Netflix has been pretty great all year about delivering an action fix at least once a month with their original movies and later this month sees the release of Mosul. Based on true events and produced by Joe and Anthony Russo, Mosul follows an elite Iraqi SWAT team that remains behind in the titular city after it becomes occupied by ISIS and constantly battle despite overwhelming odds. The movie focuses on Kawa (Adam Bessa), a new, young recruit to the team who joins when his uncle is killed. He must quickly learn the team’s tactics and rules from their grizzled leader Jasem (Suhail Dabbach) as they rescue children and assault an ISIS stronghold. The movie is directed by Matthew Michael Carnahan, the brother of Joe Carnahan, in his directorial debut after writing for movies like World War Z, 21 Bridges, The Kingdom, and Deepwater Horizon. The movie is out on November 26th and you can check out the trailer below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
