The Avengers (2)
What you get from The Avengers is a crushing greyness. If Steed and Peel are not especially bothered by poisoned darts, evil doppelgangers or a swarm of mechanical armoured wasps, why should we be?
If Godzilla reminds you of anything as it climbs from the city sewers, it's crabby old man struggling out of bed on a December morning. Dean Devlin and Roland Emmerich's sense of fun is only fleetingly evident.
Deep Impact (2)
With characters like a lovestruck teenage astronomer and touchy- feely US President as representative of the human race, it's hard to care about the extinction of mankind. Bring on the Apocalypse, NOW!
This deeply stupid film purports to be a tender love story, a meaty action-adventure and a global disaster movie. No one involved seems to have realised that this can only result in a tedious jumble.
Dr Dolittle (PG)
Eddie Murphy makes a somewhat less likely Rex Harrison than Philip Schofield in the current stage revival. If it is butt-jokes and flatulent rodents you demand, then this film will meet your requirements.Reuse content
