Seal is recruited by the CIA and is used to become part of one the biggest CIA operations in South America.Cruise is no stranger to starring in an action movie. His list of movies include: “The Mummy,” “Mission Impossible,” “Edge of Tomorrow,” “Jack Reacher” and many more. This time around Cruise was not just used in crazy stunts and action scenes, but had to portray the full emotional scope of a man working for the CIA and trying to support his family. He has to show the happiness of making millions and the low of getting in major trouble when caught.While his acting along with Domhnall Gleeson is well done, the rest of this cast was very forgettable. Sarah Wright who played the wife of Seal in the film didn’t add much other than something for him to “fight for” if things went bad.The first half of the movie to many will feel like a drag as it does a lot of setting up for the second half and has little to no action during this time. Once the second half starts up, it heats up with action, twists and plenty happening all at once.Verdict:Overall, the acting is good by Cruise but not his best movie by far. The rest of the cast is forgettable and boring. Although the second half is filled with a lot of fun the first half can get very boring and takes a while to set things up. But this movie makes for a fun evening if there is nothing better to go see at the movies and you can’t get enough of  Tom Cruise.6.5/10 Review: ‘Black Panther’ delivered even with high expectations ReddIt Facebook ReddIt Photo by Universal Pictures William Konighttps://www.tcu360.com/author/william-konig/last_img read more

Ocean City Police Officers Chosen for Trump Inauguration Security

first_imgBy Donald WittkowskiOn Jan. 20, officers from the Ocean City Police Department will protect their chief – the Commander in Chief.Fourteen local officers will participate in a historic event by providing security during the Washington, D.C., parade up Pennsylvania Avenue for President-elect Donald Trump’s inauguration.Ocean City Police Capt. Jay Prettyman said the officers will help out with crowd control and traffic direction for the parade route.“They certainly will enjoy going down there to be part of the inauguration, which is a historic event,” Prettyman said. “They’re going to do everything that they’re asked.”Ocean City Police Capt. Jay PrettymanThe officers will leave for Washington on Jan. 18 and are scheduled to receive special training the following day at the National Guard Armory to prepare them for their duties on Jan. 20. Prettyman said they are scheduled to report for duty at 4 a.m. on inauguration day and will work between 16 and 18 hours helping out with the parade. They will return to Ocean City on Jan. 21.This will be the third time that the Ocean City Police Department has been part of the security for a president’s inaugural parade. The department also participated in the 2009 and 2013 parades when President Barack Obama took the oath of office.Starting in 2009, Ocean City’s former Police Chief Bob Bevin established ties with the Washington Metropolitan Police Department, which led to an invitation to help provide security for both of Obama’s inaugural parades, Prettyman said.The Metropolitan Police Department contacted Prettyman to enlist Ocean City’s help for Trump’s inauguration. Prettyman said he also recruited officers from the police departments in Somers Point, Wildwood and Middle Township for the parade.The Metropolitan Police Department will pay all of the travel, hotel and meal expenses for Ocean City’s officers, as well as their salaries.“We have no out-of-pocket expenses for the event,” Prettyman said.With so many of the officers heading down to Washington for the parade, there will be some rescheduling of the shifts for the remaining police force to ensure enough manpower to protect Ocean City, Prettyman noted.“We can do it comfortably without sacrificing service to our town,” he said.Officers were selected at random for the inauguration duties after they put their names on a sign-up sheet. Preference was given to officers who had not participated in an inauguration before in order to “try to spread the wealth,” Prettyman said. Donald J.
