The Legend Of Hercules, 10/01/14
The first of two Hercules films to hit cinemas this year, this sword-and-sandals caper boasts the often dubious direction of Renny Harlin (Deep Blue Sea). Kellan Lutz (Twilight) stars as the titular hero in this laughable ‘epic’.
Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, 17/01/14
Chris Pine (Star Trek) stars in the latest attempt to bring Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan to the big screen. Director Kenneth Branagh (Thor) assembles an impressive cast, but fails to deliver any fireworks in this mildly entertaining action flick.
Ride Along, 17/01/14
A comedian whose star is certainly on the rise, Kevin Hart (Let Me Explain) manages to bring a few laughs as he partners up with Ice Cube (21 Jump Street) in this kinda funny but forgettable buddy-cop action/comedy from director Tim Story (Fantastic Four).
The Nut Job, 17/01/14
Will Arnett (Arrested Development), Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy) and Brendan Fraser (The Mummy) all lend their vocal talents to this weakly animated heist comedy that is guaranteed to make parents and kids alike regret going to the movies.
I, Frankenstein, 24/01/14
Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) teams-up with director Stuart Beattie (Tomorrow, When The War Began) and writer Kevin Grevioux (Underworld) to play Frankenstein’s monster in this terrible action/fantasy that is best completely forgotten.
That Awkward Moment, 31/01/14
Zac Efron (High School Musical) teams-up with future The Fantastic Four rising stars Miles Teller (The Spectacular Now) and Michael B. Jordan (Fruitvale Station) in this surprisingly funny bro-mantic comedy that lacks morality but has heart.
