Coming this Tuesday from director William Kaufman and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment is the fight to save an embassy with “Jarhead 3: The Siege.”
Marine Corporal Evan Albright (Charlie Weber) didn’t think he was going to see much action at his new post at the U.S. Embassy in the Middle East. That idea in his head is all about to change when an extremist thought to be dead is seen alive scoping out the compound housing the Marines.
Believing they are after Ambassador Cahill (Stephen Hogan), it becomes clear that it is much deeper than that. The group is looking for someone very specific but Gunny Raines (Scott Adkins), Hansen (Tom Ainsley), Lopez (Erik Valdez) and Blake (Dante Basco) know they need to protect the Ambassador, Olivia Winston (Sasha Jackson) and everyone inside.
Getting a message to Major Lincoln (Dennis Haysbert) about how critical the situation is at the compound, they load up heading out to help – but will it be top late?
With national security at stake, these soldiers give it their all – and then some!
Joe Corrigall as Stamper, Hadrian Howard as Khaled, Charlie de Melo as Jamal, Romeo Miller as Sunshine, Kalina Stoimenova as Rashmi, Ed Spila as Kraus and Vlado Mihailov as Mohammed to round out the cast.
“Jarhead 3: The Siege” is an action packed film from start to finish. Each character brings something to the film that is unique and intense. There are a few light hearted moments between the soldiers that gave me a chuckle or two because they definitely had the camaraderie needed to give this film authenticity.
The story is one that is eerily reminiscent of some situations that have been in the headlines but the film also reminds us of how fragile the world is. These soldiers are doing their job in a place where often times it is difficult to tell friend from foe.
Weber as Corporal Albright comes into a situation he knows is dangerous and counts on his brothers to guide him. Adkins as Raines is definitely a man you want on your side as he, along with the others, tries to keep the terror from the main area where the others are in hiding. Haysbert knows his men have what it takes but there is nothing wrong with a little back up!
