Deadpool 2

  • US
  • 1h 59min
  • 15
  • Directed by: David Leitch
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds, Josh Brolin, Zazie Beetz, Morena Baccarin

When tragedy splinters Wade Wilson’s own life, it takes a meeting with a mutant kid (Dennison) and vengeful cyborg Cable (Brolin) to renew his sense of purpose. Filthy, ferocious and funny, it surpasses its predecessor by doubling down on the gleeful self-awareness and excess; the whole cast shines, and the climax is…

Edie

  • 3 stars
  • 2017
  • UK
  • 1h 37min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Simon Hunter
  • Cast: Sheila Hancock, Kevin Guthrie, Paul Brannigan
  • UK release: 25 May 2018

Edie (Hancock) was trapped in a loveless marriage for years, so when her husband dies, the 85-year-old takes advantage of her new freedom to go mountain-climbing in the Scottish Highlands. There’s charming chemistry between Hancock and co-star Guthrie, and the film is not unaware of how unprepared Edie is; unashamedly…

A Quiet Place

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 1h 35min
  • Directed by: John Krasinski
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, John Krasinski, Noah Jupe

Lee Abbott (Krasinski), his wife Evelyn (Blunt), son (Jupe) and deaf daughter (Simmonds) live and work in an empty dystopian world in complete silence, hiding from creatures who hunt by sound. Krasinski's third film as director is a smart, weird sci-fi frightener that is beautifully simple but thoughtfully composed.

Sherlock Gnomes

  • 2 stars
  • 2018
  • UK/US
  • PG
  • Directed by: John Stevenson
  • Cast: Emily Blunt, Johnny Depp, Michael Caine

When the gnomes of London go missing, the titular detective (Depp) and his long-suffering sidekick (Ejiofor) go looking for them. Despite vivid animation and a fine voice cast, there’s just not enough story to fuel this hardly-necessary sequel to the lacklustre 2011 original.

Solo: A Star Wars Story

  • 4 stars
  • 2018
  • US
  • 2h 14min
  • 12A
  • Directed by: Ron Howard
  • Cast: Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, Emilia Clarke, Donald Glover, Thandie Newton, Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Joonas Suotamo
  • UK release: 25 May 2018

The origin story of the young Han Solo (Ehrenreich), as he gets out of Corellia, meets Chewbacca (Suotamo) and Lando (Glover) for the first time, and runs into former lover Qi’ra (Clarke). Ehrenreich has just the right easy charm and despite some missteps it’s an enjoyable yarn with fine set-pieces.
