Final Destination 5 (2011, dir. Steven Quale)

A group of office workers are killed off one by one after surviving a freak accident. Superior fifth instalment of the stunt death franchise, with ingenious kill sequences and a sense of fun throughout, plus a very well-staged plot reversal.

Gun Shy [AKA Salty] (2017, dir. Simon West)

A retired rock singer has to rescue his kidnapped wife. Oddball comedy-thriller with some good ideas and performances, but awkward logic and a lack of actual action. A bit of a mess, but not without its moments; Banderas seems to be enjoying himself.

The Boss (2016, dir Ben Falcone)

A disgraced mogul fights to get her old status back, with the reluctant help of her former PA. Inconsistent comedy with an over-reliance on semi-improvised insult battles rather than having a script that’s organically funny. A lesser McCarthy vehicle.

Baywatch (2017, dir. Seth Gordon)

A disgraced Olympic swimmer becomes a lifeguard. Patchy and overlong reprise of the 90s TV show. Some funny moments, but they’re spread over a thin plot, iffy CG and a reliance on beach bodies and grossout/insult humour to carry the day.

Want a second opinion? Here’s Xussia’s take.

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (2017, dir. David Soren)

Comics-loving best friends hypnotise their headteacher into becoming a superhero. Splendid animation – based on the Dav Pilkey books – that delivers a barrage of bottom jokes and a touching portrayal of childhood friendship. Recommended.

The Belko Experiment (2016, dir. Greg McLean)

Employees of a mysterious company are compelled to murder each other. Would-be black comedy better at delivering gloopy kills than in having much to say. Neither funny or subversive enough; it gets tiresome before 90 minutes are up.

Another perspective? Here’s Xussia’s view.
