Number of Times Seen – 1 (14 Dec 2014)
Brief Synopsis – An ex-CIA agent trying to live a peaceful life get mixed up with the Russian mafia when trying to protect a young girl.
My Take on it – What is it with actors that try to remain action heroes well into their 60’s?
Denzel has been making movies like this for years and just like Liam Neeson, he just keeps at it whether the movies are good or bad.
This one was neither, but it also wasn’t anything like the TV show it was presumably based on either.
This movie sat in development hell for years and it’s probably because no one thought it would be better than average.
It still isn’t.
Bottom Line – Typical Denzel action vehicle that feels like a rehash of his previous attempts of acting like Liam Neeson.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
