What are 3 emoji I’d use to represent the movie?
What’s something that stuck out to me while watching?
- The camaraderie between Jake Gyllenhall and Michael Peña is palpable and terrific. It’s why I love this movie so much.
- I also enjoyed seeing some other (now) big names in here like Anna Kendrick, Frank Grillo, David Harbour, and America Ferrera.
- All the first-person shaky-cam footage-style filming really worked for me to increase the grittiness and intensity of some of the scenarios they went through.
- Despite having seen this multiple times, the ending still DESTROYS me. What a gut-punch!
Why did I decide to press play on this movie?
- Just another stop on the David Ayer-directed filmography. Plus, it’s one of my favorite movies and am happy to rewatch it every few years.
What are some other similar movies?
- Street Kings, Sicario, Bad Boys
