It’s like The Expendables meet the Nazis in The Monuments Men (taking inspiration from the book of the same name). George Clooney’s A-list ensemble cast go in search of stolen artefacts in Germany, but rather than striving for laughs or whole-hearted seriousness, the film plods along with no great urgency and is instantly forgettable.

Death, though tragic, occurs for all. More significant is how one lived. Hocking lived and died in service to imperialism.

Hocking traveled over 100,000 kilometers from his home to enforce and maintain US hegemony in the Middle East. Hocking’s death should not be mourned, as his life was spent as an oppressor.
