3/5 52% Roman J. Israel, Esq. (2017) Muddy and slow in spots, but offbeat enough to keep you watching. - Total Film EDIT

1/5 45% Everything, Everything (2017) Stenberg's effervescent turn can't save this from curdling early into manipulative, melodramatic mush. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 16% The Dark Tower (2017) As baffling as it is dull, Dark Tower is a disappointment for both hardcore fans and the King-curious. Stick with the books. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 88% Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (Captain Underpants) (2017) Funny, absurd and smart-stupid enough to keep everyone happy. - Total Film EDIT

3/5 24% Sleepless (2017) Blood-soaked, action-packed and delightfully single-minded. - Total Film EDIT

1/5 26% Table 19 (2017) If the goal here was to replicate the banal horror of wedding-attendance obligations, then Table 19 nails it. - Total Film EDIT

2/5 39% Secret in Their Eyes (2015) Its a fine story, but you already saw the better, tauter version half a decade ago. - Total Film EDIT

1/5 10% The Forest (2016) Rest assured your last camping trip packed more thrills. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
2/5 21% Jem and the Holograms (2015) Hobbled by inept storytelling and drab visuals, itll leave toon fans wishing theyd stuck with their hazy childhood memories. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
3/5 51% 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016) Bay turns a divisive political issue into a film about machine guns, dirt, blood and gung-ho patriotism. Expect spectacle; insight, not so much. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
2/5 13% Ride Along 2 (2016) Ride Along 2 may be the first mainstream comedy in years to feature a cast this diverse and for that it deserves some sort of accolade. But that's it. Otherwise its the same eye-rolling numbskullery as the first. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 2, 2017
2/5 36% Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates (2016) There are glimmers of Efron's sweetness and Devine's screwball intensity, but it's mostly a fumble of lame gags. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3/5 55% The Purge: Election Year (2016) It's an allegory painted in broad strokes, but several set-pieces are nail-biters, and more than once it captures the insanity of election campaigns with stark clarity. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
2/5 58% Bad Moms (2016) It'd be a complete eye-roller if not for the ferocious Hahn ripping through the thin script like a comedic atom bomb. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 1, 2017
3/5 9% Norm of the North (2016) A harmless kids' toon that's probably the least annoying Schneider vehicle in years. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
1/5 30% The Boy (2016) Some decent jump scares here and there, but the best part of the whole ordeal is watching Cohan keep an admirably straight face through this nonsense. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 28, 2016
1/5 44% Miracles from Heaven (2016) Though the title guarantees uplift, this gruelling drama spends an hour dragging you into a well of depression. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
2/5 6% Mother's Day (2016) There is less depth to this film than a petrol station greeting card, but it's essentially harmless. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
2/5 22% The Boss (2016) It's not funny or inspirational, just loud and trite. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 27, 2016
1/5 14% Nine Lives (2016) By the end you will quite possibly hate cats, Spacey, and the '80s. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 15, 2016
2/5 11% Seventh Son (2015) A film that plays like the most disposable Saturday-matinee fodder imaginable. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2015
2/5 27% The Wedding Ringer (2015) The predictable script lulls you into laughing at some very tired gags, but at least Hart refrains from screaming through the whole thing. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 16, 2015
2/5 35% The November Man (2014) Serviceable, but entirely predictable. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 3, 2014
4/5 67% Space Station 76 (2014) While enthralled with its own retro-futuristic trappings at heart, this is a pitch-black dramedy with a mean-streak. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 16, 2014
2/5 22% Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014) Fun in parts but mostly big, dumb and LOUD, the new TMNT is essentially Transformers in a half-shell. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 13, 2014
3/5 52% The Calling (2014) More character-driven than gory, The Calling is a slow-burner, but it's laced with pitch-black humour and appealing character quirks. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 6, 2014
2/5 60% Draft Day (2014) Director Ivan Reitman jazzes the talky proceedings up with split screens and transitions galore, but it's still just a minor-league Moneyball. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 30, 2014
2/5 35% The Giver (2014) Yet another young adult novel gets squashed into a bland, Saturday afternoon time-waster. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 28, 2014
2/5 22% Think Like a Man Too (2014) Not surprisingly, gags about gambling and strippers ensue. Also not surprisingly, the lightweight laughs dissolve into eye-rolling melodrama. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 15, 2014
2/5 16% Sex Tape (2014) Segel and Diaz are fine, cute and up for it, but they are let down by a cynical script more interested in selling hardware than entertaining the audience. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Sep 1, 2014
2/5 28% Deliver Us from Evil (2014) Sean Harris' horrific demon-soldier and a climactic gorecaked exorcism scene that cranks up the crazy to 11 are the only bright spots in this rainy, preachy, miscast terror tale. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Aug 18, 2014
4/5 100% Branded to Kill (1967) Branded To Kill thrums along to an irresistible hard-bop beat, with effortlessly stylish black andwhite cinematography and set-pieces straight from a pulp fiction fever dream. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 21, 2014
1/5 8% A Haunted House 2 (2014) Unless you've seen every awful horror flick of the past five years, you won't even get the jokes. A comedic dead zone. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 11, 2014
2/5 28% 3 Days To Kill (2014) Neither director McG nor writer Luc Besson are known for their austere realism, so expect rampant witlessness among all the bone-crunching, blood-spraying action. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jun 16, 2014
2/5 27% Pompeii (2014) While it offers spectacular CGI devastation and a chiselled hero, Pompeii is so soulless and empty that you won't shed any tears when the 'cano blows its top. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Apr 27, 2014
1/5 3% The Legend of Hercules (2014) This lousy attempt at a revival isn't even good for camp laughs. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 24, 2014
2/5 69% About Last Night (2014) It's raunchier than its '86 counterpart, but still not much of a turn-on. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 17, 2014
4/5 99% The Invisible War (2012) Directed with straightforward economy, The Invisible War sheds much-needed light on a very dark secret. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 10, 2014
2/5 34% Escape From Planet Earth (2013) A painted-by-numbers 3D kid-flick enlivened mostly by Rob Corddry, who plays the fastidious, nerdy brother to Brendan Fraser's doomed Buzz Lightyear clone. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Mar 5, 2014
1/5 18% Ride Along (2014) Can you be physically assaulted by a comedy? Anything might seem possible after enduring Kevin Hart's jackhammer performance in this mismatched buddy-cop movie. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Feb 24, 2014
3/5 67% Fonzy (2014) Doval's relentlessly upbeat take is warm and fluffy, but leaves the sugary sentiments for the tear-jerking final reel. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 20, 2014
4/5 93% After Tiller (2013) Rarely is this issue presented so fairly and without the requisite hysteria. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2014
3/5 59% Bounty Killer (2013) Borrowing heavily from Roger Corman and Mad Max, this self-aware action-com keeps tongue firmly in cheek as blood sprays all over the desert. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Jan 9, 2014
3/5 51% Black Nativity (2013) The well-worn platitudes and pained moralising are a bit much, but the music is tremendous. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 4, 2013
1/5 2% Getaway (2013) A witless and unforgivably tame car wreck. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Dec 2, 2013
2/5 6% Battle of the Year (2013) What could've been a fun '80s throwback ends up more frustrating that it's worth. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Nov 11, 2013
3/5 67% Turbo (2013) For a $135 million movie, Turbo is charmingly humble. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 14, 2013
2/5 16% Baggage Claim (2013) David E Talbert's romcom is the filmic equivalent of a frying pan to the skull. - Total Film EDIT
Read More | Posted Oct 9, 2013
2/5 13% R.I.P.D. (2013) Rampant CGI monsters, aggressive 3D and a fine cast - especially a likeably grizzly Jeff Bridges - still can't bring this ho-hum Men In Black redux to life. - Total Film EDIT
