Storyline

This high octane thriller focuses on Lucas, (Sam Worthington), a solitary assassin, hired to kill a young woman, Ella, (Odeya Rush). When he can't bring himself to pull the trigger the plan falls apart, setting in motion a twisted game of cat and mouse. Now both are marked for death and forced to form an uneasy alliance. Relentlessly pursued across Europe, their only hope for survival is to expose those responsible for brutally murdering her family and bring them to justice.

Moderately watchable
15 June 2017 | by phd_travelSee all my reviews

For some reason this thriller is fairly involving and you want to see what happens - but it isn't a must watch.

Sam Worthington is the assassin turned protector and he has a rather inexpressive face. Bland and emotionless. Don't think he conveyed a junkie convincingly. His accent is hard to understand.

Odeya Rush reminds of a younger Mila Kunis - quite appealing.

The actor Allen Leech who plays the villain acted as the chauffeur Tom from Downton Abbey. He isn't convincing - can't help thinking of him as the help of the bad guy rather than the evil bad guy.

The chase via car and train etc through a rather bleak wintry Europe is unnecessarily unattractive..
