  • 2016
  • US
  • 105 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Dan Trachtenberg
  • Cast: Mary Elizabeth Winstead, John Goodman, John Gallagher Jr.

Michelle (Winstead) crashes her car and wakes up in a bunker belonging to survivalist Howard (Goodman), who tells her there's been a chemical attack above ground. Tense-as-hell sidequel to 2008 alien invasion movie Cloverfield, with a sparkling script and outstanding performances, especially from Goodman.

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.

Bastille Day

Bastille Day
  • 2016
  • Directed by: James Watkins
  • Written by: Andrew Baldwin
  • Cast: Idris Elba, Richard Madden, Kelly Reilly

Sean Briar (Elba) is a tough CIA agent who uncovers a bomb plot in Paris. Frenetic thriller which comes across like Elba's audition for 007; the France terror attacks of November 2015 make it seem ill-timed but it's fast, furious and (sometimes unintentionally) funny.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
  • 2016
  • US
  • 151 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Zack Snyder
  • Cast: Henry Cavill, Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Amy Adams, Jesse Eisenberg

Superman (Cavill) faces off against Batman (Affleck) in the aftermath of the near-destruction of Metropolis at the end of Man of Steel. Despite a pretty strong screenplay, the two leads are no more than functional and Wonder Woman (Gadot) is a damp squib. But if the film lacks Marvel's sense of fun, in its fidgety and fearful way it feels entirely relevant.

  • Cast: Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Emily VanCamp, Don Cheadle, Jeremy Renner, Chadwick Boseman, Paul Bettany, Elizabeth Olsen, Paul Rudd, Frank Grillo, Daniel Brühl, William Hurt

When world leaders demand that the Avengers operate under UN supervision, the team splits. If you haven't seen previous instalments it will make no sense, but if you have, all the plot points bear bittersweet fruit, in a brilliant combination of hectic action and one liners with intimate, heartbreaking moments.

  • 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.

New York investment banker Davis (Gyllenhaal) starts behaving erratically after the death of his wife in a car crash, but then he becomes friends with customer service operator Karen (Watts). Earnest but trite look at bereavement with a clichéd script and uniformly overwrought performances.

Despite The Falling Snow
  • 2016
  • UK, Canada
  • 93 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Shamim Sarif
  • Written by: Shamim Sarif
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Charles Dance, Antje Traue

In Moscow 1959, a spy named Katya (Ferguson) romances a young Kremlin bureaucrat (Reid); in Moscow 1992, Katya's niece Lauren (also Ferguson) seeks the truth about her aunt via elderly Alexander (Dance). Humdrum spy-themed romance with lots of long walks in the snow, unhappy reveals and crap dialogue, which never build to the long-promised payoff.

Allegiant

  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Zoë Kravitz

Tris (Woodley), Four (James) and friends scale the walls and trek beyond the radioactive wasteland, only to encounter the Bureau of Genetic Warfare and its boss (Daniels). The younger actors struggle with underwritten roles, Woodley in particular, with Tris becoming less interesting with each movie. Plodding, humourless and repetitive.

Eddie the Eagle

  • Directed by: Dexter Fletcher
  • Cast: Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Christopher Walken

Eddie Edwards (Egerton) is determined to be a ski jumper, but his only hope lies through boozy, washed-up former star Bronson (Jackman). Feelgood dramedy more 'inspired by' than 'based on' the real-life story of a plucky loser, with Egerton delightfully innocent as the hapless Eddie, and some thrilling ski jumping scenes.

  • Cast: Helen Mirren, Aaron Paul, Alan Rickman

When a military operation to bring in a radicalised Englishwoman turns into a planned drone strike, commanding officer Katherine Powell (Mirren) and her colleagues have to juggle military necessity with saving civilian lives. Nerve-shredding and thought-provoking against-the-clock thriller which probes the moral grey areas of drone warfare.

Millionaire Christian Black (Wayans) tries to coax naive student Hannah (Hawk) into signing a contract for kinky sexual goings-on. Wayans-scripted parody of the erotic blockbuster.

Popular student Laura (Debnam-Carey) befriends class weirdo Marina (Ahlers) who has no Facebook friends at all. Things go downhill from there. Horribly misguided attempt at a horror flick about social media with unintentional LOLs aplenty; some creepy effects aside, it's stale and unoriginal and the character of Marina is flimsy to the point of offensive.

Football hooligan Nobby (Baron Cohen) discovers that his long-lost brother Sebastian (Strong) is a suave intelligence operative: cue wacky hijinks. A weak satirical thread about Tory scaremongering isn't enough to redeem the outdated laddish humour and the fact that Nobby is one of Baron Cohen's most forgettable characters.

In this latest offering from the Coen brothers, Eddie Mannix (Brolin) is an MGM studio executive with a reputation for keeping the stars in line and preventing any employees from embarrassing the company. A witty and whimsical gang-show featuring an over-qualified cast doing extravagant turns unencumbered by narrative purpose.

In this first-person shooter designed to look and feel like a video game, Henry wakes up on a surgery table to find himself being transformed into a cybernetic super-soldier. The non-stop mayhem, destruction and bloody mutilation is not likely to win over anyone who likes plot and characterisation or dislikes casual misogyny.

How To Be Single
  • 2016
  • US

  • Directed by: Christian Ditter
  • Cast: Dakota Johnson, Alison Brie, Leslie Mann, Rebel Wilson

This female-fronted comedy about life and love is set in New York City. When Alice (Johnson) is faced with singledom, Robin (Wilson) teaches her how to let her hair down. The film follows their friendship, as well as the stories of Meg (Mann), who makes the decision to get pregnant via an anonymous sperm donor, and Lucy (Brie), a woman obsessed with online dating. Ultimately, it leaves you wanting more Mann (so hilarious is her performance), though the message of self-love is welcome and well-receieved.

  • Directed by: Cedric Nicolas-Troyan
  • Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain

This follow-up / prequel / sequel to Snow White and the Huntsman manages to wrap another story around Snow White’s, without need for a Kristen Stewart cameo. This time, the focus is on Chris Hemsworth’s Eric, exploring how he became a Huntsman. Directed by debutant Cedric Nicolas-Troyan – the story intricately winds past and present together, but unfortunately, this franchise feels like it has run its course.

You know the story: boy (Sethi) left in woods, adopted by wolves (Nyong'o and Esposito), mentored by panther (Kingsley), befriended by bear (Murray), hunted by tiger (Elba, terrifying). Favreau and his team successfully retool the story with stunning CGI, and a script with heart, soul and spirit. A feelgood delight.

When Master Shifu (Hoffman) retires, Po (Black) is nonplussed to be promoted to teacher-trainer; then demon water buffalo Kai (Simmons) starts raising a zombie army and Po is reunited with his dad (Cranston)! Black is as lovable as ever, and with the excellent cast, frantic action, sight gags, cute baby pandas and stunning effects, it's a pity the script is a bit humdrum.

When the funeral of a British Prime Minister is attacked by terrorists, Secret Service agent Mike Banning (Butler) launches himself into the line of fire and is unfortunately not killed. Butler does the action-man/asshole schtick in London this time, with the filmmakers dolloping on extra xenophobia, racial stereotypes and right-wing tub-thumping.

  • Directed by: Jeff Nichols
  • Written by: Jeff Nichols
  • Cast: Adam Driver, Kirsten Dunst, Joel Edgerton

A father goes on the run with his son after he discovers his boy has mysterious powers in this film, which harks back to the grounded 1980s sci-fi of Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter. It's filled with beautiful shots of the Texan dusk, and Shannon is compelling in his role as father Roy. The revelation of what's really going on, though, is lamely conceived and cheaply mounted, and it's hard not to feel cheated.

In 1970s New York, jazz legend Miles Davis (Cheadle) is visited by journalist Dave Braden (McGregor) and soon the two are essentially engaged in a buddy caper to retrieve a precious master tape. Despite the many biopic clichés, Cheadle's directorial debut is an entertaining passion project and both he and McGregor make an enjoyable double act.

Fourteen years on, Toula (Vardalos) is back, still married to husband Ian (Corbett) and with a sulky daughter (Kampouris) in addition to her ever-present family. Lurchingly formulaic and stuffed with more story than it can handle, it has its moments but it can hardly hope to meet the success of the original film.

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.

A Puritan family in 17th century New England is threatened by dark forces when their baby son is stolen from their isolated farm. Gripping, dread-filled debut feature from Eggers; Dickie is superb as a mother on the edge, Taylor-Joy gives a pitch-perfect and dedicated performance as the eldest daughter and it's nerve-shredding, exquisitely crafted cinema.
