Son of a Gun (2015)

"The film is a little hit-and-miss at times, but when McGregor is front-and-centre it has real energy and you are reminded just what a fine screen performer he is." ‐Screen International

Ex Machina (2015)

"A thoughtful and at times unnervingly sly film that makes the very most of the burgeoning star power of Alicia Vikander, Oscar Isaac and Domhnall Gleeson." ‐Screen International
Posted Jan 16, 2015

Argo (2012)

"With star -- and the film's director -- Ben Affleck sporting his best bushy beard and playing a genial spook, Argo turns out to be an enjoyable and polished spy thriller." Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Jan 13, 2015

Still Life (2015)

"A mannered and rather familiar dark comedy-drama, Uberto Pasolini's attractively structured British-set film is given life and depth by a striking performance by Eddie Marsan." ‐Screen International
Posted Jan 12, 2015

Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

"A delicious blend of streetwise savvy and old-fashioned espionage motifs." ‐Screen International
Posted Jan 12, 2015

Wild (2014)

"The thoughtfully rugged Wild is the perfect awards vehicle for the resurgent Reese Witherspoon." ‐Screen International
Posted Jan 5, 2015

The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death (2015)

"The film is rarely truly scary despite a smattering of chilling moments." ‐Screen International
Posted Jan 1, 2015

Taken 3 (2015)

"While this time round the violence is pretty mild (the series is chasing the younger action-crowd) and packed with rather familiar chase scenes there are still some action sequences that deliver ..." ‐Screen International
Posted Jan 1, 2015

Loitering With Intent (2015)

"While the film never reaches massive dramatic heights, its genial warmth and gentle comedy win through, with Tomei and Rockwell delivering terrific performances that ground the film and give the other cast room to play around." ‐Screen International

A Wonderful Christmas Time (2014)

"Following on from his film Benny & Jolene, it marks out Adams as savvy talent able to bring out the best in his talented cast." ‐Screen International
Posted Dec 9, 2014

Get Santa (2014)

"Get Santa is a thoroughly enjoyable romp, blessed with a spot-on performance by Jim Broadbent, who is quite irresistible in the role of Santa Claus, a part that seems tailor-made for him." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 28, 2014

Black Sea (2015)

"Though a contemporary story, it plays out like an old-fashioned dramatic-thriller, and while lacking standout action sequences it sustains itself thanks to atmosphere and performances rather than special effects and grandstanding sequences." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 25, 2014

Metalhead (2015)

"Beautifully shot and engagingly noisy." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 24, 2014

Paddington (2015)

Posted Nov 19, 2014

Song Of The Sea (2014)

"A quite delightful piece of magical animation." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 18, 2014

The Mule (2014)

"A darkly amusing Australian comedy that deftly dwells on some of the more unpleasant physical side effects of being a drug smuggler." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 17, 2014
4/5 90%

The Imitation Game (2014)

"No guns-blazing thriller, this is an old-fashioned code-cracking drama." Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Nov 13, 2014

Nativity 3: Dude Where's My Donkey? (2014)

"While there are pockets of innocent humour and childish antics it lacks a much-needed sense of fun." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 11, 2014

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014)

"While this Part 1 is light on old-fashioned adventure it does offer up a tough - and at times moving - transition for its lead character." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 10, 2014

The Tribe (2015)

"A strange and oddly immersive film that makes it audience really work but in the end delivers something rare and original." ‐Screen International
Posted Nov 5, 2014

Interstellar (2014)

"In the end you can only applaud its sheer sense of scale, drama, excitement and willingness to take that extra step." Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Oct 30, 2014

Before I Disappear (2014)

"Stylish and beautifully shot." ‐Screen International
Posted Oct 24, 2014

Love, Rosie (2015)

"In the end it all feels rather heavy-handed and over-laden with music cues to the extent that the story rarely gets a chance to breathe and properly develop." ‐Screen International
Posted Oct 21, 2014

Trash (2015)

"An engagingly freewheeling romp through the grittier side of Brazil, focusing on political corruption and police brutality as it weaves its story of a handful of slum kids who come across information that could bring down a corrupt official." ‐Screen International
Posted Oct 19, 2014
3/5 22%

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

"While this special-effects laden action fest may not tick any highbrow cultural boxes it is a deliciously daft bit of entertainment - frenetic and full of fun." Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Oct 16, 2014

Serena (2015)

"The film is rather watchable, defined by impressive performances, striking production design and lustrous cinematography." ‐Screen International
Posted Oct 14, 2014
4/5 65%

The Maze Runner (2014)

"It's Lord Of The Flies meets Lost, but in a good way." Daily Mirror (UK)
Posted Oct 9, 2014

Drive Hard (2014)

"Delivers a goodly amount of good natured action fun but in the end suffers from being just too low-key for its own good." ‐Screen International
Posted Oct 5, 2014

Annabelle (2014)

"Delivers only a few genuine scary moments as it attempts to press some expected spooky buttons." ‐Screen International
Posted Oct 3, 2014

For Those In Peril (2014)

"There are certainly a lot of good things going on in For Those In Peril, but in the end its ambition out-weighs its artistic impact." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 29, 2014

Man from Reno (2015)

"A stylishly made genre film that revels in its old-fashioned sense of mystery and suspense." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 26, 2014

The Editor (2014)

"A well worked and occasionally well-sustained satire of the wonderfully sleazy Italian murder-mystery melodramas from the 1960s to the '80s ..." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 18, 2014

Samba (2015)

"A well-meaning and occasionally joyous film that is ultimately too scattershot in its format and tone to really work." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 18, 2014

A Walk Among the Tombstones (2014)

"Scott Frank's impressively dour and dangerous crime-thriller is the perfect vehicle for Liam Neeson to play a tough and troubled investigator who find himself caught up in a deadly and disturbing case that is like nothing he has ever tackled before." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 17, 2014

Beyond the Lights (2014)

"A rather watchable film that is reminiscent of The Bodyguard (sans the stalker sub-plot) that also works well as warm-hearted romance with soap opera elements." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 14, 2014

In Order of Disappearance (2016)

"A delightfully droll tale of bloody revenge." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 12, 2014

Top Five (2014)

"Fresh, accessible, delightfully performed and downright hilarious." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 12, 2014

The Keeping Room (2015)

"A tough and rather merciless film that makes no bones about the horrors of war. It is also a strong and strident story of how three very different women unite as they defend their home and each other." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 12, 2014

A Little Chaos (2015)

"Yes it lacks real dramatic edge and may be seen as a typical British period costume film, but it is also a classily made pleasure that will delight its target audience." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 10, 2014

The Good Lie (2014)

"A drama that takes pains to sidestep some message-movie conventions but nonetheless fails to deliver an appreciably memorable or thought-provoking experience." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 8, 2014

Shelter (2015)

"Despite being beautifully shot it is often familiar fare that ticks lots of cliché boxes." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 8, 2014

The Riot Club (Posh) (2015)

"A powerful and illuminating delve into the darker side of young well-to-do British men who dub themselves upper class and celebrate their life of privilege through the excesses of an exclusive Oxford University undergraduate dining society." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 7, 2014

The Face Of An Angel (2015)

"The central performances are impressive, with Kate Beckinsale especially good ..." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 7, 2014

Black or White (2015)

"Costner gives one of his strongest performances in recent years, but the effort is for naught in a film that ultimately doesn't have the courage to deal honestly with the issues it raises." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 7, 2014

The Equalizer (2014)

"Fuqua shoots with style and precision, though some of the fight scenes are a little blurred, but in the end the Washington factor wins through." ‐Screen International
Posted Sep 7, 2014

Gemma Bovery (2015)

"It benefits from Arterton's genuine sex appeal, which is delightfully balanced by Fabrice Luchini as her neighbour obsessed with the novel and who sees worrying links between her and the fictional heroine." ‐Screen International
