Stephen King fans can rejoice that Hollywood has done justice to one of the author’s scary books.
Although not the definitive Watergate movie, it illustrates an aspect that has not been given ample attention by filmmakers.
The most compelling reason to see "The Foreigner" is Chan, whose step into new territory reveals things we haven’t previously seen from him.
