• While Mila Kunis is an actor with good comic timing of her own, it’s Kate McKinnon who walks away with the film.

  • om Cruise’s Mission: Impossible – Fallout offers not just action that sizzles but action we can largely follow, happening to people we grow to care about.

  • Rawson Marshall Thurber is more intent on showcasing Dwayne Johnson’s indisputable superhuman, but also much exposed, talents.

  • Having delivered a surprise hit with 2015 film Ant-Man, director Peyton Reed again banks on the fact that the biggest strength of his Marvel superhero is his ordinariness and likeability.

  • Sicario: Day of the Soldado really comes alive, in the blood, sweat and tears of the Mexicans seeking “paradiso”, one way or another, across an increasingly dangerous border.

  • Isle of Dogs is disappointing, in the stereotypes it wields, in the history it seems not to care for, in the clever jokes it can’t resist succumbing to, and ultimately in its treatment of the four-legged species it seems devoted to.

  • The Toni Collette starrer is a film of breathing, tangible horror…

  • The highest points of the film and its acutest observations — even if predictable — remain Mr Incredible Bob Parr’s struggles with reconciling to the success of his wife, Elastigirl Helen, in a new superhero role.

  • It’s a film of our times. As scientists underline that we are now into the ‘Anthropocene epoch’ — or a human-influenced age, for the first time in Earth’s history — and as man plays God with nature, Fallen Kingdom does well to catch on.

  • It is all too confusing in the beginning, and much too smart at times — again — for its own good. But as Ryan Reynolds gets other people to match his wits against, Deadpool 2 starts hitting the spots it wants too, much more effortlessly than its prequel.
