Hercule Poirot holidays in Egypt; murder is soon afoot. Quasi-sequel to Murder on the Orient Express. Breezy escapist fun with a rich cast of character actors and bright young things hamming/preening respectively, though its clumsy treatment of non-whites plays as racist rather than as innocent comic relief.
Two retired lawmen are recruited to hunt down and kill Bonnie and Clyde. Handsome but slow period thriller that can’t quite make up its mind if it wants to go for drama or action. Well-played, though, with a great Thomas Newman score, evoking Road To Perdition.
Two conmen take down a mob boss in revenge for the killing of a friend. Jaunty 1930s-set caper with exceptional production design, fun performances, and an engaging plot. Recommended.
An American archaeologist races Nazis to a mystical artefact. Peerless action-adventure, expertly balancing thrills, romance, danger, comic moments, old-school stunt work and still-impressive visual effects. Still the state of this particular art.
