The Equalizer 2

This surprise Denz-sploitation sequel is neatly effective in places but will leave you with little appetite for thirds.

Christopher Robin

Fulfilling humankind’s urgent need for cuddly stuffed bears in the marmalade-sweet wake of ‘Paddington 2’, Disney’s live-action-animation hybrid ‘Christopher Robin’ – starring the honey-loving Pooh – is big-hearted yet unexciting. While the newly imagined adventures of the grown-up Christopher (Ewan McGregor, a long way from ‘Trainspotting’) and his amiable childhood pals from Hundred Acre Wood place journeyman director Marc Forster straight back into enchanting ‘Finding Neverland territory, this mid-20th-century tale doesn’t quite summon the same magical, childlike wonder.
