- Cast: Bruce Willis, Alan Rickman, Bonnie Bedelia, Alexander Godunov
Willis plays a cop who attends a tower block party with his estranged spouse. The building is raided by terrorists, so it's left to Willis to bump off the baddies and save the hostages while the police and FBI languish ineptly on the sidelines. Unbearably tense actioner that gets good mileage out of yawning lift-shafts and flying bullets, while Willis is convincing as an ordinary guy trying to cope with it all. Watch out for Brit Rickman as a villain with a sense of humour.

In the sequel to the much-loved Finding Nemo, annoyingly forgetful Dory goes on an adventure to find her family, crossing three oceans to get to them with Marlon and Nemo just a swish behind her.

When exiled Chilean poet Pablo Neruda (Noiret) arrives on a remote island off the Neapolitan coast, he aids local postman Mario (Troisi) to woo the village barmaid. Gently paced and full of Mediterranean sun, Radford's film is nicely unsentimental. Sadly, Troisi died the day after shooting was completed, but he couldn't have left a finer legacy.

Lars Lindstrom (Gosling) is a quiet and sullen young man. His brother Gus (Schneider) and Gus' pregnant wife Karin (Mortimer) try to integrate him into the community with no success until Lars gets an unusual new girlfriend. By turns tender, thoughtful and open hearted, Lars and the Real Girl manages to be both ridiculous and joyous.

A father goes on the run with his son after he discovers his boy has mysterious powers in this film, which harks back to the grounded 1980s sci-fi of Steven Spielberg and John Carpenter. It's filled with beautiful shots of the Texan dusk, and Shannon is compelling in his role as father Roy. The revelation of what's really going on, though, is lamely conceived and cheaply mounted, and it's hard not to feel cheated.

A group of students making a documentary about an illegal bear hunter find out there are far more dangerous things in the woods than they imagined in this acclaimed Norwegian monster flick. There are a few good jokes and a handful of very impressive visual effects sequences, but there's nothing wildly original in this movie that's neither scary enough for horror nor funny enough for comedy.
