The Breakdown of '12 Strong', 'Paddington 2', 'The Commuter', 'The Open House', and 'Step Sisters'

The Movie Breakdown has reviews for five 2018 releases, The big theatrical release this week is the war action-drama set in 2001 Afghanistan in 12 Strong. If that doesn't solve your explosion fix, we also discuss the latest Jaume Collet-Serra and Liam Neeson collaboration in the thriller on a train, The Commuter. All that gun firing and face punching may make you want something more uplifting, so we talk about the first big family movie of the year in Paddington 2. Then it is on to Netflix Originals where we look at the horror picture, The Open House, as well as the comedy about step dancing, Step Sisters. As always we really appreciate you listening to the show, and if you enjoy it then please tell other movie fans.
