A Week In Film #486: Grundig

Despicable Me 2
A sequel which has grown on me – nice to get some more Gru, even though the pairing him up with Lucy Wilde of the Anti-Villain League thing did undermine some of the message of the previous one.

The Martian
One of the few Ridley Scott movies of recent years not ruined by it being a Ridley Scott movie. A pleasantly positive vibe throughout.

File alongside Welcome To The Punch, Cleanskin and Closed Circuit as another ‘almost’ British thriller from recent years. Here Noomi Rapace is an undercover CIA officer in London on the trail of a terrorist cell. Plenty of strong name talent (Orlando Bloom, Toni Collette, Michael Douglas, John Malkovich), and helmed by the experienced Michael Apted, but definitely no cigar.

Potty-mouthed pansexual masked mercenary shenanigans from Marvel.
