Storyline

Making a rare foray into rock 'em, sock 'em action territory, Hawke plays a CIA agent who sacrifices everything for his employers, including his family and, ultimately, his own life. No sooner has he shuffled off this mortal coil, though, than he finds himself mysteriously resurrected for one last mission that's timed to last exactly 24 hours. Once the countdown clock embedded in his arm reaches zero, he'll once again nod off into an eternal slumber if he hasn't completed his task. Before that happens, expect him to wreak bloody havoc on both his targets and his former CIA minders. Written by Yahoo Entertainment

A great Ethan Hawke action movie
4 November 2017 | by jon-22643See all my reviews

i give this movie 8/10 yep i'm sure you wonder how come, so let me explain there's nothing in this movie you haven't seen before but there is something different about it, you'll have to see it to see what i mean it's a mix of action, thriller, and fiction, but it's Ethan Hawke that makes it all fit. i'm a fan of Ethan Hawke, and in this movie he does what i enjoy to see him best - kick ass, and he delivers. the movie flows, smoothly, and non-stop. sure it has some holes in it, most movies have, but at the end you'll get a great dose of Ethan Hawke action, which in parts can remind John Wick, one man vs dozens of well armed and trained killers. the movie takes place in south Africa so the location makes the movie more exotic and bit more real. the actions scenes and well made, the actors are making a good job, and the movie won't stuck in long dialog or boring takes. it's a great fun movie for those who would like to enjoy some good action, Ethan Hawke is a great action actor, i wish he had much more roles like this he can handle it great (he did have parts in action flicks since Training Day), the way he moves, shoots, drive, and bleeding is simply so authentic you can just lay back and enjoy.

although there are some twists in the movie, any veteran would predict them in advance, but for me, the entire movie, from the first scene to the last was pure enjoyment, do not expect too much and you'll be surprised, highly recommended!
