SYNOPSIS
Long before CIA super agent Mitch Rapp was a terrorist's worst nightmare and was quietly loathed and publicly lauded by the politicians on Capital Hill, he was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world, but then tragedy struck. Following this misfortune, Rapp was resurrected from the ashes and recruited to a new life in the nation's most elite covert operations program. Now he is a man reborn with a mission of retribution.

Verdict: Dylan O'Brien and Michael Keaton make a lethal combo. It's been a while since we saw a good CIA movie. American Assassin is here to fill that void. The latest addition to Hollywood's growing list of CIA agents brought to screen from books is Mitch Rapp (Dylan O'Brien). He might be new, but he would []... ...Read full review
With such a large glut of thrillers out there both in cinemas and TV, its hard to pay attention to yet another movie about an assassin. American Assassin, yet another entry in the dude out for revenge using his special skills sub genre, is predictably run of the mill entertainment without much to make any lasting impact. ...Read full review

It has become difficult for the spy/ assassin film genre to differentiate one entry from the other. In many ways, they all come across as clones following some minor variation of the same generic plot points. `American Assassin` is no different from what we`ve seen before in the likes of `John Wick` and `Jason Bourne`, but at least it`s captivating enough to keep you entertained throughout its runtime. You`d probably suffer from a serious case of deja vu through it, but if you need a fix of nail-biting action, you`ll definitely get your money`s worth. ...Read full review
The malfunctioning studio system has foisted many subprime ideas upon us recently, but this opportunistic, Trump-age hybrid of war-on-terror drama and YA fantasy numbers among the junkiest. Ex-Maze Runner Dylan OBrien plays Mitch Rapp, an emotionally volatile sort picked up by the CIA after pursuing the sleeper cell who gunned down his holidaying fiancee in one early breach of basic cinematic decency. Thereafter hes assigned Aviator-sporting ex-Navy Seal mentor Stan Hurley (Michael Keaton, bent once more towards career self-sabotage), passed through whizzy VR training exercises and dispatched to Europe alongside a babelicious colleague to recover a stray nuke while generally kicking ass for the US of A. As Hurley growls it: Some bad people plan on doing some bad things, and its our job to stop em. ...Read full review
