  • The concept probably looked promising on paper: create a computer-generated 3D environment and insert a rabble of characters inspired by the two-dimensional cartoons of yesteryear – a sort of retro, low-fi CGI, if you like. So what went wrong? Wel...

    This should have been something truly remarkable: a peerless cast of playing-against-type Hollywood bigwigs, a director whose track record (‘Capote’, ‘Moneyball’) screams quality and a real-life story that speaks to timely themes of wealth, privil...

    Like a small child with a set of steak knives, ‘Get Hard’ wields sharp ideas gleefully without inspiring confidence. It’s a please-don’t-let-me-get-raped-in-prison comedy starring Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart, and comes with a tongue-in-cheek layer...
