The Foreigner

716LYFLTnJL. SL1500  722x1024 The Foreigner

Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan star in The Foreigner, a timely action thriller from the director of “Casino Royale” and “Goldeneye.” Chan stars as humble London businessman Quan, 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 (Pierce Brosnan), whose own past may hold clues to the identities of the elusive killers.

Hey, remember that film where a dude has something taken from him (daughter / son / family / wife / dog) and it turns out that he’s a prior (special ops / grizzeled cop / hitman / god)?

That’s what this is, though there’s some REALLY good acting on Jackie Chan’s part and some REALLY confusing accents from my favorite ex James Bond.
