96% The Pool (2019) To say the entire film is a series of risible, ridiculous contrivances is stating the obvious. Director and writer Ping Lumprapleong stages the action with finesse, though, and the tight pace enlivens the tension. ‐ ScreenAnarchy

2.5/5 71% Danger Close (2019) Solely focused on the soldiers from Australia and New Zealand involved in the Battle of Long Tan, the cinematic hagiography seeks to honor their memory and succeeds. Beyond a core audience, however, most other viewers may remain nonplussed.‐ ScreenAnarchy
