The Beekeeper

The Goggler Podcast #479: The Beekeeper

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Today, on The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review the brand new Jason Stratham actioner, The Beekeeper.

The Beekeeper is now showing in Malaysian cinemas.

Bees are timeless. Mankind’s relationship with bees started before the birth of civilization and bee iconography goes back thousands of years and exists in every part of the world. There are rock paintings in Spain over 8000 years old of a woman harvesting honey and vials of edible honey were discovered in the pyramids of Egypt. Equally timeless is the cruel exploitation of the weak and vulnerable by the ruthless and indifferent and just as timeless is the need for a white knight, a warrior for justice, a hero to protect society, the way a beekeeper protects his hive.

The rise of beekeeping over 10,000 years ago parallels the rise of civilization. It’s simple. No bees, no agriculture. No agriculture, no civilization. Bees are essential to life and beekeepers are essential to bees. In the way that a queen, drone or worker bee co-exist and thrive in a well-maintained hive, so do people thrive in a lawful and just society. But when a system is thrown out of order by corruption and greed, you need The Beekeeper.

The Beekeeper was directed by David Ayer and stars Jason Statham, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Josh Hutcherson, Bobby Naderi, Minnie Driver, David Witts, Michael Epp, Taylor James, Jemma Redgrave, Enzo Cilenti, Phylicia Rashad, and Jeremy Irons.
