Small Screen Reviews

A dark, twisted tale of subterfuge and powerplays with three equally remarkable and breathtaking performances.

A tense & intriguing potboiler of a thriller with superb lead performances from Peter Mullan & Gerard Butler.

An interesting opening tale with a great turn from Isaac but the film tries to be too clever for its own good.

Despite a strong opening echoing Mad Max, unfortunately it soon descends into predictable generic fodder.

A well-told, fascinating tale with a sublime turn from McConaughey, but doesn't live up to the promise of '71.

A great homage to the original with strong turns and foot-tapping numbers, but falls short of the classic.

A valiant effort with a ton of action, but a weak and predictable plot ensure DC are still on the back foot.

An intriguing premise which is an improvement on the first, but it's a little predictable & unremarkable.

A thoroughly enjoyable old school crime caper with a wonderful lead performance from a master at work.

Solid follow up to the exhilarating original, but it's a tad predictable with some weak character development.

An interesting if uninspiring take on Lisbeth Salander, transforming her into a rather predictable vigilante.

A darker tale, with plenty of mystery and fine performances, but ultimately still building to something more.

An uncompromising retelling of a significant event, but it suffers from being a little ponderous at times.

An adrenaline pumping horror with fine performances, which ultimately falls short following its opening.

An interesting if lightweight take on rock band Queen, containing a mesmerising performance from Rami Malek.
