23% Bad Boys II (2003) " You can’t fault it for pure action, I s’pose, but it left me feeling cold." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 6, 2014
4/4 37% Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007) " With the wedding ruined and the future of the world at stake, it's showtime. Suddenly, Tim Story goes CGI crazy delivering scene after scene of edge-of-your-seat action that will make your eyeballs bleed." — Sun Online
Posted Jul 9, 2007
2.5/4 40% Shrek the Third (2007) " Unfortunately, a few flashes of brilliance don't stop this being a disappointing follow-up to the brilliant first two films. don't let that stop you from taking your kids to see it so they can make up their own minds." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 29, 2007
4/4 49% The Flying Scotsman (2006) " It's stirring stuff from start to finish which will make our friends from north of the border proud to be Scottish. Go See." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 29, 2007
2/4 44% Hostel: Part II (2007) " Cue the blood-gushing finale, which has a few surprises up its sleeve. I wasn't a fan of the original and, despite Hostel: Part II's slicker look, I'm still not." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 29, 2007
3/4 72% Golden Door (2007) " It's an eye-opening insight into pre-Virgin Atlantic travel, beautifully acted by its mainly Italian cast and guaranteed to make you count your blessings." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 29, 2007
1/4 9% Captivity (2007) " With only hunky Daniel Gillies on hand to offer help and essential hair products, the question is can her career survive such a lame script? In a word, no." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 22, 2007
2.5/4 29% Lucky You (2007) " As Kenny Rogers once said: "It's all about knowing when to hold 'em and knowing when to fold 'em". In poker terms this over-long flop is a busted flush." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 22, 2007
4/4 74% La Vie en Rose (La Mome) (2007) " If that's not a movie, I don't know what is. A must-see." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 22, 2007
3/4 94% Ne le Dis à Personne (Tell No One) (2006) " It's exhausting but enthralling from start to finish. Once you've seen it I guarantee you'll want to tell all your friends." — Sun Online

Posted Jun 8, 2007
2.5/4 100% The City of Violence (Jjakpae) (2006) " KOREAN cinema's answer to Quentin Tarantino, Ryoo Seung Wan lives up to his all-action reputation with this bone-crunching, chop-socky revenge thriller." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 8, 2007
2/4 35% The Chumscrubber (2005) " Sadly, despite Bell's eye-catching performance and Glenn Close's disturbing Stepford Wife portrayal, I found this messy movie as self-absorbed as most of its characters." — Sun Online
Posted Jun 8, 2007
3.5/4 70% Ocean's Thirteen (2007) " Funny, finely-tuned and flashier than an Essex boy on a night out in Romford . . . GO SEE!" — Sun Online

Posted Apr 27, 2007
3/5 15% The Breed (2006) " So-bad-itâ(TM)s-actually-quite-good teen scream from horror master Wes Craven." — Sun Online
Posted Apr 27, 2007
5/5 93% This Is England (2007) " This is the best of British . . . UNMISSABLE." — Sun Online
Posted Apr 27, 2007
3.5/5 55% Alpha Dog (2007) " It's Beverly Hills 90210 on crystal meth as a gang of posh potheads lose the plot when a kidnapping goes wrong." — Sun Online
Posted Apr 20, 2007
4/4 75% Sunshine (2007) " Brilliantly mixes eye-popping effects and edge-of-your-seat action to make this sci-fi scorcher the hottest ticket around." — Sun Online

Posted Mar 16, 2007
3.5/4 21% Outlaw (2007) " Strong language and bone-crunching tear-ups won't appeal to the faint-hearted - but for fans of in-your-face action, this is the business." — Sun Online
Posted Mar 11, 2007
3/4 54% The Good Shepherd (2006) " On paper this had "belter" written all over it. Sadly, Damon's lifeless performance in the lead role failed to keep me gripped throughout the movie's bum-numbing 167 minutes." — Sun Online
Posted Feb 23, 2007

Posted Feb 16, 2007
1.5/4 5% Because I Said So (2007) " If there's a worse screenplay in 2007 than this offering from Karen Leigh Hopkins and Jessie Nelson, it'll be written in crayon." — Sun Online
Posted Feb 16, 2007
4/5 91% Hot Fuzz (2007) " The eye-popping action is worthy of the blockbusters it lampoons and a razor-sharp script packed with top one-liners make this easily the most arresting Brit-com of 2007." — Sun Online

Posted Jan 26, 2007
2.5/4 51% The Fountain (2006) " If Kubrick's 2001 got your juices flowing with its stunning, unexplained other-worldliness, this is a movie you could be mad for. Or it might be just a load of old tosh." — Sun Online
Posted Jan 26, 2007

Posted Jan 26, 2007
4/5 89% Venus (2006) " You never know - it might just be eighth time lucky for the old dog come the Oscars." — Sun Online
Posted Jan 26, 2007
4.5/4 67% The Pursuit of Happyness (2006) " The on-screen chemistry between father and son is a winning formula - lifting the film from just another tear-jerker into a heartfelt and compelling slice of cinema." — Sun Online
Posted Jan 14, 2007
3/4 29% Smokin' Aces (2007) " It's a Lock, Stock-style story of back-stabbing hoods, bloodshed and boys' toys that boasts a cracking cast on top form. Highly entertaining." — Sun Online
Posted Jan 12, 2007
87% The Last King of Scotland (2006) " Whitaker is astounding in this role, moving easily between the happy charm that made Amin champion of his people, and the madness that led this infamous dictator to kill almost half a million of them." — Sun Online
