Movie Reviews: The Kid Who Would Be King, Stan & Ollie, Serenity


Family-friendly Arthurian legend and the story of a legendary comedy duo lead the multiplex offerings during this opening Sundance Film Festival weekend.

The Kid Who Would Be King  (pictured) weds a Brexit-era call for unity with a reminder that every hero isn't a Chosen One.

Andrew Wright finds that the murky noir of Serenity includes plenty of malarkey.

In this week's feature review, Stan & Ollie manages to dodge some biopic cliches in its tale of late-period Laurel & Hardy, but remains content to be pleasantly amusing.
