Fearless (15) This biopic about 19th century martial arts supremo Huo Yuan-Jia is Jet Li s final foray into the wushu genre. Since turning to Hollywood, Li has not lived up to the highs of his early output. This is as close as he has got. Not bad. 3/5 * U

Fearless (15) This biopic about 19th century martial arts supremo Huo Yuan-Jia is Jet Li's final foray into the wushu genre. Since turning to Hollywood, Li has not lived up to the highs of his early output. This is as close as he has got. Not bad. 3/5

* Ultraviolet (15) Futuristic sci-fi staring Milla Jovovich as a vampire-like creature created by bioglogical warfare research gone wrong. Jovovich is in good shape in a range of natty costumes but that's about all it has going for it. 1/5

* Aquamarine (PG) Aimed firmly at pre-teen girls, this is a gentle fantasy about two young girls who help a teenage mermaid learn to fall in love. Low budget but harmless enough. 3/5

* Half Light (15) A successful novelist moves to a small village after her son's death only to be haunted by ghosts. Well, what can you say about this little Demi Moore nugget? Not very good. 1/5

* The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (12A) Yep, there's another one in the fast car franchise. The plot is secondary to the speed freak action, and if that's your thing, you'll be more than happy. 3/5

* Hard Candy (18) An online chatroom is the starting point for the events of this clever thriller, which sees a 32-year-old man face surprising consequences when he takes a 14-year-old girl home. 4/5

* Thank you for Smoking (15) A not entirely straightforward but none the less enjoyable satire about a spin doctor employed by a major cigarette company. Aaron Eckhart, Cameron Bright, Katie Holmes and William H Macy star. 3/5

* Imagine Me and You (12A) Piper Perabo stars as a bride who has a change of heart on her wedding day, realising not only that she doesn't love the groom, but that she is in love with another woman. 2/5

* The Omen (15) Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles star as the parents mistakenly raising the son of the devil in this horror remake. Director John Moore has done nothing much with his source material to make it better or different from the original. 3/5

* RV: Runaway Vacation (PG) Robin Williams plays Bob Munro in this predictable story of a father trying to solve his family's problems with a road trip in an RV. The dysfunctional family are united against a string of misfortunes. 2/5

* Poseidon (12A) In this remake of the 1970s The Poseidon Adventure, a cast of clichéd characters are left to save themselves when their cruiser is hit by a freak wave. As you can expect from a disaster movie the dialogue is terrible, but the movie moves along at rip-roaring pace. 4/5

* United 93 (15) A harrowing and tense recreation of the actions of those onboard, and those on the ground trying to help, the plane which hijackers intended to fly into the White House on September 11. Thought-provoking stuff. 4/5

* The Da Vinci Code (12A) Starring Tom Hanks and Audrey Tautou, this is an eagerly anticipated film from the bestselling novel. This proves to be an action-packed adventure with biblical flashbacks following Prof Robert Langdon as he struggles to unravel an ancient code to solve the greatest mystery of all. 4/5

* The Wild (U) It's another animal-ation and this time the star is Samson the lion who's top cat at his home, the New York City Zoo. 3/5

* Curious George (U) This comedy animation stars Will Ferrell as the Man in the Yellow Hat, a gentleman who looks after his pet monkey. 2/5

* X-Men: The Last Stand (12A) The X-Men are divided when a cure is found to treat mutations. This supposedly final instalment sees the return of the key mutant heroes, Hugh Jackman as Wolverine, Ian McKellen as Magneto and Halle Berry as Storm. 4/5

* Mission Impossible III (12A) Tom Cruise reprises his role of ice cool super spy Ethan Hunt under the guiding hand of director Lost creator JJ Abrams. Abrams tries to add in a bit of depth to Hunt's character and is partially successful, but is sure not to leave out a barrage of high-octane stunts and fancy gadgetry. 3/5
