• Your breath will be hitched for the most part. I’m not saying that The Shallows is as good as Jaws – the Steven Spielberg film was a masterpiece and it doesn’t seem likely that it will ever be toppled from its No.1 position.

  • Clint Eastwood’s Sully is not a perfect film, but it comes close to being a great one.

  • Your nerves will be ridiculously frayed by the end of this terrifying movie experience. But since that’s the very goal of any horror/thriller movie, you’ll walk away satisfied, reminding yourself that it’s okay to breathe again.

  • It’s about kindness, bravery and family values – subjects most recent movies have missed. Overall, if you’re among those who still allows their imagination to wander, it’s a very pleasant way to spend a couple of hours.

  • So sadly it’s not the masterpiece we expected, but it’s also not an utter disappointment. It manages to be ridiculously fun in some of its loud and crazy extravagance.

    Overall, I’ll still watch DC movies, but I do feel like they are missing something that the Marvel counterpart has got right. Maybe it’s heart, maybe Marvel just have more practice but I hope DC can redeem themselves soon.

  • Technically and logistically, Greengrass delivers everything you expect from him; there’s no one better when it comes to staging complex, chaotic action amid the real life of big cities.

    Whether or you’ll enjoy such spectacle-focused bravado depends on what you’re looking for in a 2016 Jason Bourne movie.

  • Despite the astounding visuals and magic on show, what really shines through in the movie is its playful love of language. Whether it’s Sophie eagerly devouring “Dahls Chickens’ Nicholas Nickleby”, or the ‘delumptious’ words conjured up by the BFG, language remains at the heart of the story, just as it does in the original book. (Crucially, Rylance was also comfortable with the tongue-twisting aspects of ‘gobblefunk’).

  • The movie is quite upbeat for the nightmarish times we live in. Star Trek always helped us understand that the possibilities are always endless, and the sweet and sincere nature of the film almost makes you believe that it could be true.

    So here’s hoping the great adventure continues for another 50 years from here.

  • So even though none of this is wholly original, I laughed all the way through The Secret Life of Pets – even at jokes that were really dumb or obvious or broad, because they were so expertly written and delivered.

    This is a kid’s movie through and through – but for anyone who has loved some furry creature or the other, you’ll absolutely love this one.

  • It’s a well-intentioned take on the King of the Jungle. Bottom line: it’s more entertaining than most of the other summer blockbusters we’ve gotten so far.
