A mortal becomes embroiled in a war between Egyptian gods. Campy and intermittently spectacular, this is still two hours of character actors hamming in front of variably-lit greenscreens.
The younger brother of a noble prince is a reluctant quest participant. Handsomely-mounted stoner fantasy romp, with a good cast struggling to make the most of a weak script. A handful of funny moments if you’re feeling indulgent, but that’s about it.
Humans and renegade orcs band together to save a world. Lovingly-made, detailed, and well-shot for 3D, this is nevertheless a standard greenscreen-heavy sword and sorcery flick which offers little by way of originality in either its characters or story.
The eponymous retired hitman is compelled to honour a debt. Less fresh than the 2014 original, but Chapter 2 gains confidence as it proceeds, expanding the series’ world and throwing in a few inventive action set-pieces. Laurence Fishburne cameos hammily.
Two European brigands help China defend its empire from monsters. Intermittently undeniably spectacular, with some keen use of 3D, this is nevertheless a very straightforward fantasy siege movie which feels oddly bland, secondhand, and compromised.
An expert in magical wildlife causes inadvertent chaos in 20s New York. Gorgeous to look at and impeccably cast, this is nevertheless minor-league expanded Potter franchise stuff, more concerned with setting up series plot arcs than telling its own tale.
