STAR TREK: INTO DARK­NESS ( M)

Stars: Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto Di­rec­tor: JJ Abrams Avail­able: Now on DVD and Blu- ray Abrams proves his Star Trek rein­vig­o­ra­tion has some real legs with an­other en­joy­able, stylish, ac­tion- packed fran­chise in­stal­ment, with the En­ter­prise crew this time try­ing to stop a ter­ror­ist in Starfleet’s ranks.

DARK SKIES ( M)

Stars: Keri Rus­sell, Josh Hamil­ton Di­rec­tor: Scott Ste­wart Avail­able: Now on DVD and Blu- ray It’s all in the build- up with this solidly freaky but un­o­rig­i­nal para­nor­mal thriller about a typ­i­cal sub­ur­ban fam­ily who be­come the tar­get of bizarre go­ings- on. The ideas are good but the struc­ture is pretty fa­mil­iar.

AD­VEN­TURES IN ZAM­BEZIA ( G)

Stars: Abi­gail Bres­lin, Leonard Ni­moy Di­rec­tor: Wayne Thornley Avail­able: Now on DVD and Blu- ray A free- spir­ited fal­con with an over­pro­tec­tive fa­ther longs for ad­ven­ture out­side his home­land in this an­i­mated tale which might give the kids a thrill with its well- mean­ing an­tics but bore most oth­ers.

DEAD MAN DOWN ( MA)

Stars: Colin Far­rell, Noomi Ra­pace Di­rec­tor: Niels Ar­den Oplev Avail­able: Now on DVD and Blu- ray It takes a while for the plot to re­veal it­self and it ends up un­rav­el­ling into lit­tle more than gun­play, but there are mo­ments in this crime thriller – about a hench­man black­mailed into killing by a dis­fig­ured woman – that work well.
