Sicario 2: Soldado

Non-existent plot

(Edit) 07/06/2021

The only thing going for this film is that it has a few nice scenery shots. The plot is non-existent in that in consists of three or four totally hackneyed sub-plots that the authors are incapable of linking into a sensible whole. The sub-plots could have been woven together to make a clichéd but acceptable story, but they weren’t. The whole is so insulting to one’s intelligence that suspension of disbelief is impossible. I was bored.

The Quiet American

Excellent

(Edit) 16/04/2021

Great story — of course: Graham Greene — nicely carried over into film. Excellent capture of atmosphere.  Great acting all around. (I loved the older sister)

Black Sea

Good little film

(Edit) 21/04/2021

A good script, well filmed. What was particularly nice about this film was that the Russians were real and spoke proper Russian, not some western actor’s pathetic attempt.
