Good performances and bloody action hit this busted corn tension. This predictable story does not have much to think about. Michael Finch, Marshall Herskovitz, Stephen Schiff and Edward Zwick wrote a script based on Vince Flynn’s same novel – one in a series of books by Mitch Rapp.
Do too many cooks contaminate the water? Not quite, but close. It is a bit of fun to enjoy this mostly non-mental adventure. Directed by Michael Cuesta (“Kill Messenger”), he is standing up fast and covering the plot holes to answer answers along the way. Lead casting raises this movie quality.
