Guy Ritchie’s The Covenant

Sergeant John Kinley (Jake Gyllenhaal) is saved from the Taliban by his Afghan interpreter Ahmed (Dar Salim) following an ambush. John returns to the US; Ahmed, who does not get safe passage, goes into hiding, fearing reprisal from the Taliban. John decides to rescue him. It’s an engaging war movie with fine performances from Gyllenhaal and Ahmed. About 300 Afghan interpreters are said to have been killed by the Taliban after the US withdrew from Afghanistan in 2021.

Danny (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his brother Will (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) rob a bank. As they are about to make their exit, the police swoop in.
