ReelViews for 'Action/Thriller' movies
"American Assassin" is as generic an espionage thriller as you’re likely to find.
Tumbles into the lamentable category of what happens when a movie is assembled for no reason other than to make money, and when everyone involved is doing it for the paycheck.
Brash, energetic, and exhilarating, any points it loses because of a lack of originality are gained back as a result of Theron’s dedication.
A glorious, hyperkinetic mess and, although it never quite takes flight, it at least holds the attention.
