Submergence review: The film throws the might of two good actors, some metaphysical questions, some ocean bio-mathematics, a lot of schmoozing by candlelight, and some very lame dialogue trying to encapsulate this world, that world, and the other world, all into some words.
Rampage review: We have seen experiments go more spectacularly wrong before. Rampage tries to go one step further by starting with monsters in space and ending with monsters on the ground. But the film then does little with any of its three.
Pacific Rim Uprising review: Guillermo del Toro, still enjoying his Oscar, has to take some blame for this metal-on-metal havoc, which he helmed the first time around as director (Pacific Rim, 2013) and now shepherds as producer.
Hichki review: While Rani Mukerji is good as always, the actors who play the students are also natural and without any artifice, with the film cleverly dodging stereotypes just when you suspect one around the corner.
7 Days In Entebbe movie review: The most satisfying scenes in the film involve Israeli PM Yitzhak Rabin (Ashkenazi) and Defence Minister Shimon Peres (Marsan) discussing their options, driven largely by political one-upmanship.
Tomb Raider review: Rarely has an actress gone through more physical battering, even if to establish herself as an action figure. It's hard not to feel for that very sensitive face and that delicately lean frame, which though -- surprise, surprise -- emerges none the worse for wear.
Lady Bird review: Saoirse Ronan, a young actor with that fierce intensity, is a work of art in the film, a girl who knows both her strengths and her limitations. She has an Oscar nomination among the film’s five.
Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri review: Frances McDormand, an actor never given to exaggerations, is a picture of un-subdued grief here, her eyes vacant and haunting, her pain a gaping wound seeking to be filled.
Black Panther, starring Chadwick Boseman and Michael B Jordan, embraces all the caricatures of Africa, all the presumed facts and conjectures, and weaves them into a story about tradition, strength, loyalty and progress.
The Shape of Water movie review: That The Shape of Water has 13 Oscar nominations indicates that the love story largely floats above the problems with the film — buoyed to a large extent by a timorous, luminous, powerful Sally Hawkins.
The 15:17 to Paris isn't really an original Eastwood story. But it's easy to see what would attract him to this real-life tale about three ordinary Americans, two of them off-duty soldiers, foiling a possible terror attack aboard a train in 2015.
Maze Runner: The Death Cure movie review: Thomas (Dylan O'Brien) and his friends plunge here right into the mess with the word go, without making any concessions for those who may have come two movies too late into this franchise.
The Commuter movie review: After a lot of fighting and punching, little of which has got to do with why this story was set on a train, the film makes its way towards a conclusion that many would have long guessed.
