    Infinitely Polar Bear is heartfelt and honest, but it's too cute by half.

    The film takes on Gabrielle’s listlessness, slumps into an opiated fug. The malady is mysterious and not easily treatable. It just exhausts you. It transforms from a story about release to just another jail. At times it felt like there was no escape.

    Parked putters, but doesn't go anywhere.

    The flat hammerblows of The Wolverine bear little relation to the zing and pop of Matthew Vaughn's colourful treatment. Inconsistency is inevitable in a world that's constantly being dug up and done over, but it leaves us no time to fall in love with anything being flung at us.

    Originality may be out of Blood's jurisdiction, but it manages to plod on, dutifully walking a tired old beat.

    For all its smashed open cuts and swollen eye sockets, Younger’s film remains an oddly sterile experience. For a biopic, it is remarkably featureless.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower is a perfect fit for its target audience – the Harry Potter kids who are following Emma Watson through her baby steps towards the stronger stuff.

    Wheatley has made High Rise his story, instead of Ballard’s. That’s fine – but, unfortunately, it’s a less interesting take.

    There's so much thrown into Tip Top that nothing stands out.

    The dancefloor's full of bodies, the bride and groom have been backed into a corner by relatives desperate for their pound of flesh. Pretty much your average wedding, then.

    Salvation was boring, but Genisys makes you sad. Risk-averse Hollywood has made a crash-test dummy of a once great franchise, simply throwing everything at it to see what it stands.

    It's pulled this way and that by a hiddly-fiddly soundtrack, spun senseless by scene after scene of Radcliffe and Kazan trading flirtatious banter.
    • 41 Metascore
    • 40 Henry Barnes
    It aims for sexy and/or dangerous, but the tone is dry and the pace lags.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Henry Barnes
    Horns plays instead like a high concept beer advert – breezily stylish, memorable in its time, but a bit too full of gas.
    • 28 Metascore

    Novelistic, rich and awfully silly, London Fields – like Ben Wheatley’s take on High Rise - is a long-awaited adaptation of a popular and gloomily prophetic book, that seems unnecessary.

    The script's a drowner, the acting's awash. Again and again Butler returns to the sea. He just about survives the buffeting.
    • 48 Metascore

    Pearce has fun; world-weary in the style of a 15-year-old told one too many times to tidy his room – but shoddy special effects and the surface-level sass of the president's daughter leave this one spinning in low orbit.

    • 20 Henry Barnes
    The flat-out dullness of Arthur is the point of Dante Ariola's debut feature, but it's also its undoing.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 20 Henry Barnes
    Mr Right is Grosse Pointe Blank meets Dexter. Liman meets Tarantino. Derivative idea meets sloppy execution.
    • 39 Metascore
    • 20 Henry Barnes
    The Other Woman scrawls out a dumb dumb-feminist message with a big, fat marker pen.
