Surprisingly entertaining.
25 October 2015 | by emberstonepierceSee all my reviews

This action thriller is surprisingly entertaining. Unlike most political action movies, the plot in based around a strong female lead and has an interesting and exciting narrative. There's plenty of action, car chases, fight scenes and more, for those who like an action packed movie, as well as an engaging story with plenty of twists and turns. Although this film doesn't really bring anything new to the table, it's a very entertaining way to spend 90 minutes and I'd recommend it to all fans of the genre. Excellent acting and a lot of familiar faces within the cast ensure this will become a firm favourite of many viewers.
