Storyline

When Peter and his girlfriend, Gail, cross paths with the charismatic Dima on their Moroccan holiday, the forceful Russian is quick to challenge Peter to a friendly game of tennis. But this innocuous contest is not all it seems - Dima is a long-time servant of the Russian mafia, whose new boss, 'The Prince', wants him and his family dead. His only hope is to ask the unsuspecting Peter to broker him sanctuary with the British intelligence services, in return for exposing a vein of corruption that runs right to the heart of the City of London. Soon they find themselves on a tortuous journey through Paris to a safe house in the Swiss Alps and, with the might of the Russian mafia closing in, begin to realise this particular match has the highest stakes of all...

I was shocked when I found out this was based on a novel
13 September 2016 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

The only thing wrong with this movie is the plot. Or rather, now that I found out it's based on a popular novel, the script.

It's got a wonderful cast and technically it's fantastic. Direction, cinematography, music, it's all good. Actor performances are above average as well.

The script however is magnitudes of bad. Makes no sense whatsoever. There's no credible reasoning behind any of the actions taking place. It feels like it was written by a 5 year old. And the ending felt so abrupt and rushed that literally had me staring at the screen with my mouth open.

I don't know what to say. Obviously something went terribly wrong with the adaptation. Maybe there's a director's cut that's at least twice as long that would make some sense to the viewer. As it stands now though it's an unwatchable abomination.
