THE WAVE

I┬árented this Norwegian disaster film because it was touted as one of those “Great Horror Films You’ve Never Seen.” NOT! Not a horror film. Plot: maverick scientist’s warnings ignored, he’s separated from his family when the worst happens, must survive the disaster (in this case a fjord tsunami) in order to save them. (Sound familiar?)

CRIMINAL

Better than I expected. Kind of strange to see Ryan Reynolds playing the donor part after playing the recipient in “Self/less.” Kevin Costner as a sociopathic criminal (Jericho) and Gal Gadot as Ryan’s widow. A place-keeper plot. What made it interesting to me was Jericho’s arc. I thought Costner was affecting in the part.
