Jonathan Majors (Creed III) and Glen Powell (Top Gun: Maverick) star in the inspirational true story of two elite US Navy fighter pilots who helped turn the tide in the most brutal battle in the Korean War. Jesse Brown, the first Black aviator in Navy history and his fellow fighter pilot and friend, Tom Hudner. Their heroic sacrifices and enduring friendship would ultimately make them the Navy's most celebrated wingmen.
Performance wise, Jonathan Majors is a great actor with lots of range. He was absolutely fantastic as He Who Remains during the first season of Loki and he was noteworthy on Lovecraft County. I cannot comment on his latest MCU motion picture because I have not seen it, but having seen the performance he turned in for Devotion I think it is safe to state we should be seeing him in more projects in the future. He is the draw for the film in my humble opinion and he was the reason why I wanted to see Devotion.
