Five movies to watch in cinemas this week

Baaghi 3
Director:
Ahmed Khan
Cast: Tiger Shroff, Shraddha Kapoor, Riteish Deshmukh
You’ll get plenty of action (and six-packs) in this flick where one man is up against an entire nation (so not really that different from Baaghi 1 and 2). If you’re a Tiger fan (the guy does have some serious dance moves) and a sucker for a good bromance, we definitely recommend this movie.

Mulan
Director:
Niki Caro
Starring: Liu Yifei, Donnie Yen, Jason Scott Lee, Yoson An, Gong Li, Jet Li
What is more important than actual honour? Watching an animated Disney movie that’s shows us how important honour is. Disney’s Mulan is a fantasy drama and also happens to be the reprise of an animated 1998 movie with the same name. Strong female characters are out to defy and defeat a patriarchal system in the background of ruthless war. Sounds serious, but Mulan promises to be a complete family entertainer. Keep some tissues ready for the emotions that will flow.

Bloodshot
Director:
David S. F. Wilson
Starring: Vin Diesel, Eiza González, Sam Heughan, Toby Kebbell, Guy Pearce
A man out to get sweet revenge? Sign us up for this Vin Diesel action-packed superhero movie. He plays the role of Bloodshot, a super-human biotech killing machine. The conspiracy only gets bigger and sets Diesel on the path of revenge after losing a loved on. There are crazy twists, over-the-top action and some high- octane drama.

A Quiet Place 2
Director:
John Krasinski
Starring: Emily Blunt, Cillian Murphy, Millicent Simmonds, Noah Jupe, Djimon Hounsou



After the success of A Quiet Place, we now have a sequel to the thrilling movie which we’re hoping will be brilliant (especially if Blunt’s performance in the first is anything to go by). It’s a story of silent survival against the complicated odds of an unknown enemy. And we’re looking forward to Peaky Blinders’ star Murphy in this one.

The Way Back
Director:
Gavin O’Connor
Starring: Ben Affleck, Al Madrigal, Michaela Watkins, Janina Gavankar, Glynn Turman
Seasoned actor Ben Affleck is back with another story of loss and redemption. After hitting rock bottom from losing his wife, Jack Cunningham (Affleck) strives to find his way back to his former life by coaching a mixed-race basketball team at his alma mater. We’re watching this.
