Ant-Man

Ant-Man
  • 2015
  • US/UK
  • 117 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Peyton Reed
  • Cast: Paul Rudd, Michael Douglas, Hayley Atwell

A winning addition to Marvel's cinematic universe, Ant Man follows Dr Hank Pym (Douglas) as he fails in re-sizing himself, but unexpectedly imbues himself with the ability to talk to and control insects. With winning performances from Rudd, Cannavale and Douglas, this charming and eccentric heist film has a great sense of humour, though it's not all light-hearted. Father-daughter relationships add splendid emotional weight, while the film also addresses the female-fronted superhero film dilemma. Yes, there's mayhem, but it’s gilded with a sense of responsibility and mischief, all of which adds up to an utter delight.

Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four
  • 2015
  • US
  • 106 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Josh Trank
  • Cast: Miles Teller, Kate Mara, Michael B. Jordan, Jamie Bell

This adaptation of the classic comic book delivers yet another story about how a team of superheroes develop their freakish abilities, but it's humourless, drab and filled with self-important speeches about saving the world. Tim Story's 2005 and 2007 Fantastic Four films may have set the bar low, but Trank barely clears it.

Far from the Madding Crowd

Far from the Madding Crowd
  • 2015
  • UK
  • 119 min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Thomas Vinterberg
  • Cast: Carey Mulligan, Matthias Schoenaerts, Juno Temple, Michael Sheen

Bathsheba Everdene (Mulligan) is a headstrong rural girl who inherits a farm and attracts the attention of three suitors; lowly Gabriel (Schoenaerts), well-to-do Boldwood (Sheen) and unscrupulous Troy (Sturridge). A straight-up take on Hardy's classic; Mulligan is a convincing Bathsheba and Vinterberg captures the brewing tragedy magnificently.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 94 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Pete Docter
  • Cast: Kaitlyn Dias, Amy Poehler, Lewis Black, Mindy Kaling, Bill Hader, Phyllis Smith

Riley (Dias) is an 11 year old girl whose family is moving from Minnesota to San Francisco; her troubled mind is represented as a factory hub commanded by Joy (Poehler), Fear (Hader), Sadness (Smith), Disgust (Kaling) and Anger (Black). Delightful, poignant and hysterically funny coming-of-age story from Pixar.

  • 2015
  • US
  • 91 min
  • U
  • Directed by: Kyle Balda/Pierre Coffin
  • Written by: Brian Lynch
  • Cast: Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin, Sandra Bullock

Prequel to the Despicable Me films, in which the pill-shaped, dungaree-sporting critters attach themselves to villain Scarlett Overkill (Bullock) and go to London to steal the Crown Jewels. The minions are as cute as ever but they seem funnier in support, and Bullock's character is one-dimensional.

  • Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie
  • Cast: Tom Cruise, Jeremy Renner, Paula Patton, Simon Pegg

Ethan (Cruise) and the gang are on the trail of the nefarious Syndicate when their unit is dissolved by the CIA. With jaw-dropping action, ingenious gadgets and a striking performance from Ferguson as the mysterious Ilsa, this is a a slick, accomplished and hugely entertaining slice of mayhem.

  • Cast: Josh Gad, Peter Dinklage, Adam Sandler, Michelle Monaghan, Kevin James

When aliens challenge Earth to a series of giant video game contests, disgruntled middle-aged gamer Sam (Sandler) is called on by former childhood friend Will (James), now US President, to step up. Lazy, self-satisfied exercise in 80s nostalgia, with honourable mentions for Gad, Cox and Dinklage in a scene-stealing turn as an arrogant Donkey Kong expert.

Sinister 2

Sinister 2
  • 2015
  • US
  • 97 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: Ciarán Foy
  • Cast: Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Nicholas King

A young mother and her son move into a house haunted by a monster with a posse of snuff-film-addicted ghost children, which works out about as well as you'd expect. Lacklustre sequel which gives far too much screen time to its monster and which is less scary than irritating.

Straight Outta Compton

Straight Outta Compton
  • 2015
  • US
  • 146 min
  • 15
  • Directed by: F Gary Gray
  • Cast: Jason Mitchell, Corey Hawkins, O'Shea Jackson Jr

Biopic of rap group NWA, focusing on the recording of their debut album, their subsequent fallings-out and eventual disintegration. Mitchell is excellent as Eazy-E and despite some second-half problem, it's punchy, provocative and packed with attitude, worthy of comparison with the similarly themed Boyz n the Hood and 8 Mile.

  • Directed by: Gary Rydstrom
  • Cast: Evan Rachel Wood, Alan Cumming, Kristin Chenoweth, Maya Rudolph, Sam Palladio, Alfred Molina, Elijah Kelley, Bob Einstein, Peter Stormare, Meredith Anne Bull

When fairy Marianne (Wood) calls off her wedding, her suitor (Palladio) enlists the help of the Sugar Plum Fairy (Chenoweth), who's been captured by the Bog King (Cumming). An indigestible mess: kids' animation meets jukebox musical, with a tendency to define its female characters by their relationships with men.

Lucile Angellier (Williams) is married and lives in a village in occupied France in the 1940s; when handsome young German officer Bruno von Falk (Schoenaerts) arrives, romance blossoms. Adapted from Irène Némirovsky's novellas, it suffers from wayward pacing but Williams is as honest and affecting as ever. Pack a hanky.

The Transporter Refueled

The Transporter Refueled
  • 2015
  • France
  • 96 min

  • Directed by: Camille Delamarre
  • Written by: Bill Collage, Adam Cooper
  • Cast: Ed Skrein

Anna (Chabanol) recruits driver Frank (Skrein) as part of a plot to get revenge on her vicious employer. This leaden, rampantly misogynistic and unpleasantly exploitative reboot shows that the undeniable presence of 'the Stath' was about all this franchise had to recommend it; without him, it's blunt, offensive and pointless.

  • Directed by: Toby Genkel, Sean McCormack
  • Cast: Callum Maloney, Dermot Magennis, Ava Connolly, Tara Flynn

When the world's animals board Noah's ark to escape from the flood, two junior creatures fall overboard and must find their way back to the ship. The extremely predictable story is a bit too similar to Finding Nemo and there's none of the wit, voice-over wizardry or impressive visuals of a Pixar production.
