21 Bridges

21 Bridges
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 39min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Brian Kirk
  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Taylor Kitsch, JK Simmons

Andre Davis (Boseman) is a Manhattan detective who teams up with Boston narcotics detective Miller on an investigation of a couple of cop killers. It’s an action-packed blood-bath with well-directed chase sequences, which nevertheless struggle against a predictable and cliché-ridden screenplay.

Abominable

Abominable
  • 2019
  • US / China
  • 1h 37min
  • U
  • Directed by: Jill Culton
  • Cast: Chloe Bennet, Albert Tsai, Tenzing Norgay Trainor, Eddie Izzard, Sarah Paulson, Tsai Chin, Michelle Wong

A cute, blue-eyed Yeti is found hiding on the roof of a Shanghai apartment building, and teenager Yi (voiced by Bennett) and her friends Jin (Trainor) and Peng (Tsai) decide to help him get back to the Himalayas. Enjoyable, smartly paced and gorgeously animated; hardly very original, but full of comic relief and heart.

The Addams Family

The Addams Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 27min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Conrad Vernon, Greg Tiernan
  • Cast: Oscar Isaac, Charlize Theron, Chloë Grace Moretz, Finn Wolfhard, Nick Kroll, Snoop Dogg, Bette Midler, Allison Janney

The titular family, Morticia (Theron), Gomez (Isaac), Wednesday (Moretz) and Pugsley (Wolfhard), are targeted by reality TV host Margaux Needler (Janney). The voice cast is decent and the style pays homage to Charles Addams' drawings, but it misses the darkly Gothic spirit of both the original and the Barry Sonnenfeld films, being disconcertingly family-friendly.

Black and Blue
  • 2019

  • Directed by: Deon Taylor
  • Cast: Mike Colter, Naomie Harris, Frank Grillo

Alicia (Harris) is a recently qualified police officer returning to New Orleans after serving two tours of duty in the military in Afghanistan; she’s then framed for murder by corrupt narcs. Harris is believably gutsy and isolated and while it’s not exactly subtle, it’s an effective Fugitive-style thriller with a righteous regard for neglected communities.

  • Directed by: Ridley Scott
  • Cast: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Sean Young, Edward James Olmos, M. Emmet Walsh, Daryl Hannah, William Sanderson, Brion James, Joe Turkel, Joanna Cassidy

A tough cop tracks down a group of malfunctioning androids in this gritty hi-tech retread of Raymond Chandler, executed with Scott's customary visual flair, and with strong performances, especially from Ford and Hauer.

  • Written by: Andrew Onwubolu
  • Cast: Stephen Odubola, Micheal Ward, Khali Best

Timmy (Odubola) befriends Marco (Ward), but they find themselves on separate sides of an increasingly ugly gang rivalry. Rapper-turned-writer/director Onwubolu, telling a story drawn from his own upbringing, draws compelling turns from Ward and Odubola and it packs a huge punch.

  • 2019

  • Directed by: Justin Dec
  • Written by: Justin Dec
  • Cast: Elizabeth Lail, Anne Winters, Charlie McDermott

Quinn (Lail) is a young nurse who gets an app for her phone that predicts the date of your death. Daft debut feature from writer-director Dec, in which a few twists on genre formulae and some comic relief aren’t enough to redeem the silliness and general lack of logic.

  • Cast: Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran, Cliff Curtis

Danny (McGregor) is still recovering from the events at the Overlook Hotel, when his young friend Abra (Curran) is targeted by an evil cult led by Rose the Hat (Ferguson). McGregor is affecting, Curran is impressive and Ferguson is deeply sinister, but jarring imagery and laboured references to The Shining break the spell.

  • 2019
  • US

  • Directed by: Chris Buck, Jennifer Lee
  • Cast: Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel, Josh Gad, Jonathan Groff

Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) head off on a dangerous journey after Elsa hears voices calling her to a distant land. The plot is less involving than the character interaction, but Olaf (Gad) is the comedic highlight and while it may be less compelling than the original, it's got all the ingredients for a hit.

Gemini Man

Gemini Man
  • 2019

  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ang Lee
  • Cast: Will Smith, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Clive Owen

Henry (Smith) is a 51-year-old assassin who develops a conscience, but the powers that be want to retire him; then baddie businessman Varris (Owen) sends a 31-year-old clone of Henry after him. The characters are totally underdeveloped and the effects (include Lee’s favourite high frame rate) make it look cheap. Smith is as watchable as ever, but that’s all.

  • Directed by: Bill Condon
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Helen Mirren, Nell Williams

Roy (McKellen) is a con man who targets wealthy widows, and when he targets Betty (Mirren) her son Steven (Tovey) becomes suspicious. It’s a blend of several genres which don’t quite fuse and is ultimately diverting but far from essential.

Harriet

Harriet
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Kasi Lemmons
  • Cast: Cynthia Erivo, Leslie Odom Jr, Janelle Monae

The true story of abolitionist and activist Harriet Tubman (Erivo), who escaped from slavery and carried out numerous rescue missions to help family, friends and others. Erivo brings gravity and steeliness to a rather formulaic and superficial script, but at least it’ll get Tubman’s heroism more widely known.

  • Directed by: Todd Phillips
  • Cast: Joaquin Phoenix, Zazie Beetz, Robert De Niro

Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) is an unsuccessful clown who wants to be a comedian, but he gradually turns to evil. This dizzying origin story about Batman’s nemesis is like an ode to 1970s New York City; Phoenix is astonishing and Phillips’s grave vision never swerves. Unmissable.

  • Directed by: Rian Johnson
  • Cast: Daniel Craig, Chris Evans, Ana de Armas, Jamie Lee Curtis, Michael Shannon, Don Johnson, Toni Collette, Lakeith Stanfield, Katherine Langford, Jaeden Martell, Christopher Plummer

When mystery writer Harlan Thrombey (Plummer) is found with his throat slit, puffed-up private detective Benoit Blanc (Craig) gets on the case. A wickedly knowing, flamboyantly bitchy take on the whodunnit, with a great cast, bags of style and a splendidly outrageous comic turn from Craig. Bloody good fun.

  • 2019
  • UK / US
  • 1h 43min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Paul Feig
  • Cast: Emilia Clarke, Henry Golding, Emma Thompson, Michelle Yeoh

Kate (Clarke) is a Yugoslavian immigrant whose life is going downhill until she meets the mysterious bike-riding Tom (Golding), who seems too good to be true. Thompson and Kimmings’ script is a saccharine romantic fantasy and George Michael’s music isn’t always incorporated effectively, but its heart is in the right place.

  • 2h 32min
  • Directed by: James Mangold
  • Cast: Matt Damon, Christian Bale, Jon Bernthal, Caitriona Balfe, Tracy Letts, Josh Lucas, Noah Jupe, Remo Girone, Ray McKinnon

Car designer Carroll Shelby (Damon) teams up with mechanic/driver Ken Miles (Bale) in the story of how Ford tried to beat Ferrari at Le Mans in 1966. The race scenes are directed with thrilling energy, and if scenes between Miles and his wife Mollie (Balfe) are uneven, it’s an effective story about dreamers who risked everything.

  • Cast: Lupita Nyong'o, Josh Gad, Alexander England

Miss Caroline (Nyong’o) is a sunny primary school teacher who leads a school trip to the local farm with accompanying adult Dave (England), only to encounter a zombie outbreak. Nyong’o completely steals the show as the ukulele-playing teacher, but England is charming enough, and while it lays the laughs on thick, it doesn’t scrimp on the horror.

  • Directed by: Roland Emmerich
  • Cast: Patrick Wilson, Luke Evans, Woody Harrelson

The story of the Battle of Midway, the WWII encounter that shifted the war in the Pacific in the Americans’ favour. Emmerich assembles a solid if rather uninspiring cast, the CGI-honed battle sequences are competent but not exactly nerve-shredding and the characters are two-dimensional.

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood
  • 2019
  • US / UK
  • 2h 45min
  • Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
  • Cast: James Marsden, Margot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio

Past-his-peak actor Rick Dalton (DiCaprio) and his stuntman and buddy Cliff Booth (Pitt) are living in Hollywood in 1969; then Sharon Tate (Robbie) and her husband Roman Polanski move in next door. Compelling and provocative, but uneven; for all the fine performances, black comedy and savage violence, Tarantino may have bitten off more than he can chew.

Farmageddon: A Shaun the Sheep Movie
  • 2019

  • Directed by: Richard Starzak
  • Cast: Justin Fletcher, John Sparkes

Shaun and his gang of sheep are getting up to mischief that puts them at odds with sensible sheepdog Bitzer; then an alien craft arrives. This dialogue-free pristinely shambolic stop-motion romp is, in its deft way, a crowd-pleaser for everyone, with enough Close Encounters references to keep parents interested.

In present-day Mexico City, Sarah Connor (Hamilton) forms fractious ties with augmented future soldier Grace (Davis) to protect Dani (Reyes) from a cyborg (Luna). Miller knows Hamilton is his trump card, and this female-focus reset brings heart, horror, focus and ferocity back to the series. Refreshing..

  • 1h 38min

In a Pentecostal congregation in the remote Appalachians, Mara (Englert) has promised herself to one man but has been having an affair with nonbeliever Augie (Mann), son of the local gas station attendant (Colman). Despite a pulpy set-up and a melodramatic third act, it pulls off its more outlandish elements with sheer conviction and talent.
