1/5 3% The Legend of Hercules (2014) " This lousy attempt at a revival isn't even good for camp laughs." — Total Film
Posted Mar 24, 2014
2/5 70% About Last Night (2014) " It's raunchier than its '86 counterpart, but still not much of a turn-on." — Total Film
Posted Mar 17, 2014
4/5 98% The Invisible War (2012) " Directed with straightforward economy, The Invisible War sheds much-needed light on a very dark secret." — Total Film
Posted Mar 10, 2014
2/5 32% Escape From Planet Earth (2013) " A painted-by-numbers 3D kid-flick enlivened mostly by Rob Corddry, who plays the fastidious, nerdy brother to Brendan Fraser's doomed Buzz Lightyear clone." — Total Film
Posted Mar 5, 2014
1/5 18% Ride Along (2014) " Can you be physically assaulted by a comedy? Anything might seem possible after enduring Kevin Hart's jackhammer performance in this mismatched buddy-cop movie." — Total Film
Posted Feb 24, 2014
3/5 —— Fonzy " Doval's relentlessly upbeat take is warm and fluffy, but leaves the sugary sentiments for the tear-jerking final reel." — Total Film
Posted Jan 20, 2014
4/5 94% After Tiller (2013) " Rarely is this issue presented so fairly and without the requisite hysteria." — Total Film
Posted Jan 9, 2014
3/5 56% Bounty Killer (2013) " Borrowing heavily from Roger Corman and Mad Max, this self-aware action-com keeps tongue firmly in cheek as blood sprays all over the desert." — Total Film
Posted Jan 9, 2014
3/5 49% Black Nativity (2013) " The well-worn platitudes and pained moralising are a bit much, but the music is tremendous." — Total Film
Posted Dec 4, 2013
1/5 2% Getaway (2013) " A witless and unforgivably tame car wreck." — Total Film
Posted Dec 2, 2013
2/5 6% Battle of the Year (2013) " What could've been a fun '80s throwback ends up more frustrating that it's worth." — Total Film
Posted Nov 11, 2013
3/5 67% Turbo (2013) " For a $135 million movie, Turbo is charmingly humble." — Total Film
Posted Oct 14, 2013
2/5 14% Baggage Claim (2013) " David E Talbert's romcom is the filmic equivalent of a frying pan to the skull." — Total Film
Posted Oct 9, 2013
2/5 13% R.I.P.D. (2013) " Rampant CGI monsters, aggressive 3D and a fine cast - especially a likeably grizzly Jeff Bridges - still can't bring this ho-hum Men In Black redux to life." — Total Film
Posted Sep 9, 2013
3/5 56% Bachelorette (2012) " The cast tear through the film with bug-eyed glee, with Fisher and Caplan perfect as the two worst friends a girl could ever have." — Total Film
Posted Aug 12, 2013
3/5 35% Aftershock (2013) " It gleefully chops its cast down in increasingly alarming and brutal ways. " — Total Film
Posted Aug 12, 2013
1/5 7% Grown Ups 2 (2013) " The simplest way to put it is that if you liked the first Grown Ups, you will also like this one: it's an equally shameless, just-as shoddy, no-less depressing sprawl of 'life lessons' and fat gags." — Total Film
Posted Jul 30, 2013
3/5 31% Chasing Mavericks (2012) " By the time it's over, you'll either be heading for the beach or vowing never to go in the water again." — Total Film
Posted Jul 3, 2013
3/5 50% Now You See Me (2013) " There are so many twists, turns and 'shocking reveals' that we're soon bogged down by a top-heavy narrative that then collapses with a final reversal that's only stunning in its sheer ridiculousness." — Total Film
Posted Jul 2, 2013
3/5 34% The Internship (2013) " Eight years on from Wedding Crashers, [Vaughn and Wilson] successfully rekindle their irascible shtick." — Total Film
Posted Jul 2, 2013
2/5 38% Admission (2013) " These truly are dark and terrible times if we are forced to accept the elitist problems of an Ivy League college admissions officer as shameless fodder for a romcom." — Total Film
Posted Jun 11, 2013
2/5 15% The Moth Diaries (2012) " Vamps-fans won't find much to gnaw on here." — Total Film
Posted Jun 3, 2013
3/5 16% The Last Exorcism Part II (2013) " Ashley Bell's nuanced performance and a surprisingly pyrotechnic finale liven up a gloomy sequel." — Total Film
Posted May 29, 2013
3/5 34% Deadfall (2012) " Too many coincidences spoil the plot, but this is a down'n'dirty, black'n'bloody little thriller. If nothing else, you'll truly feel the chill." — Total Film
Posted May 10, 2013
1/5 22% The Words (2012) " Its long, dry patches of colourless storytelling suggest it makes more sense as a book, one to read before you fall asleep to dream of better movies." — Total Film
Posted May 2, 2013
3/5 38% Dead Man Down (2013) " A jagged, unbalanced (in every sense) revenge flick that nonetheless offers up twists and brooding noir-ness." — Total Film
Posted Apr 22, 2013
4/5 74% Chimpanzee (2012) " Chimpanzee intermittently veers into Disney-esque cheese - seriously, a 'bad' monkey named Scar? - but is otherwise a delight." — Total Film
Posted Apr 22, 2013
48% Olympus Has Fallen (2013) " An orgy of bloody explosions that'd be tough to endure if it weren't so inadvertently self-parodic." — Total Film
Posted Apr 12, 2013
3/5 39% Dark Skies (2013) " In this doomy surburban horror the real terrors don't come from space." — Total Film
Posted Mar 22, 2013
3/5 56% Snitch (2013) " A thoughtful, slow-boiling, politically charged thriller. It takes an hour for Dwayne to become The Rock, but it's worth the wait." — Total Film
Posted Mar 22, 2013
3/5 16% Stolen (2012) " Loud, predictable fun from Simon 'Con Air' West." — Total Film
Posted Mar 15, 2013
2/5 19% Identity Thief (2013) " A wasted opportunity: put the two leads in a movie that didn't lazily rely on its high concept to do the work, and you'd really have something to laugh about." — Total Film
Posted Mar 7, 2013
3/5 65% Mama (2013) " Fairytale horror that is low on scares and velocity but buoyed by the syrup-thick atmosphere and the creepy stares of the young actresses." — Total Film
Posted Feb 4, 2013
2/5 33% Won't Back Down (2012) " The leads are fine, but the movie's about as fun as summer school." — Total Film
Posted Jan 21, 2013
3/5 81% Pitch Perfect (2012) " Gleeks and Glee-haters alike should rally around this raucous musical comedy." — Total Film
Posted Nov 23, 2012
3/5 49% The Man With the Iron Fists (2012) " Grisly and goofy, this ode to the Shaw Brothers' '70s-era kung fu epics serves up 96 minutes of murder and mutilation and not a lot else." — Total Film
Posted Nov 23, 2012
2/5 38% Here Comes the Boom (2012) " 105 painful minutes of a fat guy getting punched in the face and falling down." — Total Film
Posted Nov 15, 2012
2/5 55% People Like Us (2012) " Fans of Pine's eyebrows will enjoy all the bushy furrowing, but otherwise, there are more important things to cry about." — Total Film
Posted Oct 30, 2012
2/5 57% Sparkle (2012) " Sparkle isn't Dreamgirls - but fans of schmaltzy showbiz fairytales should enjoy it." — Total Film
Posted Sep 28, 2012
3/5 38% Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie (2012) " Very weird fun." — Total Film
Posted Sep 3, 2012
3/5 51% Savages (2012) " Savages is punishing in places, but there are enough colourful characters and careening twists to make it worth the effort." — Total Film
Posted Sep 3, 2012
3/5 64% The Campaign (2012) " Although only slightly more outrageous than reality, The Campaign is a funny, pacy peek behind the political curtain." — Total Film
Posted Sep 3, 2012
2/5 20% That's My Boy (2012) " They're estranged. Tired antics ensue." — Total Film
Posted Aug 28, 2012
2/5 19% Chernobyl Diaries (2012) " Diaries is dark and gruesome, but with little in the way of genuine shock or surprise, you should expect the expected." — Total Film
Posted Jun 21, 2012
2/5 38% Lockout (Unrated) (2012) " Luc Besson's clunky, space-bound actioner apes '80s B-flick excess but skimps on all the good parts." — Total Film
Posted Apr 19, 2012
2/5 8% 11-11-11 (2011) Total Film
Posted Apr 12, 2012
3/5 50% Grave Encounters (2011) " Despite its meagre budget, Grave Encounters boasts surprisingly solid acting, vertigo-baiting hand-held camera antics and enough [REC]- style shock-horror to keep your pulse throbbing throughout." — Total Film
Posted Apr 10, 2012
2/5 6% The Devil Inside (2012) " A low-budget, low-watt belly botherer saved from history's dustbin by a few gruesome moments and a gob-smack of an ending that (almost) makes it worth the slog." — Total Film
Posted Feb 20, 2012
2/5 2% One for the Money (2012) " Heigl's fine and there's some zingy dialogue, but the violence jars with the comedy and, despite being written and directed by women, it still comes off as needlessly sexist." — Total Film
Posted Feb 13, 2012
3/5 12% The Darkest Hour (2011) " If you can get past the hokey premise, then you could be in for a good time with this lumbering 3D disaster-porn noisemaker." — Total Film
