The screenplay crackles and pops with a kinetic momentum that is almost mesmerising.

Poster for Any Day Now

Any Day Now

7.0

2012, Drama

Touching, poignant and thought-provoking, and ultimately it calls for understanding as opposed to blind, crippling narrow-mindedness.

Poster for The Raid 2

The Raid 2

8.0

2014, Action, Suspense, Crime

A strong, progressive directorial effort from Evans, and it succeeds as both an inexorably violent action film and a solidly executed criminal drama.

Non-Stop

4.0

2014, Action, Suspense, Mystery

There are some exciting moments and a few surprising twists, but in the end it does little to differentiate itself from other action-thriller films...

2014.02.28

Poster for Lone Survivor

Lone Survivor

8.0

A thrilling ride, and ultimately a moving dedication to the soldiers involved in this mission and many others like them.

Poster for The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty

7.0

Has its share of rousing moments, but it never becomes the sweeping inspirational gesture that it wants to be.

A fascinating insight into an important chapter in American literary history...

2013.11.19

Poster for Prisoners

Prisoners

8.0

2013, Drama, Suspense, Crime

Focussing on average families and on average people makes the film’s hunt, and its moral quandaries, resonant and disquieting long after it ends.

2013.10.17

Riddick

3.0

2013, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

Another mediocre action film which is forgettable on most fronts.

2013.09.11

A fairly forgettable addition to both Emmerich’s filmography and the action genre more broadly.

2013.09.10

The performances are compelling.

2013.09.01

Poster for Kick-Ass 2

Kick-Ass 2

7.0

2013, Adventure, Action, Crime

Highly entertaining and humourous, blending elements of the coming-of-age and comic book film genres deftly...

2013.08.18

Poster for Elysium

Elysium

6.0

2013, Drama, Action, Suspense, Science fiction

Whilst Elysium provides plenty of action-packed thrills and an immersive visual experience, the impact of its political and social commentary is lacking.

2013.08.15

Poster for Cold War

Cold War

6.0

2012, Action, Suspense

A reasonably well-executed action thriller, with an absorbing plot and enough twists and turns to keep audiences vested in the eventual outcomes.
