1917

1917
  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 57min
  • Directed by: Sam Mendes
  • Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman, Mark Strong, Andrew Scott, Richard Madden, Claire Duburcq, Colin Firth, Benedict Cumberbatch

Lance Corporals Schofield (MacKay) and Blake (Chapman) are given the job of hand-delivering a message to another unit, across the mud and misery of the trenches. It suffers from simplistic dialogue and flat characterisation, but it’s visually impressive and a respectable, heartfelt tribute to the sacrifice of WWI.

Bad Boys for Life

Bad Boys For Life
  • 2020
  • US
  • 2h 3min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adil El Arbi, Bilall Fallah
  • Cast: Will Smith, Martin Lawrence, Vanessa Hudgens, Alexander Ludwig, Charles Melton, Paola Núñez, Kate del Castillo, Nicky Jam, Joe Pantoliano, Thomas Brag

Mike (Smith) and Marcus (Lawrence) are back, tracking down a mysterious assassin with the help of younger colleagues. The best film in the franchise so far, it’s full of the expected action but also develops the relationship between the leads. Great fun, and the most purely entertaining movie Smith has made in a while.

Brahms: The Boy II

Brahms: The Boy II
  • 2020
  • 1h 26min
  • 15
  • Directed by: William Brent Bell
  • Cast: Katie Holmes, Owain Yeoman, Christopher Convery

Liza (Holmes) is the victim of a violent home invasion in her London flat, after which she moves to the countryside; but then her traumatised young son (Convery) finds a doll called Brahms, which gets a hold over him. An improvement on the original in every way, with simple but effective jump-scares and better acting.

The Call of the Wild

The Call of the Wild
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Chris Sanders
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Dan Stevens, Omar Sy, Karen Gillan, Bradley Whitford, Colin Woodell

Buck is a dog who is kidnapped in California and then has adventures all over the north, including with loner John Thornton (Ford). Big-hearted adaptation of Jack London’s classic 1903 novella, with skilful CGI and fine action sequences and a tear-jerking turn from Ford as both actor and narrator.

Dark Waters

Dark Waters
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 6min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Todd Haynes
  • Cast: Anne Hathaway, Mark Ruffalo, Tim Robbins

Robert (Ruffalo) is a corporate defence attorney who switches sides when a friend’s cattle are ravaged by diseases caused by chemical run-off from a DuPont plant. The spiralling narrative sucks you in, but it’s rather lacking in conviction, idiosyncrasy and suspense (Hathaway is wasted as Robert’s crotchety wife.) Still, interesting and pertinent.

Dolittle

Dolittle
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 41min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Stephen Gaghan
  • Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Antonio Banderas, Michael Sheen, Emma Thompson, Rami Malek, John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Octavia Spencer, Tom Holland, Craig Robinson, Ralph Fiennes, Selena Gomez, Marion Cotillard

Dr Dolittle (Downey) is grieving the death of his wife Lily when a young boy (Collett) and Lady Rose (Laniado) both come to ask him for help. The plot is a barely connected bunch of scenes, action sequences are hinted at but unrealised. The worst adaptation of Hugh Lofting’s stories to date: all this talent wasted in a big furry disappointment.

Downhill

Downhill
  • 2020
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • Directed by: Nat Faxon, Jim Rash
  • Cast: Will Ferrell, Miranda Otto, Julia Louis-Dreyfus

Pete (Ferrell) and Billie (Louis-Dreyfus) are a couple whose marriage is tested when, on holiday in Austria, he flees from what he thinks is a deadly avalanche rather than protect his family. Inspired by Ruben Östlund’s Force Majeure, it’s more mainstream and accessible but also broader, less sharp and less confident.

Emma

Emma
  • 2020
  • UK
  • PG
  • Directed by: Autumn de Wilde
  • Cast: Anya Taylor-Joy, Josh O'Connor, Gemma Whelan

Emma (Taylor-Joy) is a self-important matchmaker blinded by snobbery and youthful hubris. It’s in keeping with the vogue for complex, unapologetic heroines but the comedy is rather hit and miss and it looks great. Taylor-Joy’s alert performance makes Emma her own.

The Invisible Man

The Invisible Man
  • 2020
  • US / Australia
  • Directed by: Leigh Whannell
  • Cast: Elisabeth Moss, Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer

Cecilia (Moss) flees her abusive partner, optics experimenter Adrian (Jackson-Cohen), and then hears that he’s dead; but he still seems to be around. Whannell milks minimalist set-ups for maximum effect, and Moss projects raw dread and ‘final girl’-ish fortitude. A low-budget but high-resonance exercise in sweaty-palmed suspense.

Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 54min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Jake Kasdan
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Karen Gillan, Nick Jonas, Awkwafina, Danny DeVito, Danny Glover

In the sequel to the 2017 reboot, old-timers Eddie (DeVito) and Milo (Glover) join the teens in an another video game adventure. Johnson and Awkwafina steal their scenes, although Gillan has to do too much exposition before she can get going, and while it’s a bit too similar to its predecessor it’s amiable festive fun.

Like a Boss
  • 2020

  • 1h 23min

  • Directed by: Miguel Arteta
  • Cast: Tiffany Haddish, Rose Byrne, Salma Hayek

Mia (Haddish) and Mel (Byrne) are best friends running a beauty company, which is then bought out by makeup wizard Claire (Hayek). Despite a good cast and director, there’s only so much that can be done with the weak script. It desperately wants to be funny, but isn’t sure how.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic the Hedgehog
  • 2020
  • US / Japan
  • Directed by: Jeff Fowler
  • Cast: James Marsden, Ben Schwartz, Jim Carrey, Tika Sumpter

Sonic (Schwartz) finds himself alone on Earth, on the run from the authorities, with villain Dr Robotnik (Carrey) also in pursuit. A derivative script and a rather tired performance from Carrey aside, it’s got disarming charm and cheek and Sonic is a cutely cartoonish hero.
