Hops along no more than hopefully towards its inevitable conclusion that losers sometimes win.

The British film wasn't much better. But, beleive me, it was easier to watch than this loud mess.

4.3.2.1 (2010)
Like most of those movies that purport to tell it like it is for the fashionably chic young, the result is as cheesy and sentimental as it pretends to be streetwise.

Even though the one sustained sequence of violence has already caused controversy, possibly more than it deserves, this Killer is stylish and convincing.

It has a terrible screenplay and you get the feeling that Johnson could be a much better light comedian than this, given a better chance.

[Rec] 2 (2010)
It doesn't match the original ... there is virtually no back story shown and the inhabitants of the block are by now too far gone even to be identified.

Anyone prepared to make a trilogy of films about life as an Arab citizen in Israel deserves praise for audacity.

Peter Mettler, its director, is trying to show how the second largest oil reserve in the world, which emits more CO2 each day than all the vehicles in Canada, has despoiled a track of the boreal forest as big as England.

The film is an honest celebration of an inventive and daring comedian, whose influence was profound.

Jack Cardiff's superb Technicolor cinematography looks as beautiful as Gardner and that's substantially the reason the film has stood the test of time.

The simplicity of the tale is its strength and the acting of Zohar Strauss as Aaron and Ran Danker as Ezri is entirely natural.

The least that can be said for Maoz's film is that it is a tour de force that forcefully expresses what war is like for ordinary grunts who don't want to do anything but get home as quickly as possible.

Vincere (2010)
Vincere maintains its grip through sheer flair.

Stone, who has always expressed surprise that Gekko became a cult hero, here underlines the fact that his creation has the same old instincts.

It is ineffably facile, often absurd and seems like a soufflé that just won't rise.

People often ask reviewers to choose the worst film of the year so far. At last I have a cast-iron candidate.

Saunters along as if all concerned had decided that imagination and flair were either unnecessary or impossible.

[An] extraordinary kaleidoscope of a film...

It's passably funny in spasms, but in the end the outright vulgarity palls and you wonder what the two leading ladies in the cast, Collette Wolfe and Lizzy Caplan, thought of it all. Not much, I'd say.

Revanche (2009)
Gotz Speilmann's film is well-made, aptly characterised and seems frighteningly true to life.

Zhangke never hints much about politics ... His is more the story of ordinary people caught up in history and still determined to live their lives as well as they can. It's both relevant and resonant.

There can be no more beautifully shot or perfectly framed film out in London at the moment than Claudia Liosa's allegorical tale.

Refn, who made the underrated Bronson in England and the striking Pusher series in Denmark, goes out of his way to avoid the usual clichés of Viking sagas...

Centurion (2010)
Centurion makes a decently mounted action movie in which only the uniforms and weaponry differentiate it from Iraq or Afghanistan. Maybe that's the point of it. But you still have to pen a script.

This is a film of great originality, a cumulative power and a basic oddness that you'll either consider amazing or excruciatingly dull.

Agora (2010)
A swirling, big budget film that sometimes gets in the way of Rachel Weisz's excellent playing of the woman who ought to be better known.

If the film says nothing new, it certainly brings the same kick to the mind that Happiness achieved. And it's not as cold-hearted as it first seems.

Date Night (2010)
Okay, this is only a farcical fable, but with another director it might have been a little more than that.

The plodding direction, pedestrian cinematography and second-rate script prevent a good cast doing more than help the story along.

Bananas! (2009)
Fredrik Gertien's documentary about the alleged perils of being a Nicaraguan banana worker has landed the director in serious trouble with the Dole Food Company.
