Storyline

Dying of brain cancer, a dangerous international spy is determined to give up his high stakes life to finally build a closer relationship with his estranged wife and daughter, whom he's previously kept at arm's length to keep out of danger; but first, he must complete one last mission - even if it means juggling the two toughest assignments yet: hunt down the world's most ruthless terrorist and look after his teenage daughter for the first time in ten years while his wife is out of town. Written by Relativity Media

Uh!
23 February 2014 | by grwx-916-213653See all my reviews

I wish I had stayed at home and watched Netflix. This story failed to depict Ethan (Costner) as having any kind of genuine relationship with his wife, daughter or spook colleagues.

Other than the usual shoot-em-up action scenes in which random bullets always find the bad guys, the terminally ill hero Ethan came across as a sick, boring has-been who allowed himself to be cowed and manipulated by a sadistic CIA agent, Vivi, who came as close to being a dominatrix without actually being one (I think). Like, what else can I say when Vivi straddles him while he is lying on the street looking up between her legs? The daughter, Zooey, came across as a revivified Valley Girl whose dorky boyfriend, Hugh, would have looked quite at home singing in a quartet with Pat Boone.
