Greyhound (2020) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
So Apple TV Plus grabs it’s first exclusive movie, the Tom Hanks written & starring Greyhound (another victim of Covid19 cinema shut down), a tenses claustrophobic war movie that escapes the need for depth and character to instead deliver a tight, stressful and action packed old school game of Battleships. Well kinda.   Hanks is brilliant as you’d expect and the script is full of well researched technical detail.  The film may be hurt by its overall lack of substance but its still thrilling sub 90 minute ride that’s well worth using that Free Apple TV Plus subscription for (if you got a new iPad/iPhone this year of course).

Best Bit: The first sub

Buy, Stream, Avoid: Stream

If You Liked this Try: Captain Philips, Das Boot, Midway
