A modern classic

I had very low expectations for this movie. I was sure it was going to be either western or anti-western propaganda. It was neither.

The opening scene simply blew me away. It captures the panic, powerlessness and despair of a terrorist attack, like no other movie I have seen. It felt unnervingly reel, but is properly a little politically incorrect and I suspect that is why this great movie is so ridiculously underrated. The acting and cinematic quality is excellent throughout the whole movie. Go see this movie if you want to see a classic vengeance sotry that doesn't try to throw a political message down your throat.

only Michael Keaton?

This film has Michael Keaton performance and this is all it got. scenario is weak and has political aspects which has no real connection to iran foreign affairs. we have not any political group like what exist in movie. in iran we have 2 majority party and both of them plays by Leader's sight. they can't do whatever they want like on other countries because they are not independent. this film has many false points which looks ridiculous. good start bad ending. without Michael Keaton = waste.

Generic, by the numbers thriller with nothing new to say

STAR RATING: ***** Saturday Night **** Friday Night *** Friday Morning ** Sunday Night * Monday Morning

Mitch Rapp (Dylan O' Brien) is a young American, who decides to propose to his girlfriend at a beachside holiday resort, only for his happiness to be brutally and tragically cut short when armed terrorists storm the place and randomly kill various people, including his love. Consumed with rage and anger, he comes to the attention of CIA bigwig Irene kennedy (Sanaa Lathan), who decides he would have the perfect attributes to be a great operative, but to channel his aggression properly, she sends him to be trained by renowned agent Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton.) Rapp is put to the test when he is partnered with Iranian agent Annika (Shiva Negar) after a large amount of plutonium is stolen in Russia to be used for a terrorist attack in America.

The phenomenon, and certainly the threat, of armed terrorists storming unsecured beachside resorts and taking innocent casualties is certainly one that's very relevant and timely at the moment, especially with real life incidents in places such as Tunisia, and so there's certainly potential to be had with American Assassin. Sadly, director Michael Cuesta has produced something utterly bland and formulaic, that offers no surprises or anything in the way of something you haven't seen many times before, usually arriving straight to DVD and starring Steven Seagal.

The film just fails to really evolve into anything truly inspiring or new, not really holding your attention for the whole two hours, despite having such a promising story torn from today's headlines which it has nothing interesting to say on. With nothing to offer in terms of originality, it descends into ridiculousness, becoming the type of film where a shoot out can be taking place in a hotel room, and nobody pokes their heads out of theirs to see what's going on, much less try and run away. There are one or two decent action sequences, especially towards the end, but they're too few and far between to really hold sway.

Performances wise, O' Brien is credible and has presence in the lead role, but he does nothing anybody else couldn't have done. All eyes, unsurprisingly, are on comeback kid Keaton, in a typically zany supporting role, and, even more unsurprisingly, stealing the show. Indeed he, out of all of them, really makes you wonder what he had in mind. **
