Two cops are put to the test by the baffling case of a rapper murdered on stage, but they are more concerned with escaping the daily grind of catching crooks than the machinations of the music industry.

In this smart and taut thriller from Ben Affleck, bank robbers are alarmed to discover that the manager they briefly took hostage (Rebecca Hall), lives in their blue collar Boston neighbourhood and may be able to identify them, despite the masks they wore. Leader Doug (Affleck) seeks out the woman and romance blossoms, without her realising that the object of her affection was involved in the raid. This enrages Doug's second-in-command and best friend Jem (Jeremy Renner), and as Doug contemplates going straight and leaving town with his new love, the gang's employer (Pete Postlethwaite) demands they carry out one last daring job. In addition to directing with flair and confidence, Affleck plays the central conflicted character with admirable subtlety, and there's also fine work by Jon Hamm as an FBI agent and Chris Cooper as Doug's incarcerated father. But everyone is eclipsed by the intensity of Renner as short-fused Jem, driven by loyalty to both his friends and his working-class roots.

Ira Levin's bestselling tale of extreme female makeovers is given a satirical update in this clumsy comedy from director Frank Oz. Matthew Broderick moves his high-powered TV-executive wife (Nicole Kidman) to the pastel-perfect Connecticut community of Stepford for a flawless "fembot" overhaul under the management of mayor Christopher Walken. But aside from some catty one-liners (courtesy of Addams Family Values screenwriter Paul Rudnick), the black comedy just isn't consistent or edgy enough as it lurches towards a ridiculous and nonsensical ending. There's also little in the way of tension or character development, while the impressive cast acts well below its ability - even the usually reliable Glenn Close and Bette Midler fail to add any real zing. Oz may have achieved the correct manicured look, but there's little else to crow about in this inept and stale "old wives' tale".

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.

This pleasing effort from director John Schlesinger glows with a homely period charm, but never descends into sentimentality.

The strong ensemble cast interplays superbly, and the scene where the lads march off for D-Day is particularly moving.

In this classic western, Henry Fonda's Wyatt Earp and Victor Mature's Doc Holliday are heading for that close shave at the OK Corral. Owing rather less to historical accuracy than more recent movies - Tombstone and Kevin Costner's Wyatt Earp - this John Ford picture boasts some fine sequences. The best is a dance in an unfinished church, a fine symbol of the "garden being fashioned from the wilderness" by the strong-arm methods of Fonda's self-righteous lawman. Filmed in expressive black and white against Monument Valley locations, the picture combines both the grandeur and the folksiness so typical of its director.

More than a few eyebrows shot skywards at the news that Ang Lee was to direct this science-fiction action drama, the big-screen treatment of yet another Marvel Comics character following on from the box-office success of X-Men, Spider-Man and Daredevil. After all, the director of The Ice Storm was hardly the obvious choice for a genre more noted for campy fun and destructive action than the subtleties of human relationships. What has emerged is a curate's egg of a movie that is unlikely to totally satisfy anyone. The childhood trauma that feeds Bruce Banner's rage is an oddly grim subplot for what began life as a summer blockbuster, while the later action scenes feel tacked on despite their technical virtuosity. Matters aren't helped by Eric Bana's detached performance as Bruce Banner, but Nick Nolte injects a soup├žon of fun as the older incarnation of his insane dad and Lee's use of editing - including split screens to suggest comic-strip frames - is quite innovative. Overall this is worth a look, if only to experience a rare but laudable example of big-budget Hollywood taking a risk.

Given that plot is never a key element of Jackie Chan's oeuvre, it's no surprise that only two elements really matter: the chemistry between the two inevitable buddies/partners and the quality of the action. Sadly, both are well below par in this Dublin-set farrago. Chan stars as cop Eddie Yang, whose search for evil crime lord Snakehead (Julian Sands) leads to the discovery of an ancient medallion and a kidnapped boy, who does little but sit unnaturally still and look inscrutable. Inexplicably semi-dubbed and looking like it was edited on a bacon slicer, this barely releasable mess couldn't possibly get any worse until Lee Evans deftly applies the tin lid with an excruciatingly irritating performance. Even Chan's undoubted screen charm can't rescue this inept mess.

This sequel was shot at the same time as its more illustrious predecessor, but without the knowledge of its cast, who sued producer Alexander Salkind for back-pay. Subtitled The Revenge of Milady, the action brings Faye Dunaway to the fore, as she seeks to trap the dashing blades by imprisoning Michael York's beloved, Raquel Welch. The original cast is obviously still in the swing of things and there is a nice demonstration of screen villainy from Christopher Lee, but director Richard Lester can't resist tilting the swashbuckling into slapstick, with uneven results.

Given that plot is never a key element of Jackie Chan's oeuvre, it's no surprise that only two elements really matter: the chemistry between the two inevitable buddies/partners and the quality of the action. Sadly, both are well below par in this Dublin-set farrago. Chan stars as cop Eddie Yang, whose search for evil crime lord Snakehead (Julian Sands) leads to the discovery of an ancient medallion and a kidnapped boy, who does little but sit unnaturally still and look inscrutable. Inexplicably semi-dubbed and looking like it was edited on a bacon slicer, this barely releasable mess couldn't possibly get any worse until Lee Evans deftly applies the tin lid with an excruciatingly irritating performance. Even Chan's undoubted screen charm can't rescue this inept mess.

Four years after he first played Lieutenant Columbo in the TV movie Prescription Murder, Peter Falk reprised the role in this pilot for the long-running TV series. Based on a story by William Link and Richard Levinson, who created the original character, the tale sees the perceptive detective on the trail of a lawyer who has passed off her rich husband's murder as a kidnap plot. Lee Grant was rewarded with an Emmy nomination for her bravura performance as the lawyer, and Falk is typically sly as he seemingly stumbles towards the solution.

Finally washing up on these shores almost a year after its US release, this would-be romantic comedy served as evidence of Angelina Jolie's post-Oscar poor judgement. Here she plays Lanie Kerrigan, a has-it-all Seattle TV reporter (great job, great boyfriend, great big hair) who is informed by a tramp known as Prophet Jack (Tony Shalhoub) that she has a week to live. Cue much re-evaluating of life goals and cod-philosophising about "living every day as if it were your last". For Lanie, that includes falling into bed with her hitherto loathed cameraman (Edward Burns) - no bad thing if the leads generated any chemistry at all. For much of the film, however, Jolie gives Lanie such a brittle, vain and shallow edge that it's hard to care.

Tommy Lee Jones plays the emergency chief attempting to save Los Angeles from molten lava in this taut, effects-laden disaster movie.

The result is a gripping and spectacular action fantasy in which MacArthur Park does indeed melt in the dark.

Made from a script that was rejected by every major Hollywood studio, this is a storming portrait of urban alienation in America. Some stateside critics were quick to brand the film racist, as Michael Douglas's white-collar worker snaps one day, abandons his car in gridlock and engages in a violent spree that sees him destroy a Korean store and take on a Latino gang. But Douglas is no racist vigilante. In director Joel Schumacher's bold, believable and darkly funny film, he is a man consumed by rage at his own powerlessness, who reacts with violence to anyone who tries to prevent him from reaching "home" - now more of a concept than a place. The film loses momentum towards the end, but Douglas gives a superb performance and he's matched by the excellent Robert Duvall as an ageing, world-weary cop tackling his last case before retirement.

Old-fashioned star power from Julia Roberts and Clive Owen illuminates this snappy espionage caper, though it's never quite as clever as it should be. Former CIA agent Claire Stenwick (Roberts) and ex-MI6 spook Ray Koval (Owen) are a couple with a history, as their first encounter at the start of the movie proves. Years later, they are working in counter-intelligence for rival multinationals - ostensibly to help protect their latest products, but actually to scam their feuding employers (played gleefully by Tom Wilkinson and Paul Giamatti) - and they're in love. Or at least they would be if they could trust one another. There are double-crosses, glamorous international locations and flirtatious dialogue aplenty, and the film spins an entertaining web that offers a jazzy modern take on 1960s caper yarns (much like the Ocean's Eleven franchise). Unfortunately, the elaborate plotting by writer/director Tony Gilroy (the Bourne trilogy, Michael Clayton) rather crowds out the fizz the story needs, though the potent chemistry of the stars at least means the time passes pleasantly.

What's this - a cheery cannibal comedy? Priest director Antonia Bird's stunning mix of gut-spilling gore and Carry On-style banter is a shocker that you'll either love for its edgy tone, or absolutely hate because it's so in-your-face. Inspired by the tragic Donner Pass disaster of 1846-7, the film stars Robert Carlyle as a devious maneater who decimates the inhabitants of a mountain outpost to keep human flesh on his winter menu. Containing as many surprises as Scream and all the hilarity of Austin Powers, Bird's highly disturbing and thought-provoking film features a couple of impeccable performances. Carlyle etches the strongest portrait of pure evil since Anthony Hopkins in The Silence of the Lambs, while Guy Pearce is equally brilliant as the army captain who tries to stop Carlyle's bloodthirsty exploits before he becomes addicted to the same diet. The insane climax is yet another off-kilter delight in this intensely hilarious chiller.

Alongside Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs, this was the most astonishing and hard-hitting directorial debut of the 1990s. John Singleton was a mere 23 years old when he wrote and directed this powerhouse picture about growing up black in inner-city America. Presenting a rougher and readier view than Spike Lee on the same subject, Singleton largely avoids sermonising in this brutally candid portrait of the realities of LA street life. Cuba Gooding Jr, Morris Chestnut and Ice Cube give impressive performances as the friends for whom the future looks uncertain (if not downright unlikely), while Larry (now Laurence) Fishburne is outstanding as Gooding Jr's disciplinarian father. Credible roles for women are usually at a premium in African-American cinema, but the boys' mothers are beautifully observed and sensitively played by Angela Bassett and Tyra Ferrell. Singleton deservedly received Oscar nominations for both his direction and screenplay.

The doyenne of American critics, Pauline Kael, once described Bruce Lee as "the Fred Astaire of martial arts", and he's at his balletic, brilliant best in this kung fu classic that, tragically, proved to be his last completed film. When his sister commits suicide rather than succumb to the henchmen of a ruthless master criminal, Lee leaves the Shaolin temple where he teaches kung fu and spiritual discipline to become a James Bond-like secret agent. When he arrives at an island fortress to take part in a notoriously brutal martial arts tournament, he finds himself having to smash an opium ring and a white slavery racket, as well as fight for his own life. Director Robert Clouse broadens the action from the intimacy of Lee's earlier movies, in the process producing a series of fast, furious, intricate and athletic fight scenes that, in the opinion of many aficionados, have yet to be bettered. John Saxon and Jim Kelly provide muscular support, but it's the Hong Kong cast that catches the eye, notably Yang Sze, who is still one of chop-socky's most hissable villains. It's clear from this why the Lee legend lives on.
