    Using home-video footage and talking-head interviews, Dinosaur 13 dramatically depicts the thrill of archaeological discovery. But the overbearing soundtrack and shots of weeping palaeontologists do feel a touch manipulative.

    Folman’s vision is just too personal and obtuse, and the result can feel rather like watching someone else drop acid, enjoying their giddy descriptions of all the pretty colours but unable to fully engage.

    Riz Ahmed is superb as Changez (pronounced Chan-Gez, not like the Bowie song),

    It’s disappointing when Starred Up begins to lapse into soapy cliché.
    • 79 Metascore

    There’s only so many times an audience will fall for the same manipulative editing tricks. Still, with fine performances and a rich sense of place, this is a promising start.

    The film does approach Milius with a certain reverence, but it can’t disguise the fact that he’s a troubling, divisive figure: bull-headed, almost cartoonishly macho, staunchly right-wing and dangerously self-obsessed.

    If you enjoy improbable plot twists, overcooked dialogue and Hollywood legends champing on scenery, this adaptation is a highly entertaining slice of American Gothic.

    Dante plays the early scenes perfectly, racking up the clammy dread without tipping over into outright nastiness. But somewhere along the way, the tension dissipates.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This ridiculous, highly watchable, at points startlingly psychedelic action thriller is probably Luc Besson’s best film since ‘Léon’ (which isn’t saying a great deal).
    • 37 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This is an unambitious, old-school thriller, nothing more and nothing less.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s undeniably entertaining – and worth seeing for Kingsley alone – with the misfires never fully overshadowing the moments of glory.
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This is a messy, poorly structured film, riddled with plot holes and lacking any kind of satisfying conclusion.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s always fun to watch scaly, skyscraper-size behemoths lay waste to civilization, but a bit more human drama wouldn’t have gone amiss.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The film has plenty to recommend it, thanks to a string of memorable one-liners and Coogan’s unmatched knack for skin-crawling physical comedy. But this is a long way from the back-of-the-net strike it should have been.
    • 56 Metascore

    The chassis may be slick and speedy, but under the hood Focus lives up to its Ford-produced namesake: sturdy but not exactly stimulating.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The sheer sense of ludicrous, punch-the-air joie de vivre is impossibly infectious.
    • 26 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    Taken 3 scores over its predecessor on almost every level: the stakes are higher, the LA locations are nicely photographed and, best of all, there’s an actual plot, with twists and everything.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    A little too rough around the edges to fully engage.
    • 53 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    An overlong, at times almost plot-free soap opera that introduces a wealth of characters and dips into a wide variety of subplots but never comes together as a story.

    The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable... Sadly, director Sebastián Silva isn’t sure where to take his characters.
    • 63 Metascore

    Good Kill is a dour, claustrophobic film, offering an acute and stunningly photographed exploration of middle-American banality and moral ambivalence.
    • 58 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    Never less than slick, precision-tooled multiplex entertainment, Kingsman hews close to the formula Vaughn and his co-writer Jane Goldman established in their superficially similar "Kick-Ass": hyperspeed action, pithy one-liners and grotesque ultraviolence.

    Willow Creek doesn’t take us anywhere new – the climax is abrupt and unsatisfying – but it’s a whole lot of jarring, juddering fun while it lasts.

    It falters once the actual war begins: Ben Kingsley shows up as a Maori warrior with the weirdest imaginable accent, the final battle is uninvolving, and there’s an unconvincing upbeat coda. Ender’s Game ends up being fitfully engaging and endearingly odd.

    There’s nothing wildly original here, but it’s carried off with charm and wit, and two very enjoyable central performances.

    Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is not the disaster some feared it might be, but neither is it the endlessly quotable, deliciously idiotic follow-on so many of us were optimistically anticipating.

    Rogue Nation is an uneven film.

    If Pedro Almodóvar was hired to direct another "Sex and the City" film, it might end up like Cupcakes. The sort of movie that adjectives like frothy and bubbly were invented for.
    • tbd Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s hardly high art, but for a cheapjack homegrown action flick this is surprisingly solid.
    • 45 Metascore

    The ever-present air of madcap, goofball insanity carries it through. A seriously guilty pleasure.
