The Foreigner, 2017 – 3.5/5

A straight forward political thriller about a man (Jackie Chan) out for revenge for the death of his daughter at the hands of the IRA.

Chan is a mysterious nobody with a dark past who inadvertently gets caught up in a bombing plot and works to track down the killers. The action is much more quick and not as flashy as you might expect from Jackie Chan, but he isn’t as young as he used to be and is convincing in the role. Pierce Brosnan plays the head of the IRA, who is also working to find out who has betrayed him from within his organization.

It’s a decent film all around, though nothing exceptionally amazing in any one category.
