A Most Wanted Man (2014)

22 Jump Street (2014)

"The movie always operates on two wavelengths - one a dumb movie sequel full of dumb movie clichés and the other a movie mocking those very clichés."

Dom Hemingway (2014)

"Jude Law's Dom remains an artificial construct, never the least bit real or empathetic, rather a creature of fiction - and an implausible one at that."

The Raid 2 (2014)

"The thrill is gone - Gareth Evans has raised the bar in this sequel as far as stunts are concerned but wearies you with almost non-stop fights."

Casablanca (1943)
