    I was catching up on my backlog and I liked this a lot. On the same lines as the Gunman. I was surprised at a couple of things. 1) That the lead here (Dylan O'Brien) is the Maze Runner guy 2) That Dylan O'Brien is a very decent action star 3) how gory and violent this movie represents death and pain

    It doesn't do anything special over the slew of other spy films- but the motivation and the cold open feel authentic. Recommended for a watch.

    I got this from the library a couple weeks ago and found it pleasant surprise. Agreed its not rewriting the book on spy thrillers, but I dug it. I was really surprised by the third act because as I recall, none of that big stuff was in the trailer so it worked well for me.

    Briefly. But cut in a way that it is not something you would really remember.

    Huh, theyre were bits of it in there. Oh well, anyway you slice it, I enjoyed it. Also I like the guy that played John Carter of Mars and I love me some Scott Adkins always.
