Director: Ferdinando Cito Filomarino
Year Released: 2021
While on holiday in Greece, Beckett (John David Washington) and his girlfriend April (Alicia Vikander) get into an accident driving one night and just so happen to land at a mysterious building where a child is being kidnapped for political purposes - April doesn't survive the crash, and then everyone and his uncle is out to kill Beckett. It tips the viewer off early on that it's going to be a chase movie by mentioning "figures in a landscape" - which is an "existential" 1970 film directed by Joseph Losey - but it has the same issues as that one: almost everyone (except the activist ladies and the one older gentleman) is incredibly corrupt - this includes the police force and workers at the U.S. Embassy - and it's all movement and no thought: Washington is a confused victim who runs more than he ever did for the St. Louis Rams, and it's never clear what the real backstory is (Communists? Fascists? Goldman Sachs again?). The only thing I know for certain is that when the main character gets back to the States, he should leave a very nasty review on Expedia.
