Inside this conventionally structured biopic resides an extraordinary story of an extraordinary man.

A fast paced western with as many quips as it has action set pieces (and it has a lot) cannot disguise the fact that this is a rather pointless exercise, trading as it does on the notorious legend of the James/Younger gang for no discernible reason. Having said which, despite that verbal 'arse whoopin' American Outlaws is pretty good fun. find out more...
AMISTAD (1998)

Certification15 Our Rating

A group of abducted Africans break free from their shackles aboard a Spanish slave ship, the Amistad, so setting the scene for a lengthy courtroom drama played out against a backdrop of 19th Century slavery.

Superb sets and an authentic atmosphere, and it's pretty gruesome at times too. Typically Spielberg-esque epic. find out more...

Immaculate costumes, a brilliant script and two star-crossed lovers in a battle of wits in this tale of the unconsummated romance between Thailand's reformist King Mongkut (Rama 4) and Anna Leonowens, his son's English tutor. All this set a backdrop of court intrigue against the still running Rama dynasty. Very good. find out more...
