Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 29min
  • PG
  • Directed by: David Soren
  • Cast: Kevin Hart, Thomas Middleditch, Ed Helms

Animated superhero comedy based on the bestselling book series by Dav Pilkey. This is a film that sides with the kids, right down to its sly jabs at uncaring, cash-starved school systems and loose message about the value of laughing at yourself; and, of course, at the mere existence of a planet called Uranus.

The Dark Tower

The Dark Tower
  • 2017
  • Directed by: Nikolaj Arcel
  • Cast: Katheryn Winnick, Idris Elba, Matthew McConaughey

Gunslinger Roland (Elba) engages the help of New York teenager Jake (Taylor) in a battle to save the titular tower from the menacing Man in Black (McConaughey). Writer-director Arcel turns King’s dark book into a disappointing YA adventure with little tension or gravitas, and Elba’s charm is offset by McConaughey’s unintentionally comical impersonation of Viggo Mortensen.

Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me 3
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 30min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda
  • Cast: Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin

Gru (Carell) and new wife and fellow agent Lucy (Wiig) are ensconced with their adorable adopted daughters when supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Parker) decides to take revenge on Hollywood for neglecting him. It’s all a bit familiar but it skilfully balances kid and adult appeal with its madcap approach and embarrassment of mischievous energy.

Dunkirk

Dunkirk
  • 2017
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Christopher Nolan
  • Written by: Christopher Nolan
  • Cast: Tom Hardy, Mark Rylance, Cillian Murphy, Harry Styles

Survival story set during the battle of Dunkirk in WWII. The younger cast members acquit themselves admirably, including pop star Harry Styles; and, in its uncomfortable depiction of frightened men looking to save their own skin, this is far from straightforwardly patriotic fare. As he delivers non-stop visual audacity, once again Nolan shows himself to be a master of pure cinema.

The Emoji Movie

The Emoji Movie
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 26min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Tony Leondis
  • Cast: T. J. Miller, James Corden, Anna Faris, Maya Rudolph, Steven Wright, Jennifer Coolidge, Jake T. Austin, Christina Aguilera, Sofia Vergara, Patrick Stewart

Gene (Miller) is a ‘meh’ emoji living in Textopolis who can’t help displaying mixed emotions. Targeted for deletion, he goes on the run with perky Hi-5 (Corden) and hacker Jailbreak (Faris). A combination of product placement, ingratiating voice work and barrel-scraping studio desperation, it’s a witless and blandly generic journey of self-discovery.

The Hitman's Bodyguard

The Hitman's Bodyguard
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 58min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Patrick Hughes
  • Written by: Tom O'Connor
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L Jackson, Elodie Yung, Salma Hayek

Michael Bryce (Reynolds) is an elite bodyguard tasked with transporting imprisoned assassin Darius Kincaid (Jackson) to the Hague, to testify against a Russian warlord. Hilarious mismatched buddy hi-jinks disappointingly fail to ensue. Hayek has a nice role as Kincaid’s very sweary wife, though.

The Last Word

The Last Word
  • 2017
  • USA
  • 1h 48min
  • U
  • Directed by: Mark Pellington
  • Cast: Shirley MacLaine, Amanda Seyfried, AnnJewel Lee Dixon

Control freak businesswoman Harriet Lauler (MacLaine) is concerned about her legacy, so demands that young journalist Anne (Seyfried) write her obituary in advance. Entirely predictable on every level, yet MacLaine’s energy, commitment and sheer star power makes you care about Harriet and give the film the benefit of the doubt.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
  • 2017
  • Canada/US/South Korea
  • PG
  • Directed by: Cal Brunker
  • Cast: Will Arnett, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph

In this inexplicable sequel to the underwhelming 2014 original, Surly Squirrel (Arnett) teams up with idealistic Andie (Heigl) and Precious (Rudolph) to save their park from the Mayor (Moynihan). The characters are unappealing and the script relies on uninspired action and flat non-jokes. At least there’s no ‘Gangnam Style’ this time.

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
  • 2017
  • France/US
  • 2h 17min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Luc Besson
  • Cast: Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Rihanna, Kris Wu, John Goodman, Ethan Hawke, Rutger Hauer

Valerian (DeHaan) and Laureline (Delevingne) are space-station police officers who uncover a plot involving a near-extinct race of creatures. Besson puts all his stock in fancy 3D chases but fails to provide a decent villain; it’s all very eye-catching and has some amusing cameos but of the two leads, only Delevingne does more than phone in her performance.

Wilson

Wilson
  • 2017
  • US
  • 1h 34min
  • Directed by: Craig Johnson
  • Cast: Woody Harrelson, Laura Dern, Isabella Amara

Wilson (Harrelson) meets his teenage daughter for the first time, in this comedy drama based on a graphic novel by Daniel Clowes. Wilson's occasional charm just about outweighs the unpleasant aspects of his character but as the story develops the black humour drains away.
