Storyline

A sniper on a mercenary assassination team, working for an unknown client, kills the minister of mines of the Congo. Terrier's (Sean Penn's) successful kill shot forces him to go into hiding to protect himself and the members of the team from retribution. This includes abruptly abandoning his girlfriend who has no idea what is going on. The assassination, paid for by a foreign mining company, triggers wide spread chaos and death in an already inflamed Congo. Terrier returns to the Congo years later working for an NGO, but eventually finds himself to be the target of a paid hit squad somehow connected to the ministers assassination. This leads to immediate deaths and the endangerment of the people working around him, and forces him back into hiding. In trying to discover who has put a price on his head, he begins to reconnect to the members of his old assassination team, including his old girlfriend. Always aware there is no path to redemption for his crimes, he is also periodically ... Written by RSailor

Worst Movie I Have Ever Seen
28 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It baffles me how this movie made it to the theaters, first of all the screenplay was awful and acting by Sean Penn was beyond terrible. The movie was all over the place and nothing was explained. I could not understand any of the actors, they all sounded like they had marbles in their mouth's. The sound quality was horrendous throughout the whole movie. The only actors that were any good were Javier Bardem and Ray Winstone. The chemistry between Terrier and Annie was not believable, nor did I route for them in the end. I felt nothing toward this movie and any of the characters. The only scene I did get upset about was the scene where they kill Stanley, other than that I could care less about any of the characters. I believe Sean Penn is the worst actor I have ever seen and not sure how he has gotten as far as he has in the movie industry. It was 115 min of my life wasted!!!!!! I do not suggest anyone go and see this unless you want to be bored out of your mind and confused for 115 min, then go right ahead. A waste of money, 2 thumbs down!!!! Plus a middle finger!!!!!
