Alita: Battle Angel review

James Cameron and Robert Rodriguez collaborate to bring us a manga adaptation almost 20 years in the making - but the end result is an almost lamentable case of style and speed over substance

Green Book review

Green Book balances hefty themes with refreshing levity, formula with expert restrain in emotion; but its indubitable strong points are the herculean performances by Mortensen and Ali

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.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald review

In one of the most fascinating cinematic worlds, The Crimes of Grindelwald miserably fails at what the Harry Potter series was good at: character building over world building.

Overlord review

Julius Avery's second feature film takes us to a decidedly different prelude to D-Day with twisted science and Nazi zombies abound. The end result is an amusing romp – but one lacking in staying power.
