Cape Town – Steven Spielberg’s Oscar nominated film The Post hits cinemas this weekend.
Starring Tom Hanks and Meryl Streep the political thriller tells the true-life story of the Washington Post journalists and their attempts to publish the Pentagon Papers, classified documents regarding the involvement of the United States government in the Vietnam War in the early 1970s.
Also showing: Taraji P. Henson plays a hitwoman and the final instalment of the Maze Runner trilogy.
Here are the 3 new films releasing in SA:
Movie: The Post
Our rating: 5/5
Short review: If Tom Hanks’ performance as Ben Bradlee is the beating heart of this film’s hard news world, then Meryl Streep’s Kay Graham is a heartstopper.
Movie: Maze Runner: Death Cure
Our rating: 3/5
Short review: Maze Runner: Death Cure is the perfect ending to a trilogy and is packed with thrilling stunts, edge-of-your-seats action scenes and a touch of emotive drama.
Movie: Proud Mary
Our rating: 2/5
Short review: While she tries very hard Taraji P. Henson's incredible acting can't save this cliched, badly written action film from mediocrity.
