Jay´s Review

Here we have a good old-fashioned action movie, set in scenic European cities, with plenty of vehicular mayhem, gunfire, fisticuffs and blowie uppie stuff. It has loyalties, betrayals, lost loves, found loves, a child in jeopardy and people to root for. What more could we want?

Directed by Roger Donaldson ("The Bank Job") it features:

  • Pierce Brosnan ("Love is All You Need") Devereaux is a former CIA agent asked to come back for a personal job... Is it just me, or has Brosnan improved with age?
  • Luke Bracey ("G.I. Joe: Retaliation") Mason is an agent who works with Devereaux. Based on the number of projects in production, it looks like I'm not the only one to see the potential in this Australian import!
  • Olga Kurylenko ("Oblivion") Alice seems to be swept into a situation that is waaay over her head.
  • Amila Terzimehic (this Streisand look-alike is a Bosnian gymnast) Alexa is focused, lethal and lithe.

There is something about an international cast that appeals to me. Brosnan was born in Ireland; Donaldson and Bracey are both from Australia; Kurylenko, the Ukraine; Terzmehic, Bosnia. There are many others in the cast, very few of which are from the United States. In my opinion, film is an international endeavor and I appreciate it.

Expect some profanity, a pair of (not too) sweaty bodies, a suggested rape, lots of violence and an involving story. Our screening audience was impressed.
