The Children Act movie review: A Moral Compass

September 15, 2018 2:26:43 am

Fiona visits him at the hospital before rendering a verdict. The encounter and the decision, and the asymmetries in the consequences for Adam (Fionn Whitehead, from Dunkirk) and Fiona, reverberate though the rest of the action.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie review

Star Wars The Last Jedi movie review: The Force is with this Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill starrer

December 16, 2017 7:31:37 am

Star Wars: The Last Jedi proves that comic-book divide between good-and-bad can be complex, that the middle ground can be filled with doubt and pain: Adam Driver makes a great bad guy who can be good.

Berlin Syndrome movie review: The Shortland film is trying so hard to say so many things

July 28, 2017 5:44:15 pm

Berlin Syndrome movie review: Shortland adapting a critically acclaimed novel by Melanie Joosten, focuses on a lot of things after this -- Clare's growing frustration, Andi's increasing unpredictability, his father and mother and East Berlin issues, and even the snow and Christmas trees outside.

War for the planet of the apes

Survival of the Fittest

July 15, 2017 12:47:24 am

It is an impressive film, technologically astounding, and it is a hard-working film, with the camera striving to capture every puff of the nostril of its apes. But that doesn’t necessarily make it a particularly great film.

Spider-Man: Homecoming movie review: Tom Holland’s boyish experiments with his superpowers in a man’s world of Avengers, are en pointe

July 7, 2017 10:56:00 am

Spider-Man: Homecoming movie review: The film places Avengers right at the centre of it. It is but natural that they would be famous by now and popular, and that someone would have made motivational videos where they tell schoolchildren to exercise (that’s Captain America, in a series of hilarious videos).

Tom Cruise, The Mummy, The Mummy movie review

The Mummy movie review: This Tom Cruise film takes a lesson from Bollywood

June 9, 2017 8:18:43 pm

The Mummy movie review: What we are left with is our hero kicking up a lot of sound and fury, and sand, of course, with the promise of much more of the same to come. Not actively awful, but not a barrel of silly fun either.

Baywatch movie review: Priyanka Chopra to the rescue as film washes up the shore

June 2, 2017 4:31:10 pm

Baywatch movie review: Priyanka Chopra sizzles as Pamela Anderson did once dressed in slinky dresses, twirling a drink and throwing grand parties, she must do so for the sake of all the women “back home” not given their due. She adds the real oomph in this tame Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron affair.

Wonder Woman movie review: Gal Gadot film is the DC movie we have all been waiting for

May 30, 2017 3:21:34 pm

Wonder Woman review: Just look to the image of Gal Gadot confidently striding out alone onto an unwinnable battlefield with only a shield, a sword and a mission and prevailing. It's enough to give you goosebumps. It's not perfect, but it's often good, sometimes great and exceptionally re-watchable.

May 5, 2017 3:02:47 pm

Guardians of Galaxy Vol 2 movie review: Chris Pratt is the life of Guardians and with this film more than ever centred around him, looks like he can take on the extra load.

The Boss baby movie review: Alec Baldwin, the stand-up of the moment, is the Boss Baby, throwing around lines like fired, hired, promoted, and upper-rung and middle-rung management.

xXx Return of Xander Cage movie review: Deepika Padukone as Vin Diesel’s leading lady kicks butt, kisses with aplomb and still keeps her accent Indian. But, what about the film itself?
