Storyline

Michael Mason, a pick-pocket living in Paris steals a bag with a teddy bear in it. Not realizing the toy contains a timed bomb, he tosses it aside on a busy street. A few seconds later it explodes, killing four people. CCTV footage reveals Masons face and the French police tag him as a terrorist threat. The explosion, although botched, was set up by a select group of the French Interior Ministry as a decoy so they can make a half billion dollar digital transfer from a bank, (closed on French National Day) -hence the title Bastille Day. In a separate CIA investigation the unruly agent Sean Briar, discovers the real story behind Masons "terrorist attack". The two men, on different sides of the law, collaborate to bring the corrupt members of the Ministry down. Written by kwedgwood@hotmail.com

Better than Bourne!
17 August 2016 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

I am not speaking frivolously when I say that overall, although produced with a fraction of the budget, this is a much better film than the fourth Bourne.

Specifically:

* great opener -- film opens with a dramatic situation that immediately grabs the viewers' attention. You have "connection" from the getgo.

* great script --- many layers and twists. Clever dialog. (At one point the bad guys gloat about how they are manipulating "the hashtags" -- thereby dissing an entire generation. Another line of dialog refers to the use of "action and reaction" to achieve their end -- which is a very sophisticated dig at how politics are managed today.)

* Director writer Watkins know to keep things interesting, you are never bored.

* Elba is nothing short of awesome. Other reviewers are saying he could be a major international action figure. Agree!

Solid entertainment, does not take the viewer for granted, and the clever story keeps you hooked.
