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. This base, we are told, is one of two the U.S. has to shoot down enemy nuclear missiles. Enter a female captain with a past who is forced to fight to keep a group of terrorists from taking control of the platform in order to start World War III. In interesting premise is marred somewhat by spotty acting, some less-than-stellar special effects, and some holes in the script.

Howdy Folks! It’s The Kendog here with a new film on Netflix featuring a guy who should be a waaay bigger star than he is. The film is called “Welcome To Sudden Death” and the featured actor as Michael Jai White, a talented fellow who, were there any justice in this world, would be near the top of the food chain in Hollywood when it comes to action stars. The film itself is a fairly formulaic affair but has enough slightly off-center performances and decent action to warrant a watch. It also is less than an hour-and-a-half long, which means it doesn’t overstay its welcome. It also features as its biggest asset the cinematic badass known as Michael Jai White!Continue reading
