Deadpool's brings his one-liners back to smash the fourth-wall with an unholy bang

Deadpool

The unpredictable katana-swinging mercenary and his twisted sense of humour are back. Prepare for the doors to get blown off your local theatre.

  • Frock and roll

    Zoolander No 2

    The world's favourite fashion dummies return to a high concept idiocy. With great cheekbones

  • Not kidding anyone

    Dad's Army

    Dad's Army returns with the old bungles and prat-falls but the script is misjudged and there is a severe rationing of belly laughs

  • Edgar Ramirez and Luke Bracey replace Patrick Swayze and Keanu Reeves in this remake of Point Break

    Point Break

    Utterly ridiculous, but a thrilling watch.

  • The same wise-cracking, anarchic spirit as Ghostbusters and Gremlins

    Goosebumps

    Fun for three-quarters of the family.

  • Joseph Fiennes and Nicole Kidman in Strangerland.

    Strangerland

    In this impressive indie movie, Joseph Fienes and Nicole Kidman play the married couple who have moved with their two kids to an Australian outback town for murky reasons which become clear as the story proceeds. It's disturbing, taut and clever.

  • Chasing down the Cardinal: The Spotlight editorial team

    Spotlight

    The solid, reliable Spotlight is essentially All The President's Men rebooted, with the quarry being the real-life Cardinal Law and his errant Boston clergy rather than Richard Nixon and his associates.

  • Caine and his co-stars prove the best of visitors to both head and heart

    Youth

    Not wasted on anyone.

  • Michael Bay's take on the attack on the Benghazi compound in Libya in 2012.

    13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi

    Pearl Harbor and Transformers director Michael Bay goes gung-ho on this account of an attack by Islamic militants on the Benghazi compound in Libya in 2012

  • The 33 dramatises the events surrounding the Chilean mining disaster

    The 33

    John Byrne enjoys the dramatised version of events that saw 33 miners get trapped in a mine in Chile, and the entire planet held its breath.

  • The Big Short is as much an engaging drama as a financial farce

    The Big Short

    The Big Short is the best bet you'll make all year.

  • Looking on in cynical disbelief: Billy Bob Thornton and Sandra Bullock in Our Brand is Crisis.

    Our Brand is Crisis

    Is it the times that are in it that a very poor comedy about politics and PR could be made in so toothless a fashion, and be so lacking in edge and intelligence? You sure as hell are not going to this one.

  • The same again from Ice Cube and Kevin Hart

    Ride Along 2

    Step away from the vehicle.

  • Nie Yinniang (Qi Shu), the reluctant Assassin in Hou Hsiao-Hsien's marvellous film of that name.

    The Assassin

    Hou Hsiao-hsien won Best Director at Cannes for his latest, magisterial film, which is only a martial arts picture in name, relying on the mysteries of human relations rather than on lengthy sword-fighting scenes.

  • Sullivan's Travails

    The 5th Wave

    It's the end of the world as they know it. Harry Guerin isn't entirely fine.
