Top 10 tur­keys

The Galloway News - - REVIEW OF THE YEAR -

10

The Meg (12) Had its fun mo­ments, but dodgy di­a­logue and a plod­ding pace saw it end up all at sea.

9

Bad Sa­mar­i­tan (15) A thriller that started off well be­fore fall­ing into generic tropes and silly shifts in char­ac­ter.

8

Mandy (18) A sec­ond slot for Nicolas Cage. Crit­ics in­ex­pli­ca­bly adored this pre­ten­tious, frus­trat­ing odd­ity.

7

Venom (15) Tom Hardy tried his best but couldn’t save a tonal mess.The worst comic-book flick of 2018.

6

The Hur­ri­cane Heist (12) This full-of-wind ac­tioner de­fied re­al­ism while some­how fall­ing short of pulse-rac­ing ac­tion.

5

Mile 22 (18) An in­trigu­ing set-up got bogged down with plot strands that went nowhere and un­like­able leads.

4

Mom and Dad (15) Even by Nicolas Cage’s manic stan­dards, he was over-the-top in this ter­ri­bly scripted mess.

3

The Nun (15) A ma­jor let­down as it failed to build on a ter­ri­fy­ing pres­ence set up in the Con­jur­ing se­ries.

2

Death Wish (15) BruceWil­lis slept-walked his way through this ill-ad­vised, cliched re­make.

1

Winch­ester (15) One thing a hor­ror movie should never be is dull, but not even He­len Mir­ren could liven this up.
