American Assassin

My review of American Assassin, the new movie: Thumbs up.

Best part: During the climactic scene, we learn that the Navy has a ship called the U.S.S. Flynn. This is a hat tip to the late Vince Flynn, the author of the books upon which the movie is based.

Seven years ago, I podcasted with Flynn about American Assassin. And here’s my new recent podcast with Kyle Mills, the author of Enemy of the State, which continues the series that Flynn started.

John J. Miller, the national correspondent for National Review and host of its Great Books podcast, is the director of the Dow Journalism Program at Hillsdale College. He is the author of A Gift of Freedom: How the John M. Olin Foundation Changed America.
