The all-action, don't-mess dream team of Jason Statham and Vinnie Jones knuckle down for this remake of the Burt Reynolds jailhouse sports smash The Longest Yard. Vinnie is well cast as a convicted footy star who must assemble a team of inmates to take on guv'nor David Hemmings' talentless prison officers XI. Don't expect many fair play awards from a comedy that keeps it simple but plays shin-splinteringly hard.

The Indian-set Saga saga continues with the geriatric ex-pats firmly settled in Jaipur and currying favour with the locals, particularly garrulous hotelier Sonny (Dev Patel) and his fiancée. There's unspoken attraction between Douglas (Bill Nighy) and Evelyn (Judi Dench), Cockney ex-char Muriel (Maggie Smith) is helping Sonny with his expansionist plans and the arrival of eligible silver fox Richard Gere sets hearts aflutter. Sweet-natured romantic sequel for the older generation.

Halle Berry won the Best Actress Oscar as a widow who falls for Death Row prison guard Hank (Billy Bob Thornton) who was on duty for her husband's execution. The delicate situation is made even more volatile by Hank's irredeemably racist father (Peter Boyle), whose prejudice is shared by Hank's son (Heath Ledger). Sexual and racial tensions run at a feverish high in this unflinchingly acted drama, splendidly handled by future Bond director Marc Forster.

Heath Ledger gives a career-best performance as a cowboy who finds his true love while herding sheep in the Wyoming mountains. The darned thing is that his soul-mate is a guy (Jake Gyllenhaal). An Oscar-winning adaptation by Diana Ossana and Larry McMurtry (writer of The Last Picture Show and Terms Of Endearment) of a story by Pulitzer Prize winner Annie Proulx (The Shipping News), this is a sweeping, slow-burning romance with a difference. Yup, a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do... so long as no one else finds out about it.
