CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Ben Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on May 13th, 2021, reviewing the new film “Those Who Wish Me Dead” in theaters and HBO Max beginning May 14th.

Angelina Jolie is Hannah, a hard drinking and reckless fire fighter in Montana, a “smoke jumper” who parachutes into out-of-control forest fires. After a tragedy occurs on her watch, she is relegated to observation work in a high-rise fire tower. Meanwhile, an accountant with proof of crimes on a mob boss is on the run with his son Connor (Finn Little), being pursued by professional assassins (Aiden Gillen and Nicholas Hoult). The son manages to escape, and Hannah finds him wandering the woods, where it is now her responsibility to protect him.

Male version of a “bimbo”) energy.
