    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.

    It’s hardly high art, but for a cheapjack homegrown action flick this is surprisingly solid.

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

    Luckily, Jackson’s singular talent for massive-scale mayhem hasn’t deserted him, and the hour-long smackdown that crowns the film gives him ample opportunities to indulge it.

    Whedon has revealed that his first cut ran for well over three hours, and it shows: Ultron feels excessively nipped and tucked, barrelling from one explosive set-piece to the next, leaving ideas half-formed and character motivations murky.

    Movies this silly, crass and manipulative really shouldn’t be allowed to exist in 2014. But we’re guiltily glad that they do.

    The result is a fascinating – at times illuminating – tightrope act, but rarely an enjoyable one: for all its luminous outsider’s-eye photography and painstaking, perfectly pitched performances, both the film and its shivering heroine prove difficult to warm to.

    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.
    • 77 Metascore

    The result is a film that starts with a bang and ends with a shrug, but keeps us entertained throughout.
    • 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.
    • 81 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s hard to say exactly what’s at fault here: the performances are flawless – Carell fully justifies his unlikely casting, while Ruffalo is as dependable as ever – and the script is astute, intimate and at times shocking. But there’s just no real life in the film.

    First-time feature director Omid Nooshin makes the best of a minuscule budget, and his punchy script doesn’t brake for breath.

    Breathlessly paced and surreally funny, ‘The Boxtrolls’ fizzes with visual invention and wild slapstick. But the grotesquerie is overbearing.
    • 70 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    It’s a remarkable story, but it’s undermined by some odd directorial choices.
    • 66 Metascore

    Much of the film's impact stems from a pair of remarkable lead performances.
    • 47 Metascore

    Poltergeist, while entertaining, has more in common with slick, audience-goosing spookers like "Insidious" and "Sinister" than with the imaginative original.
    • 40 Metascore

    This is one mad mess from start to finish... But the sheer ambition is impossible to ignore, and the sense of fun is infectious: you may fear for your sanity during Jupiter Ascending, but you’ll come out smiling.
    • 72 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    The film’s blanket refusal to question its subject feels not only cowardly, but antithetical.
    • 52 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    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.

    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.
    • 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.

    As a procedural study, Night Moves is undeniably effective: The buildup is slow, painstaking and intense, the fallout inevitable but still shocking...But the soul is somehow missing.

    For all its humanistic warmth and undoubted charm, Short Term 12 just never quite rings true.
    • 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.
    • 67 Metascore
    • 60 Tom Huddleston
    No comedy classic, then, but a good natured and engaging slice of goonish self-mockery.
    • 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.
