12 Years a Slave

Rating: 5/5

With the release of ‘Django Unchained’ and now this more restrained slavery-era biopic, much has been made of America’s post-Obama willingness to ‘face up to its own past’. But, like Quentin Tarantino before him, British artist turned director Steve...

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

Rating: 4/5

With his biceps and righteousness pumped to the max, Chris Evans’s superhero Captain America is an enjoyable square peg in the round hole of the sleek Marvel universe. That continues in this involving sequel to 2011’s WW2-set ‘Captain America: The Fi...

Divergent

Rating: 2/5

Rest easy, Katniss: you win this round. ‘Divergent’ is the first film to be adapted from Veronica Roth’s dystopian young-adult book series and it arrives with a sludgy, grey-hued plop. It doesn’t help that Roth’s stories make ‘The Hunger Games’ look...

The Lego Movie

Rating: 4/5

With one obvious exception, toy stories do not have the luckiest big-screen pedigree: the results are often either sugary cartoons for undemanding kids or noisy blockbusters for brain-dead teens. If the producers of ‘The LEGO Movie’ had taken either...

Locke

Rating: 4/5

British screenwriter Steven Knight has always shown a keen eye for real life, with his London-set scripts for ‘Dirty Pretty Things’ and ‘Eastern Promises’. But he’s often tended to lay on the plot a bit thick – not least in his recent debut as a dire...

The Love Punch

Rating: 2/5

This Brit comedy has the watchability factor of a mediocre TV sitcom: naff but good-natured. Emma Thompson does one of her jolly, clever, capable women, cheated on by a man not fit to lick her sensible shoes. He’s played by Pierce Brosnan, and is her...

Muppets Most Wanted

Rating: 3/5

‘Everybody knows that the sequel’s never quite as good,’ sing our furry friends during the opening number of a film with much to live up to after 2011’s terrific reboot, ‘The Muppets’. This self-deprecating gag proves to be self-fulfilling. The plot...

Noah

Rating: 2/5

'Black Swan' and 'Requiem for a Dream' director Darren Aronofsky’s big-ticket retelling of the Old Testament story, with an oh-so-serious Russell Crowe playing Noah, is stupid but train-wreck fascinating. Your jaw will drop early and often – right fr...

The Other Woman

Rating: 3/5

Two mistresses and a wife gang up on a cheater in this so-so revenge comedy. Kate (Leslie Mann) discovers husband (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is playing away when Carly (Cameron Diaz) turns up at the door wearing little more than hotpants and a come-hith...

The Quiet Ones

Rating: 2/5

Jared Harris – who played sticky-fingered ad boss Lane Pryce in ‘Mad Men’ – is the strongest thing about this Brit horror, which the filmmakers claim is based on real events. Believe that if you like, but Harris is terrific as an Oxford professor who...

Rio 2

The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Rating: 3/5

Spider-Man has always been the people’s superhero. He’s a high-school dweeb whose supernatural powers allow him to fight crime but don’t offer him any help at all in dealing with the everyday problems of being a teenager. Girls, friends, parents, aut...
