An Hour and Thirty Minutes Were Intercepted by Interceptor

Interceptor is a movie about Russian missiles attacking 16 U.S. cities, and a top secret military base is the last hope of intercepting the missiles.

The first thing I didn’t like about this movie was that nobody seemed scared enough that America was going to be destroyed if they failed. Maybe they tried to portray that American Soldiers had to be tough under high risk situations but they just didn’t seem concerned enough at all.

The bad guys ended up being white American domestic terrorists. And their reasons for wanting to destroy America was as white privileged as it could get. Pretty much the America they know now is not the America they once knew so the want to destroy it.

Another issue is that the main bad guy planned his attack for six years and got every moved disrupted by a single female. It’s so convenient that this female Soldier had the strength and skills to defeat every single male single handed because that Corporal she had in the room was useless for most of the fight.

But there really is no use of criticizing this movie anymore. It’s not like it was promoted as a Block Buster hit. It’s simply entertainment for a random Tuesday night when no sports are on.

    I won’t make the typical comment about the too familiar scenario.
    But, this type of movie is so typical even the people who make them SHOULD be bored. Don’t they ever tire of themselves.
