THE FOREIGNER

Janet's TAKE: #ForeignerMovie is slower-paced than most Jackie Chan flicks but he and Brosnan make formidable adversaries. C

A surprisingly emotional Chan makes the movie worth seeing.  There are just too many
details to follow between the spurts of action. The plot gets bogged down in British/IRA political intrigue.


Synopsis:
The Foreigner, starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan, is a timely action thriller from the director of "Casino Royale." The film tells the story of humble London businessman Quan (Chan), whose long-buried past erupts in a revenge-fueled vendetta when the only person left for him to love -- his teenage daughter -- is taken from him in a senseless act of politically-motivated terrorism. In his relentless search for the identity of the terrorists, Quan is forced into a cat-and-mouse conflict with a British government official (Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers. -STX Entertainment
