NA­CHO LI­BRE

8.30PM, ELEVEN PG. 2006. A monk moon­lights as a Mex­i­can wrestler in this film that’s spo­rad­i­cally amus­ing yet at times rather of­fen­sive. Di­rec­tor Jared Hess re­lies on a one-joke con­cept that doesn’t quite cut it. Stars the turbo-charged Jack Black in the lead and Ana de la Reguera.

THE RECK­ON­ING

8.30PM, ONE M. 2014. Af­ter his part­ner is mur­dered, a de­tec­tive played by Aussie legend An­thony LaPaglia must track down two teenage run­aways who posess video footage that con­tains the iden­tity of the killer. Also stars Luke Hemsworth and Viva Bianca.

ALEX CROSS

8.30PM, 7FLIX M. 2012. US comic Tyler Perry, lit­tle-known here in Aus­tralia, in­her­its the role of crim­i­nal psy­chol­o­gist Alex Cross from the time­less Mor­gan Free­man. Perry makes for a largely un­charis­matic lead­ing man and the grimy, sadis­tic script seems hope­lessly out­dated. A proper dud.

Jack Black.
