A psychiatrist’s visions of his dead daughter lead him to confront the secrets of his youth. Initially contrived but nevertheless effective supernatural thriller with plenty of jump scares and a couple of interesting ideas.
One night at a motel on the California/Nevada border, where no-one is who they appear to be. Twisty-turny self-conscious comedy-thriller; lots of fun if you go with it, though the movie’s stately pace may frustrate some.
A dramatisation of the hunt for and killing of Osama Bin Laden. Sober and focused, with an eye for detail and on the selling of its version of events as truth through the use of faux documentary techniques, this works as an intelligent thriller throughout.
A mother has to break into the security-protected home where thieves have her children. A straightforward variant of Panic Room which despite decent central performances, doesn’t find much to do once its premise is established.
A bodyguard is assigned to protect the wayward daughter of an embattled corporate executive. Smart, tight little thriller with a focus on relationships as well as on low-key but still effective action, marking out the director as one to watch.
Super stylised gangster film set during prohibition. A very strong ensemble cast chews though a tight script with relish and Connery is ‘outshtanding’. Always worth your time.
An elite anti-terrorist squad battles to get an asset across a hostile city. Clunky actioner mistaking thuggishness for badassdom; unlikeable characters don’t help, and the wasting of Uko Iwais is nigh unforgivable. Fourth and least of the Berg/Wahlberg flicks to date.
