    Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio

    ★★★★

    Beautifully made and surprisingly touching. However, the songs tend to be lyrically awkward and (more significantly) get in the way of the story being told without really helping to articulate the characters.

  • Ambulance

    ★★★

    Second watch: have to admit the drone shots are highly effective in creating tension and momentum to what comes down to a feature length string of car chases.

    The Gray Man

    ★★½

    A expensively bland outline of a globe trotting spy action thriller. A plethora of overly elaborate cg action sequences that disassemble themselves as they play out doesn’t help the experience.

  • Prey

    ★★★½

    The Predator concept works best when things are kept simple. And this instalment is the first one in a long time to get that right, running the opposite direction from the overly elaborate yet totally pointless setup of The Predator. Very effective and creditable on its own.
