“Those Who Wish Me Dead” is about a Smoke Jumper and a traumatized young boy who are fighting for their lives as they make their way through a National Survival Forest fleeing from two relentless Assassins.
On the surface, “Those Who wish Me Dead” looked to be a very meaty story, but in reality, the back story and plot are mysteriously missing. Several incidents occur at the beginning of the movie, but the reason is not quite clear. It is a true mystery thriller.
The cast of characters is pretty deep with undeveloped back stories. I have to applaud Angelina Jolie! She is always playing a strong tough woman.
There is plenty of action and intrigue, but that is not enough to make-up for the missing back story or plot.
In addition to being on the big screen, “Those Who Wish Me Dead” is streaming on HBO MAX. You have choices as to where you see it.
This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!!
