Star Trek Into Darkness
As I Lay Dying
A muscular tone and non-stop action draw us into this Bollywood thriller, which then surprises us as it explores some complex themes about ethics and loyalty.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
Substituting the usual Bollywood song-and-dance with pumped-up bullet ballet, this lengthy but propulsive pic puts a contempo political spin on a classic police-meller formula.
Not without a few perverse, unintentional charms, but only recommendable to the most morbidly curious of viewers.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
