An All-American superhero movie...with a plot
<i>Captain America: The First Avenger</i> gives its audience the most lengthy and satisfying back story to a superhero yet.
Poignant courtroom drama runs a bit dry
Redford's eighth film as director is a well-researched historical drama that boasts faultless production design and strong performances.
Worst film you will see this year
An ethnic-Australian film is rare, so when one <i>does</i> come out, we deserve better than worn-out cliches and predictable storytelling.
Risqué comedy's not a bad feature
<i>Bad Teacher</i> has a lot of good things going for it — Cameron Diaz, a great supporting cast and lots of un-PC humour. It just lacks depth.
Memorable send-off for Harry and friends
<i>Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows — Part 2</i> gives cinema's most enchanting series a truly memorable send-off.
Low-key charmer saved by star power
Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts: the two names alone are worth the ticket price. <i>Larry Crowne</i> isn't their best work, but it's likeable enough.
Third time lucky with more 'wow' factor
Director Michael Bay finally delivers a worthy third instalment to the ass-kicking, shape-shifting alien-robot franchise.
Sex drama dips into dullsville
<i>Sleeping Beauty</i> has been called controversial for its subject matter and frequent nudity, but it's not challenging or interesting enough.
Jim Carrey gets happy feet back
Kids will probably love <i>Mr Popper's Penguins</i> more than adults, but this family comedy is saved by some charming moments and great casting.
