Movie Info

Cal (Jai Courtney) is a by-the-book police officer who, along with his close-knit group of childhood friends, makes ends meet as a Marine Corps reservist. When Cal's reckless younger half-brother, Oyster, is arrested after a bar fight and given an unfair prison sentence, Cal -- driven by his loyalty to family and fierce code of honor -- fights for Oyster (Nat Wolff) in this gripping tale of brotherhood and sacrifice.

  • The interesting characters and all of their conflicts are all right there onscreen -- the cast is excellent -- but the 'prison break' is such a far-fetched idea it's difficult to invest in it.

  • Both halves are handled well by director Henry Alex Rubin, who also co-wrote the film with U.S. Army vet Sean Mullin. But whenever the film shifts its focus to one side of its story, the other suffers.

    October 4, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Though professionally smooth in execution, "Semper Fi" has the frustrating sum impact of a movie at fundamental conflict with itself.

  • Courtney and Wolff are acting their asses off in this movie, but hardly anyone is helping them.

    October 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Neither substantial enough to work as compelling drama nor sufficiently suspenseful as action thriller.

    October 3, 2019 | Full Review…
  • This misty-eyed ode to male bonding might be heartfelt, but is so preposterously plotted that it's impossible to take seriously.
