He subsequently enlists in the Marines, sustaining severe injuries when the chopper deploying him to Afghanistan is shot down. While in intense rehab, he grabs the attention of Harper, a man who works for the CIA and who would like Jack to finish his studies, get a job on Wall Street, and seek out terrorist plots through their financial transactions. Ten years pass. Jack finds anomalies in the accounts of a Russian named Cherevin and thinks he should go to Russia to check out what's going on. He's told not to tell anyone who he is, including his girlfriend Cathy, which makes her doubt him when she catches him in some lies. In Russia, Cherevin assigns someone to assist Jack, but when the two are alone, the man tries to kill Jack instead, so Jack kills him. Obviously, Cherevin is hiding something.

Hollow and bleak
30 October 2015 | by (INDIA) – See all my reviews

One of the worst spy films i saw in recent memory.I had no idea what is going on the screen.I was left wondering after the completion of the movie about the content of the movie.The movie had a pretty decent story to tell and if expressed properly could have been turned into a good entertainer. It is basically and action thriller but all the thrill elements were missing.I didn't get thrilled even for a minute.The clumsy handling of the story was the main reason for this failure.The story is handled awkwardly.I was unable to connect with the story.Nearly 3/4th of the movie was wasted in buildup which was too repulsive to bear.The heist scene was laughable.The patriotic theme of the movie was also too subtle. Performance wise everyone is OK.Direction is the most infirm thing of the movie.I expected it to be a decent entertainer but it was completely bland. 3.1 out of 10 would be enough.
