3/5 46% Little (2019) The jokes are few and the plot predictable. It is a one-joke film, with Martin being the highlight of the movie. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

38% Angel Has Fallen (2019) Hollywood needs to stop force-feeding the audience dry sequels and provide fresh new stories that give the moviegoers value for money. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

2/5 33% Shaft (2019) Some legends should be retired and admired for what they used to be. Shaft is one of them. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

65% Magic Mike XXL (2015) XXL is not a movie to watch with someone you are not comfortable with. This is why it makes the perfect movie for a girls' night out. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

42% What Men Want (2019) While Taraji's performance never wavers... her ability to 'save' a movie is limited when the story is less developed than the character. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

5/5 85% Avengers: Infinity War (2018) A lot is happening at the same time in different parts of the Galaxy, so the story moves quite fast, but attention is key. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

3/5 23% Men in Black International (2019) The easy friendship between Hemsworth and Thompson is what keeps the audience going to the end. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 7, 2020
94% Avengers: Endgame (2019) The film is almost three hours long; long enough to tie up loose ends, as well as give foundation to a new generation of Avengers. When all is said and done, this was the hardest goodbye in the Marvel Universe. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

2/5 13% The Hustle (2019) The Hustle sells a big game but doesn't deliver, just like the title suggests. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
3.5/5 67% The Fate of the Furious (2017) The film doesn't disappoint in its over-dramatized races, unimaginable stunts and adrenaline filled scenes. But as the stunts get bigger the plot gets smaller. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

2/5 41% Office Christmas Party (2016) [Office Christmas Party] doesn't bring much new to the table. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

2/5 30% King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword (2017) Whilst Ritchie tries to retell a classic legendary tale in modern cinema graphics, he loses all focus on character development and captivating storytelling. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

3/5 52% The Lion King (2019) So, is this film good enough to change our attitudes towards remakes? Not really. It's watchable but it barely tugs the heartstrings of our childhood memories. Perhaps the younger generation might find some joy in it, as we did with the 1994 version. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

3/5 57% Aladdin (2019) This is one film that we would watch for the sake of it but come out of the theatre wishing for the good ol' days. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

4/5 76% Hotel Mumbai (2019) Somehow it works. The film is a rollercoaster of emotion, inciting anger, fear and anxiety in the viewers. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

4/5 67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) The film has all the loveable qualities of the original franchise while introducing an inspired comical element from its two main stars. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

29% Pitch Perfect 3 (2017) The franchise should call it quits after the sequel, a third installment is unnecessary. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
3/5 89% John Wick: Chapter 3 - Parabellum (2019) The outrageous concept is amusing yet engaging. The action scenes are over the top, with bits of humour thrown in the mix. All in all, the film works. Mostly, the credit goes to Keanu Reeves for his unwavering and convincing performance. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

70% Isn't It Romantic (2019) There's no two ways about it, the film is what we need after decades of being force-fed illusions of romance films. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

2/5 29% Secret Obsession (2019) For all the hype Netflix had given this film, it might as well have been another Scary Movie. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT
Read More | Posted Jul 6, 2020
1/5 24% The Kitchen (2019) The film is not great. It's too long, it's heavily laden with crime and relies heavily on firepower. The story feels choppy, with no sense of direction. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT

2/5 23% Otherhood (2019) Unfortunately, while the ladies are trying to portray a time they might have experienced in their lives, the characters in the story are severely underdeveloped and somewhat exhausting to watch. - The Star (Kenya) EDIT
