An ageing secret service agent, tormented by his failure to save the life of John F Kennedy in 1963, is drawn into a battle of wits with a sinister CIA-trained assassin out to kill the current president.

Hostel: Part II- (2007)

Writer/director Eli Roth's deft sequel to his 2005 original has increased production values, better character development and a more mature style. Hostel featured male backpackers being tortured for sport, but the genders are switched here, as three young American girls are lured to Slovakia for a spa break. Instead, they find themselves auctioned off as victims to satisfy the sick and violent fantasies of the privileged. The blood flows copiously, but it's the moody evocation of sheer depravity through suggestion that provides most impact, as Roth creates a terrifying atmosphere where the plight of the victims is keenly felt. The hardcore theme of man's inhumanity to man is reinforced by the surprise narrative swerves and some well-judged gallows humour.

John Carpenter's cult classic gets a contemporary reworking in this exciting action thriller. The English-language debut of director Jean-François Richet, it maintains the original's basic concept, but brings both protagonists and story into the 21st century. Focusing more on individuals and their relationships rather than pure action, this simple urban western is set in an isolated, sparsely manned Detroit police station under siege during its final night before closure. The aim of the relentless assailants is to retrieve laid-back crime lord Laurence Fishburne, which forces the prisoners and cops inside into an uneasy alliance to stay alive. Every frame of this film crackles with raw energy, as Richet cranks up the tension, economically exploiting sight, sound and extreme violence to gripping effect. The acting is enjoyable, too - despite some corny dialogue and clichéd characters - with Ethan Hawke's emotionally scarred police sergeant a particular standout.

This is the first ever western shot in Spain, its standing set later used for Sergio Leone's Dollars trilogy. The title role in this super spoof is played by British actor Kenneth More at his most diffident, and the director is the great Raoul Walsh, who films in the grand tradition of the genre. Fifties sex symbol Jayne Mansfield provides the love interest and there's a touching musical interlude in which she croons In the Valley of Love, dubbed by Connie Francis. The film's soundtrack is especially witty - check out that primitive car in Robert Morley's garage - and there's the added value of an entertaining Anglo-American supporting cast. Did you know that, with his roles in this film, Ramsbottom Rides Again and Carry On Cowboy, Sidney James appeared in all three British westerns?

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. The costumes were nominated for an Oscar.

Rosie Perez also gives one of her usual performances, shrieking the place down when she discovers that hubby Cage has divided his lottery winnings with waitress Bridget Fonda.

The last film that Mike Figgis made prior to achieving long-overdue international recognition with Leaving Las Vegas, this version of Terence Rattigan's old theatrical warhorse is a polished, if slightly old-fashioned, piece of work. However, it doesn't bear comparison with Anthony Asquith's 1951 adaptation, in which Michael Redgrave gave a more finely shaded performance than Albert Finney does here as the timid, under-appreciated schoolmaster, Crocker-Harris. Jean Kent and Nigel Patrick were also much more callous than Greta Scacchi and Matthew Modine as the couple who cuckold him. This was a curious choice for Figgis, perhaps, but the result is still an affecting tale.

There's plenty going on in returning director Jon Favreau's sequel to the smash-hit original, though it does feel like rather overfamiliar territory. Departing from the character's Marvel comic storylines, screenwriter Justin Theroux has Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr, good as ever) struggling with superhero fame, shattered relationships, governmental pressure and a debilitating form of blood poisoning. Meanwhile, Russian inventor Ivan Vanko (Mickey Rourke) creates his own deadly suit and weapons manufacturer Justin Hammer (Sam Rockwell) provides him with the resources to smash Stark's vision of privatised world peace. It may lack the fresh irreverence and excitement of the first adventure, but there are noteworthy set pieces. Vanko makes a dramatic appearance at the Monaco Grand Prix and the finale sees a spectacular face-off at Stark Expo, where a chromium-suited James Rhodes (Don Cheadle taking over from Terrence Howard) joins in the deluxe CGI mayhem.

Clint Eastwood struts his stern stuff in this typically hard-nosed war epic, playing a grizzled gunnery sergeant training a batch of rookie soldiers. He's the main reason to watch this by-the-numbers drama, which recycles many vintage clichés of the genre, from the misfit recruit gaining dignity and the old, die-hard veteran versus the modern major, to the virgin platoon's first bitter taste of battle on the beaches of Grenada. It's a movie the US Department of Defense openly condemned - "drill sergeants are not permitted by regulations to swear at recruits".

Director Robert Longo's turgid sci-fi thriller, based on William Gibson's cyberpunk short story, is cyber junk. Keanu Reeves sleepwalks through the title role as a 21st-century hi-tech messenger who carries top-secret information thanks to a computer chip in his brain allied to bio-enhanced memory cells. Unfortunately, his latest employers have overloaded his cranial capacity to such an extent that his head will explode unless he downloads fast. Empty, flashy and incredibly dull, Longo's unpleasant movie fails to generate any suspense and, worse still, is lamely tarted up with incomprehensible surf-cowboy jargon, gratuitous violence and second-rate special effects.

Winner of the Oscar for best special visual effects, this astute blend of science fact and fiction eerily anticipated the kind of lost-in-space crisis that would actually occur during the Apollo 13 mission just one year later. Gene Hackman, Richard Crenna and James Franciscus successfully combine public confidence with private misgivings as the stranded crew, while Gregory Peck heads the Nasa operation with typical reserve. Director John Sturges makes the most of his space hardware but never gets the domestic drama off the ground, with Lee Grant and the other wives being reduced to mere cardboard cut-outs.

Repo Men- (2010)

This futuristic thriller is set in a world where hi-tech artificial organs are all the rage, but come at a deadly price. Fall behind on your repayments and a crack squad of repo men - essentially bailiffs-cum-surgeons - hunt you down and take back the replacement parts on the spot. Two of the best are Remy (Jude Law) and Jake (Forest Whitaker), but when the former is given a new heart, he begins to question the morality of The Union, the sinister corporation that employs him, and goes on the run - with his former partner in hot pursuit. Director Miguel Sapochnik sets the action in an inner-city dystopia that allows him to take some broad swipes at a runaway consumer culture and offer heavy-handed satire on the nature of healthcare and scientific progress. But the chase sequences never have enough momentum, Law is a fairly unconvincing renegade hero and there's too much emphasis on blood-soaked violence at the expense of both plot and character development.

This pure adrenaline-pumping entertainment of the highest order sees action man Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock trapped on a crowded LA bus that crazed extortionist Dennis Hopper has primed to explode if its speed falls below 50mph. Slipping smoothly into top gear from the nail-biting scene-setting opening, director Jan De Bont's "Die Hard on the Buses" moves into the fast lane with a nonstop barrage of brilliantly filmed action, nerve-jangling thrills and death-defying stunts. Completely outrageous, over-the-top and as exciting as can be, this wild ride will make you wish your sofa came equipped with seat belts.
