American Assassin (2017) Rated R

After the death of his girlfriend, Mitch Rapp is looking for revenge, when he is recruited by the CIA. Based on the book by Vince Flynn. Starring Dylan O’Brien, Charlotte Vega, Christopher Bomford, Michael Keaton, Sanaa Lathan, Shiva Negar, Scott Adkins, Taylor Kitsch.

This typical action thriller does not stay true to the book, to its detriment. O’Brien did a fantastic job portraying a man seeking revenge after the death of his girlfriend. It was also great to see Keaton back in action. They really were the best  the film had to offer, because the movie itself was mediocre. There were plot holes in the script and unrealistic military maneuvers. There was plenty of action, but it was just okay. This film is a pass.
