The Bourne Ultimatum (2007)

Atomised (Elementarteilchen) (Elementary Particles) (2006)

"Grim, funny, moving and thought-provoking, Roehler's film will find some people who will rank it as one of their films of the year and others who will say that he has ruined Houellebecq's book."

Miami Vice (2006)

"While Miami Vice is heavy on the style and visuals of Mann's other films, almost everything else which makes his work so watchable is absent."

Wilderness (2006)

Monster House (2006)

"Here's a conundrum: an animated movie that is pitched at kids but is far more suitable for teenagers and adults."

Akeelah and the Bee (2006)

"While there's a temptation to dismiss Akeelah and the Bee as Good Will Spelling, there aren't enough (good) heartwarming films like this for either younger or older audiences."

Crank (2006)

An American Haunting (2006)

"The star of Don't Look Now and the star of Carrie appearing in a film as weak as this - now that's scary."

The Little Polar Bear 2 (2005)

"One of those films that will keep the very, very young quiet for a while but offers little to anyone over five. "

When a Stranger Calls (2006)

"While teen chillers tend to be exercises in extreme dullness, at least director Simon West tries to wring some suspense out of the scenes here."

C.R.A.Z.Y. (Crazy) (2005)

"Even though the ending feels a little rushed, and some of the brothers are more sketches than characters, this is a family it's impossible not to like."

Lemming (2006)

"Even if this film promises more than it ultimately delivers, for arguably the most excruciating dining scene in cinema history, it's worth seeing."

Freedomland (2006)

Proof (2005)

"Proof is something of a puzzle, an all-star drama that has the feel of a Sunday afternoon film. Think curiosity, not must see."

L'Enfant (The Child) (2006)

Tsotsi (Thug) (2006)

House of Wax (2005)

"The whole thing is vacuously enjoyable, downright nasty in places and, despite the fact that the ending is rushed, has a pretty spectacular finish."

Batman Begins (2005)

"Batman Begins isn't a case of DC setting a new level for comics onscreen, but rather a memorable example of how to keep up with the competition."

Wedding Crashers (2005)

"A comedy which, like many big days, ends up with you wanting to see more of some people, goes on too long and ultimately ends up as a bit of an anticlimax."

I'll Sleep When I'm Dead (2004)

"While the performances are excellent and the Get Carter-in-reverse plot is intriguing, this is a film where atmospherics triumph over the script."

The Amityville Horror (2005)

The Interpreter (2005)

"As far removed from the glory days of 1970s political thrillers as many diplomats are from the suffering which they're presented with. Lost in translation indeed."

Open Water (2004)
