Unstoppable (2010)

"It's an old school, action-packed explosion of a movie and amazingly a ticket for this train ride is actually worth the price."

Fathers of Girls ()

"Howman and his co-director/writer Ethem Cetintas are so concerned with keeping the plot mellow that they have robbed their story of any drama."

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010)

"If the film's main job was to whet the appetite for the next one, it does that well."

You Again (2010)

"It's left to old pros Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver to add class to the proceedings, which they would if they weren't wasted on tedious slapstick."

Skyline (2010)

"The directors have worked on the SFX in everything from 2012 to Avatar, meaning that once we get outside, things finally get going."

Jackass 3 (2010)

"Will the gang ever get too old to cope with the stunts? Somehow I fear that will just provide a new, more disturbing twist."

Due Date (2010)

The Kids Are All Right (2010)

"An intelligent, well observed movie about adult relationships. The kids are alright but this is a film for grown ups."

Red (2010)

"A solid action comedy, but the flashy visuals and stellar cast can't hide what feels like a slightly missed opportunity."

Charlie St. Cloud (2010)

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps (2010)

"We're left with a solid if predictable drama and a whole lot of very sharp suits and New York loft apartments to envy."

The Town (2010)

"The cast are all great and strangely, directing himself, Affleck manages to deliver one of his strongest performances yet. Maybe he just knows how to get the best out of him."

Diary of a Wimpy Kid (2010)

The Last Airbender (2010)

Knight & Day (2010)

"Soon deteriorates into a pointless travelogue of explosions as the pair are chased from a tropical island to Austria and on to Spain, the plot becoming more tedious with every location."

The Karate Kid (2010)

"Jaden Smith is the perfect mix of cockiness and vulnerability and, taking after his old man Will, the kid can deliver the funnies too."

The Rebound (2009)

Shrek Forever After (2010)

"While it will have to settle for being the second best sequel of the franchise, Shrek's last outing ultimately reminds you of why we fell in love with these characters in the first place."

The Collector (2009)

She's Out of My League (2010)

"With his debut feature, English director Jim Field Smith handles the humour with skill. A solid if formulaic addition to the genre."

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

"Bruckheimer has an eye for potential action heroes. He turned Nicolas Cage into one when he cast him in The Rock and here he's done the same with Gyllenhaal."

The Losers (2010)

"A great script, full of gags, that revels in ridiculousness and some OTT action to make one stupidly enjoyable film."

Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call New Orleans (2009)

"This will be remembered as one of Cage's finest performances. Maybe he has just needed the right director and in eccentric German genius Werner Herzog he's found him."
