    ★★½

    The American remake of the horrifying French original follows the same story with a few unnecessary tweaks. The film is acted well, although this version doesn’t pack the same gut punch or level of uncomfortable gore that the original does.  
    If the original didn’t exist, this would likely be appreciated more. 
    But when you have the original available there is no need for this one.

    Story follows a young man from Pakistan who moves to America and finds success in the corporate world.  Pulled between his success and his homeland, things change radically after the events of 9/11 forcing him to make life changing decisions. 
    This is a really good movie Riz Ahmed in the lead and support from Liev Schrieber, Kiefer Sutherland and Kate Hudson. 
    Well worth watching.

    Here Josh Brolin’s character is brought in to head up a mission to pit the Mexican cartels against each other by any means necessary. 
    This was exciting, intense and highly entertaining.  Great cast with the also returning Benicio Del Toro. 
    I was blown away with how much I loved this movie.  
    A must see.
