Neither the story nor characters have any moral ambiguity or psychological shadings.

Despite only being 3 months into 2018, I'm not afraid to call Operation Red Sea one of the best action films of the year.

March 11, 2018 | Full Review…

For all its unabashed jingoism (including a South China Sea warning towards the end), the hellish displays of combat it includes hardly make for an advertisement to enlist.

March 1, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

Basically every great, good and decent war movie rolled into one amazing must-see spectacle.

February 23, 2018 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

Hostages, helicopters, drones, boats, x-ray smartphones, snipers, night-vision goggles and bombs, stitched together with adrenalized pacing and superior stunts.

The unflinching rawness of the action has considerable impact while undercutting the dominant jingoistic tone.
