Here are the 5 best movies on TV this evening

A bizarrely action-packed night, if we do say so ourselves.

We're back to it, folks.

Monday again.

Where did that weekend go, eh?

And what to do this evening? Well, you could head to the cinema and check out the exceptional Knives Out, or the not-bad-at-all Charlie's Angels (we review them both in full right here).

OR... you can sit in and watch one of these instead:


Patriot's Day - Film4 - 9pm

Mark Wahlberg plays a cop in the middle of the real-life story behind the Boston Marathon bombing and the city-wide search to find the perpetrators. An extremely undervalued, incredibly tense thriller.

Assassins - ITV4 - 9pm

Sly Stallone is the best assassin in the whole world, but he decides he wants to retire. However, his former handlers decide that retirement isn't on the cards and send the world's second best assassin (Antonio Banderas) to retire him in a much more violent way.

The Matrix - Sky One - 9pm

Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss star in this iconic science fiction action thriller about robots using humans as a power source and the virtual reality world that humanity has been placed into. But mostly, it is about bullet time and slo-mo and kicks to the face.

Commando - E4 - 9pm

Arnie is a soldier who is living happily with his daughter in the woods, until one day they kidnap her and force him to kill a politician. Of course, being Arnie, he instead makes his way to the bad guys, killing hundreds of people along the way. Ends with one of the most homoerotic fist fights in cinema history.

The Serpent And The Rainbow - Horror Channel - 11pm

Wes Craven (director of Scream and A Nightmare On Elm Street) tells this horror story of a man (Bill Pullman) who travels to Haiti to investigate the story of a voodoo doctor who is turning people into living zombies.
