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.

User Reviews

Sam Worthington
25 January 2019 | by KirpianuscusSee all my reviews

It is his film. Scene by scene. Cliche by cliche. An action film like many others, mixing the vulnerable girl, hunted by bad guy for a sin of her father, a lonely sentimental killer protecting her, fights, violence, drugs. The worse part is the dialogue. The best - the effort to be more than a simplistic action-thriller, with not so bad end. A film about honor and fatherhood who escapes to the temptation to be a simple sketch but proposing few scenes of old fashion . With a decent result.
