THE BROTHERS GRIMSBY Co­me­dian Sacha Baron Co­hen stars in his first lead role since 2012’s The Dic­ta­tor, play­ing Nobby, an un­couth foot­ball hooli­gan bum­ming around his home­town of Grimsby in Eng­land. When Nobby dis­cov­ers the lo­ca­tion of his long-lost brother (Mark Strong), he sets off for Lon­don for the big re­union, only to find that his brother is an as­sas­sin in MI6. The un­likely duo must then team up to save the world. Rated R. 83 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown. (Not re­viewed) RABIN, THE LAST DAY The pres­ence of Yitzhak Rabin, the peace-seek­ing prime min­is­ter of Is­rael as­sas­si­nated in 1995 by a Jewish religious zealot, hangs over this semi- doc­u­men­tary that re­vis­its the at­mos­phere and the cir­cum­stances sur­round­ing his mur­der. Film­maker Amos Gi­tai veers un­com­fort­ably be­tween in­ter­views, ac­tual am­a­teur footage of the killing and the political rally where it took place, and dra­matic recre­ations that fo­cus mainly on the com­mis­sion of in­quiry look­ing at the break­down of se­cu­rity that gave the killer ac­cess to his vic­tim. Th­ese are com­pe­tent and well shot, but un­con­vinc­ing. The film does lit­tle to build dra­matic or emo­tional ten­sion, but it does send a timely re­minder of the ter­ri­ble con­se­quences of religious fa­nati­cism, and the dan­gers of the forces that seek to pro­mote ig­no­rant, fear-based dis­cord in any so­ci­ety.

See re­view, Page 41. 10 CLOVERFIELD LANE This fol­low-up to the 2008 film Cloverfield is not a di­rect se­quel as much as it is a se­quel in spirit. The story doesn’t fo­cus on a mon­ster crash­ing through Man­hat­tan, but some­thing sim­i­larly dis­rup­tive: A woman (Mary El­iz­a­beth Win­stead) wakes up from a car ac­ci­dent in a cel­lar. The strange man with her (John Good­man) in­sists that an apoc­a­lyp­tic event has oc­curred out­side, and that he is keep­ing her safe, but she’s not so sure. Rated PG-13. 105 min­utes. Re­gal Sta­dium 14; Vi­o­let Crown; Dream­Catcher.
