The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Rating: 3/5

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...

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...

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...

Monsters University

Rating: 4/5

The idea of a prequel to ‘Monsters, Inc’ sounds like a comedown for Pixar, the studio behind animations like ‘Wall-E’ and ‘Up’. Still, while ‘Monsters University’ can’t claim outright originality, this is a far richer movie than most were expecting....

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...

Tarzan

Rating: 2/5

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...
