Alita: Battle Angel

Alita: Battle Angel
  • 2019
  • US
  • 2h 2min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Robert Rodriguez
  • Cast: Rosa Salazar, Christoph Waltz, Jennifer Connelly, Mahershala Ali, Ed Skrein, Jackie Earle Haley, Keean Johnson

Three years after a savage war, Dr Dyson Ido (Waltz) finds a cyborg head on a scrapheap, which he gives to a body and names Alita. The story is a bit of a grab-bag of ideas, but Salazar shines via motion capture as a truly splendid teen action heroine.

Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Anna Boden, Ryan Fleck
  • Cast: Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Jude Law, Gemma Chan, Ben Mendelsohn, Robert Kazinsky

Danvers (Larson) is a fighter with the Kree Starforce who finds herself on Earth, and encountering Agent Nick Fury (Jackson). The storyline doesn’t give Larson a lot of time to establish a persona, but her charm, style and ass-kicking make her Marvel’s coolest customer and whatever it lacks in heart, it makes up for with sheer likeability.

Cold Pursuit

Cold Pursuit
  • 2019
  • UK/Norway/US/Canada
  • 1h 58min
  • Directed by: Hans Petter Moland
  • Cast: Emmy Rossum, Liam Neeson, Laura Dern

Nels (Neeson) is a snowplough driver who keeps his small fictional Colorado town moving, but when his teenage son (Richardson) turns up dead, he goes out for revenge. Two hours of Neeson beating, strangling and shooting people, with double handfuls of racism and sexism, make for an aimless, bigoted, dumb waste of time.

Escape Room

Escape Room
  • 2019
  • South Africa / US
  • 1h 40min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Adam Robitel
  • Cast: Deborah Ann Woll, Taylor Russell, Logan Miller

A group of people find themselves solving a series of deadly puzzles in an escape room. The acting is convincing and the whole thing is pleasingly put together, but it’s also ridiculously silly, and you may find that if you can solve the puzzles sooner than the characters can, your patience may be tested.

Fighting with My Family

Fighting with My Family
  • 2019
  • UK/US
  • 1h 48min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Stephen Merchant
  • Cast: Florence Pugh, Lena Headey, Nick Frost, Jack Lowden, Vince Vaughn, Dwayne Johnson

Based on the true story of WWE champion Saraya-Jade Bevis, aka Paige (Pugh), following her journey from dismal Norwich via Florida boot camp to the stadium. Pugh and Lowden as her brother are good, but the innuendo is crude, the characterisation shallow and the attempt to depict Saraya’s rise as some kind of feminist revolution is unconvincing.

Fisherman’s Friends

Fisherman’s Friends
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Chris Foggin
  • Cast: Tuppence Middleton, James Purefoy, Daniel Mays, David Hayman

Danny (Mays) is a music industry talent handler who arrives in Cornwall on a stag night, and discovers the titular (real-life) folk singers and signs them. Mays is a watchable lead and generates rom-com chemistry with Middleton, the daughter of the group’s grouchy Jim (Purefoy). An undemanding yarn with nevertheless the power to do some cockle-warming.

Five Feet Apart

Five Feet Apart
  • 2019
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Justin Baldoni
  • Cast: Haley Lu Richardson, Cole Sprouse, Claire Forlani

Stella (Richardson) is a young woman with cystic fibrosis who falls for another CF patient, Will (Sprouse). A smart script and touching performances but with a fumbled, melodramatic ending; still, it’s a sensitive , heartfelt and often moving look at what it’s like to live with this life-threatening condition.

Green Book

Green Book
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 10min
  • Directed by: Peter Farrelly
  • Cast: Viggo Mortensen, Mahershala Ali, Linda Cardellini

Don Shirley (Ali), virtuoso pianist, is chauffeured around the American South in 1962 by his Italian-American driver Tony (Mortensen), and much learning ensues. It’s beautifully made and very worthy, but far too gentle and broad to be effective; Tony, rather than Don, is the heart of the story and it lacks bite.

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World
  • 2019

  • Directed by: Dean DeBlois
  • Cast: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett, Craig Ferguson, Jonah Hill, Kit Harington, Justin Rupple, Kristen Wiig, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, F. Murray Abraham, Gerard Butler

Hiccup (voiced by Baruchel) is now a chief with growing responsibilities, while Toothless the dragon is in love; but then dragon hunter Grimmel (Abraham) is determined to spoil people’s fun. The franchise is running out of steam; there’s too much going on and the central bond is obscured.

Instant Family
  • 2019
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Sean Anders
  • Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Rose Byrne, Isabela Moner

Pete (Wahlberg) and Elie (Byrne) are a couple who decide to try fostering children, and they take in teenage Lizzy (Moner) and her siblings. A good vehicle for Wahlberg’s blue-collar charm, with humour that feels earned and details that have the smack of real experience. Manipulative but likable.

  • UK
  • 2h
  • PG
  • Directed by: Joe Cornish
  • Cast: Louis Ashbourne Serkis, Dean Chaumoo, Tom Taylor, Rhianna Dorris, Angus Imrie, Patrick Stewart, Rebecca Ferguson

Alex (Serkis), escaping from school bullies, finds a sword sticking out of a cement post which he and mate Bedders (Chaumoo) decide is Excalibur. Entertaining, but with too many unanswered questions, and Ferguson as Morgana is wasted for most of the movie. Shame, because the kids are terrific.

  • US / Australia / Denmark
  • 1h 46min
  • U
  • Directed by: Rob Schrab
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Elizabeth Banks, Will Arnett, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Offerman, Alison Brie, Stephanie Beatriz

Despite living in the Mad Max-style nightmare of Apocalypseburg, Emmet (Pratt) is still his cheery self—until his friends are kidnapped by the alien queen (Haddish). There are lots of good jokes and plenty of fun, but it’s not quite up to the magical original.

The Prodigy

  • 2019

  • Directed by: Nicholas McCarthy
  • Cast: Taylor Schilling, Jackson Robert Scott, Colm Feore

Sarah (Schilling) has a child on the night a multiple murderer is killed by the police; eight years later, she begins to suspect son has the soul of a killer. There are no surprises, but Schilling, and Scott as the troubled Miles, are better than they need to be, and it brings welcome restraint to a silly story.

  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 57min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Bob Persichetti, Peter Ramsey, Rodney Rothman
  • Cast: Shameik Moore, Jake Johnson, Nicolas Cage

Miles Morales (Moore) is an average kid living in a New York where Spider-Man exists, but he then gets bitten himself by a radioactive spider and starts developing familiar abilities. Hugely imaginative animated adventure which dispenses with the familiar origin story and looks like a comic come to life. Hilarious, original and exhilarating.

Adelaide (Nyong’o) and Gabe (Duke) arrive at their holiday home with their children, only to be confronted by a mysteriously familiar foursome. Peele’s follow up to Get Out is a neat twist on the home invasion story, with beautifully executed set pieces, and Nyong’o is phenomenal as both protagonist and chief aggressor. Fresh and arresting.

What Men Want

What Men Want
  • 2019
  • US
  • Directed by: Adam Shankman
  • Cast: Taraji P. Henson, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Max Greenfield

Ali (Henson) is a sports agent who can suddenly understand the thoughts of her male co-workers. It fails to make the most of the battle of the sexes premise, becoming a predictable rom-com, but Henson gives an impressively physical performance and Badu has fun as the wacky psychic who starts the whole debacle.
