THE WALL (Theatrical Release USA 2017)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

The Wall
shows how a film can utilize a single, simple setting of an adobe-type wall, cast a single onscreen actor, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, without a true supporting cast, and establish a well-done, worth watching movie. Brilliantly done, this war flick does not work at the B-grade level. Its highly entertaining story, tightly packed into a short, sweet 81 minutes of viewing time, uses every single one of its minutes well.
