Kidnapping Freddy Heineken is notable only for an appearance by Sir Anthony Hopkins as the titular brewer-turned-prisoner.

Boasts fine performances and pristine technical credits, but fails to make a deep connection as it jolts awkwardly towards a sweet finale.

Furious 7 (2015)
Screeching incomprehensibly from one stunt-filled set piece to the next, Fast And Furious 7 is an exuberantly high-octane ride across a ridiculously elaborate plot.

Last Knights (2015)
Little more than a dutifully compiled collection of genre conventions, "Last Knights" is such an undemanding vengeance tale that it's almost charmingly pedestrian.

Spy (2015)
Fans of Melissa McCarthy can rejoice: With "Spy," the very charming, deeply lovable, potently funny actress finally gets a role worthy of her talent.

The documentary's mixture of speculation and wonder ought to make it a comfy fit for art houses, especially appealing to sci-fi fans who enjoy pondering the big questions of existence that often underpin the genre's best stories.

Hyena (2015)

A sad case of wasted potential.

Western (2015)
As a dreamy yet concrete evocation of lives beset by unseen anxieties and dwindling resources, Western has a mythic quality in keeping with its totemic title.

The Gunman (2015)
Leisurely, unfocused, and a little too indulgent of its star.

Chappie (2015)
Chappie is a bucket of bolts, Blomkamp's desire to say meaningful things outdistancing his ability to say them compellingly.

While this puzzling remake can sometimes shudder tonally, Forest Whitaker plays smooth and true throughout.

October Gale (2015)

A standout performance from 12-year-old Angourie Rice grounds the bizarre events whenever she's onscreen.

Just as the BBC TV series introduced a new generation to Vera Brittain in 1979, so should this film -- her spirit shines through it.

Why play down to the basest tenets of a genre when it's clear the filmmaking aspires to something smarter?

Bluebird (2014)

Mads Mikkelson has the face for the frontier and just the right level of internalised, righteous rage to keep The Salvation on a rusty-knife-edge throughout.

Focus (2015)
A stylish, consistently diverting romantic caper that, nonetheless, leaves you feeling that you've been jerked around without sufficient payoff.

Gladiator (2000)
This may be fundamentally Saturday night entertainment, but Scott attempts rather more than that on occasion, and at least succeeds in creating a memorable sense of a dark and often frightening period of time.

Crash (2004)
While the mini-genre it occupies -- multi-storylined ensemble pieces about dysfunctional life in southern California -- is already well-established, Crash is a superb, sometimes literally breath-taking new addition to this august group.

The D Train (2015)
This umpteenth film about a class reunion cuts a little deeper and gets a little edgier than its peers, finding plenty of humour and a surprising amount of chemistry by pairing Jack Black and James Marsden.
