Review in a Nutshell: Critically savaged when it was originally released, we maintain that Daredevil – especially The Director’s Cut – is not as bad as you remember it being, although that may be considered damning with faint praise.

Some of it works, some of it doesn’t, but Bullet is worth examining if only to see how drastically modern film sensibilities have changed.

Review in a Nutshell: A technically adept film with outstanding visual composition and moments of genuine humor, Scott Pilgrim vs the World is nonetheless dragged under by an onslaught of unsympathetic characters. It is the triumph of style over substance.
