18 classification Sin City: A Dame To Kill For


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Action / Thriller / Crime
Director: Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller
Running time: 102 mins

So many sequels are greenlit, filmed and released so fast these days it seems to be something of a modern miracle that this new collection of hyper-violent crime stories is being released a whopping nine whole years after the first film wowed audiences with its artful use of colour and grim misogyny. Stripper Nancy Callahan (Jessica Alba) is devastated by the suicide of father figure John Hartigan and embarks upon a campaign of revenge against the powerful men she believes to be responsible. Scarred slab of meat Marv (Mickey Rourke) also wants to clean up with the town of his own brand of bone-crunching justice, while gambler Johnny (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is just trying to live through the night. Dwight (previously played by Clive Owen but now embodied by Josh Brolin) tangles with tricksy femme fatale Ava Lord (Eva Green).

15 classification As Above, So Below


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Horror
Director: John Erick Dowdle
Running time: 93 mins

A found footage horror set in the miles of tunnels below Paris. The director is no stranger to claustrophobia, having directed Quarantine (set in an apartment building) and Devil (set in a lift). Scarlett (Perdita Weeks) is a beautiful, ambitious archaeologist who wants to carry on her late father's work and discover the Philosopher's Stone. She recruits her friend George (Ben Feldman) and a filmmaker named Benji (Edwin Hodge) for her expedition and they find clues that lead them to the Paris catacombs. With the help of some native cataphiles (Francois Civil, Marion Lambert, Ali Marhyar) they descend further and further into the depths. But their helmet-mounted cameras soon capture more than old bones and crumbling walls.
