Bleed For This (2016)

"Strong performances and a genuinely remarkable real-life tale help Ben Younger's boxing drama Bleed For This rise above the similarities it undoubtedly shares with other films in the genre." ‐Indie London

Moana (2016)

"Visually stunning but narratively basic, Disney's Moana is nevertheless a highly enjoyable family movie that doesn't suffer too much from adhering to formula." ‐Indie London

Allied (2016)

"Allied emerges as a curiously underwhelming affair that fails to do justice to the talents involved, or even the complexity of the story it is attempting to tell." ‐Indie London

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

"An entertaining if flawed first entry into a new wizard-based adventure." ‐Indie London

Arrival (2016)

"Denis Villeneuve is fast becoming the go-to director for intelligent cinema; someone capable of traversing genre and putting his own stamp on things." ‐Indie London

Nocturnal Animals (2016)

"Tom Ford's second film as director is an intriguing, beautifully beguiling experience that provides plenty of food for thought. But there's also the suspicion that it's a sadistic piece of work in beautiful dressing." ‐Indie London

2.5/5 51%

The Accountant (2016)

"Some films are so ridiculous that they entertain in spite of their stupidity. Ben Affleck's The Accountant is a classic case in point; a supposedly serious, even muscular thriller, boosted by an A-list cast that quite simply doesn't add up." ‐Indie London

Trolls (2016)

"A sugar coated candy rush of colourful, glittery excess, Trolls is a family movie clearly designed to leave you on the highest of highs." ‐Indie London

Inferno (2016)

"The greatest puzzle surrounding Tom Hanks' latest foray into Dan Brown territory is just how these films continue to get made." ‐Indie London

War on Everyone (2016)

"You'll have a good time -- but even those not easily offended may also leave with certain reservations." ‐Indie London

The Girl on the Train (2016)

"It's the characters you remember more than the central narrative. But if taken on that basis, it's a journey well worth taking whether you've read the book or not." ‐Indie London

Free State of Jones (2016)

"As flawed as it certainly is, Free State of Jones still remains a worthwhile investment of anyone's time." ‐Indie London

The Magnificent Seven (2016)

"In a summer filled with remakes, reboots, sequels and superheroes that have more often than not disappointed, Fuqua has delivered a classic style of filmmaking that crowd-pleases without blowing you completely away." ‐Indie London

Sausage Party (2016)

"It is this summer's gutsiest offering, worthy of its must-see status even if you may not be able to easily shake some of its more revolting images from your head in a hurry!" ‐Indie London

David Brent: Life on the Road (2017)

"Life On The Road hits more than it misses and even manages a couple of genuinely poignant moments in amongst the cringe-inducing comedy." ‐Indie London

War Dogs (2016)

"War Dogs could -- and perhaps should -- have been a lot harder hitting. As things stand, it's a frivolous take on a compelling story, driven by two excellent leads. You will be entertained." ‐Indie London

Pete's Dragon (2016)

"A remake of the part animated 1977 film of the same name, this completely live action version re-imagines the story and emerges as a film capable of captivating both children and adults alike." ‐Indie London

The Shallows (2016)

"What it lacks in emotional depth, The Shallows more than makes up for with bite, as well as a knowing sense of its own absurdity." ‐Indie London

Up for Love (Un homme à la hauteur) (2016)

"Laurent Tirard's film certainly boasts an interesting premise and has a certain amount of fun subverting expectation early on. But it quickly settles into a routine rom-com format." ‐Indie London

The Carer (2015)

"The Carer emerges as a generally endearing, even heart-warming film that succeeds in spite of its flaws." ‐Indie London

Suicide Squad (2016)

"The good work hinted at in Margot Robbie's depiction of the playfully psychotic Harley Quinn or Jared Leto's Joker (sparingly used to the point of frustration) never get the time to breathe and grow that they clearly deserve." ‐Indie London

Jason Bourne (2016)

"Given the mind-boggling nature of the action and the quality of the performances, this once again delivers the kind of thrills we have come to expect and love." ‐Indie London

Star Trek Beyond (2016)

"If anything, a little more Enterprise was needed in the creative stakes to make this a more memorable experience. As things stand, it merely does what you'd expect." ‐Indie London

The Nice Guys (2016)

"A witty but tough noir thriller that offers a greatest hits compilation of the writer-director's best work to date, as well as something a little bit new." ‐Indie London

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

Money Monster (2016)

"While Money Monster never hits the heights of the films it aspires to -- such as '70s classic Dog Day Afternoon or financial titan Margin Call -- it's a worthwhile investment of your time that won't leave you feeling that short-changed." ‐Indie London

Love & Friendship (2016)

"It's refreshing to find a Jane Austen adaptation that's as witty and subversive as Whit Stillman's Love & Friendship." ‐Indie London

Midnight Special (2016)

"Serving as both a tribute to 80s sci-fi classics Starman and Close Encounters of The Third Kind and an intimate father-son tale, this touches the heart while dazzling the brain." ‐Indie London

Zootopia (2016)

"For the young and innocent minded, there's plenty of knockabout fun and slapstick humour to enjoy, coupled with a timely message about tolerance and integration, while pop culture references abound for adults and film fans to savour. " ‐Indie London

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

"Batman Vs Superman promises much but ends up proving to be something of a false dawn." ‐Indie London

10 Cloverfield Lane (2016)

"Dan Trachtenberg's 10 Cloverfield Lane is that rare kind of surprise: an event movie that delights by virtue of its smallness, its ingenuity and the fact that you'll know very little about it going in." ‐Indie London
Posted Mar 23, 2016

Triple 9 (2016)

"In the main, this is powerhouse filmmaking: gritty, pulse-pounding, intelligent and viscerally thrilling. Genre fans should have a blast." ‐Indie London

Deadpool (2016)

"It's a guilty pleasure of a superhero movie that feels as naughty and as reckless as its central character intends. In that regard, it's mission more than accomplished." ‐Indie London

2.5/5 16%

Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip (2015)

"If you're looking for something to amuse the kids on a cold, windy afternoon then Road Chip is bearable enough -- just. But a fifth film would really be a stretch." ‐Indie London

4/5 77%

The Good Dinosaur (2015)

"By turns breath-taking to look at and emotionally engaging, the film has to rate as a triumph for the way in which it can appeal to audiences of every age while perhaps relying more on classic storytelling elements." ‐Indie London

Creed (2015)

"A heavyweight in every sense that will keep you hooked from gritty start to celebratory finish." ‐Indie London

13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers Of Benghazi (2016)

"Overall, 13 Hours does rather showcase the good, the bad and the ugly of Michael Bay. But it's better elements just about outweigh its worst, making this a much better movie than a lot of people would have predicted." ‐Indie London
