AMERICAN ASSASSIN (2017) Graphice Review

  • By John Robert
  • 15 Sep, 2017

REVIEW
It has been called an alternate version of the Jason Bourne flicks where the Treadstone assassination program are the good guys. All the fundamental life questions are at play: Who am I? What is my purpose? Where am I going? The value of such films as this is they help us in answering those questions in our own lives. Aside from all this, it’s a very good action film.

Together the three discover a pattern in the violence leading them to a joint mission with a lethal Turkish agent (Shiva Negar) to stop a mysterious operative (Taylor Kitsch) intent on starting a World War in the Middle East.
