1/5 No Score Yet The Rookies (2019) The Rookies is an incoherent mess. It has passable action and very flashy editing, but characters are paper-thin, with little depth and unclear motivations. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT

3.5/5 93% Kingdom (2019) Kingdom is effectively a comic book movie, with all the pomp and bombast we have come to expect. Showcasing a dash of Hong Kong gongfu moves and realistic swordplay, it is a fun adventure boasting tight action and engaging set pieces. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT

2.5/5 36% Anna (2019) Despite its flaws and some LGBT representation that eventually falls flat, Anna can still be an entertaining and titillating experience for those who just want to switch their brains off. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT

3/5 53% Fisherman's Friends (2019) Fisherman's Friends is as predictable as the tides, but more than makes up for it with heart and charm. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT

1/5 30% The Silence (2019) What should be the emotional core falls flat, with her story only vaguely alluded to and a lack of any meaningful progression in their relationship. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT

2.5/5 59% The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019) The Secret Life Of Pets 2 is a pared-down version of the original, with a simple message at its heart: Even pets have to find their own courage. It is perfect for children but adults may have to stifle a yawn or two. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT

3/5 68% Pokémon Detective Pikachu (2019) Reynolds gives an electric performance, bringing Pikachu to life. It feels like he was instructed to repeat his Deadpool shtick, but to make it family-friendly. - The New Paper (Singapore) EDIT
