A Journal For Jordan (2021, D: Denzel Washington) S: Michael B. Jordan

Experience a once-in-a-lifetime love in A Journal For Jordan, a film by Denzel Washington, starring Michael B. Jordan. Exclusively in movie theaters this Christmas.

Directed by Denzel Washington and starring Michael B. Jordan with a screenplay by Virgil Williams, A JOURNAL FOR JORDAN is based on the true story of Sergeant Charles Monroe King (Jordan), a soldier deployed to Iraq who begins to keep a journal of love and advice for his infant son.

A sweeping account of a once-in-a-lifetime love, the film is a powerful reminder of the importance of family and the all-too-human cost of war.

This looks actually pretty awful, didn't expect that at all.

I saw the trailer for this when I went to see Respect on Sunday.

It looks like a nice love story a la Nicholas Sparks. I guess the actress who plays the wife is new since the promo said "Introducing"

I'm going to guess right off the bat that:

Spoiler:


Jordan's character dies in the war. And a lot of this is told through flashbacks

I rented this on Vudu and watched it a few days ago. It was alright I suppose. Pretty by the numbers love story. The trailers basically gave away the entire plot. If this didn’t have Denzel and Michael B. Jordan attached, it could have easily been a Hallmark or Lifetime movie. Definitely more geared to female audiences. I don’t really have much else to say. It was moderately entertaining and not something I would ever rewatch.

I was surprised Denzel was involved with this since it was so average and medicore and did not seem like something he would.
