Follows a group of UAC Marines as they respond to a distress call from a top secret scientific base on Phobos, a Martian moon, only to discover it's been overrun by demons who threaten to create Hell on Earth.
Jodi, the tallest girl in her high school, has always felt uncomfortable in her own skin. But after years of slouching, being made fun of, and avoiding attention at all costs, Jodi finally decides to find the confidence to stand tall.
As in this film, in the 2007 film Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007), from the beginning the characters played by Imelda Staunton ("Dolores Umbridge") and Dame Maggie Smith ("Professor McGonagall") were also at odds with each other. One of the things "Umbridge" liked to do was throw around (and hold over others) the names of the more powerful people she had connections with in order to get things done her way. See more »

I adore the TV series, and this film was more of the same, which I loved. It is full of the same beautiful production quality, wit and humour.
I can hear the criticisms already 'it was too sentimental', 'there wasn't enough complication' but my answer to that is that many of these characters had intense story arcs in the show, so it's nice to revisit them now and see them living, or finally getting, their happy endings without too much drama.
Everyone in the cinema, myself included, laughed the whole way through this film, as is to be expected from Downton Abbey. And then there were other moments that were quite poignant to offset the humour, which blended perfectly.
Yes, it's a movie for fans of the show, but why shouldn't it be? After years supporting this show and following these characters, why shouldn't we be rewarded?
I had high expectations for this film, and was very satisfied with it, and that doesn't happen often. Well done to Julian Fellowes for staying true to his characters and delivering a film that is a delight to watch!
