THE AMBUSH Review: Pierre Morel’s Latest Blows Up The Bad Guys And Hands Its Hero A Posthumous, Powerful Send-Off

The Middle East continues to be a hotbed of unrest. That was especially the case in 2015 when Yemen’s recognized government fell from an Islamic extremist takeover and UAE allied forces were implemented to back the Yemeni military and help keep peace in the region among civilians.
