Harry Brown- (2009)

Inevitably, this feature-length debut for director Daniel Barber will be labelled a Death Wish for the noughties, though it has as much to say about social conditions in neglected inner-city areas as it does about Michael Caine's doddery dispenser of justice. Caine plays the title character, a 70-something ex-serviceman whose life on a run-down estate ruled by gangs of feral teenagers is thrown upside down when his best friend is murdered. Determined to see justice done, Harry then hobbles into gun-toting, death-dealing action. This gritty British revenge thriller is a shade melodramatic, especially in its portrayal of the gangs - if the kids suddenly sprouted horns, you would hardly be surprised. But Caine is surprisingly convincing as the septuagenarian avenger, even though it's a little uncomfortable to root for a vigilante, no matter what the justification for his actions. No doubt, fans of Gran Torino will not be complaining.

The English language - and dialogue in particular - is a tricky blighter for action stars such as Jean-Claude Van Damme and Arnold Schwarzenegger, and it also proves a problem for the heavily accented Dolph Lundgren in this awful action adventure. The makers played safe and cast the non-syllabic one as a Soviet agent, who is sent to a warring African state to take out a resistance leader. However, because Lundgren is the good guy, he has a change of heart and converts to the forces of freedom. Inexplicably, this was a big hit on video, perhaps because there's loads of mindless mass destruction, but the script and the performances make Rambo look positively Wildean.

Elf director Jon Favreau's action-packed adaptation of Chris Van Allsburg's children's book is great family entertainment. In this intergalactic Jumanji, brothers Jonah Bobo and Josh Hutcherson are taught life lessons when they play a dusty board game found in the cellar that thrusts them into outer space to face meteor showers, a defective robot and lizard-like aliens. The witty script generates laughs from the cryonic freezing of the boys' sister, but there are touching moments too, like the revelation of can-do astronaut Dax Shepard's true identity. Having the entire universe just outside their front door creates huge imaginative scope, while the terrific retro Dan Dare-style design matches the film's refreshing reliance on old-school special effects. Favreau brings a delightful sense of childlike wonder to this stellar comic-book fantasy adventure that offers fun - and scares - for all age groups.

Purists will shudder at what Steven Spielberg has done to JM Barrie's classic tale here, but their protests are likely to be ignored by those children who prefer old-fashioned derring-do to be brightened up with some 1990s trimmings. In this take on Peter Pan, Robin Williams plays the grown-up Peter, a ruthless business pirate who has no time for his family and no memory of his magical past. That changes, however, when his children are kidnapped and he gets a visit from Tinkerbell (Julia Roberts). As good as Williams is, the film is stolen by an almost unrecognisable Dustin Hoffman, whose Hook is suitably pantomimic (he is said to have modelled his performance partly on the larger-than-life screen image of Terry-Thomas) yet oddly sympathetic, a villain lost without his nemesis. The scenes between him and Bob Hoskins as Smee are a delight and, although the sentimentality gets a little sticky at times, this remains rousing entertainment.

Nora Ephron, the writer of When Harry Met Sally..., comes up trumps again as co-writer and director of this gloriously old-fashioned and unashamedly manipulative romantic comedy. Tom Hanks, recently widowed, moves to a new home in Seattle where he just grieves and grieves. His young son, concerned over his dad's state of mind, calls a radio phone-in and when Hanks himself goes on air, he pours his heart out. That's storyline one. Storyline two features Meg Ryan, a Baltimore journalist who hears the broadcast, recognises a kindred lonely heart and starts tracking Hanks down. Hanks's son, played by Ross Malinger, becomes their matchmaker, while the Cary Grant/Deborah Kerr weepie of 1957, An Affair to Remember, is always on TV and serves as a touchstone, providing the inspiration for the movie's climax at the top of the Empire State Building. For nearly two hours, Ephron keeps her marvellous stars apart, a potentially dangerous tactic that works superbly. In the summer of Jurassic Park, Sleepless in Seattle proved to be a box-office smash; the team subsequently reunited for You've Got Mail in 1998.

This frail but winsome romantic comedy reunited Tom Hanks with both his Sleepless in Seattle co-star, Meg Ryan, and director, Nora Ephron. Billed as the screen's first internet love story, it is a reworking of Ernst Lubitsch's classic The Shop around the Corner, in which the stars play rivals in the bookshop business who unknowingly fall for each other in an online chat-room. But it's rarely as amusing as it should be and, for the most part, is frustratingly unromantic, with the leads coming together more like merged files than infatuated lovers. What's more, Ephron's combination of battle-of-the-sexes comedy and the struggle between community and capitalism (that tries to echo the style of Frank Capra) lacks social resonance. However, the latter-day screwball tale is certainly slickly staged and played with consummate ease, and Ryan and her bookshop staff exude a pleasant feeling of cosiness.

Following in the footsteps of such movies as Being John Malkovich and I {Heart} Huckabees, which treat their outrageous scenarios as more drama than comedy, comes Stranger than Fiction. The loopy premise here is that mild-mannered tax inspector Will Ferrell begins to hear voices - well, actually just one voice, which seems to be narrating his life.

Those unruly schoolgirl sirens hunt for pirate treasure but end up searching for laughs instead in this very sloppy sequel to the 2007 revamp. Sagging under the weight of too much plot - Rupert Everett's headmistress Miss Fritton discovers she's related to an infamous buccaneer, so the girls go on a hunt for a treasure trove, but a woman-hating secret society wants to upset their plans - this sub-Carry On romp wearily coasts along on the lines of a rudimentary old-school farce rather than anything resembling wit. Everett's parody of Camilla Parker-Bowles feels stale this time around and Colin Firth's embarrassment at having to play the character's ageing love interest has clearly increased. Cast additions include Girls Aloud's Sarah Harding as a rock chick, which is hardly a stretch. Yet she's nowhere near as bad as the depressingly camp villain played by David Tennant, though he does sum up the lacklustre proceedings with the line "Oh, this is interminable".

So she invents a fiancé using a photo of her with a complete stranger taken at a wedding. Of course, it's not long before her bosses want to meet the man (Jay Mohr), so she has to track him down, complicating the secret affair she's having with a corporate sleaze (a fun performance from Kevin Bacon). It's preposterous, perhaps, but sweetly done.

You have to admire them for getting a sequel into the cinemas just two years after the first Mummy became the surprise hit of "Phantom Menace summer" in 1999. And that's with all the key cast members reunited under the direction of Stephen Sommers. This sense of continuity pulls the franchise in line with the Indiana Jones films, to which this owes so much with its tomb-raiding themes, period colour and deft mix of comedy and action. To praise it faintly as more of the same does a disservice to the slick bravado of Sommers and the technical wizardry of Industrial Light and Magic, who created the screen-dominating CGI effects. If you liked The Mummy's old-fashioned thrills and state-of-the-art digital monsters, you won't be disappointed - indeed, there's an army of dog-like Anubis warriors that stretches as far as the eye can see. (If only David Lean had had a laptop.) And Rachel Weisz has been unashamedly sexed up for those who get a kick out of gold bikinis and girl-fighting.

Director Robert Zemeckis's blockbusting trilogy went slightly off the rails with the second segment, but it got right back on track (literally) with this concluding instalment. Shot back-to-back with Part II, the film is set predominantly in the Old West and offers Michael J Fox the chance to indulge in all the sharpshooting situations that made Saturday matinée western serials such a treat for millions of children (including, one suspects, Zemeckis and screenwriter Bob Gale). As before, the plot revolves around the need to tinker with time and the problem of how to power the trusty DeLorean car so that Fox can get back to the present. And once more Gale and Zemeckis have come up with an ingenious plot and a clutch of in-jokes, including the casting of western favourites Dub Taylor, Harry Carey Jr and Pat Buttram as a trio of old timers in the saloon. The inimitable Fox is again on cracking form as Marty McFly and Christopher Lloyd's romance with Mary Steenburgen is surprisingly touching. Using the special effects intelligently, Zemeckis stages a spectacular steam-train finale and neatly ties up the trilogy's loose ends. Look out for a cameo appearance from ZZ Top.

Woody Harrelson and Juliette Lewis play serial killers turned into folk heroes by media excesses in this striking movie that was criticised by original story author Quentin Tarantino after it was largely rewritten by director Oliver Stone and others. Ambitious, unrelenting and inventive, Stone's controversial landmark film excites the intellect while bludgeoning the senses. It blends naturalistic violence with stylised visuals and commandeers every available cinematic trick, plus the TV sitcom format, to put across its searing message. Stone utilises a dazzling range of techniques to underscore the media's obsession with violent crime, and delivers one of the most arrestingly provocative additions to the debate since A Clockwork Orange. Love it or hate it, this all-out image assault is a unique if disturbing experience.

How could this possibly fail - a western about hidden Apache gold with more stars in the cast than there are twists, swindles and red herrings in the plot? Yet fail it did, and there was nothing that such powerhouse performers as Gregory Peck, Omar Sharif and Edward G Robinson could do about it. The executives at Columbia must shoulder some of the blame for ordering extensive re-editing. Carl Foreman's script may be cliché ridden, but it is one of the pleasures of a cowboy movie that you know exactly what you're going to get and here you get it in spades, thanks to J Lee Thompson's vigorous direction.

In the third film based on author Robert Ludlum's bestsellers, former CIA agent Jason Bourne (Matt Damon) hits the ground running - and from then on the pace never slackens. The subtle and simple script is dazzling, as Bourne zips through stunning global locations to discover the truth about his past and take revenge on those responsible for his brainwashed plight. Damon has really made the role of the troubled assassin his own, and returning director Paul Greengrass employs the same hand-held camera technique he used in The Bourne Supremacy to add immediacy and up-close-and-personal thrills to the terrific stunts. With flashbacks to both previous episodes, and stars Joan Allen and Julia Stiles returning to marvellous effect, this instalment is essentially one long chase that never loses its grip or credibility. Nothing is overplayed, from the scary surveillance tracking methods to the high-level corruption, making this a superbly crafted masterclass in intelligent action film-making.

Originally meant to be a serious drama (called $3,000) about a man buying a prostitute for the night, this turned into a delightful romantic comedy in the hands of Garry Marshall and sent the career of star Julia Roberts into the stratosphere. Co-star Richard Gere didn't do too badly, either - he'd been on a downward spiral before the role of tycoon Edward Lewis came along. On screen they make the "hooker falls for a millionaire in Beverly Hills" tale completely plausible, aided by Marshall's glossy direction, the hit-filled soundtrack, a perky screenplay from JF Lawton (who also scripted the thriller Under Siege) and hilarious support from Marshall stalwart Hector Elizondo.
