Drone (2017, dir. Jason Bourque)

A bereaved father vows to get revenge on the drone operator who killed his family. Flawed (too soapy in places) but nevertheless interesting drama about the moralities of surveillance, drone usage, and private military contracting. Strong performances throughout.

Army of One (2016, dir. Larry Charles)

A handyman believes he’s on a mission from God to kill Osama Bin Laden. Shrill semi-improvised comedy based on a true story, with Nicolas Cage turning in an unrestrained performance. Inevitably, a couple of good moments, but there’s a lot of shouting to sit through.

Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade (1989, dir. Steven Spielberg)

Jones goes in search of his lost father, and the Holy Grail. The third Jones adventure is a sparkling comedy with heaps of good set-pieces and a tongue-in-cheek sensibility. Some iffy early CG and plotting aside, this is rip-roaring stuff, though the lightest in the series.

Lone Survivor (2013, dir. Peter Berg)

A covert US incursion in Afghanistan goes awry. Effective mission-gone-bad thriller which sensibly avoids close scrutiny of politics, focusing on Hawksian camaraderie and on delivering a sensational sustained action set-piece.
