3/5 97% Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) "You can almost feel the air whipping around your head and there's an impressive lack of CGI but as an action spectacle the picture has few genuine "wow" moments, favouring constant motion over stand-out sequences. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 31, 2015
3/5 43% We Are Your Friends (2015) "Slickly directed by Max Joseph and well performed by Efron it is, like its hero, too laid back for its own good but an entertaining insight into a colourful world. " ‐ Daily Express

Posted Aug 30, 2015
2/5 96% 45 Years "Courtenay and Rampling are two fine actors but here their rather stilted performances have the awkward air of improvisational role plays while the supporting characters feel like helpful expositional devices rather than real people. " ‐ Daily Express

2/5 52% Gemma Bovery (2015) "After a promising and lighthearted start the picture becomes meandering and dreary, with little reason for us to be interested in or care about these characters despite the many lingering close-ups of Arterton. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 23, 2015
2/5 26% Vacation (2015) "The writer-directors Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley claim to have updated the story but little feels fresh or contemporary beyond some de rigeur crudeness. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 23, 2015
3/5 67% The Bad Education Movie "The script is patchy and the story too silly for its own good but there are enough laughs to make this a hit with the target audience. " ‐ Daily Express

Posted Aug 3, 2015
2/5 8% Hot Pursuit (2015) "Cooper is a rather pitiful caricature of a hapless blonde redeemed only by the actress's innate likeability which not even the crass script can totally suppress. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 3, 2015
4/5 93% Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation (2015) "The film is too long and I was never certain what the villain's ultimate goal was as he seems to be a terrorist without any ideological agenda, but this is good summer fun and probably the best in the series. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 3, 2015
3/5 94% Spy (2015) "At two hours the film is too long and it never reaches the heights of hilarity promised by the premise but it is well performed, exuberant and, come the climax, even quite exciting. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 2, 2015
2/5 60% Southpaw (2015) "There's no doubting Gyllenhaal's commitment to the role and the climactic fight feels absolutely genuine. It's just not every exciting or emotional. " ‐ Daily Express

Posted Jul 28, 2015

Posted Jul 20, 2015
3/5 79% Ant-Man (2015) "Neither exciting action movie nor exuberantly silly comedy in the vein of Guardians, Ant-Man is mildly amusing but frankly a little dull; essential viewing only for Marvel completists ... " ‐ Daily Express

Posted Jun 15, 2015

2/5 61% The Equalizer (2014) "Not since Rambo attempted to find peace in a Buddhist temple in Thailand in Rambo 3 has a man's efforts to forswear violence proved so abortive as in The Equalizer with Denzel Washington. " ‐ Daily Express

3/5 96% Ida (2014) "It's an intriguing story, crisply told, but the austere, remote style makes it hard to engage emotionally. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Sep 25, 2014
2/5 60% Maps to the Stars (2015) "A significant disappointment, more grim family saga about a literally incestuous show business family than lively, entertaining or even vaguely amusing comedy. " ‐ Daily Express

Posted Aug 28, 2014
94% Iron Man (2008) "Iron Man never feels like a laboured prologue that's simply laying the groundwork for further instalments. It's a zippy, action-packed adventure in its own right, boasting top-drawer special effects and some cracking action sequences. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 25, 2014
99% Toy Story 3 (2010) "Forget Butch and Sundance, Bogart and Bacall or Hepburn and Tracy. There is no more engaging double act in the movies than Woody and Buzz and the pair make a triumphant, long-awaited comeback in Toy Story 3. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Aug 25, 2014

Posted Jul 24, 2014
3/5 90% Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes (2014) "A thoughtful if not exactly pulse-pounding sequel to 2011's Rise Of Planet Of The Apes. " ‐ Daily Express
Posted Jul 17, 2014
