• Viewers may need superhuman abilities of their own in order to keep track of the diverse plot strands.

  • Motion sickness ahoy! Expect subpar storytelling, non-stop action and constantly swirling camera work.

  • Don’t go expecting The Meg to be the catch of the week and you won’t be too disappointed.

  • Four veterans together for the first time — Jane Fonda, Diane Keaton, Mary Steenburgen and Candice Bergen — should have been a delight. A lazy, tacky story spoils the plot.

  • The script is riddled with platitudes. Even so, the second half builds up to a fairly exciting climax. The intercutting between a contemporary dance performance in Tel Aviv and the fierce fighting back in Entebbe is particularly noteworthy.

    All in all, though, a turbulent ride to a known destination.

  • There are a couple of scenes of graphic torture and violence. Red Sparrow will leave you cold.

  • Game Night provides a pleasant enough diversion for the fluff seekers.

  • To be fair, some of the action scenes are photographed with genuine flair, but none of the actors make an impression. Not even Trevante Rhodes. You’d be better off watching his previous outing, Moonlight, instead.

  • Thankfully, a couple of barnstorming melodies — chief among them, ‘This is me’, performed with great gusto by the Oddities troupe — do raise the roof.

    Otherwise, for a biopic that purports to celebrate humanity in all its diversity, The Greatest Showman is surprisingly flat.

  • Ferdinand may not measure up to the standards set by such recent animated blockbusters as Inside Out or Coco. Still, the beloved bedtime story provides sufficient entertainment for the young at heart.
