Transformers: The Last Knight (12A) – what’s it about? The race is on to find an artifact that’s hidden on earth before it can be used to destroy the world.
I’m not too sure what to say that you don’t already know if you’ve seen any of the previous movies as it really continues on in the same lines. It’s what you expect really from a Transformers movie, some fighting, story and some big ass robots. It was good but I don’t know, it just seemed really long, I thought I’d been in the cinema for way over 3 hours but it wasn’t that long. It was very flashy as all these films are, lots of graphics and good scenes with the Transformers. It was a good piece of entertainment – a good mindless movie but nothing special. If you like this rebooted Transformers universe then you’ll probably enjoy it.
Despicable Me 3 (U) – what’s it about? Gru finds out he has a long lost twin brother, the pair meet up and Gru is persuaded to teach him how to be a villain by committing one last crime.
So the third adventure of Gru and the gang and what to say, I’m not sure – I liked it but it just didn’t seem as strong or funny as the previous movies. I think though it’s one of those gems that when you watch it again you pick up on more. It still had some good moments and it’s generally a fun movie for all the family. If you like the previous ones it’s still definitely worth a watch.
Baby Driver (15) – what’s it about? Baby is a get-away driver who is forced to work for a crime boss until his debts are repaid.
I wasn’t sure what to expect from this one, the adverts looked good but I was really pleasantly surprised with how great this one was. It had a good story-line, characters and action too. There were a couple of bits that felt like my heart had skipped a beat – I really got engrossed by it. I would definitely recommend seeing it if you like a good crime/robbers movie as it was very well done!
Spider-Man: Homecoming (12A) – what’s it about? After the battle with Captain America, Peter Parker goes back to being a friendly neighbourhood Spider-Man but a villain doesn’t leave where he lives alone for long…
Well first off this isn’t an origin story of Spider-Man which was pretty refreshing as that’s been done over and over again. This I think is probably one of the better Spider-Man movies to date, well most definitely better than the last one anyway. It is very much in line with the current Marvel movies style and fits in nicely with the universe they’ve built up on the big screen appearances, especially with a guest staring of Tony Stark and other bits to link back too. Anyway yep, a well done movie, some laughs, some action and a cool-ass wing suit I totally want, it’s definitely worth checking out if you like all the Marvel movies.
