The Raid: Redemption
Gareth Huw Evans’ impressive crossover Indonesian martial arts action hit, with Iko Uwais as a straight arrow cop joining a special unit on a mission to snatch a drug kingpin from a locked down tower block.
The Raid 2: Berendal
Almost operatic sequel, which breaks out from the Die Hard-style confines of the first film and offers something with more depth.
The Lost World: Jurassic Park
More dinosaur nonsense, but still enjoyable. Good to have Pete Postlethwaite on board as a big game hunter, and Jeff Goldblum back as a chaos theory guy.
Convoluted rip off of The Abyss from hack director George Cosmatos, with decent cast (Peter Weller, Ernie Hudson, Richard Crenna, Amanda Pays etc) let down by the rather pedestrian script by the usually reliable David Peoples (Blade Runner) and Jeb Stuart (Die Hard).
