GUY RITCHIE’S THE COVENANT (2023) – My rating: 8.8/10

Leave a comment



Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant (or simply The Covenant) is an action thriller that was co-written by Guy Ritchie, Ivan Atkinson, and Marn Davies. The film was also produced and directed by Guy Ritchie. The film was released in the United States by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, and internationally by Amazon Prime Video. Its plot follows a former U.S. Army special operations sergeant and Afghanistan War veteran, John Kinley, who returns to the country to rescue the interpreter who once saved his life from the Taliban. I was fairly sure this was going to be a good movie based on the trailers.  It was an excellent movie in which Guy Richie did an outstanding job.

In March 2018, during the War in Afghanistan, U.S. Army special operations Sergeant John Kinley (Jake Gyllenhaal) recruits an Afghan named Ahmed (Dar Salim) to interpret with the locals on a mission. Ahmed tells Kinley he needs the money…

Chevalier poster.jpegChevalier is a biographical drama based on the life of the titular French-Caribbean musician Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges. Chevalier is directed by Stephen Williams and written by Stefani Robinson. When I saw the trailer, I was so intrigued by what I saw that I couldn’t wait to see Chevalier stick it to the uptight, racist establishment. I wasn’t disappointed. In my opinion, they did a good job as they stuck pretty much to the true life story.

The movie depicts the rise and resurgence of Joseph Bologne/Chevalier de Saint-Georges (Kelvin Harrison Jr.), a French-Caribbean violinist, and composer who rose to fame through his musical prodigy, fencing, dancing, and horseback riding.  He was honored with the title of “gendarme de la garde” by King Louis XVI, for fencing. Joseph Bologne was the illegitimate son of an African slave Nanon (Ronke Adekoluejo) and a wealthy French plantation owner George…
