Wick's Review

Created Jan 02, 2023 06:36AM PST • Edited Jan 12, 2023 02:08AM PST

  1. Quality
  2. Very Good 3.5

    Devotion is a poorly-titled twofer: a damn good war movie about a Medal of Honor recipient and his heroic squadron, plus a powerful biopic about the Navy’s first black fighter pilot. It’s triply good for reviving these true stories about the sadly overlooked Korean War. All in all, that makes it a very good movie.

  3. Very Good 3.5
    Jonathan Majors & Glen Powell are well mismatched movie buddies: Majors as the legendary Ensign Jesse Brown & Powell as Medal of Honor recipient Lt. Tom Hudner.

    Majors jumped offscreen before as a Buffalo Soldier in the great Revisionist-Western Hostiles and in the Detroit crime drama White Boy Rick. It’s not surprising that he’s up to the challenge of essaying such a historically freighted role as Jesse L. Brown. Ensign Jesse L. Brown was a US Navy officer, the first African-American aviator to complete the Navy’s flight training program, a recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross, and the first African-American naval officer killed in the Korean War, where he was a hero. Him.

    Powell also jumps offscreen, which is what he does in every movie he appears – jumps offscreen. Glen Powell is a M.O.V.I.E.S.T.A.R. He proved it twice over in 2016, first in Everybody Wants Some!! and then in Hidden Figures, as John Glenn for goodness’ sake. So, his quietly charismatic performance in Devotion is par for the course.
