WAR...what is it good for??? - Outside the Wire (2021) - Review

Updated: Feb 6, 2021

When disgraced drone pilot, Lt. Harp (Damson Idris) is sent into a deadly militarized zone after disobeying orders, he finds himself working for Capt. Leo (Anthony Mackie), an android officer tasked with locating a doomsday device before insurgents do.

Netflix has been gaining ground in the content creation department. This movie is a great glimpse at what war would be like in a few years, if robots and AI continue at the rate they are increasing now. Anthony Mackie is great in this movie, as is Damson Idris. I would caution people before watching that there are many scenes of war that are quite visceral to watch and very graphic. This is a great depiction of war and how the soldiers see it from their perspectives. How quickly your view can change when you are up close to the carnage. Well worth a watch. Let me know what you think of it.

Ranking 7.5/10
