Storyline

Twenty three-year-old Mitch lost his parents to a tragic car accident at the age of fourteen, and his girlfriend to a terrorist attack just as they were engaged. Seeking revenge, he is enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy as a black ops recruit. Kennedy then assigns Cold War veteran Stan Hurley to train Mitch. Together they will later on investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on military and civilian targets. The discovery of a pattern in the violence leads them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative intent on starting a world war in the Middle East.

Enjoyable and action packed Spy Film
29 September 2017 | by Lancaster16See all my reviews

American Assassin had all you could hope for from a spy film. The acting was good, the fight scenes were realistic, great action through the whole movie and a decent story line. Dylan O'Brien and Micheal Keaton wouldn't be my A-team for a spy film, but they played their roles well. Still not on the level of the Bourne Series, 007 and Mission Impossible. But still a good spy flick. Will be on the lookout for a sequel.
