembered 2001 original.
