The Children Act movie review: A Moral Compass

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: The Force is with this Daisy Ridley and Mark Hamill starrer

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

Survival of the Fittest

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

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

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 shines in this unusual modern American war film

War Machine movie review: Brad Pitt dominates the film with his performance.

The Circle movie review: Not disturbing enough for us to care
