IF ONLY she’d stuck to her guns, novelist P L Travers could have prevented Julie Andrews winning an Oscar and spared us the sound of Dick Van Dyke’s demented cockney accent. But no, she said yes to film-making legend Walt Disney and gave him the rights to film her series of books about Mary Poppins.

THE end of this second instalment of The Hunger Games is a real cliffhanger. It’s testimony to what’s happened over the previous two hours-plus that the final scene annoys, but only because I really wanted to know what happens next.

THE idea sounds better than the execution. A mob family hides out in France under assumed identities after the father becomes a wanted man for snitching on fellow gangsters. Given that the head of the family is played by Robert De Niro, an actor not unacquainted with mob movies, you hope for more than you get.

THIS contains many of Michael Bay’s signature moves – loud music, loud action, loud shirts (well, it is set in Miami). And frantic flashy editing. It’s relentless and is like being hit over the head with a wet kipper for than two hours.

THIS is the rude, lewd and crude comedy in which Jennifer Aniston sheds her clothes – well, down to bra and pants – as a stripper. Her disrobing services are needed when she poses as the wife of minor drug smuggling neighbour David Clark (Saturday Night Live’s Jason Sedakis) to transport marijuana across the US-Mexican border.

AS WITH most sequels, this second dose of ass-kicking by the vigilante superheroes is bigger and broader with more swearing, more violence and more blood. Subtlety and wit are not the strong points of a movie, directed by Jeff Wadlow, taking over the reins from Matthew Vaughn.

ILL-MATCHED maverick undercover agents, double-cross followed by triple-cross, blazing guns, torture, a damsel in distress, more guns... there’s nothing in 2 Guns that particularly inspires hope of anything other than a run-of-the-mill movie.

This latest from the Pirates Of The Caribbean team of star Johnny Depp, director Gore Verbinski and producer Jerry Bruckheimer arrives on these in the wake of poor reviews and a lower-than-expected US box office take.

IT was bound to happen. In fact you may think “Why has it not happened before now?”, given that the third in Richard Linklater’s Jesse and Celine talkathon trilogy was released as long ago as June 21.
