Entertaining if not also kind of forgettable action-thriller. The three leads, Maggie Q, Michael Keaton and Samuel L. Jackson, have some bad-ass scenes and there are some suspenseful scenes, but as a whole, didn't really think it's all that different from what has been seen before. In fact, I think 2018's Anna might've been a tad better. The finale also was perplexing. They make a big deal on how hard it was to get onto an island yet they (Maggie Q and Jackson) just are there, no scenes on how. That said, I did think Maggie Q and Michael Keaton were great together and Martin Campbell's direction was fine, although did far better work on GoldenEye and Casino Royale. I think this is fine as a rental. Don't know how much replay value it has. **3.25/5**
