This film is as it says on the tin. Neeson plays his post-Taken role of grunting his way through. Few twists and turns, nothing too predictable or unpredictable. A good way to spend some time.

Didnt like this at all. Jokes dont cross across the pond it seems. Almost walked out about the half way mark.

Saw this as part of the Jameson Film Festival, and I, like many of the audience, absolutely loved this. I love Wes Anderson, and he has woven his magic once again here. Great characters, great shots and great dialogue. Ralph Fiennes was amazing in it and stole the show. See this. Stop reading and book tickets, i'll wait.......done it?

I went into this film thinking they would be destroying the good namesake of the original. While they did escape this, i do feel they could have done so much better. Action was acceptable, and acting was good (though i felt Oldman's parts were prolonged to ensure the studio got their moneys worth from him). Overall an ok movie to lose the best part of two hours to, but nothing amazing.

Its a classic Statham film. Ever since he first came on the scene, Jason has been doing pretty much the same film. Tough English man who has to chase revenge/a girl/jewellery while grunting his lines. Predictable, but still entertaining. This is more of the same. Wandering around Miami searching for revenege and money. Hits most of the right action spots and keeps you awake. All I need from Jason

I was looking forward to this film ever since I saw the first trailer. It didnt necessary live up to the hype, however I throughly enjoyed it. Am huge Carell and Carey fan so i loved their scenes and interactions. Am also a huge magic fan, so loved seeing the theatrics. Naturally i dont think this is for everyone, but for a comedy it holds its own very well

This film confused me. Why would it be made? It added absolutely nothing to the concept, in fact it made it worse. Characters went from being students, to hardened killers, and back to students so many times it was laughable. This is an example of the studios cashing in on an individuals new found fame (Hemsworth)

Went to this with some good expectations as Training Day is one of my fav films ever (one of, calm down :p) and was interested to see what could ev done with this material. I wasn't disappointed. High octane action that will keep your heart pumping all the way through. Hugely enjoyable. Not a load of deep deep plot, but the story really revolves around the relationship between the two leads. Laughs, yells and high emotions

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey

I grew up with Seasame Street and Elmo. It was a large part of my childhood routine. When I first saw trailers for this I was very excited. I managed to catch a preview of this and I must say I loved it. I genueinely laughed and cried during this documentary. Was a great trip through Kevin's life as well as the story behind the street and the creators themselves. I would urge anyone who is even remotely interested in the material to see it.

Throughly enjoyed this film. Set in a fantasy setting the story whips you round many characters with ease and the plot runs smoothly. Some excellent CGI pieces and action scenes set this off as a movie to look out for. Highly recommended

Slow moving but great tension and acting from all involved. Amazing that this is based on a true story as there is so much hidden truths and lies within this story. One to watch for sure.

First off I am big Wahlberg fan and watch all of his projects. Some are great (departed, four brothers) others not so much...(the happening). This film managed to keep me interested every minute with twists, turns, and action packed scenes. Definitly one to watch.
