    The outcome may be pre-ordained, but Emmerich’s knack for a witty pop-culture reference, a pulse-pounding gun battle or a sneaky political undercurrent (the film has drawn fire in the US for being leftie propaganda) hasn’t deserted him.

    It’s a remarkable story, but it’s undermined by some odd directorial choices.
    • 49 Metascore

    This sequel suffers from the same lack of quality control that plagued the first film.

    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.
    • 54 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This is a deeply silly, extremely noisy and sometimes impenetrable action movie that’s drowning in CGI, wild overacting and mullets. And it’s enormously entertaining.

    For all its humanistic warmth and undoubted charm, Short Term 12 just never quite rings true.
    • 59 Metascore

    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.

    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.
    • 58 Metascore

    If you enjoy improbable plot twists, overcooked dialogue and Hollywood legends champing on scenery, this adaptation is a highly entertaining slice of American Gothic.
    • 68 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    A little too rough around the edges to fully engage.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    This is a slicker, shinier, admittedly inferior affair. But with a strong cast, a roaring pace and at least one genuinely unforgettable scene, it’s by no means a write-off.
    • 66 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    Much of the film's impact stems from a pair of remarkable lead performances.
    • 62 Metascore

    There’s something rather bland about Veronica Mars – even the murderers have neat hair and nice clothes – and the largely forgettable cast don’t help. But the one-liners are sharp, the plot unpredictable and the whole thing ticks along with a minimum of fuss.

    It’s disappointing when Starred Up begins to lapse into soapy cliché.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The characterisation is feisty and memorable, the song-and-dance sequences intricate and colourful, and it’ll charm the socks off little people.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    There’s nothing wildly original here, but it’s carried off with charm and wit, and two very enjoyable central performances.
    • 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.
    • 59 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The first half of Magic Magic is greatly enjoyable... Sadly, director Sebastián Silva isn’t sure where to take his characters.
    • 66 Metascore

    First-time feature director Omid Nooshin makes the best of a minuscule budget, and his punchy script doesn’t brake for breath.
    • 62 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    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.
    • 45 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    There’s plenty to enjoy – a handful of smart one-liners, a few nifty shocks and one truly unsettling confrontation in a cemetery – but nothing to give Joss Whedon a run for his money.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The film’s blanket refusal to question its subject feels not only cowardly, but antithetical.
    • 71 Metascore

    22 Jump Street knows how to play to its strengths: Tatum’s performance here is even more puppy-dog lovable than last time, and his scenes with Hill possess a goofy, low-key warmth too often lacking in big-budget comedy.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    There’s a lack of subtlety or surprise which serves the story poorly... That said, it’s a thoughtful, timely, often quietly captivating drama.
    • 49 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    As with all of West’s work this is a good-looking, well acted film shot through with moments of real power, but its conventionality is troubling.

    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.
    • 63 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    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.
    • 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).
    • 61 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    Breathlessly paced and surreally funny, ‘The Boxtrolls’ fizzes with visual invention and wild slapstick. But the grotesquerie is overbearing.
    • 57 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    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.
