In Cinemas This Week

Law Abiding Citizen - Gerrard Butler as an "everyday guy" is a bit of a stretch, but this thriller about a family man whose family is massacred by criminals could well be an action-packed revenge fest. Another slightly incredulous piece of casting here though: Jamie Foxx, as the baddie who set him up in the first place. Directed by F Gary Gray (The Italian Job).

Remember Me - Romantic drama starring heart-throbs Robert Pattinson and Emilie de Raven. She witnesses her mother's murder. He witnesses his brother's suicide. Sound like fun?

The Admiral - One of the most expensive Russian films ever made. The story of one of the White Army's most controversial commanders, Alexander Kolchak (Konstantin Khabensky), who leads military forces in battle against the Bolshieviks. Add a romantic plot thread, massive war set-pieces, a huge orchestral score and beautiful costumes, and you have the makings of a great historical epic from a country renowned for its great historical epics.

This Way of Life - Local documentary about a horse whisperer on our very own East Coast. Follows Peter Karena and his family over four years as he trys to eke out an existence in this high niche profession. Directed and shot by highly respected kiwi cinematographer Tom Burstyn, this apparently looks "visually ravishing".
