Suicide Squad (2016)

"Suicide Squad continues with more of a whimper than a bang, lurching from one so-so set piece to another with the occasional token gesture towards character development." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

The Legend of Tarzan (2016)

"Provided you treat this as strictly disposable popcorn entertainment, there's plenty to enjoy here, particularly some terrific special effects. But a classic to be enjoyed time and again it most certainly is not." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Elvis & Nixon (2016)

"An amusing comedy drama featuring a striking turn from Michael Shannon as Presley, despite using a huge amount of artistic licence." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

"When you go to watch a Roland Emmerich film you know what to expect and here the director of 2012, Godzilla and The Day After Tomorrow delivers perhaps the dearest B-movie ever made." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Tale of Tales (Il racconto dei racconti) (2016)

"Like all good fairytales, the message is secondary to the mystery and the feelings of disquiet it so effortlessly stirs." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Mother's Day (2016)

"By definition, a romcom should be at least a touch romantic and amusing but this manages to be neither." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows (2016)

The Nice Guys (2016)

"Director Shane Black may have surprised with The Long Kiss Goodnight (1996), Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005) and the first two Lethal Weapon movies, but his latest is a shadow of past glories." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

I Saw the Light (2016)

"It takes some doing to turn a story about the man who sold millions of records before dying at just 29 into such a listless experience, but, against all odds, the makers have managed to do just that." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising (2016)

"Wobbly, uneven and dodgy, the best thing about this film is Zac Efron . And that's a sentence I never thought I'd write." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Demolition (2016)

"The trouble isn't that we're meant to feel sorry for a listless investment banker, it's his road to salvation that's so deeply unconvincing." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Captain America: Civil War (2016)

"One of Marvel's rare missteps, lacking the joy, excitement and sense of anything being possible that's always been the studio's hallmark." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

The Peanuts Movie (2015)

"This adaptation of Charles M Schulz's much-loved comic strip will similarly delight little ones, although it proves much too bland to entertain the over-10s." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

The Take (Bastille Day) (2016)

"Wading through cliches and unlikely plot twists, Elba's physicality and sheer screen presence cement his status as one of our most exciting talents." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Jane Got a Gun (2016)

"Not just confusing, predictable and mis-sold as a feminist film, the calamity that is Jane Got A Gun is hobbled by the dullest of plots." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Eye In The Sky (2016)

"This film shouts its message loud and clear, but it's still a nail-biter exploring a thoroughly topical subject - and Mirren and Rickman are terrific." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Midnight Special (2016)

"Sci-fi, superstition and deep daftness collide in a high-minded but exasperating drama that feels three times longer than its already hefty running time." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

The Huntsman: Winter's War (2016)

Victoria (2015)

"With largely improvised dialogue, thumping techno score and pulsing under-current of danger, this is rough-and-ready, rough-and tumble stuff that belies its amazing technical artistry." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Eddie The Eagle (2016)

High-Rise (2016)

"This is an arch, icy film whose visuals more than once recall the tonal styles of Stanley Kubrick - but it's also a movie that seems to take pleasure in distancing itself from its audience." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)

Spotlight (2015)

Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

"Pleasingly, this isn't a film that takes itself too seriously, with the seriously cute BB-8 supplying plenty of humour with his electronic beeps and chirps and no end of playful references to the original trilogy crammed into the 135-minute running time." ‐ Daily Mirror (UK)
