Fast & Furious 7 and the rest of the week’s movie releases


What should you be watching at the cinema this week?



Fast & Furious 7

Starring: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jason Statham

Who would have thought this was a franchise that would stretch to seven movies (and beyond)? Anyone who’s seen number three (Tokyo Drift) will know what we’re talking about. But each instalment just keeps getting bigger and bigger and this is no different. Of course, it was overshadowed by the death of Walker (the situation is dealt with), but it’s good to see Statham as a baddie, out for vengeance. One of the reasons for the saga’s success? You know what you’re going to get and it’s unlikely any fans will go home disappointed on that score.

Kidnapping Freddy Heineken


Starring: Anthony Hopkins, Jim Sturgess, Sam Worthington

A fascinating, but little-known true story, this is about a famous kidnapping of, yes, a member of the beer family (Hopkins) which resulted in the largest ransom ever paid. Of course, when there’s that much money involved, things never go according to plan. Part heist drama part psychological thriller, the great cast are magnetic.

The Water Diviner


Starring: Russell Crowe, Olga Kurylenko, Jai Courtney

Russ turns director in this drama about an Aussie man who goes looking for his MIA sons after 1916’s Battle of Gallipoli. Anyone who’s seen Peter Weir’s movie about the campaign knows there’s rich material to be mined and it’s good to see Crowe – directing himself – return to his Antipodean roots.
