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. ★★
