Devotion – Releasing in Theaters and Streaming
Rotten Tomatoes Reviewer Score – 83%
Telling the tale of two elite fighter pilots, this movie showcases Lieutenant Tom Hudner, played by Glen Powell, and Jesse Brown, played by Jonathan Majors, and their sacrifices which made them the U.S. Navy’s most celebrated wingmen.
It’s great to see Jonathon Majors in more roles, and to be honest, outside MASH, the Korean War hasn’t received a lot of attention in the media. Everyone is quick to jump to Vietnam, WWII or Desert Storm, but there is a lot of stories and books based on people’s experiences in that theater of war.
