Movie Reviews

Julianne Moore plays unfulfilled actress Havana Segrand

Maps to the Stars

After the dull Cosmopolis, David Cronenberg returns to form in a dark tale from Hollywood, with Julianne Moore, Evan Bird, John Cusack and Olivia Williams delivering particularly strong performances.

  • Denzel Washington plays vigilante Robert McCall

    The Equalizer

    John Byrne is unimpressed with the Denzel Washington-starring vigilante killer movie loosely based on the hit 1980s' TV series of the same name

  • Noble hinges on Deirdre O'Kane's subtle but affecting performance


    Noble hinges on Deirdre O'Kane's subtle but affecting performance, and she has the comic timing to do Christina's wit and charm justice. Read our review.

  • Liam Neeson in A Walk Among The Tombstones

    A Walk Among The Tombstones

    Set your quibbles aside and enjoy the intricate twists and turns of this compelling thriller, which features an outstanding Liam Neeson as the maverick cop, Scudder.

  • No chemistry between Emma Stone and Colin Firth

    Magic in the Moonlight

    The film's charming leads, Colin Firth and Emma Stone, unfortunately can't save this weak romantic comedy that relies on style over substance.

  • Willem Dafoe and Philip Seymour Hoffman in A Most Wanted Man

    A Most Wanted Man

    Shorn by twenty minutes, A Most Wanted Man might have been improved, but it still would have been unexceptional, despite another mesmerising performance from the late, great Philip Seymour Hoffman.

  • Tara Breathnach

    A Nightingale Falling

    This overly pretty tale of the Irish War of Independence was shot on an impressively low budget but it strains both credulity and patience.

  • Pride


    A funny and touching tale of how London's gay community supported striking miners in 1980s Britain.

  • The Boxtrolls raise a human boy as one of their own

    The Boxtrolls

    John Byrne enjoys the stop start film adaptation of Alan Snow's children's book Here Be Monsters!

    Before I go to Sleep

    John Byrne enjoys a tense, psychological thriller starring Nicole Kidman as a woman struggling to determine the truth as she battles against amnesia and wonders who she can trust

  • Dan Stevens plays a smooth-talking, charismatic young southern gent

    The Guest

    Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens delivers a riveting performance as a special ops soldier who is not all that he seems in a psychological thriller that sends itself up beautifully

  • It's refreshing and life-affirming to experience a film with such a warm and generous heart

    The Grand Seduction

    Brendan Gleeson is in great form in this warm and life-affirming tale about a struggling, remote fishing village in Newfoundland.

  • Jenny Slate plays a stand-up comedian who faces a big decision

    Obvious Child

    Obvious Child won the Best International Feature award at this year's Galway Film Fleadh. It features a strong performance from Jenny Slate as a young woman trying to deal with an unplanned pregnancy.

  • JB turns two sheltered Indian teens' lives around by bringing them to LA

    Million Dollar Arm

    Based on a true story, this Disney sports film is heart-warming and positive with plenty of witty moments throughout.

  • A found footage frightener

    As Above, So Below

    City of Infernal Night.
