300: Rise of an Empire (2014)

"Rise of an Empire is a sumptuous feast for the eyes that's a worthy sequel to the action classic that doesn't improve on the formula, but does entertain for the majority of its run-time." ‐IGN Movies

6.8/10 86%

Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)

"While Jarmusch's vision is an original take on the genre, it's also hard to fully engage with his efforts, the pace too stately, the script too self-conscious, and the initially intriguing characters ultimately outstaying their welcome." ‐IGN Movies

6.9/10 49%

RoboCop (2014)

"While Padilha and his team are to be admired for bringing the concept up-to-date and addressing concerns about drones [etc.]... they've taken much of the fun out of the concept, making for a po-faced and ultimately somewhat forgettable Robocop movie." ‐IGN Movies

8.5/10 78%

Grand Piano (2014)

"The best movie that Alfred Hitchcock never made, Grand Piano is a wild ride that features several enjoyably silly twists and turns and a grandstanding central performance from Elijah Wood." ‐IGN Movies

Cheap Thrills (2014)

"Simple, effective and consistently provocative, Cheap Thrills is a masterful debut from a director to watch." ‐IGN Movies

A Field in England (2014)

"Entertaining, frustrating and annoying in equal measure." ‐IGN Movies

An Adventure in Space and Time (2013)

"This hugely entertaining account of Doctor Who's beginnings should appeal to casual and hardcore fans alike." ‐IGN Movies

Rush (2013)

"One of the best looking and sounding films of the year on top of being one of the most exciting." ‐IGN Movies

Thor: The Dark World (2013)

"The result is a good Thor movie when post-Avengers we wanted a great one." ‐IGN Movies

Ender's Game (2013)

"The result is a thought-provoking flick that's smarter than the average blockbuster, but one that never quite fulfills the potential of the book on which it is based." ‐IGN Movies

9.2/10 64%

Filth (2014)

"If you aren't squeamish, Filth is a marvelously messed up festive flick that manages to be shocking, hilarious and ultimately quite poignant." IGN Movies UK

Zero Charisma (2013)

"A fun flick about table-top gaming culture and the challenges of being a geek in the modern age." ‐IGN Movies

7.5/10 28%

Machete Kills (2013)

"Machete Kills is a blast of bad taste that entertains for the majority of its run-time." ‐IGN Movies

You're Next (2013)

"A film made by people who clearly love the genre and have skillfully taken a simple premise and infused it with laughs and scares to craft what may be the most downright entertaining horror film of the year." IGN Movies UK
Posted Aug 20, 2013
7.5/10 31%

Kick-Ass 2 (2013)

"While it doesn't reach the dizzy heights of its predecessor, Kick-Ass 2 is nevertheless a hugely entertaining comic boom movie that's nastier and funnier than your average superhero flick." ‐IGN Movies
Posted Aug 15, 2013
8.5/10 67%

Elysium (2013)

"Neill Blomkamp's sophmore effort proves that District 9 was no fluke, with Elysium the kind of exciting and intelligent entertainment that's been sorely missing from the summer movie season." ‐IGN Movies

Iron Man 3 (2013)

"[The film] expertly melds action, comedy and drama to become the finest Iron Man movie yet." ‐IGN Movies

6.6/10 53%

Oblivion (2013)

"While a noble effort in terms of scale and ambition, Oblivion entertains only sporadically. There's a great film somewhere in there, but this isn't it." ‐IGN Movies

9/10 61%

Evil Dead (2013)

"While it doesn't exactly reinvent the wheel, this new take on the Evil Dead is every bit as good as Sam Raimi's originals, and praise doesn't get much higher than that." ‐IGN Movies

6.2/10 14%

A Good Day To Die Hard (2013)

"While it may not be time for McClane to hang up his vest just yet, the formula is starting to seem tired, and it feels like the end might be approaching for this particular franchise." ‐IGN Movies
Posted Feb 13, 2013

John Dies at the End (2013)

"When it works, however, it's a gripping thrill-ride that also serves as a timely reminder of the unique talents of Don Coscarelli, one of our most interesting filmmakers, and one who can't be allowed to go another 10 years between features." ‐IGN Movies

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning (2012)

"An entertaining Universal Soldier movie that dares to try something different." ‐IGN Movies

Red Dawn (2012)

"The Red Dawn remake has sat on the shelf for two years, and maybe it should have stayed there." IGN Movies UK

4.5/10 5%

Silent Hill: Revelation (2012)

"Silent Hill Revelation 3D is an inferior sequel in every way, shape and form, a horror sequel that fails to either intrigue or scare, and one that just might have killed the franchise cold-dead." IGN Movies UK
Posted Oct 26, 2012

Paranormal Activity 4 (2012)

"The film does deliver on scares, and at a time when so few Hollywood horrors succeed on that front, we should grateful for the consistency of the Paranormal Activity films." IGN Movies UK

Indie Game: The Movie (2012)

"Indie Game provides a gripping and consistently entertaining insight into this unique sub-set of the games industry." ‐IGN Movies

Sinister (2012)

"While Sinister is hardly a game-changer, it is an extremely effective horror feature; one that creates its own highly original mythology, and wholeheartedly terrifies from start-to-finish." IGN Movies UK

21 Jump Street (2012)

"A smart and immensely entertaining comedy that announces the somewhat surprising arrival of a serious comic talent in the shape of Channing Tatum." IGN Movies UK

3/5 82%

Goon (2012)

"Goon is a surprise on pretty much all fronts, following the story beats you'd expect of a film of this genre, yet delivering them in an enjoyably unusual and offbeat manner. " IGN Movies UK

The Adventures of Tintin (2011)

"While this may not be the perfect Tintin adaptation, it's nevertheless an entertaining one; a film that honours the charm and spirit of the books, and one that should please fans and newcomers alike. " IGN Movies UK

Paranormal Activity 3 (2011)

"While it lacks the narrative cohesion of its predecessors, it surpasses them in terms of tension and scares." ‐IGN Movies

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011)

"It's with a heavy heart that we say good-bye to Harry Potter, but in crafting what may well be the best blockbuster of the season, the boy wizard has gone out with a suitably spellbinding bang, and one that will leave a lasting impression on cinemagoers." IGN Movies UK

2.5/5 32%

Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)

"One can't help but feel that the Disney-Depp partnership has taken the series as far as it can go in this form, and short of a large-scale overhaul of the franchise, it may be best to set these particular Pirates adrift for good." ‐IGN Movies

The Beaver (2011)

"If you take [Gibson's] performance on its own merits, it's one of the finest of his career; touching, terrifying and admirably understated throughout. " ‐IGN Movies

Bridesmaids (2011)

"It's funny stuff, with Wiig's talent for physical comedy and way with a witty put-down providing many of the film's highlights." ‐IGN Movies

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

"While it's by no means a bad Harry Potter movie, the overriding feeling is that it's an incomplete one. Here's hoping that Yates and his team put that right next summer." IGN Movies UK

Red (2010)

"Red is long, predictable, derivative, and without doubt one of the most entertaining experiences to be had in a cinema this year." IGN Movies UK

3.5/5 64%

Predators (2010)

"Let's be honest: you see a Predator movie for the bone-crunching battles between alien and man, and on that front, Antal's film delivers in spades, with blood spilled, spines split and heads separated from bodies at regular intervals." IGN Movies UK
Posted Jul 8, 2010
3/5 36%

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

"While it's beautifully shot, well performed and undoubtedly fun to watch, it all feels somewhat soulless; calculated to tick every blockbuster box rather than to create something new and original." IGN Movies UK
Posted May 20, 2010
2/5 57%

Cemetery Junction (2010)

"This tale has been told so many times that it demands a spark of invention or originality to spice things up, but Cemetery Junction sticks slavishly to story conventions, with nothing new or imaginative to say about the subject." IGN Movies UK

Clash of the Titans (2010)

MacGruber (2010)

Kick-Ass (2010)

"You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll squeal in delight at the outrageous behaviour of a little girl in a purple cape. But most of all, you'll wish that all superhero movies were like this." IGN Movies UK

Alice in Wonderland (2010)

"Suffering from a severe deficiency of wonder, this Alice is by turns loud, lifeless and lacklustre, and so what should have been the perfect marriage of moviemaker and material instead does justice to neither." IGN Movies UK

Daybreakers (2010)

"A gripping feature that is just as likely to provoke thought as it is fear." IGN Movies UK

Sherlock Holmes (2009)

"Sherlock Holmes is never less than entertaining throughout however, and the marvellous chemistry between the leads practically demands a sequel." IGN Movies UK

2012 (2009)

"It feels about 2012 minutes too long, a bloated epic that outstays its welcome long before the credits have rolled." IGN Movies UK

Fantastic Mr. Fox (2009)

"Dahl aficionados will be disappointed at the Americanisation of it all, while Anderson fans will doubtless grow tired of the predictable nature of proceedings." IGN Movies UK

Whiteout (2009)

"The sub-standard work from everyone involved means that Whiteout is very much a missed opportunity that undoubtedly would have been better left on the comic book page." IGN Movies UK

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)

"In spite of many misgivings, including ropey CGI, convoluted storytelling and a smattering of horribly over-the-top performances, G.I. Joe is a blast from start-to-finish." IGN Movies UK
