    This movie was only in the theaters for what seemed like a couple weeks...so I went in with low expectations, but, as an action-flick escape film, this movie was very good. First hour is stronger than the last hour, true, as that seems to be almost all non-stop action for that first hour, but it's an exciting spy flick with some good characters. If you love action flicks, like John WIck, then you'll enjoy this movie. It's as entertaining as Atomic Blonde, but doesn't have the great soundtrack.

    If US forces accidentally killed the entire family of a Middle Eastern person, and then that person became a terrorist, we would judge that person harshly. The plot of this movie is that the protagonist's family was killed by terrorists so he then goes on a killing spree. ???!!! I'm somewhat ashamed for the actors that they didn't have a problem with this plot. Folks in Hollywood need to take more responsibility for making the world a better place and not spreading propaganda and hypocritical views. Killing sprees because somebody else harmed you is not OK no matter who's doing it.

    I couldn’t help but point out that the writers made certain that us viewers would connect terrorism to actual practicing Muslims. Not only did they make overt questions like ‘do you practice’ a prerequisite for being ‘for the cause’ they made sure that even the one seemingly good Muslim character was actually a bad apple. I’m not sure what war these people want Americans to rally behind, it the racist message is made clear, you can’t trust practicing Muslims.

    Another in a long line of generic, anti-Arab, pro Israeli plots, underscored with poor acting, lousy character development and superficial political agendas. Truly a film for the mindless, written and performed by the mindless.
  • Great movie

    It has its moments, but let's be honest, this plot is just plain tired...

    The leeding man looks like he's 16. The plot does not keep your attention I kept dozing off trying to watch it. Save your money!
  • A much better version of what you've seen before

    While it is true that this story line of personal tragedy giving birth to unbridled revenge that is channeled into patriotic employ is not new, it is a rendition superior to anything you've previously seen. Dylan O'Brien is utterly convincing as are many of the supporting actors. David Suchet has a minor part, but he is so captivating in his scenes that you have the feeling you could easily enjoy watching him read a phone book. The special effects when the waves threaten aircraft carriers and other ships is breathtaking, truly one of the most awe-inspiring things I've ever seen in a film. The fight scenes are top notch, and there was gratefully no stupidly contrived steamy romance scenes. This is meant to be a thrill ride. It is. Bottom line: you've been on this kind of roller coaster before. So what? It's a better ride, so just enjoy!
