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.
