The Lazarus Effect (2015, dir. David Gelb)

Attempts to create a serum to reanimate the dead go predictably awry. Flatliners meets Lucy in this by-the-numbers lab-bound horror/thriller in which a decent cast try their best to get through a rote script.

Logan (2017, dir. James Mangold)

2029. An aging Logan and a dying Xavier commit to one last stand. Overlong and clunky in parts, this is nevertheless an elegiac and fittingly serious send-off, riffing on time-worn western and road movie themes.

Locked In (AKA Monolith) (2016, dir. Ivan Silvestrini)

A mother and son are stranded in the desert in a hi-tech car. Well-shot but narratively thin, this simplistic thriller struggles to make the most of its Knight Rider meets Cujo premise, settling for the odd striking image over plausibility.

Big Hero 6 (2014, dir. Don Hall & Chris Williams)

A boy genius – and his personal care robot – battle the supervillain who’s stolen his invention. Slick, straightforward, and gorgeous to look at, this manga-influenced Disney ‘toon is a linear but fun ride, with some effective emotional moments.
