Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018, dir. Peyton Reed)

Lang, Hank Pym and Lana re-team, this time to find Pym’s wife, long thought lost in the quantum realm. Superior Marvel adventure, all the better for its modest scale, humour, and invention in blending 3D, action and the conceit of the size-changing tech.

12 Strong (2018, dir. Nicolai Fuglsig)

A special forces team is dropped behind enemy lines in Afghanistan to take out an enemy stronghold. Well-shot but uninvolving post 9/11 drama, based on a true story. The usual battle movie cliches, though with occasional interesting Western genre flourishes.

War On Everyone (2016, dir. John Michael McDonagh)

Two bad cops try to snatch heist takings. After The Guard and Calvary, a disappointment from this writer/director. A stylized would-be comic thriller which gets as much wrong as it does right in mistaking context-free excess for fun.
