Dog’s Movie House: “Interceptor” Interesting, If Flawed, Netflix Original!

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a look at Netflix’s latest original film, a thriller called “Interceptor.” There’s a lull in the cinematic storm between the current juggernaut “Top Gun: Maverick” and next week’s new blockbuster, “Jurassic World: Dominion.” So we go for the streaming giant this week with a tale about a sea rig missile base called an “Interceptor” base.
