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 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: 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.
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: 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).
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 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 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.
War Machine movie review: Brad Pitt dominates the film with his performance.
The Circle movie review: Emma Watson is missing out on a lot of activities in the film.
The Sense of An Ending movie review: Just like Lunchbox, Ritesh Batra's new film has at its centre an older, lonely man seeking a connection.
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.
Fast and Furious 8 movie review: Charlize Theron as the digital whiz-kid 'Cipher' is wicked, evil, and stunning.
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.
Logan movie review: Hugh Jackman bids goodbye to X-Men universe and his role as Wolverine with Logan, which perfectly wraps up his film journey.
Lion movie review: Dev Patel-starrer is a piece of sheer genius.
Moonlight movie review: A beautiful search towards finding sexual identity, love and hope.
It’s taken them six films born of a video game, 14-plus years, and $1 billion in profits to bring the world to this. With many, many zombies still to be killed.
The film is an excuse to showcase the expertise of ancient China when it comes to warfare, to the “barbarian” West.
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?
Collateral Beauty movie review: With his daughter dead, Will Smith's Howard is seen building elaborate domino structures, over days at a time, which he then destroys with a flick of his hand.
Rogue One A Star Wars Story movie review: Yes, it’s grid is predictable: in its beginning is its end. But, and this is the strength of the film, it moves past a leaden start, revs it up, and becomes quite entertaining as it goes along.
Moana movie review: Where Moana consistently hits the mark is the expanse it allows its heroine -- the length and breadth of an ocean -- with the film and the future of the world almost entirely resting on her shoulders.
