The Terminal List Review

The Terminal List Review

This week, Prime Video releases the highly anticipated original, The Terminal List.

When The Terminal List begins, we are introduced to James Reece (Chris Pratt), commander of a Navy SEALS platoon that is on a mission is Syria when a wiretap goes off, killing the entire team except for Reece and Ernest ‘Boozer’ Vickers (Jared Shaw).

At a debrief, Reece’s memory doesn’t match those of the original logs, and he returns home to his wife Lauren (Riley Keough) and daughter Lucy (Arlo Mertz).

Reece soon crosses paths with Katie Buranek (Constance Wu),  a risk-seeking war correspondent reporter, who approaches him asking questions about his failed mission. He initially ignores her request, but it becomes clear that things are not as clear-cut as they first appear, and the duo soon team up to get to uncover the truth. Joining Reece’s best mate Ben (Taylor Kitsch), they soon discover that dark forces are working against him, endangering not only his life but the lives of those around him.

Adapted for the screen from Jack Carr’s bestselling novel of the same name by David DiGilio, The Terminal List hooks from its opening battle scene, through to its magnificent finale in episode eight.

Pratt is perfectly cast as Reece and given a lot of interesting material to work with. Kitsch is also delightful and perfectly cast. Watch out for Jai Courtney and Jeanne Tripplehorn too.

The Terminal List is stacked with talent and action scenes. Throw in a quest for truth and you have a pretty good weekend of viewing ahead of you.
