JOHN WICK (2014)

Led by an in form Keanu Reeves, John Wick is an unapologetic action romp that successfully melds old school grit and new school sensibilities.

***1/2
 
FURY (2014)
Fury poster

Fury is the closest thing to a horror war movie yet, with director David Ayer presenting a dark, claustrophobic and foreboding depiction of how the “greatest generation” not only fought against the evil of Nazism, but also the monster within themselves.

****
THIS IS WHERE I LEAVE YOU (2014)
This Is Where I Leave You poster

A great ensemble cast is wasted in This is Where I Leave You, a trite and incredibly silly comedic drama about a dysfunctional secular family caught in a mournful rut.

**
 
WILD (2014)
Wild poster

Reese Witherspoon undertakes a journey of mind, body and spirit in Wild, an impeccably crafted and performed tale of atonement and rebirth.

****
KILL THE MESSENGER (2014)
Kill the Messenger poster

With a powerful Jeremy Renner leading the way and a fascinating true story as its guide, Kill the Messenger will move many with its true life account of a conspiracy exposed and the man who was destroyed for doing so.

***1/2
 
A WALK AMONG THE TOMBSTONES (2014)
A Walk Among the Tombstones poster

Although bogged down by too many plot points, A Walk Among the Tombstones works as a gritty crime thriller that features a refreshingly compelling Liam Neeson as a reluctant man of violence ensconced in a violent world.

***
THE JUDGE (2014)
The Judge poster

Exceptional performances from Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall save The Judge from its dishevelled tone, with director David Dobkins first foray into drama an uneven yet wholly engaging affair.

***1/2
 
ANNABELLE (2014)
Annabelle poster

More stupefying than scary, Annabelle takes whatever promise there was of a Conjuring franchise and flushes it down the bowels of Hell with its uninspired direction and wooden performances.
