Beasts Of No Nation – (2015)
It’s Martin Luther King day and I thought a good way to recognize as we lead into black history month would be by reviewing a black movie I recently saw. (Beasts of No Nation) is an original Netflix film displaying some of the civil crisis going on in Africa. Starring Hollywood actor, Idris Alba, as the leading general of a force of refugees avoiding execution. This movie brings great awareness to those combatants in the African battle grounds. I would recommend this movie with a rating of 3.5 for good screenplay, acting, and an overall very interesting narrative of a young boy as he suddenly learns to put his survival instincts together with his intelligence to outlast the destructive nature of the pursuing war.
