    An unconventional biopic that's masterfully executed and fascinating to watch.

    The stakes are upped and character count doubled, but this doesn't mean attention to detail is spared. The visuals are sublime with different animation styles used to tell different stories.

    Carney, who wowed everyone with Once, has a knack for this kind of film. Sing Street promotes his best attributes, and succeeds in delivering toe-tapping, head bobbing thrills, heartfelt, if cheesy romance and big laughs.

    The film doesn't simply work, it trumps expectation and lingers long in the mind.
    • 47 Metascore

    The humour is scant and there's no real risk of peril (Grant George's nephew and his dastardly plans seem more psychopathic than threatening). Yet when you have a film that's colourful, easy on the eye and full of positive messages about friendship and trust, then kids will be happy.

    Home is funny, colourful and fast-paced.
    • 65 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Neish
    What starts out as creepy descends into a creature feature that's more laughable than scary.

    Hotel Transylvania 2, much like its predecessor, never aims too high, so the fact that it comes as such a pleasant surprise makes it all the more entertaining.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Neish
    Adopting a laid-back, effortlessly charming approach from the start, Moomins on the Riviera drifts through its short but sweet run time at a welcome pace.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Neish
    Even with many of the original voice cast involved it's a tired effort that sadly - and it really is sad - doesn't live up to expectations.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Jamie Neish
    It's a finely made thriller that's a little bit more contemporary than other le Carré adaptations before it, and allows the central trio a chance to shine and Lewis to do some weird things with his accent and mouth as a weirdly laid back and unconcerned British agent.
    • 40 Metascore
    • 40 Jamie Neish
    It's essentially a collection of shoddily edited action sequences, underpinned by a monotonous narrative that has no purpose, let alone moral heart to reward viewers' waning attention.
    • 35 Metascore
    • 40 Jamie Neish
    Hughes' sequel fails because it makes no attempts whatsoever to rise above its predicable formula, even with the new cast additions and a promising director.
    • 46 Metascore
    • 40 Jamie Neish
    As much as the sequel aches to remind audiences of what they liked first time round, it struggles to establish itself as its own unique entity.
    • 40 Metascore

    Horrible Bosses 2 is by no means an atrocity, but it's tired and unexceptional, which is perhaps worse.
    • 47 Metascore
    • 40 Jamie Neish
    Looped around a paper-thin narrative that makes hardly any sense, Secret of the Tomb displays signs of fatigue right from the start.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 40 Jamie Neish
    Triple 9 becomes a victim of its own inane script. All the usual cop tropes are there - and that's part of the problem. Rarely does screenwriter Matt Cook throw anything at the page that hasn't been done better elsewhere.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 40 Jamie Neish
    The Legend of Barney Thomson has a few redeeming features scattered throughout, but for Carlyle it's much too bland and undefined.
    • 44 Metascore
    • 20 Jamie Neish
    Postman Pat: The Movie is a disappointment; a modern-day reinvention of a traditional, much-loved classic that differs so far from its comfort zone that it'll have a difficult time winning audiences, let alone maintaining there attention.
    • 29 Metascore
    • 20 Jamie Neish
    If there's a positive to be taken away from Hector and the Search for Happiness, it's that British cinema doesn't get much worse than this.
    • 28 Metascore
    • 20 Jamie Neish
    Hitman: Agent 47 is tedious, soulless and, for a film with a relatively trim runtime, seemingly never-ending.
