Entebbe

Entebbe
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • 1h 46min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: José Padilha
  • Cast: Rosamund Pike, Daniel Brühl, Eddie Marsan

The true story of Operation Entebbe, in which Israeli commandos rescued hostages who had been kidnapped by pro-Palestinian terrorists and held in a Ugandan airport. Pike as a German revolutionary is intriguing and although there are some missteps, it’s an urgent and vibrant take on the incident.

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.

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.

  • 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.

  • US
  • Directed by: Christopher McQuarrie

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.

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.

Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie

Thomas & Friends: Big World! Big Adventures! The Movie
  • 2018
  • UK
  • 1h 25min
  • U
  • Directed by: David Stoten
  • Cast: Teresa Gallagher, John Hasler, Peter Andre, Keith Wickham, Rob Rackstraw, Matt Wilkinson, Nigel Pilkington, Christopher Ragland

Thomas the Tank Engine (voiced by Hasler) heads on a global adventure, encouraged by a free-spirited race car (Andre) and a potential romance with engine Nia (Grundy). A bland, impersonal plot will fail to entertain anyone except the tiniest of tots.
