Chasing Mavericks

Rating 2 1/2

(Cineplex Odeon Victoria) A young surfer under the tutelage of a local legend aspires to ride Northern California's most dangerous wave. It's an entertaining dip into a world many talk about, but few have ever sampled. With Jonny Weston, Gerard Butler and Elisabeth Shue.

- Roger Moore. G

Cloud Atlas

(Cineplex Odeon Victoria, SilverCity, Star) Six separate but interlocking stories unfold across the globe and over centuries. With Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Jim Broadbent and Hugo Weaving. 14A

The Dark Knight Rises

Rating 4 1/2

(Imax) Christopher Nolan delivers everything his third Bat-movie required as he pits Bruce Wayne against his own alter ego, and the world against a raving madman in a mask. While it follows genre formula to a T, this epic reel also picks up on the bloody threads of the French Revolution as Nolan gives form to the Occupy movement, and the public desire to hang corporate bankers from the highest tree. Smart, cinematic and skilfully executed at every level, The Dark Knight Rises proves you can make a socially provocative and politically subversive statement and sell it as top-notch escapism.

Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman star. - Katherine Monk. PG

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days

(Caprice) An adolescent boy tries to survive summer misadventures in such fraught situations as swimming at the public pool and going camping. With Zachary Gordon and Devon Bostick. G

End Of Watch

Rating 3

(Caprice) A frightening on-the-run down the streets of South Central Los Angeles with two policeman (Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena) whose teasing banter provides a funny counterpoint to the drugs, murder and child abuse outside. The drama is piled to the sky, but there's a humanity that draws us in. - Jay Stone. (18A)


Rating 3

(Cineplex Odeon Victoria, SilverCity) Sharing similarities with his earlier film Cast Away, this Robert Zemeckis feature offers up a spectacular start to what amounts to a survival story.

The only difference is where Tom Hanks was seeking a way to get off a deserted island in Cast Away, Flight features Denzel Washington as a commercial pilot struggling to come clean after a tragic crash.

Washington is nothing short of tremendous as the boozy flyboy Whip Whitaker, but the script moves in circles as it tries to separate the idea of personal responsibility from perceived heroism without success.

- Katherine Monk. 14A

Fun Size

(Caprice, Star) On Halloween night,

a high school girl misplaces her preteen brother. One too many jokey references to child molestation ensue. With Victoria Justice and Thomas Mann. - Michael Phillips. PG

Hotel Transylvania

(Cineplex Odeon Westshore, SilverCity, Star) In this animated film, Dracula has his hands full with a birthday for his daughter at his monster resort, and things get complicated when an ordinary human stumbles onto the scene. With the voices of Adam Sandler, Andy Samberg, Kevin James and Selena Gomez. G

Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D

Rating 3

(Caprice, Roxy) A group of Paleolithic animal pals tries to survive a continental cataclysm in the fourth instalment of the Ice Age series. The script has a cheap habit of copying other cartoon material, but the results are both entertaining and life-affirming.

With the voices of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary and Queen Latifah. - Katherine Monk. G


Rating 3

(Cineplex Odeon Victoria, Cineplex Odeon Westshore, SilverCity) In the future, a low-level hired gun who disposes of mob targets sent back in time has to chase down an escaped target - a future version of himself. With Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. - Jay Stone. 14A

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted

Rating 4

(Caprice, Roxy) An animated film that's vertiginous, explosive, ridiculous, frantic and anti-Canadian (they joke about our "work ethic"). Inspired 3-D and non-stop silliness

make this the most fun you can have at the movies. - Jay Stone. G

The Man With the Iron Fists

(Cineplex Odeon Victoria, SilverCity) In a village in feudal China, warriors, assassins and a lone blacksmith clash over a fortune in gold. With Russell Crowe, Rza, Lucy Liu. 18A

The Odd Life of Timothy Green

(Caprice) A childless couple bury a box in their backyard, containing all of their wishes for an infant. Soon, a child is born, though Timothy Green is not all that he appears. G

The Paper Boy

(Cineplex Odeon Victoria) In a muggy Florida backwater, an idealistic reporter enlists his hotshot writing partner, his aimless younger brother and a sexpot death-row groupie to investigate the case of a convicted killer. With Matthew McConaughey, Zac Efron, David Oyelowo and Nicole Kidman. 14A

Paranormal Activity 4

Rating 1

(Cineplex Odeon Westshore, Empire Capitol 6, SilverCity) The surveillance cameras are on again in this story of a spooky kid (Brady Allen) who goes to live with the family across the street, bringing with him an invisible friend. We watch webcams and cell-phone cameras, waiting in vain for something to happen.

- Jay Stone. 14A

Searching For Sugar Man

Rating 4

(Empire University 4) Malik Bendjelloul's movie about a little-known folk singer named Rodriguez is easily the feel-good movie of the season and promises to surprise even the most jaded cynic with its heart, humour and historical significance. I'd tell you more, but I'd spoil the sweet sense of surprise. - Katherine Monk. PG

Wreck-It Ralph 3D

Rating 3

He migrates to another game - a children's candyland fantasy - and helps a little girl (Sarah Silverman) find herself. It's a familiar plot, helped by ingenious design. - Jay Stone. G
