The race against time to reunite a family

San Andreas

With the CGI-fuelled destruction as you'd expect from a summer tent-pole movie, the biggest surprise of San Andreas is that Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson has to dig a little deeper emotionally amidst the rubble.

  • If you've ever fantasised about a missing romance from Love Actually then Man Up could be the story for you

    Man Up

    If you've ever fantasised about a missing romance from Love Actually then Man Up could be the story for you.

  • There's something endearing about Pacino's vulnerability

    Danny Collins

    Inspired loosely by British folksinger Steve Tilston's discovery that John Lennon had written to him in 1971, writer-director Dan Fogelman's directorial debut, hits just enough good notes to strike a chord with viewers.

  • Dujardin is excellent

    The Connection

    One for fans of Popeye Doyle.

  • Timbuktu- a peaceful, contented family under serious threat


    Mauritanian director Abderrahmane Sissako's arresting film explores the reality of jihad as it impacts on a peace-loving family living in the dunes near Timbuktu.

  • Kennedi Clements tries out the new-fangled touch screen


    It's heeeeeeere. This remake of Spielberg's haunted house scare fest has a few jolts but it seems rather quaint in a new era of horror movies which deliver long lasting shock value

  • Britt Robertson stars as idealistic teen Casey Newton

    Film review: Tomorrowland: A World Beyond ****

    George Clooney heads the cast but Raffey Cassidy steals the show in this hugely enjoyable family adventure about a secret future world

  • Like nothing you've ever seen before

    A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night

    "The first Iranian vampire spaghetti western", is how writer/director Ana Lily Amirpour describes A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night. It is like nothing you've ever seen before.

  • The Barden Bellas are back - but can they become World Champions?

    Pitch Perfect 2

    Sequels can be tricky, but fans of the first Pitch Perfect are going to love this follow-up. Plus, there is enough sass, singing and hilarity to raise a smile from the most cynical.

  • "I was a cop searching for a righteous course"

    Mad Max: Fury Road

    Tom Hardy is more mumbling than Mad in this unhinged and enjoyable reboot. Read our review.

  • An enjoyably daft caper

    A Royal Night Out

    Windsor hassle.

  • There is real double act chemistry between young star Onni Tommila and Samuel L Jackson

    Big Game

    Game for a laugh.

  • Rosario Dawson and Chris Rock are both likeable in a rom com

    Top Five

    Chris Rock's charming and funny romcom rips along with real heart and spirit while making some excellent observations about racism, politics and black America.

  • Rupert Evans as the haunted fillm archivist David and Steve Oram as Inspector McNamara  in The Canal

    The Canal

    A wife is murdered and the husband is the chief suspect. But was it her new lover who killed her and dumped her body in the canal? The answer doesn't much matter in this disappointing phantasmagoric exercise.

  • Matthias Schoenaerts plays the handsome, brooding shepherd

    Far from the Madding Crowd

    Director Thomas Vinterberg's adaptation of the classic 1874 novel is pleasant to look at, but overall a tad boring.
