This isn't about politics or religion, it is about being human.
3 August 2019 | by christopherbradburySee all my reviews

A tense throwback to the thrillers of the 1970s, Red Sea is about the aided exodus of Jews from Ethiopia by Israel in the late 70s. The script, direction and cast, main and supporting, are pretty much faultless and Chris Evans proves, without doubt, that there is life beyond the MCU; the boy can act. I do question political and religious bias, especially in light of Israel's record on human rights; however, I do not question heart and entertainment value. A great film. See it.
