Cape Town – Comedy, drama, animation and action – there’s something for everyone to see at the cinema this weekend.

A delightful true-life sports film with a cameo from The Rock, two local coming-of-age dramas and an touching animation just in time for the school holidays.

Also showing: Exclusive to Netflix Ben Affleck, Oscar Isaac and Charlie Hunnam do one last job together as a team of former Special Forces operatives.

Here are the 5 new movies to see:

Movie: Fighting With My Family

Our rating: 4/5

Short review: Fighting With My Family is a big-hearted, funny gem of a true-life sports film that easily earns its place among the genre’s very best.

Movie: The Harvesters (Die Stropers)

Our rating: 5/5

Short review: A conservative Afrikaans audience will likely shy away from the film’s truthful and often brutal uncovering of its own shortcomings, whilst a younger more open-minded generation will find solace in exactly that.

Movie: Deep End

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: No amount of pretty drone shots or Greg Kriek's muscles is able to save this awful trainwreck of a film - and that's being nice.

Movie: Triple Frontier

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: Triple Frontier has the good sense to take a macho, Expendables-like set-up and turn it inward. It just doesn't go far enough.
