Starting the month in style is Elsa Pataki-directed action movie Interceptor. As the title suggests, the film takes place at an interceptor base, a defensive military station always ready to shoot down incoming enemy missiles. With the nuclear threat hanging over the world, each major country has its own interception bases to minimize the damage of possible attacks. So what if Russian pawns infiltrated an interceptor base, trying to disable those defensive measures before the Red Nation missiles were even launched? Some would think that the “bad Russian” trope was out of fashion. Well, apparently, not quite. Interceptor follows Pataky as she attempts to take down the invaders on her own, after only spending a few hours at an intercept base. Sounds like a hell of a first day on the job. The footage from the film teases a classic action movie where the hero uses his wits and his fists to take down an army of bad guys. Take the popcorn. This one is a must watch!
