ACTION/SCI-FI/ YOUNG ADULT
PLOT: Divergent series part three.
Tris (Shailene Woodley) and Four (Theo James) escape outside Chicago seeking a better world but it is just as corrupt and horrible as their home and soon they have to save it. It wasn’t as good as Insurgent but it did have its moments. I believe there will be a part two as with all books Hollywood breaks the last book into two parts. If you can wait until video please wait.
13 HOURS: THE SPECIAL SOLDIERS OF BENGHAZI
PLOT: The true story of six military men who defend the U.S. embassy.
The film is an inside account of the brave operatives who needed help and protected the best they could the compound they were in. The fight scenes are intense and Michael Bay, who is known for popcorn movies shows he can make a serious action movie. The question is why these men never received any military assistance when they asked for it? Who is responsible? Michael Bay did not want to make it political but unfortunately it is for it sadly shows once again can we trust our elected officials. The film was in theaters in a hot minute then suspiciously gone. The video release arrives June 7.
THE JUNGLE BOOK
PLOT: An updated version of The Jungle Book by Rudyard Kipling.
Disney in 1967 made the animated version of the same name and now they used CGI. The story is about a boy named Mowgli (Neal Sethi) raised by wolves and the evil Shere Khan voiced by Idris Elba wants him dead because he is human and what his father did to him. The film is visually amazing and the voice actors are outstanding which include Bill Murray, Ben Kingsley, Lupital Nyongo and Christopher Walken but Elba’s Khan is menacingly good!! Highly recommended.
