First Kill (2017) and Six (TV Series)

Get some gun action!?

First Kill (2017)

To toughen up his nerdy son, Will (Hayden Christensen) takes him hunting and the pair encounter some criminals in the woods which naturally leads to some kidnapping and a fair amount of gun violence, though not enough to my liking. With budget constraints that you can feel through the screen, I suppose the writers opted to make their script get all the unbelievable parts - and no, that's not a good thing. It's stuff like: there's a foot chase where both parties find thoughtfully parked and shiney new quad bikes IN THE MIDDLE OF A FOREST with keys already in the ignition... Yeah. Right. The end result is an average tale told by a below average story teller. Not recommended.

Six (2 Seasons)

This two season show focuses on a squad of American seals, constantly on the very violent hunt for terrorists. Decent acting, action and plot make this interesting and I have to say that even the "stories at home" (because they can't be fighting all the time) are ok. I quite enjoyed this one and am sad they didn't make a season three. Recommended.
