Ssh, nobody mention how much better Saoirse is!
A Turtle’s Tale, the biography of a dismally boring chelonian who spends fifty years biffing around in the sea and then turns into John Hurt, has been billed as an adventure/thrillride/treat etc “for all the family”. Should you wish to protest this blatant lie, the Trading Standards Institute can be found here; nobody over the age of five will find any joy in Sammy’s aimless paddling, trite relationships and pious eco-preaching.
D’you know what, Sammy? Real turtles – the sort that are 3D even if you’re not wearing glasses – actually don’t have quite as jammy a life as you. We explore some of the dodgier moments in your average non-voiced-by-Dominic-Cooper-and-John-Hurt chelonian’s life to find out what probably won’t pop up in A Turtle’s Tale.
Have you ever felt you were watching an actor play the same character he has played a million times before? Here at Best For Film, we are tired of watching characters phone in the same predictable performances for an easy paycheck.

Clash of the Titans II gets a new title and sets its sights on actors James Franco and Javier Bardem.
Inspired by the best-selling video games series (a sentence that always puts fear into our hearts), Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time is a rollicking escapade which marries gorgeous Moroccan locations with state-of-the-art visual effects. The time-bending storyline of Mike Newell’s big budget adventure incorporates a romantic subplot, presumably to appeal to female audiences who might otherwise give this testosterone-heavy romp a wide berth.
