Movie: The Infiltrator

Our rating: Based on an autobiography, The Infiltrator is so bogged down by facts that it forgot to entertain the audience.

Movie: Ben-Hur

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: The remake of Ben-Hur isn't as bad as the critics are saying, the protagonists have decent character arcs, and the script is not altogether unpalatable.

Movie: Viral

Our rating: Although it might feel like another zombie movie, Viral has got a little more brains and heart than your average mindless horror romp.

Short review: 3/5
