It’s nice to see that Michael Keaton is back on the big screen. From playing the founder of McDonald’s to, now, a trainer of assassins.
The film does have the feel of the 2002 Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Collateral Damage. A tale of revenge after a murder because of terrorism.
AMERICAN ASSASSIN follows the rise of Mitch Rapp, a CIA black ops recruit under the instruction of Cold War veteran Stan Hurley. The pair are then enlisted by CIA Deputy Director Irene Kennedy to investigate a wave of apparently random attacks on both military and civilian targets. Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent to stop a mysterious operative intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
