Forget Deep Blue Sea 2 - if you'd even heard about it - this third entry is a much more watchable effort even if it's still quintessentially DTV, and is available in a cheap digital triple-pack with the fun 20-year-old original.
Gifted a last minute PVOD reprieve, this year's answer to The Florida Project now gets a full theatrical window, an impressive slice of honest drama, tackling weighty issues with a breezy attitude that belies its depth of understanding.
After an electric first season, which successfully translated the source novel and excellent preceding 70s Redford thriller into a modern series, the second season struggles to find its footing for an equally riveting tale.
As the second season drops, we look back at the first year on this excellent spy series, which is more Homeland than 24, successfully reimagining the classic Redford thriller whilst retaining the pervasively tense paranoia.
A long way away from its Elmore Leonard inspirations, and from Travolta's lovable-muscle-turned-producer, the Chris O'Dowd-led Get Shorty is unbelievably still going strong on its third convoluted season.

Arnie and Jackie Chan reteam for this low budget messy fantasy romp that means well, and wouldn't have been out of place in Jackie's earlier catalogue, but could do with a lot less out-of-sync ADR and a lot more refinement for a 2020 audience.
The world's first self-proclaimed multicultural megastar tanks another leading vehicle, cementing the notion that only his ensemble Fast and Furious films work.
