Someone is blackmailing the CIA by assassinating foreign journalists and making it look like the agency is responsible.

Basic but serviceable action flick with the usual cast of cliched US "good guys" vs your standard fare villains.This films not going to set the world on fire but its not dreadful, either. Pacing is decent and acting is okay. In summary, if you like the occasional simple, exposition driven action flick, this is worth a look.

Woooooooow. Cheap, cheap, cheap thrills. Bricklayer does this one knee slide at one point - kick ass. Kate shoots through him at guy speeding away on motor bike, Bricklayer doesn't even flinch. Bricklayer rules. Amazing. Thanks, team.

This light on action abomination, posing as an action movie, is dumber than a bag of bricklayers. They actually shoe horn in him being a bricklayer, who brings his brick tools on cia missions, and he actually gets to use his trowel to find some secrete crap in a wall, oops, i mean, spoiler alert. Oh, and he really loves jazz, cause hes sophisticated, despite being a dumb fuck bricklayer. Contrived would be generous. Shakey-cam cut-frenzy horse shit action, check, chauvinistic writing for the lady, check, 80 percent of the movie shot reverse shot conversations in a nondescript room, check. Production levels are around the low tier network tv show area, think seal team and that sort of trash.
