Disney’s Tarzan & Jane TVNZ 2, 7am
Voice Jim Cummings. Animated action about the jungle hero and his girlfriend. Not reviewed.
Love Strikes Twice Three, 11.50am Starring Katrina Begin. A woman about to be married loses her memory and her overbearing mother uses this chance to eradicate flaws in her daughter’s character. Not reviewed.
The Unauthorised Melrose Place Story TVNZ 2, 12.05pm
Starring Ciara Hanna. Made-for-TV movie about the goings-on behind the scenes of the hit TV show. Not reviewed.
NYC: Tornado Terror Three, 1.50pm Starring Nicole de Boer. A superstorm threatens New York’s existence. Not reviewed.
Epic Three, 3.50pm Voices Amanda Seyfried, Colin Farrell. A star-studded voice cast and beautiful animation boost what is otherwise a fairly routine story of good versus evil set in a forest populated by various miniature creatures. ★★★
Quantum Of Solace Three, 7pm Starring Daniel Craig. Craig’s second outing as quintessential secret agent James Bond continues as an action spectacle in much the same vein as franchise reboot Casino Royale. ★★★
Iron Man 2 TVNZ 2, 8.30pm
Starring Robert Downey Jr, Mickey Rourke. It was always fairly unlikely that this sequel
was ever going to match the freshness and appeal of its predecessor – but it does come close, thanks to solid performances from a dependable cast and some expectedly impressive special effects. ★★★★
Van Helsing Three, 9.05pm Starring Hugh Jackman, Kate Beckinsale. Big-budget effects nowhere near offset the bland script and characterisations in this actioner about a 19th-century Dracula hunter. ★★
