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.

The King of Thieves

The King of Thieves
  • 2018
  • UK
  • Directed by: James Marsh
  • Cast: Michael Caine, Charlie Cox, Michael Gambon

Brian (Caine) is an octogenarian gangster who puts together a team of old codgers to rob the Hatton Garden diamond vaults. The biggest and flashiest of the four versions so far of this story has lots of star power but a boring script, dislikeable characters and colourless direction. Pointless and disappointing.

  • Directed by: Marc Turtletaub
  • Cast: Kelly Macdonald, Irrfan Khan, David Denman, Bubba Weiler, Austin Abrams, Liv Hewson

Agnes (Macdonald) is a housewife whose life revolves around routine, until she discovers a flair for solving jigsaw puzzles. Macdonald is divine as ever, but the film rarely digs deep into how such a modest pursuit can bring someone back to live. Charming but slight.

The Third Man

The Third Man
  • 1949
  • US/UK
  • 1h 40min
  • PG
  • Directed by: Carol Reed
  • Cast: Joseph Cotton, Orson Welles.

Holly Martins has been invited to unstable, post-World War II Vienna by his old chum Lime, who is now in the grand-scale drug dealing business, only to discover that he is dead. Except, he isn't of course, and a multilayered cat and mouse scenario is triggered. So, what's so good about it? Well, you have a stirring zither score by Anton Karas, the ferris wheel and the 'cuckoo clock' speech yet possibly its greatest triumph is to cram so much wonder into so little time.

Yardie

Yardie
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 41min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Idris Elba
  • Cast: Stephen Graham, Aml Ameen, Mark Rhino Smith

Dennis (Ameen) is a young man who vows vengeance for the death of his older brother. Elba directs with assurance, with gloomy 80s London coming across with tasty authority, but it never quite transcends its pulpy material. Still, Ameen is excellent, it’s got a thumping soundtrack and it rings with anger and energy.
