OUTSIDE THE WIRE (2021): New Trailer From Anthony Mackie, Damson Idris, Emily Beecham, Michael Kelly…

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  Outside the Wire (2021).


Outside the Wire is a new action/sci-fi movie that has next to nothing to do with HBO’s hit series The Wire. Furthermore, one of the key cast members is called Idris. But, Idris is not his first name. Still with me?

Starring Anthony Mackie, Emily Beecham, Damson Idris and Michael Kelly, director Mikael Håfström’s film is about a drone pilot and android officer’s mission to locate a doomsday device in a deadly militarised zone.

I’m in for the artificial intelligence, action sequences, stunt work, and the promising Idris/Mackie dynamic.

Kristina Tonteri-Young, Enzo Cilenti, Bobby Lockwood, Henry Garrett, Velibor Topic, Elliot Edusah, Adam Fielding, Alexandra Szucs, Nick Wittman, Christine Grace Szarko and Louis Boyer also star.

Outside The Wire Release Dates: January 15th, 2021 (US), Netflix…

SECRET IN THEIR EYES (2015): The Things I Liked…

Directed by Billy Ray; Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Alfred Molina are the stars of Secret In Their Eyes. A story about a group of FBI Investigators; a close-knit team for whom everything changes when they learn the identity of the victim of their new murder case.

Ray’s movie follows the events and decisions that end up leading to a surprising, yet understandable conclusion, the revelation of which is a key highlight.

Seeing evidence of the depth of the friendships between the main protagonists – before, during and after the central crime, that is the thing I enjoyed most about Secret In Their Eyes . One more great moment would have been when the audience learns of  the victim’s identity. But…! that little nugget was unfortunately given away for free in the film’s trailer.

Secret In Their Eyes could have been a better movie . The cast performed well but I think they were let down by post production, namely what felt like an awkward overuse of flashback and the trailer edit.

Happy Film Loving 🙂
