This Week's New Film Releases: Friday 28 August 2015

15 classification Hitman: Agent 47


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Action / Drama / Thriller
Director: Aleksander Bach
Running time: 96 mins

Writer Skip Woods (Hitman, X-Men Origins: Wolverine, A Good Day To Die Hard) takes another stab at launching the Hitman film franchise with Hitman: Agent 47. Rupert Friend, best known for his role as Peter Quinn in Homeland, plays the eponymous Agent 47, a genetically engineered assassin who, as the result of decades of research and cloning, is endowed with supreme speed, strength, stamina and intelligence. Agent 47 is on the trail of Katia Van Dees (Hannah Ware), the daughter of the scientist who started the Agent project, in the hopes of tracking down the mastermind behind attempts to create an army of killers whose powers surpass even his own. Narratively baffling, but not without visual flair, Hitman: Agent 47 marks another lacklustre attempt to bring this successful video game series to the screen.

15 classification Straight Outta Compton


Ents24 Rating


Genre: Biopic / Drama
Director: F Gary Gray
Running time: 147 mins

Straight Outta Compton is a biopic that tells the story of West Coast rap group NWA's rise to cultural prominence in the late 80s. Tired of working dead end jobs and being victimised by the police, Eric 'Eazy-E' Johnson (Jason Mitchell), Andre 'Dr Dre' Young (Corey Hawkins) and O'Shea 'Ice Cube' Jackson (played by Ice Cube's son, O'Shea Jackson Jr.) join forces with MC Ren (Aldis Hodge) and DJ Yella (Neil Brown Jr.) to form NWA. Signed to a major label with the help of manager Jerry Heller (Paul Giamatti), the group release the seminal album Straight Outta Compton and shock the world with incendiary lyrics and a glimpse into the lives of young black men from one of the most dangerous places in America. Erring on the side of hagiography and, at almost two and a half hours, a tad long, Straight Outta Compton nonetheless serves as an entertaining reminder of more contentious times in popular music.
