Black ops recruit Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien) is reeling from the death of his fiancée in a terrorist attack when he is assigned to shadowy CIA figure Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton) to receive special training in tracking terrorists. Rapp and Hurley are then dispatched to join a Turkish agent on a mission to stop a mysterious operative from unleashing chaos of international proportions.




  • Lost potential

    By blueespy
    This movie had potential but I think Michael Keaton sunk it. His acting is exactly has it has been over the years; uses the same mannerisms, facial expressions, if you seen one of his movies you've seen them all. The story line is a stretch - riding the coat tails of movies like Bourne series. Not worth the money.
  • Read the book!

    What a shame. This could have been the beginning of a great series but it just fell flat. Take time to read the books.
  • Excellent

    Way better than Bond movies and Sicario garbage. Definitely worth watching. Rotten Tomatoes is WAY off on this one.
  • Not very good

    By Rambo8649
    I liked Michael Keaton and the lead actor, but thats it. I thought the movie was really poorly done. Some people are comparing this to the Bourne franchise. No, the Bourne movies are a great deal better than this movie, there is no comparison.
  • Great movie!!

    Keaton is worth watching he’s good. The sidekick kid however never sells. Seriously, he’s being trained by a SEAL but can’t correctly hold a handgun. Maybe that’s the directors fault? Good concept but Poorly cast aside from Keaton just doesn’t sell
  • Not true to the book and a mediocre film at best

    By Zacph
    I expected some deviations from the book but this film took too many liberties for my taste. Even ignoring that and just looking at it as a generic counter-terrorism, OGA assasin type film it wasn't that great. A few decent fight scenes and some half decent characters but all in I'd gie it 2 to 3 stars. I'm a huge fan of all of Vince Flynn's novels and really hope they give this another shot with a new writer, director, actors, etc.
