Also showing: Pusher, Private Peaceful and Hit & Run
Sunday 14 October 2012
Pusher (87 mins, 18)
Nicolas Winding Refn's Danish thriller gets a moody British remake, with Richard Coyle as a drug dealer who owes £55,000 to a crime lord, and Agyness Deyn as his long-suffering girlfriend. Coyle's penchant for Hoovering cocaine and smacking his friends with baseball bats makes him hard to root for.
Private Peaceful (103 mins)
The second adaptation of a Michael Morpurgo novel about Devonian farm boys in the First World War, Private Peaceful, inset top, is spavined by a budget that wouldn't have paid for the saddle bags in Spielberg's War Horse. It's well meaning, episodic and destined to be shown in school history lessons.
Hit & Run (100 mins, 15)
Dax Shepard and Kristen Bell are lovers on the run in this big-hearted tribute to 1970s road movies. Despite the screeching tyres and full-throttle soundtrack, it never quite gets into gear.
