Adrift

Adrift
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 36min
  • Directed by: Baltasar Kormákur
  • Cast: Shailene Woodley, Sam Claflin, Grace Palmer

Tami (Woodley) wakes up in her yacht to find water seeping into it, and she and boyfriend Richard (Claflin) must work together to save it. Woodley and Claflin convincingly convey that first flush of romance and it’s a real-life survival story with a twist which may spoil some people’s enjoyment.

The First Purge

The First Purge
  • 2018
  • USA
  • 1h 37min
  • 18
  • Directed by: Gerard McMurray
  • Cast: Marisa Tomei, Melonie Diaz, Y'lan Noe

No-nonsense, incendiary B-movie prequel to the franchise, in which the government tries out the whole ‘purge’ idea for the first time. Noel and Scott Davis are fine leads, and it makes great use of horror tropes and characters to bust racist myths. Unsubtle, but charged and effective.

Hotel Artemis

Hotel Artemis
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: Drew Pearce
  • Cast: Jodie Foster, Sofia Boutella, Dave Bautista

Future-set sci-fi following a nurse (Foster) who runs an emergency room for criminals only in a riot-torn Los Angeles. Despite some clunky dialogue here and there, this stylish noir is befitting of Foster's manifold talents.

The Incredibles 2

The Incredibles 2
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 5min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Brad Bird
  • Cast: Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson, Bob Odenkirk

In this sequel to the 2004 original, Supers are still forbidden but Elastigirl (Hunter) gets to go up against a supervillain while husband Bob (Nelson) minds the kids. It looks great and the voice cast is excellent, but it feels dated and the set-pieces become tiring.

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 8min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: JA Bayona
  • Cast: Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeff Goldblum, B. D. Wong, Toby Jones, Rafe Spall

Raptor wrangler Owen (Pratt) and his ex, Claire (Howard) return to Isla Nublar to rescue the dinosaurs from an impending volcanic eruption. Lots of ideas and some earnest lessons about conservation can’t hide that the franchise is running out of oomph, but it’s still fun.

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again

Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again
  • 2018

  • PG
  • Directed by: Ol Parker
  • Cast: Christine Baranski, Jessica Keenan Wynn, Julie Walters, Alexa Davies, Pierce Brosnan, Jeremy Irvine, Colin Firth, Hugh Skinner, Stellan Skarsgård, Josh Dylan, Cher, Dominic Cooper, Andy García

Sequel to the feel-good ABBA musical Mamma Mia! Despite its absurdities and shoe-horning of ABBA songs, at its heart is a touching mother-daughter love story and an irresistible esprit de corps.

Mission: Impossible - Fallout

Mission: Impossible - Fallout
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
  • Cast: Rebecca Ferguson, Henry Cavill, Tom Cruise

The sixth entry in the film series based on the 60s TV show is the first to be directed by a returning director (Christopher McQuarrie). Insane stunts from Tom Cruise guaranteed.

Ocean's 8

Ocean's 8
  • 2018

  • 1h 50min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Gary Ross
  • Cast: Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna, Helena Bonham Carter

Debbie Ocean (Bullock) sets in motion a plan to swipe a precious diamond necklace, and with pal Lou (Blanchett) puts together a gang of female crooks. The performances are great fun but Ross’s anonymous direction doesn’t add much, and it’s a bit let down by a needless subplot and unnecessary cameos.

Patrick

Patrick
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 34min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Mandie Fletcher
  • Cast: Beattie Edmondson, Ed Skrein, Jennifer Saunders

Sarah (Edmondson) inherits a pug, Patrick, from her grandmother, and the trouble-making little scamp turns her life upside down. How much you enjoy it is directly proportional to your tolerance of canine reaction shots, but it’s so relentlessly light and breezy that it wins you over even if if it never actually makes you laugh.

Peter Rabbit

Peter Rabbit
  • 2018
  • US / Australia
  • 1h 33min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Will Gluck
  • Cast: Rose Byrne, Domhnall Gleeson, Sam Neill, Daisy Ridley, Elizabeth Debicki, Margot Robbie, James Corden

Mischievous bunny Peter (Corden) and his sisters Flopsy (Robbie), Mopsy (Debicki) and Cotton-Tail (Ridley) contend with Thomas (Gleeson), an uptight cottage garden owner. The interweaving of CGI animals with live action is flawless, Gleeson proves to have fine comedy chops and there’s a lot of slapstick, but anyone looking for Beatrix Potter will be sorely disappointed.

The Secret of Marrowbone

The Secret of Marrowbone
  • 2018
  • Spain
  • 1h 50min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Sergio G Sánchez
  • Cast: George MacKay, Anya Taylor-Joy, Charlie Heaton

Jack (MacKay) cares for his siblings and ailing mother; when his mother dies, he and local librarian Allie (Taylor-Joy) try to protect the family by creating the illusion that she’s still alive. A wealth of detail in this haunted house story makes up for a lack of scares, and it’s a sober, well-constructed riff on genre tropes.

Sherlock Gnomes

Sherlock Gnomes
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

  • US / UK
  • 1h 32min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Raja Gosnell
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Chris "Ludacris" Bridges, Natasha Lyonne, Alan Cumming

NYPD Rottweiler Max (Ludacris) goes undercover with FBI agent Frank (Arnett) at the Canini Invitational, a prestigious Vegas dog show. Arnett gives an uncharacteristically lacklustre turn, although Lyonne takes being the love interest in her stride, but despite spirited voice acting it’s both overly silly and vaguely moralistic.

Sicario 2: Soldado

Sicario 2: Soldado
  • 2018
  • US/Italy
  • 15
  • Directed by: Stefano Sollima
  • Cast: Josh Brolin, Benicio Del Toro, Isabela Moner

Federal agent Graver (Brolin) brings his operative Alejandro (Del Toro) back into the fold as the operation shifts from drug-smuggling to human trafficking. This world-weary sequel has the authenticity of the first film but is more predictable, and it never really convinces us to care about the issues it prioritises.

Skyscraper

Skyscraper
  • 2018
  • US
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Rawson Marshall Thurber
  • Cast: Dwayne Johnson, Pablo Schreiber, Neve Campbell

Will (Johnson) is an FBI veteran who lost a leg, married his nurse (Campbell) and is a safety assessor for the tallest building in the world—which is then attacked by terrorists. With inane dialogue, substandard Euro-villains and preposterous set-pieces, it takes on two classic predecessors (Die Hard and The Towering Inferno) and loses.

Tag

Tag
  • 2018
  • US
  • Directed by: Jeff Tomsic
  • Cast: Jeremy Renner, Annabelle Wallis, Isla Fisher

Five friends (Hamm, Helms, Johnson, Buress, Renner) compete every year in a bruising game of tag, begun three decades earlier. Fitfully amusing, but neither grounded enough to be affecting nor ludicrous enough to be genuinely funny, it mostly takes off when Fisher has the spotlight.
