Google Film launched in the UK this morning.

The new service for movie buffs offers fast access to search-and-find film show times in their local area, access to film information such as critics' reviews, and search for films by plot, genre, and more.

Google has also added a new Google SMS feature that lets UK users receive film showtimes and cinema listings on their mobile phone or handheld device via text messaging.
Users can search for a list of films and showtimes near a UK location; search for specific movies playing locally; search for movies by plot, actors, directors or even key moments of a movie; search by genre, description or viewer opinions.

Google Film also finds reviews from the Web and calculates an aggregated rating score from 0 to 5 stars. Users can search within these reviews and sort films by rating, relevance or date. Google also generates a list of terms that are frequently mentioned in the critics' reviews.
