The Wall, a movie review

A movie review by: Lee Sonogan

(2017) 1h29min/ Drama, Thriller, War


Matthews: See that. Hit and run. Whoever he is, he’s gone.
Isaac: Unless he’s a pro.
Matthews: We got no movement, not a sign of a shadow. I’m going down there, that’s it.
Isaac: Roger that.

The movie stars Aaron Taylor Johnson, WWE wrestler John Cena and Laith Nakli. This movie is described as two American Soldiers are trapped by a lethal sniper, with only an unsteady wall between them. With a budget of $3 million, the movie made $3 and a half million at the box office. You may know the director Doug Liman from such movies as Edge of tomorrow, The Bourne identity and Jumper.

Nicholas Irving, former US RANGER Sniper and author of The Reaper is a technical advisor on this project. Irving was nicknamed ‘The reaper’ during his tours of duty in Afghanistan. The Wall was scheduled to be released on March 10, 2017, by Roadside Attractions but was pushed back to May 12, 2017

Being trapped and average scenes. It creates interest of a bad situation. In the dialog you try to figure out where the sniper is hiding. The bad guy has all the power and all he wants is to know some story’s about the solders or is it? Aaron Taylor Johnson does a very good job acting with the dialog with the bad guy. The ending originally, the film was to have a less ambiguous ending with Isaac being rescued and the sniper being killed. I recommend to people who like war movies with mostly only two characters and a low-budget.

Matthews: Scope is an extension in my eye. The trigger is an extension of my fist. The rifle is an extension of me! And I’ll strike you down!
