Above all, it is the acting performances that make this film, and the four key cast members all turn in memorable turns.

Special effects alone do not a great film make. If you analyse the film overall, virtually NOTHING of importance actually happens...

Above all, it’s a film with genuine heart. A story that lifts the spirit and paints onto the screen in technicolour glory the struggle (albeit you feel a rather sanitised one) that lifted America out of the dark ages in terms of equality.

So, the movie has its moments and is great to look at. But the film ends up a sandwich or two short of a smorgasbord, thanks largely to some totally bonkers plot points and more than a few ridiculous coincidences.

The results are outstanding.

I loved this as an intelligent action movie that’s a cut above the rest.

There is no nuance or subtlety to either the writing or the direction. I think that’s a great shame. The film has a good premise hidden in there.

This is a film that grabs you and propels you through the story at a fast lick. It’s a surprisingly moving story, with a well-known and tragic finale.

Although having a wonderfully retro feel and despite mining every horror cliché known to man it’s all obviously been done with loving care by the director David Gordon Green.

It’s a watchable TV film for a rainy afternoon, but not worth heading out to the cinema to watch.

It’s an entertaining delight, full of twists, turns, deliciously wordy dialogue and a satisfyingly open ending.

Even with these inherent spoilers, Chazelle still manages to evoke armrest-squeezing tension into the space flight sequences.

I saw this alone: and we were quite entertained.

It’s undoubtedly a mixed bag, but I came down in the end on the side of it being good rather than bad…

Here’s a film about the music industry that did nothing for me I’m afraid.

Was I entertained? Yes I was, so I am tempted to recommend you seeing this rather than not. But I was also irritated in equal measure….

A curiously bloodless concoction, presumably to guarantee it’s 12A certificate.

Definitely NOT recommended. If someone asks you to go to the cinema with them to see this, tell them to get stuffed!

A sweary but stylishly-executed heist movie that has enough humour to thoroughly entertain this cinema-goer.

It’s a great film for showcasing acting talent, but beware: it’s not got a “lot of laffs”.

A cut-above the norm, Washington’s solid performance makes this an entertaining night out at the flicks.

An excellent thriller that also effectively drills into grief and bereavement.

A great and eye-catching performance from Amandla Stenberg, but otherwise the movie is eminently missable.

A perfectly entertaining watch for a summer night, but it is uneven in tone...
