IMDB Trailer



With the recent passing of Chadwick Boseman, my husband and I wanted to watch a movie that we hadn't seen before with this amazing actor in it. 

This movie came up on our feed when we searched his name. I was intrigued and excited to watch it... It did not disappoint.

The story is about a South African man named Jacob King (Yes, he has his signature, Wakandan accent), who has come to LA to search for his missing sister. He finds out that she has had a hard life and has fallen in with the wrong crowd. This ultimately leads to her death.  Of course, Jacob sets out to find the people responsible for her murder and makes them pay. 

The thing is, we don't know much about Jacobs past or present at the beginning of the movie. We soon learn that he's good at finding people, tracking down information and of course, kicking ass. 

At the end of the movie, you know his whole back story, his family and how he knows how to do what he does. It was a wonderful movie that kept me glued to my seat the whole time. A definite must.
