The Girl in the Spider's Web review

The Girl in the Spider's Web does away with the gritty yet somewhat low-key tone of Larsson's material in favor of spectacular but familiar action and spy film tropes, resembling far more a modern instalment of the Bond series than any adaptation of the Millennium trilogy to date.

The Little Stranger review

Lenny Abrahamson lends his adaptational talents to a 2009 ghost story novel, the result being a film that stands out with aplomb in a genre where it is increasingly difficult to be unique

The Eyes of Orson Welles review

Mark Cousins' biopic on Orson Welles, conveyed through the latter's art, is a touch dry and self-indulgent - but a solid enough feature at its core.

The Darkest Minds review

Wading through a sea of tired tropes and predictable plotting, offset only by the general quality of its cast, The Darkest Minds adds itself to the ever-increasing pile of incorrigibly generic young adult flotsam

Pacific Rim: Uprising review

Steven S DeKnight's sequel to Guillermo del Toro's robo-blockbuster may be rusty in some ways compared to its predecessor – but it's still no less of an enjoyable, if basic, action romp

Excellent

I Kill Giants review

The first full-length feature from Anders Walter ably adapts Joe Kelly and Ken Niimura's graphic novel into a simple yet profoundly effective film on adolescence, acceptance and facing one's demons, and no amount of misleading advertising can keep this one down

Renegades review

A troubled production period gives rise to a competently-made yet ultimately rather forgettable action romp, with Luc Besson's name behind it – but none of his colour
