Cast: Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Carlo Kitzlinger, Aylin Tezel, Omid Memar, Paul Wollin, Murathan Muslu

Not a bad high-concept thriller but, as is often the case with movies hampered by undercooked storylines, something better could have resulted from the same basic plot points.

Director: Michael Apted
Cast:

Provokes self-reflection in a way that few other movies can and is destined to be remembered long after those who have made it and appeared in it are no longer around.

MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Disturbing Images)
Genre: War
Director: Sam Mendes
Cast: George MacKay, Dean-Charles Chapman

A war movie of uncommon vision - by turns startling, gut-wrenching, exhausting, and satisfying.

Unappealing and stale, a barely-watchable combination of clichés and irrelevant tangents.

The movie feels like what it is – a moderately low-budget action/adventure outing designed primarily for the Asian market.

MPAA Rating: "R" (War Violence, Profanity)
Genre: War/Thriller
Director: Nicolai Fuglsig
Cast: Chris Hemsworth, Michael Shannon, Michael Pena, Trevante Rhodes, Navid Negahban, William Fichtner

For those who enjoy war films, especially those with an “old fashioned” bent, "12 Strong" offers two solid hours.

MPAA Rating: "PG-13" (Disturbing Images, Drugs, Brief Nudity)
Genre: Adventure/Drama
Director: Scott Waugh
Cast: Josh Hartnett, Mira Sorvino, Sarah Dumont, Jason Cottle

The adventure/survival aspectsare presented with workmanlike efficiency but the secondary story elements are at times cringe-worthy.

Run Time: 1:34
U.S. Release Date: 2017-08-18
MPAA Rating: "R" (Violence, Profanity)
Genre: Thriller
Director: Toa Fraser
Cast: Mark Strong, Jamie Bell, Abbie Cornish, Ben Turner, Toby Leach, Martin Shaw, Tim Pigott-Smith

Works not only as a portal into what happened 37 years ago but as an understanding of the difficulties of handling hostage situations.

Take away the anti-climactic final act and this is an effective white-knuckle psychological thriller.

There seems to be little reason to see "The 5th Wave" unless you’re a fan of unfinished stories that likely will never be completed.
