    ★★★

    Ron Howard, a historically inconsistent and somewhat vanilla director responsible for the likes of A Beautiful Mind, Apollo 13, and of course, the unforgettable Solo: A Star Wars Story, outdoes his reputation with an adaption of the critically acclaimed documentary The Rescue that bolsters plenty of star power with Viggo Mortensen and Colin Farrell, to serviceable results.
    Surprisingly, its somewhat of a technical marvel, its underwater diving sequences are brilliantly shot, and feel pretty tense and claustrophobic from scene to…

    Wildly entertaining and thoroughly tense, this prequel takes the franchise back to its roots with successful results.

The ending is a let down as well, and slightly convoluted in its execution, and overall the film just does far too little to keep you invested throughout. 
    Nyong’o is fantastic, she was long overdue for a lead role such as this, in…
