      A Civil Action

      Crusading lawyer John Travolta takes on a major case against two manufacturing companies accused of polluting a small town's water supply with cancer-inducing chemicals - but finds himself up against powerful businessmen intent on sweeping the whole incident under the carpet. Engrossing fact-based drama, neatly underplayed by the cast, which also includes Robert Duvall, Tony Shalhoub, Stephen Fry and William H Macy

      Presumed Innocent

      A high-flying lawyer (Harrison Ford, giving a powerful performance) is drawn into an affair with a seductive colleague, who has big plans for the legal eagle. However, when she's found dead, he falls under suspicion of sexually assaulting and murdering her - and as a wealth of evidence piles up, he struggles to clear his name. Formidable mystery thriller, co-starring Greta Scacchi, Raul Julia, Brian Dennehy and Bonnie Bedelia

      Full Metal Jacket

      Stanley Kubrick's drama follows a platoon of raw Marine recruits from their gruelling basic training to their first clash with enemy forces during a decisive battle in 1968. One of the best in the spate of 'Nam movies from the late 1980s, boasting stunning photography, great performances and harrowing scenes in which no punches are pulled. Matthew Modine, Adam Baldwin, Dorian Harewood, Kevyn Major Howard, Arliss Howard, Vincent D'Onofrio star, but the film is dominated by R Lee Ermey's unforgettable performance as their tough drill instructor. Nominated for 'Best Screenplay based on Material from Another Medium' at the 1988 Oscars.

      Lethal Weapon 2

      Hyperactive cop Martin Riggs (Mel Gibson) rejoins staid partner Roger Murtaugh (Danny Glover) in an explosive sequel to their first mega-destructive action thriller. This time they set their sights on a gang of sinister and hopelessly stereotypical South African villains who are plotting to traffick drugs into the US via their embassy. Joe Pesci makes his first appearance in the franchise and Joss Ackland leads the bad guys, while Patsy Kensit is on hand as the love interest

      Mission Impossible

      The cult 1960s spy series is reinvented in his blockbusting action thriller. Tom Cruise heads up the new Impossible Missions team, whose latest assignment is to unmask a traitor in the organisation. However, the mission ends in disaster with the rest of the team wiped out. With Cruise the only survivor, he is accused of being the mole, forcing him to go on the run to clear his name. Meanwhile, the real villain intends to sell information about the world's undercover operatives to the highest bidder. Brian De Palma festoons his film with explosions, plot twists and nerve-jangling moments galore. Jon Voight, Emmanuelle Béart, Jean Reno, Vanessa Redgrave and Ving Rhames make up the impressive cast.

      Jack the Giant Slayer

      A farm boy accidentally rebuilds the link between the human world and a kingdom of man-eating giants in the sky, resulting in a princess being trapped in the monsters' realm. He joins a band of the king's knights on a rescue mission, but one of the group intends to betray them in a bid to seize the throne. Fantasy adventure, starring Nicholas Hoult and Ewan McGregor

      Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

      Jim Carrey reprises his role as the loudly dressed pet detective, who has gone into self-imposed exile in the Himalayas after failing to save a raccoon. Luckily he is tempted to return to his true calling by a British explorer, who persuades him to travel to Africa and find a missing sacred bat - the one species of animal the eccentric investigator hates. Slapstick comedy sequel, which falls a long way short of the original film. Simon Callow, Ian McNeice and Maynard Eziashi take a back seat to Carrey's frantic mugging

      Dawn of the Dead

      A mysterious plague leaves civilisation overrun by flesh-eating zombies, forcing desperate survivors to retreat to a shopping mall. With so many horror films enduring dreadful remakes these days, it's refreshing to see George A Romero's classic receiving a stylish reinvention that stands comparison with the original. Ving Rhames, Sarah Polley and Jake Weber are among the excellent cast fighting off the athletic undead, while Zack Snyder's direction gives proceedings a cool, contemporary sheen. Fans of the original should watch out for cameos from Tom Savini, Scott Reiniger and Ken Foree

      Lethal Weapon

      Mel Gibson stars in the first of the flashy Lethal Weapon films, as a mentally unstable Vietnam veteran-turned-cop who teams up with steady family man Danny Glover to investigate a suicide. Their undercover work soon finds them up against a ruthless drugs ring - leading to a particularly violent and bloody encounter. A tougher, grittier affair than the more comedic sequels. Gary Busey, Mitchell Ryan and Tom Atkins co-star.
