Yeah, yeah, Mark Wahlberg plays the leader of a highly trained group of military operatives (under their remote handler ‘mother’ played by John Malkovich). He talks fast and is generally kind of an asshole. So far, nothing out of the ordinary, right? Peter Berg directs…well, of course he does. But what’s this, the guy playing the character who shows up saying he’s got vital information for them that will save lives but it’s on a clock and they’ve got to get him out of the country because everyone in Indonesia wants him dead IS…Iko Uwais. For you noobs, that’s the lead in the two Raid movies that if you haven’t seen, we’re done talking because you’re already away from your computer going to find copies of them to watch first. Uwais also choreographed the stunts. Now THAT is something not run of the mill, about this military thriller. Actually, there’s a lot not run of the mill about this film, but not always in a good way. Listen to Zach, Miguel, Chris, JC, and Aaron on the review.

Written by

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
