  • CHIPS - Review

    The action comedy genre is one that rarely breeds results in a contemporary setting, often struggling to find a compatible balance between having a fast-paced, engaging narrative, while injecting comedy in the process, and where CHIPS is concerned, it falls short in both areas.

  • Trespass Against Us - Review

    When leaving the two lead roles in the hands of actors of the calibre of Fassbender and Gleeson, it works not only as a stamp of quality on proceedings, but adds such a degree of nuance and subtlety, which enriches the layered dynamic between the two characters.

  • A Cure For Wellness Review

    It’s this ambiguity which is the film’s greatest selling point, as we can never judge whether the lead is losing his mind, or if he’s genuinely on to something – and the whole experience lingers on this very mystery.
