Kick-start the school holidays with these 5 films in cinemas


Cape Town – Gru and the Minions are back on the big screen right on time for the school holidays.

In the third instalment of the Despicable Me franchise Gru who is now a member of the Anti-Villain League (AVL) has to take down supervillain Balthazar Bratt.

For the teens there's a Hollywood/Bollywood infused dance film and a high school movie in which the outcasts take on the popular kids. 

If you don’t fall into those age groups there's also the long awaited Tupac biopic and an adult drama set in France – there's something for everyone to see this weekend. 

Here are 5 new films at the local box office:


Movie: All Eyez on Me

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: All Eyez on Me is nothing more than a flat retelling of the life of one of hip hop's greatest stars.

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: As you’d expect, Despicable Me 3 is cute, funny and even has an adult joke or two but it’s safe to say the film franchise has run its course.

Movie: The Outcasts

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: At first glance The Outcasts look like a reject Disney channel movie, but I found myself pleasantly entertained by a high school film that at least attempts to avoid cliché pitfalls.
